The return of the Jawa brand to the Indian market was one of the most-awaited comebacks. Soon after the announcement of the Jawa bikes launching in the Indian market, many booked their bikes and since the deliveries of the bikes were to be started a few months later, the waiting period on the bikes kept on increasing. Currently, there are many customers who have booked their bikes but the delivery of the bikes are expected to happen in a few months. For the enthusiasts who want the bike without waiting now have a way to do it.
A couple of owners of the Jawa motorcycles have listed their bike on the OLX for sale. Both the advertisements ask for more than the on-road price for the bike but you do get the no-waiting period advantage. The cheapest all-new Jawa selling on the Internet gets a price tag of Rs 1.91 lakh and it is from Chattisgarh. The Maroon coloured bike has run 1,800 km and it is a 2019 model, which means it is only a few months old. This bike seems to be one of the first Jawa bikes that rolled out of the plant as it gets the chassis number – 00107.
It also gets extra accessories like grab rail, crash guard and a carrier. From the pictures, this bike looks to be in an immaculate condition and seems to be in the showroom condition. Also, the advertisement mentions that the bike gets 5-year insurance, which will make the ownership experience worry-free.
The second advertisement is from Gujarat and the bike here is of a different colour. This advertisement mentions the price of Rs 2.12 lakh, which is much higher than the on-road price of Rs 1.86 lakh in Navsari, Gujarat. The bike has done only 500 km run according to the odometer. The seller has mentioned that the bike comes with 5-year insurance. Also, it comes with a VIP number.
Both the bikes are selling at a premium than the on-road price. While the Chattisgarh advert is asking for Rs 1.91 lakh, which is Rs 5,000 more than the on-road price, the price Gujarat ad is Rs 16,000 more than the regular on-road price.
Should you get it?
If you like the product and don’t want to wait for long to get your hands on it, why not? The registration certificate, however, will mention that the bike has been previously owned, which may bring down the resale value of the bike in the future. However, if you’re planning to keep the bike and use it for more than five years, such things should not matter at all. In the past, many Jawa customers who made the bookings tried to sell their booking references for a premium price. However, Jawa mentioned that the booking is non-transferrable.
