Jawa Motorcycle was resurrected in the Indian market after an absence of several years. Classic Legends, a new brand set-up with Mahindra and Mahindra confirmed the launch of the Yezdi brand and the BSA brand in the Indian market. The announcement was made by Anupam Thareja, the co-founder of Classic Legends.
Now, a new handle of Instagram, which goes by the name of YezdiOfficial has been made live. Also, the description of the Instagram page states that it is the official handle of the Yezdi Motorcycles in India. There is also an official Yezdi website listed in the details. Now it should be noted that there is no official word on the launch of the all-new Yezdi motorcycles in India yet. Also, the timeline of the launch of the Yezdi bikes is not known. However, since the Auto Expo 2020 is fast approaching, it may become the perfect platform for the brand to showcase the new generation product.
It should be noted that Classic Legends have the rights to use of Jawa brand in India and a few other Asian markets. The same goes for the Yezdi and the BSA brand. While it is not known when the upcoming BSA and the Yezdi bikes will be launched in the Indian market, we can assure you that the upcoming bikes will see a lot of inputs from the Mahindra and Mahindra. In fact, the engine powering the Jawa motorcycles in India is derived from the engine that powers the Mahindra Mojo. In the future, a similar sharing can be done which will keep the cost of the new products affordable. Sharing parts brings down the development costs massively, which in turn affects the price of the final product.
The Yezdi range has been around for a long time in India. A few legendary bikes that became extremely popular in India are the Road King, Oil King, Classic, CL-II, Monarch, Deluxe, 350 and 175 models. Since the Yezdi range of bikes will be all-new India, the exact details are not known. However, Yezdi bikes may get the same re-tuned versions of the engine that is powering the Jawa range. The Jawa bikes have become extremely popular in India after their official launch last year. The deliveries of the bikes have begun earlier this year and there is still a huge waiting period on the bikes.
Jawa announced two engine types that the brand will use. One of the engines is the 293cc, four-stroke liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 27 Bhp and peak torque of 28 Nm. In the future, Jawa will launch the more powerful Perak, which will come powered by a 334cc, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum of 30 Bhp and peak torque of 31 Nm.
