    Making things more interesting were some motorcycles with sidecars. An ideal choice for families, sidecars were a common thing associated with vintage motorcycles. The military also used to employ motorcycles with sidecars, either to carry an extra soldier or ammunition.

    It is not an easy task to bring such classic motorcycles to immaculate conditions. For example, the Jawa you see here is a result of over seven years of looking after. Many parts had to be imported from around the world.

    In addition to Jawa and Yezdi motorcycles, there were some iconic Indian classics too, including the Yamaha RD350. No classic motorcycle meet seems to be complete without the participation of the RD350. Why? The answer lies - here!

    There was also a parallel-twin Royal Enfield which gained a lot of attention - the Constellation. The motorcycle sounded incredible and was beyond pristine. Upon first glance, one can be sure that its owner has given utmost importance to detail. The Royal Enfield Constellation has a 700cc engine that made around 52bhp; an impressive figure for its time.

    About Jawa Motorcycles In India


  • 16th International Jawa Day Celebrations Bangalore 2018 — A Look Back To Yesterday’s Motorcycles

    Some of the important models which were sold by Ideal Jawa were:

    • Jawa 250
    • Jawa 50 Jet
    • Yezdi 250
    • Yezdi 250 Classic
    • Yezdi 250 Roadking
    • Yezdi 250 Monarch
    • Yezdi 175 Deluxe
    • Yezdi 350 Twin

    The company was shut down in 1996 mainly due to the strict emission norms which burdened two-strokes. In addition to this, many other brands introduced four-stroke motorcycles which proved to be more reliable and fuel-efficient than two-strokes. But Jawa motorcycles might make a comeback soon.

    Thoughts On The 16th Jawa Day Celebrations

    Jawa and Yezdi motorcycles have played an important in India's biking scene. Since Jawa motorcycles were stopped from production long back, many are not even aware of such a brand today.

    The 16th Jawa Day Celebrations hosted by Bangalore Jawa Yezdi Motorcycle Club created an opportunity for like-minded enthusiasts to meet each other and share their passion towards motorcycles. Thanks to such motorcycle groups, these classic machines will forever live to see the change in Indian motoring.
