    Jawa’s parent company Classic Legends is also working hard to revive the Yezdi and BSA brands.

    Jawa will increase its current tally of 187 showrooms to 275 by August 2021, and further to 500 showrooms nationwide by June 2022. Parent company Classic Legends is also on course to revive the BSA brand, and an electric motorcycle is on the cards. 

    • Jawa launched the new Forty Two in February this year 

    • Brand claims to have ramped up production capabilities, but its suppliers face issues

    • Revived BSA brand will feature electric as well as petrol-engined models

    Having gotten off to a bit of a rocky start, Jawa was just about beginning to get its act together with the launch of the new Forty Two in February, when a second wave of COVID-19 engulfed the nation. Undeterred by the setback, the brand still has ambitious plans for the near future.

    Jawa showroom expansion

    It currently has a presence through 187 showrooms across 150 cities in India. The plan is to grow this number to 275 showrooms by August 2021 and to 500 showrooms by June 2022.

    Jawa delivery timelines

    Jawa has been marred by a reputation of failing to deliver motorcycles on time. To rectify this, the manufacturer claims to have increased its own production capacity. However, many of its suppliers have been severely affected by the lockdown, and dealerships have also had to remain closed, as a result of which deliveries continue to be impacted.

    BSA revival, electric motorcycle

    Jawa's parent company Classic Legends is also well on its way to reviving the legendary BSA Motorcycles brand. Of course, there are petrol-powered models in the pipeline, but the big news is that BSA is also working on an electric motorcycle. This is thanks to a 4.6 million pound (Rs 41.67 crore) grant from the UK Government, as part of a low carbon automotive initiative across the UK. BSA was awarded this grant by the UK government’s Advanced Propulsion Centre for development of innovative zero emission motorcycles.

    Yezdi revival

    Classic Legends also owns the rights to the Yezdi brand and is hard at work resurrecting it and developing new models. The first new bike to carry a Yezdi badge is expected to be a scrambler-style model that's already been spotted testing on our roads
