Jawa Motorcycles has just unveiled three new bikes for 2019 —the Jawa, Jawa Forty Two and the Jawa Perak Bobber.
Classic Legends, the subsidiary of Mahindra that’s building the all-new Jawa’s, has chosen to stick to the Czech-brands historic roots, building a trio of motorcycles which are decidedly retro – and honestly, they really look the part.
Resurrected by Classic Legends, the all new Jawa range comprises of a Classic, a Sport and a Bobber model. The Classic version is quite simply called Jawa, taking inspiration from the iconic Czech brands original 1929 machine – but it looks like it’s come straight from the 70’s. It gets spoked wheels, a two-tone fuel tank, a bunch of chrome accents – and an airbox that’s shaped to look like the unit seen on the original Jawa 350 from the 70s and 80s. Its new sport model, the Jawa 42 gets a flatter set of handlebars for a sportier riding stance, blacked out front forks, an offset instrument console and a round halogen headlamp.
The Jawa and Jawa 42 are powered by the same 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor that’s been designed by Classic Legends. It packs in 26.6bhp of power and 28Nm of torque – and the folks at Classic Legends claim that the motor provides a generous mid-range with a flat torque curve. Plus, Jawa purists will be happy to hear that the engineers have had a good go at replicating the throaty grunt of its original Jawa machines, despite it now being a four-stroke.
That’s not all – Jawa also showcased its new factory custom Bobber, called the Perak. The Perak is powered by a larger displacement 334cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylider DOHC engine that develops 30bhp of power and 31Nm of torque.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on one of the new Jawas – then you can prebook by clicking HERE. But at this stage, we’re not sure when the bikes will actually make it over to British shoes – particularly considering there’s only one UK based Jawa dealer.
