JAWA 300 Styling & Comfort
The Jawa 300 comes with a retro-modern-exquisite design and it looks identical to the original offering of the 1970s. The motorcycle features rounded headlights, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank (with the ‘Jawa’ badging on either side), integrated single-pod instrument cluster, twin exhaust pipes and a small tail lamp – all these add to the character of the motorcycle. Also, the motorcycle is underpinned by a double cradle chassis.
