    Default Jawa's resurrection, Launch probable this year - Mr. Anand Mahindra, Chairmain Mahindra Group

    It won’t be that long when we get to see a modern Jawa running on the streets of our country. Recently, Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra Group gave a confirmation on twitter regarding the arrival of Jawa in India. We still don’t have a particular date or month when the new Jawa will hit our shores. It is expected to arrive either by the end of 2018 or during the festive season.

    Recently, Anand Mahindra replied to a twitter follower’s enquiry regarding the launch of Jawa in India. The reply read “Happening this year.”

    In 2016, Mahindra confirmed that they will bring Jawa in the country again in 2018. Though we don’t know the details of the motorcycle which will be brought to our shores, but going by the legacy of Jawa, the new motorcycle will probably be a classic or a modern-retro. It will exist in the same segment as of Royal Enfield.



    The Jawa-Mahindra linkage

    Jawa motorcycles is a Czech motorcycle brand which is currently owned by Mahindra’s subsidiary brand namely Classic legends. Classic legends became a subsidiary of Mahindra in 2016 to sell motorcycles in the domestic market and globally as well. Mahindra is looking forward to revive this classic brand in India knowing that it will have a lot of takers just for the legacy it brings on the table. Mahindra’s initial stint with the two wheeler market didn’t prove to be that fruitful. Now it’d be interesting to see where this “classic” path will lead Mahindra for now they have Java on board.

    We had covered of these beauties during our 0-100 Motorcycles campaign in 2016. The bike we shot was a 1954 model. You can read more about it here

    The modern Jawa

    Jawa developed a cult following in India before it got discontinued. But recently, it was revived, not in our country though. Back in May 2017, a new motorcycle was launched from Jawa’s stable in Czech Republic namely Jawa 350 OHC 4-Stroke. This particular motorcycle displaces 350 cc and is air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 26 bhp at 5250 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4750 rpm, while paired to a 4-speed gearbox. We are yet to get a confirmation whether the same model will make it to India or Mahindra will tweak it according to them.

    Classic legends is a company Incorporated in 2015 with address in Mumbai. Jawa 350 OHC is a 4 stroke single with 5 speed transmission, imported to UK, which is a Chinese motorcycle called Shineray 400. There is also a 2 stroke twin with 4 speed transmission, but I think it cannot come to India.

    Classic Legends design team comprises of ex Bajaj designers. It is situated in Kinetic Motors' place in Pune. They will be using Mahindra two wheelers' existing technology. Most probably they will use Mojo parts.

    It is a very bold move for JAWA to compete with the Royal Enfields.The problem with that Market is that people who are present there don't look for alternative choices as much.They just want the New Bullet because they loved the Old Bullet.Also most RE Buyers these days are youngsters and not the oldies,So they might not even know that there was a company named JAWA that existed.

    Anyways,I wish all success to them.I for one,am happy to see JAWA will be coming back.I want to see a Single Cylinder 250-300cc (Maybe they will just use the Mojo Engine) Engine mated to a 6 Speed Gearbox,with Dual Port Chrome Exhausts coming on both the right side and left side of the bike.Classic Vintage design.

    If possible,Bring back the Lift-for-kicker and push-back-for-gear like the old JAWA and YEZDI.

    It should not be surprising to see if India witnesses the resurgence of Retro classics of the of 80s and 90s. Modern design and technology have their own place and 'that' feeling has it's own. All the best to Jawa.


    P.S. - Wishing something similar for a RD350!

    I am sure that upcoming Jawa will be offering better Engine then current 350cc RE range. Mahindra should offer something special with Jawa so that people going for classic 350 & 500 should give a thought to Jawa.
