Operations appear to be in full swing at Jawa, with the company recently starting deliveries from multiple dealerships across the country. At the launch of the company, Jawa had revealed an ambitious target of over 100 dealerships to be set up in a few months. And it has managed to achieve that target with the company announcing via a tweet that the 100th showroom will be opening later this week.
The tweet revealed that dealerships will be opening in Tirupati, Hubli, Jamshedpur and Tinsukia, taking the total number of dealerships past the 100 mark. Jawa has managed to do this in a span of four months with its first showroom opening in Pune, back in mid-December.
Currently, two Jawa motorcycles are on sale – the Jawa and Forty Two. Both motorcycles are powered by the same 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, DOHC engine that produces 27hp and 28Nm of peak torque. Recently, the company also revealed an ARAI-certified fuel-efficiency figure of 37.5kpl.
The Jawa and the Forty Two are available as single-channel and dual-channel ABS variants. The Jawa and Forty Two are priced at Rs 1.64 lakh and Rs 1.55 lakh (single-channel ABS variants), and at Rs 1.72 lakh and Rs 1.63 lakh (dual-channel ABS variants). The single-channel ABS bikes get a rear drum brake, while the dual-channel ABS bikes get a disc at the rear.
