Inaugurating the three new showrooms, Ashish Joshi, Chief Executive Officer, Classic Legends, said, "Bengaluru holds a special place in Jawa's Indian story by being home to the largest Jawa Community in India. Jawa fans in the city have kept the brand alive for all these years and I feel extremely privileged to inaugurate 3 new Jawa showrooms here today. Mysuru and the state of Karnataka are an integral part of the Jawa legacy and bringing Jawa back to this state is a milestone moment for us. The faith placed by Jawa customers, aficionados and our dealer partners are helping us create a vast dealership network which will offer an unparalleled customer experience with best-in-class sales and service offering for any classic motorcycle brand out there." Joshi further added, "To all our 100+ dealers, we say, that we stand strongly behind you. We will not leave any stone unturned in providing our customers with the best of the sales, service and spares ecosystem."
As for the bikes, both the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two are powered by the same 293cc, liquid cooled, single cylinder, DOHC engine that is tuned to offer 27 bhp, and develops 28 Nm of peak torque and comes paired with a six-speed transmission. While there are no exotic electronics, the Jawa Forty Two does get a single-channel ABS as a standard fitment. The engine has been designed and developed in India and Italy. Jawa will also be offering a factory custom motorcycle, christened Perak later in 2019, which will get a bigger 332 cc engine offering 30 bhp and 31 Nm of peak torque. The company will soon also introduce dual-channel ABS in the existing bikes.
