Jawa Motorcycles will be making its way to the European market later this year. Jawa Motorcycles will officially be made available in Europe. The three models listed for sale in Europe are the Classic, Forty Two and Perak.
The brand’s debut in Europe also marks a golden opportunity for Jawa to increase sales numbers and popularity at the same time. The Jawa brand is no stranger to us Indians. It is a historic motorcycling brand that introduced the world of leisure, passion-filled biking decades ago.
It even set the motorsport world on fire when it dominated the classes it participated in. Now, after a recent resurrection in India, the brand is set to enter the European market. Jawa Motorcycles relaunched in India with the showcase of the Classic, Forty Two and the Perak.
The Classic and Forty Two were launched shortly after, but Perak fans had to wait for a while. Underneath, both motorcycles are the same, but they have aesthetic differences.
The Classic is a modern-day version of the old Jawa 250 two-stroke motorcycle. It comes with a similar paint-job, lots of chrome, pin-stripes, etc. It features a single speedometer built into the headlamp case, just like the Jawas of yore.
The Forty Two on the other hand sports a more contemporary, neo-retro style. It comes with funkier colours and an off-set, independent speedometer. This motorcycle was targeted at younger buyers who didn’t have the sentimental value to want the old design.
The Jawa Perak was launched much later and is a custom-bobber-style motorcycle. It comes with a single seat and unique styling. The Jawa Classic and Forty Two are powered by the same engine. It is a liquid-cooled, 293cc, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 27bhp and a peak torque output of 28Nm.
The Jawa Perak on the other hand is powered by a larger 334cc, liquid-cooled engine that produces a maximum power output of 30bhp and a peak torque output of 30Nm. All three motorcycles will be made available in the European market later this year.
Unlike it did in India though, Jawa will not go all out and open lots of dealerships which would then result in a lot of bookings, which the brand cannot cater to. Jawa will slowly and steadily enter the European market while trying to meet demand. We sure hope the various quality issues earlier reported with the motorcycles have all been solved.
