The Jawa brand has been revived in India with three new models – the Jawa, the Jawa Forty Two and the Jawa Perak. The Jawa and Jawa Forty Two are powered by a smaller motor and will go on sale before the Perak (head here to know more). The Perak will go on sale at a later date and has been priced at Rs 1.89 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Perak looks very different from the other two models. Its got a low and long stance, and its bobber styling cues look impressive. The bike was showcased in a matte black colour scheme but we believe Jawa will offer a few more shade options as we get closer to the launch date. The bike also ditches all the chrome for matte black treatment. The Perak was showcased as a single-seater and features a different toolbox design. The bobber-like styling elements include a floating seat, bar-end mirrors, chopped fenders, and stubby exhaust mufflers.
The factory custom Jawa Perak is powered by a 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine which develops 30hp and 31Nm of torque. It uses a bigger bore with the same stroke. In comparison, the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two make 27hp and 28Nm of torque. The Perak also has a different subframe and suspension setup at the rear. The bike employs a monoshock and it features a disc brake at the rear, unlike the other two Jawa models. However, what remains to be seen is if it'll employ dual-channel ABS or a single-channel one.
