    Default 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?
