The Indian factory is beginning to export its 300CL into Europe.

The Mahindra-owned Classic Legends brand has started to export the Jawa Standard motorbike into to Europe. Although we expected it was on the way, there’s still been no official confirmation from the factory. But the retro-styled machine has been listed on the company’s European web portal, which suggests we won’t have to wait too much longer to see it in the flesh.


The European version looks identical to the Indian model – but will instead draw power from a Euro 4-compliant 294.7cc single cylinder engine which makes 22.5hp at 7,000rpm and 25Nm of peak torque at 5,750rpm. But with Euro 5 emissions regulations being widely enforced at the start of next year – that engine isn’t going to be around for a long time.

The whole bike features a reasonably basic, retro design – with a double-cradle frame, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a flat-seat, a round headlamp, mirrors, a chrome-finished exhaust pipe, analogue clocks and spoked wheels. There is single channel ABS though – to help the front disc and rear drum brakes. Suspension is looked after by a set of telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear.

The Euro 4-compliant Jawa 300 CL is expected to cost just shy of £5,500 (which is about €6,000). But at the moment, there’s no news on availability. For more information on getting your hands on a Jawa in the UK – click HERE.
