Jawa Motorcycles to launch three new models until April 2021.
Perak Bobber is one of the models.
The second one could be a Scrambler.
The third model is unknown but could be a rival to Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.
Jawa has recently launched a special edition of the Standard called the 90th Anniversary Edition and it has revealed that it plans to launch three new models in the next eighteen months in the Indian market.
One of the three models is the Perak, the from-the-factory bobber that takes its design cues from the single-seat models from a long time ago. It has a different motor to the current models, however – the Perak is powered by a 334cc single that generates 30bhp and 31Nm. The price for the Perak was announced last year itself, as Rs 1.89 lakh, ex-showroom.
The second model could be a scrambler, judging from the sketches shown at the time of the launch of the brand. The sketch showed a motorcycle with a flat seat, long-travel suspension, a dirt-bike like high front mudguard, and an exhaust whose exit is just under the seat.
It is unclear at this point if the scrambler will be based on the Standard or the Perak. The former will allow it to be priced more competitively, which might make more sense – it will then become an alternative to the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
The third model is a mystery at the moment, but it is rumored that Jawa is working on a larger capacity, multi-cylinder motorcycle that will rival the 650cc products from Royal Enfield. There seems to be a market globally for that niche, and Jawa naturally wants a piece of the action.
However, Jawa currently is struggling to fulfill its current set of orders, with waiting periods for the Forty Two and Standard stretching from six to seven months from the date of booking. The models currently on sale rival the Royal Enfield Classic 350 range, and the UM Renegade range.
