Jawa Perak was displayed at the launch of Jawa one year ago.
It was supposed to be launched in the first quarter of 2019.
Has finally been launched at Rs 1.94 lakh ex-showroom.
Bookings will open on 1 January 2020.
Deliveries will begin on 1 April 2020.
Jawa has launched the Perak at a price of Rs 1,94,500, ex-showroom. The Jawa follows the body style of a factory bobber and is based on a different engine from the Jawa Standard and Jawa Forty Two.
The Perak uses a liquid-cooled 334 cc engine that generates 30 bhp and 31 Nm and puts that through a six-speed gearbox. The engine is BS Vl compliant from day 1. It is a single-seater with extremely period styling – the rear shock is hidden under the seat to make it appear like it is a hardtail.
It sports disc brakes both front and rear and is equipped with dual-channel ABS. Spoke rims complete the retro look. The ‘stealth’ paint scheme means it gets dark matte paint and no chrome bits.
Jawa has 110 dealerships in 83 cities and is going to expand its network slowly because it is focusing on quality and parts supply at the current dealerships before opening more showrooms.
With the Perak, all dealers will have one available for a test ride by December but only those cities with access to BS Vl fuel will be selling it initially. Bookings will open on 1 Jan 2020, and deliveries will begin in those cities with BS Vl fuel from April 1 onward.
The Jawa Perak will compete with other neo-retro-styled cruisers priced similarly, including the segment leader Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Classic 500, and the recently launched Benelli Imperiale 400.
