  • Jawa Motorcycle 300cc engine unveiled: The legend is really coming back!

    We are starting to feel like it’s the season of comebacks. Suzuki revived the legendary Katana and we knew that Mahindra and Mahindra group is also looking to revive some iconic brands under the Classic Legends brand. Recently it was revealed that they will also be bringing back Peugeot Motorcycles. They have already announced that Jawa is also going to make a comeback and the good news is that the Jawa Motorcycle 300cc engine has been unveiled. It has been developed in India and Italy and is set to offer more power than the Royal Enfields of the same class.







    This new engine has been built from scratch and shares its bore and stroke with the existing Mahindra Mojo 300cc mill. The engine will be BS6 ready and will focus on long-term reliability. It looks to bring back the sound and the charm of the original Jawa in a rather modern avatar. As we mentioned the engine is a 300cc unit and will make around 27 Bhp and 28 Nm of torque. It has also been ensured that it has a nice & flat powerband like the original Jawa.

    Classic Legends state that when they set out to build this engine, they wanted to keep it as close to the original as possible and if the pictures are as accurate as we assume, then they have more than succeeded. The parent company of Jawa Motorcycles, Mahindra-owned Classic legends, has announced that it will be powered by a 293 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor with dual overhead camshafts or DOHC technology. Power will be transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed gearbox.

    We can expect the bike's styling too, to look back to the original for inspiration. We expect that Jawa will launch this bike by the end of this year, and is likely to debut in three variants with a whole list of accessories to help customize your motorcycle.

    At the time of its launch, the new Jawa motorcycle will take on the Royal Enfield 350 range but will offer more power than the Bullet, Classic or Thunderbird 350. We bet Royal Enfield is watching developments at Jawa keenly since both brands will operate in pretty much similar space of retro and classic looking motorcycles. Jawa also enjoys the benefit of having a strong and old connect with Indian consumers, which should help it appeal to more buyers.

    Looking good but the rest depends on the chassis and engine reliability and ofcourse the exhaust note. Hope they don't make it look too retro.

      That's exactly what we needed, some competition for RE to make them get off their asses and do some R&D instead of lying idle and making fat profits from a stone age machine.

          I hope the bike will look as good as the engine. But being liquid cooled it will have to have a radiator, which can spoil the classic looks unless properly done.
          Anyhow let us wait and watch. I also think this will be a reworked engine of Mojo, because that engine also came from a Italian company that Mahindra had bought.

            Wow. Lovely detailing on that engine. The brand name itself should give them an equal footing against RE in terms of nostalgia and feel. The reliable and effortless engine should be the deal maker.

              Forgive me if I'm wrong brother, but the engine in the pictures above has fins, which are only present in the air cooled engines. A liquid cooled engine does not need those fins. Have they specified that it is a liquid cooled unit? I was under the impression that it will be air/oil cooled one (just by looking at the pictures of course).
              I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

                The fins have been incorporated to give it retro look.
                Underneath that, it is all the liquid cooling mechanism.
                Bonneville did the same thing with their engines - retro looks, modern machines.

                  The design element actually inherits the retro looks and that's about it. Regarding the liquid cooling part, look closely at the front shot of the engine, you can spot the plumbing for the water jacket.

                    We'd all love that. But then it'd be DI + EGR, would 2 strokes match BS6 norms?

                      Also note it's a single cylinder engine with 2 exhaust pipes.

                      All this was done to give it that iconic look.

                        The original post says it is liquid cooled. The fins are probably for aesthetics only.

                          However seeing Mahindra's track record, I half expect them to botch this up badly. Somehow they never manage to capture the popular imagination, no matter how good their product. I truly wish this become a swift kick up RE's behind, that they seem to sorely need in the Indian market. However bear in mind RE isn't doing too badly recently. The love of Gora people's money has done what no river of Indian consumer tears was able to do . Their latest launches that they also sell overseas seem to all be decent.

                          Mahindra has to the three fold challenge of building an excellent product, pricing it just right, and reaching people with their marketing if they want to be a serious contender in this space. While as an enthusiast I am firmly behind anyone bringing solid choices to the Indian motorcyclist, I will not hold my breath in anticipation of a segment shakeup.

                          All the best Mahindra and Jawa!

                            I agree, they have to do some work on their marketing skills, my cousin bro has Mojo and swears by its touring capabilities, he previously had RE which gave up on him during Leh touring.

                            But yes my point is, we badly need a retro look bike to shake up market share of RE to force them to do something with their offerings.

                              Spotted Testing






                              "With less than a month for the official unveil of the new Jawa motorcycle, images of the prototype undergoing testing have emerged online. Although the body panels have been heavily camouflaged, we can see that the new motorcycle has numerous retro-styling elements inspired by the original Jawa."
