The Jawa in black colour gets a golden lining and this works really well with the retro design theme as deliveries are expected to commence soon
Jawa Motorcycles officially announced its re-entry to India last month and the second innings started with three new models – Jawa Classic, Forty-Two and Perak. The company has officially commenced bookings of Jawa Classic and Forty Two in India as the former is available in three colour options – Grey, Marron and Black.
Jawa in black looks classy as the design and everything blends very well. The fuel tank along with engine, exhaust and suspension are finished in chrome while other body panels are finished in black colour with a golden lining, which works really well with the design theme. To complete the retro look, mirrors also get the chrome finish.
The company has given a basic instrument cluster for Classic with an analogue speedometer and fuel gauge. The handlebar is a single piece unit and the quality of materials appears to be top notch. The front get round headlamp and indicators and the company has given a single piece seat. The rear also gets retro theme tail lamps and a new design for the fender.
The handlebar along with a forward set foot pegs gives a comfortable riding position for the Classic as the company is positioning it against the Royal Enfield Classic series. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and gas charged dual shock absorbers at the rear, which is tuned for comfort.
The wheelbase of Jawa Classic is 1369 mm and the seat height is 765 mm. Like its arch-rival, the Classic tips the scale at 170 kgs and the company has given 14-litre fuel tank. The Classic and Forty Two are powered by same 293 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled 4 stroke engine producing 27 bhp of power and 28 Nm of torque, mated to constant mesh 6-speed gearbox.
The braking power comes from 280 mm single disc at front and 153 mm drum at rear with single channel ABS system as standard. The Classic gets 18-inch wheel at front with 90/90 section tyre and 17-inch wheel at rear with 120/80 section tyre. Jawa priced the Classic model at Rs. 1,64,000 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
