Mahindra-owned Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd. the brand which reincarnated the retro-classic JAWA motorcycles, has announced that the company has delivered around 2000 units of the single-seater bobber, Jawa Perak in the Indian market, starting the 2020 festive season on a positive note. The brand’s sales performance is also boosted by the Jawa classic and the Jawa Forty Two which have been upgraded to BS6 standards before the new stringent emission norms were enforced.
The Perak claims to be India’s first factory custom motorcycle with a single-seater styling. The Perak was showcased in November 2018 for the first time and the bobber-style motorcycle was launched in the Indian market in November 2019. With the Perak, the Jawa marque created a new segment in the Indian market. The segment was predominantly a speciality of custom motorcycle builders who modified motorcycles from international manufacturers making them impervious to a large population of aficionados in India due to its high cost of acquisition and ownership.
Classic Legends brought the bobber culture by pioneering the ‘Factory Custom’ trend in the Indian market making the motorcycle available as a custom product right from the assembly line. During the COVID induced nationwide lockdown Jawa engineers were busy fine-tuning the engine and in the process the product team was able to squeeze 2 Nm more out of the block. Powering the Perak a BS6 compliant 334cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, electronically fuel-injected DOHC engine with cross port technology that produces 30.64 Bhp of power and 32.74 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed constant mesh gearbox.
The brand started delivering the Perak in the month of July post lockdown relaxation across the country. The brand has also ramped up the production of the Perak to deliver the motorcycle in a timely order and to cope up with the demand. The company is currently running on a ‘Zero Inventory’ model and with the increase in the production of bobber the brand will be delivering more motorcycles in the coming months.
