Bookings for the new Jawa Perak will commence on January 1, 2020, from 6pm onwards. Prospective customers can book the Perak bobber online, at the Jawa India website as well as at its dealerships. While bookings begin this evening, deliveries will only start from April 2, 2020 onwards.
The Jawa Perak was launched in November 2019, at Rs 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), making this the most affordable factory-made bobber in the country. Bobber motorcycles are lifestyle products and aren't supposed to cater to the practical motorcycle buyer; which explains the low-slung design and the lack of a pillion seat.
The Perak looks markedly different than its siblings, the Jawa and the Forty Two. The bike also gives up all the chrome for a matte-black treatment. The bobber-like styling elements include a floating seat, bar-end mirrors, chopped fenders, and stubby exhaust mufflers. The rear subframe-and-suspension setup is also different, compared to the smaller Jawa bikes. The Perak also gets ABS-equipped disc brakes at either end.
Additionally, the Perak is Jawa India's first, BS6-complaint motorcycle, powered by a 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine which develops 30hp and 31Nm of torque. These figures are higher than the 27hp/28Nm produced by the Jawa and Forty Two's motor.
