Mahindra Group subsidiary Classic Legends have brought back the Jawa brand in India. Two 300 cc motorcycles have been introduced, one is just called Jawa and the other one as Jawa 42. Priced at Rs 1.64 lakh and Rs 1.55 lakh (ex-Delhi), respectively.
The design of the bikes is pretty much a replica rather than a modern day iteration like the Concept KX. However, you do find some modern day bits like the front 280 mm disc brake with floating caliper and ABS. At the rear, there’s a 153 mm drum brake, probably for nostalgic reasons. Also notice the tiny LCD display in the analogue instrument cluster.

The Jawa is available in 3 colors – Grey, Maroon and Black. The Jawa 42 has more – Nebula Blue, Comet Red, Starlight Blue, Lumos Lime, Halley’s Teal and Galactic Blue.
Powering both motorcycles is a 293 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, developing 27 bhp and 28 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
Kerb weight of both motorcycles is 170 kg, and fuel tank capacity is 14 litres.
The third motorcycle is called Perak, a custom bobber, priced at Rs 1.89 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi. The Perak is powered by a 334 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 30 bhp and 31 Nm of torque. This one gets discs at both ends and unlike the other two, looks a bit more modern.
Bookings can be done online. For the Perak, bookings will open at a later date.
