5 Reasons to Buy the All-New 300cc Jawa Motorcycle

Jawa made an impressive comeback by launching three models in the country. The decent price gap and unique styling of all three brought a smile on the face of hundreds of Jawa fans, with none other than Jawa 300 Classic getting almost similar design to the favorite Indian retro machine. Along with Forty-Two (42), 300 Classic can be bought in 2018 while Jawa Perak will enter the country in 2019. Here are five solid reasons to consider a Jawa motorcycle in India.

1) Unmatched Charm

The revival of a niche brand after almost two decades definitely brings unmatched charm for the upcoming owners. These bikes ruled the industry for almost four decades, with buyers still having examples that are running perfectly well. The design, unlike most commuters who share design lines with each other these days, is totally unique with raised headlight, unique casing, and mouthwatering shades. Those looking for retro-modern design will find nothing better than these bikes.

2) Promising Power

Jawa 300 and Forty-Two use the highly tested 293cc, single cylinder engine, producing 27 BHP of peak power and 28 Nm of torque. The engine is liquid-cooled and fuel-injected. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. On the other hand, those who feel they need more power, they can spend additional INR 25,000 on the Jawa Perak. They will get 30 BHP of power and 31 Nm of torque from the 334cc engine planted in the Perak.

3) Lucrative Pricing

The starting price of INR 1.55 lakh for the Jawa 42 can help buyers fulfill their dream of owning a premium motorcycle with extended capabilities in a tight budget. Bikes with 300cc engines are priced unevenly in India, with Apache RR 310 claiming INR 2.23 lakh and BMW G310R getting INR 2.99 lakh price tag. Even the Jawa 300 is priced well at INR 1.64 lakh. Here is a complete price list for all Jawa variants launched in India by the iconic brand.

4) Attractive Shade Options

Jawa 300 is available in Maroon, Black and Grey shade, with all three of them getting more chrome on the fuel tank than a regular chrome edition motorcycle you can buy in India. Jawa 42 claims a different league of buyers as they offer bright shades like Red, Blue, Green, and Lime. The third version named Perak comes with more aggression than any of the above-listed shade.

5) Factory Custom Version

Jawa Perak is the highest level of performance from the brand at present, offering 30 HP on a bobber based body. The use of a rear disc brake, dual channel ABS, custom swingarm and hanging seat design makes Perak the most valuable machine of its kind. The 334cc engine costs just INR 25,000 over the standard variant of the Jawa motorcycle.
