Classic Legends had unveiled the Jawa Perak earlier, and had intended to launch it in the domestic markets earlier this year, however the company pushed the launch in order to concentrate on production and delivery of the Jawa and the Jawa 42, a task they have been fairly unsuccessful at.
While the Jawa Perak is based on the Jawa, it has a number of features that make it stand apart from the other models the company sells. The front set up, and the fuel tank however, are basically the same as the Jawa and the Jawa 42 models.
Changes to the design feature a revised exhaust and fender, a floating-type single seat, a longer swingarm as compared to the swingarm found on both the Jawa and the Forty Two, and a mono-shock at the rear instead of instead of the standard twin shocks.
Feature a 334cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 30bhp of power and 31Nm of torque. Performance numbers are up by 3bhp and 3Nm when compared to the Jawa and the Jawa 42. The Jawa Perak features a six-speed manual transmission.
The company had earlier said that they would make an announcement on 15 November, and this would also include future plans. As is, Classic Legends is planning to launch four new models over the next 18 months, details of which could possibly be shared at the launch.
Classic Legends has previously announced that the Jawa Perak would be priced at a Rs 1.89 lakh mark, however we think the motorcycle will be priced around the Rs. 1.75 lakh mark. All prices mentioned are ex-showroom, India.
Thoughts About The Perak Being Launched On 15 November
Well, we're waiting to see what comes with the Perak. The Jawa and the Jawa 42 brought with them poor production numbers, poor quality, and issues revolving around rust, deliveries, and broken delivery estimators. The company has worked hard to reduce waiting periods and we hope that they have a smooth run with the Perak. If not, they might as well not launch any more motorcycles until they have a smooth operator for a process.
Classic Legends is all set to launch the Jawa Perak on 15 November. The date marks Jawa's return to the country. The Perak was unveiled earlier, along with the Jawa and the Jawa 42, but its launch was postponed for later this year.
