Following on from a spy shot of Jawa’s all-new retro styled 300 which was doing the round on social media a couple of weeks ago, the Indian-based brand has just released a short teaser video showing the bike in action, ahead of its official launch later this week.
The new 300 looks very close to the Jawa’s of yesteryear – but it’s no classic machine. Production is no longer based in Prague, instead it’s being built in India – by Mahindra Group’s Classic Legends (who also own the BSA brand).

The leaked image follows on from Jawa’s big reveal of its new 300cc powerplant a few weeks’ ago. At this stage, we don’t know much about the new engine – aside from a handful of key figures. In essence, it’s a 293cc single-cylinder engine, with liquid-cooling, fuel injection and a four-valve DOHC valvetrain. It kicks out a claimed 27bhp and 28Nm of torque – which Classic Legends Boss, Ashish Joshi has said is delivered in a flat torque curve. Nothing ground-breaking – but it sounds like the perfect unit for Jawa’s modern retro reboot.
