Jawa Perak gets a BS6 compliant engine which explains the price hike
Classic Legends, the owner of Jawa brand in India, has launched the final motorcycles which were showcased exactly a year ago on 15th November 2018. Jawa Perak has been launched with a price tag of Rs 1.94lakh ex-showroom. A hike of about Rs 5000 is due to the BS6 compliant engine on the Perak bobber.
Jawa Perak is a single-seat bobber which takes name and design inspiration from Jawa’s original Perak bobber launched in 1946 in Paris Motor Show. The front end of the bike is similar to the Jawa 300 but noticeable changes are towards the rear of the bike. The Perak gets a new swingarm which holds triangular toolbox on both sides. Also, the swingarm is longer, hence the wheelbase.
Powering the Jawa Perak bobber is a liquid-cooled, 334cc single-cylinder engine with a 4-valve head and fuel injection. This engine is a bored-out version of the 293cc engine seen on the Jawa 300 and Jawa 42. The motor develops 30bhp and 31Nm torque and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. We expect Perak to outperform both the other Jawa bikes on sale in India.
As of now, there is no option for a rear seat on the Perak bobber. The rear suspension, which is a monoshock, is located under the floating single seat. front suspension is same telescopic forks lifted from the other Jawa bikes. Bar-end mirrors are standard on the Perak along with a smaller front fender. Braking duties are performed by dual disc brakes with dual-channel ABS as standard.
For a perfect look, the Perak comes fitted with spoked rims instead of alloy wheels. But the downturn is that tyres are not tubeless because rims are not sealed units. Jawa Perak features 50:50 weight distribution.
Jawa Perak has opened a niche segment in India as we cannot compare this single-seat bobber with any other motorcycle in the Indian market. Bookings on the first small capacity bobber in India will begin from January 2020 and the deliveries will commence rather late in April 2020.
