    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.

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."

    Yes, on today's age especially for touring, tubeless tires are almost a must. Can't tubeless tires fitted on spoke rims ?

    Yeah! I wish it had spoke + tubeless tires like recently launched suzuki v storm 650. Aftermarket alloy can be fitted but i doubt about their quality.
