Written by Nizam Shaikh

Classic Legends, the company that revived the heritage motorcycling brand, Jawa, in the Indian market has announced that it has kick-started the festive season by the announcement of crossing the 50,000 sales landmark on the Jawa Motorcycles. The brand has achieved the remarkable sales number in just 12 months of operation, despite facing challenges due to the COVID-induced nationwide lockdown and the associated supply chain disruption. 

Recently, the brand also announced that it had delivered close to 2000 units of the Jawa Perak, single-seater factory bobber, in the Indian market. The total 50,000 sales mark also signifies that the brand has quite a healthy uptake for the Jawa motorcycles and the company also plans to expand its production output as well as the dealership network to cater to the rise in demand. 

Furthermore, the brand reveals that the surge in demand is not limited to the domestic market and Classic Legends has also started exporting the motorcycles to other countries such as our close neighbour, Nepal and the European continent, thus expanding the brand reach in the international market. 

The Jawa portfolio currently consists of the Jawa Classic, Jawa Forty-Two and the Perak factory custom bobber. According to the brand, all three products have contributed well to the sales and the company expects to bag more sales by the end of the year. The brand also upgraded the Jawa Classic/Forty-two and Perak powertrains to BS6 standards. 

The Jawa Classic and the Jawa Forty-Two are powered by a BS6 emission-compliant 293cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, DOHC motor with cross port technology that makes 27 Bhp of power and 28 Nm of torque matched to a constant-mesh 6-speed gearbox. The Jawa Perak is powered by a BS6 standard 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.
