Classic Legends claims that it has crossed the landmark sales figure of 50,000 units of Jawa motorcycles in an effective 12 months of full operations.
Jawa, Jawa Forty Two, Perak sales cross 50,000 mark
Classic Legends say milestone was achieved in effectively 12 months
We say claimed because the company has not shared its sales data with SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) since April 2019.
Since the moniker was revived in November 2018, Jawa has been struggling to keep up with demand. The company says the 50,000-motorcycle sales milestone signifies an extremely healthy uptake in demand for Jawa motorcycles in the country, as it continues to expand both its production capacity as well as dealership footprint to cater to the steady rise in demand.
Ashish Singh Joshi, CEO, Classic Legends said, “As the newest entrant in the Indian motorcycle market, we are proud of what we have achieved in such a short duration. As a relatively recent start-up, Classic Legends has readied a full-scale production facility to support the three models that we introduced as a part of the resurrection of the Jawa brand, set up an unparalleled and widespread sales network; and have ramped up all our operations constantly to meet customer demands.”
“Crossing the milestone of 50,000 motorcycles in a span of an effective 12 months of full operations is of utmost significance for us. This is not just a number but an important marking on our odometer, which points us towards the countless miles we have set out to cover as we keep shifting into higher gears. Considering the very healthy demand that we are seeing and the fact that the current 50,000 took longer due to COVID-related production challenges, I am confident that the next 50,000 will come in far less time,” added Joshi.
The manufacturer says the Jawa brand is getting demand from other markets, for which Classic Legends has also started exports, with a batch of Jawa motorcycles being shipped to Europe and Nepal. At present, Jawa Motorcycles has three offerings in its portfolio – the Jawa, Jawa Forty Two and Perak.
