Mahindra has finally revealed the new Jawa engine details. This shows that the launch of the retro legend may just be around the corner.
The new engine block design is based on the original Jawa engine. Mahindra has perfected the minute details too. The engine despite being liquid cooled. The rest of the engine is also very neat and screams retro.
The new Jawa motorcycles will run on a 293cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, DOHC engine. This motor produces 27bhp power and 28Nm torque. The engine is completely modern despite how it looks. It features dual overhead camshafts and is also BS6 compliant. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox.
The new Jawa engine is tuned for an ample amount of mid-range power and a flat torque curve. According to Mahindra, this engine is designed from scratch and is not based on Mahindra Mojo. In comparison, the Mojo runs on a 295cc motor and produces 27hp and 30Nm torque.
Mahindra also wants the new Jawa to sound like the older 2 stroke engines. A team of sound engineers in Italy worked extensively through countless cycles of harmonic pipe combinations and multiple other permutations to discover a sound that was worthy of the new Jawa.
Speaking about their new Jawa engine – Mahindra says,
“The brief we took upon ourselves was always to build an engine that had the Jawa DNA. Classic, yet sporty. And it was clear, if anything, it had to be free revving. Working closely with one of the world’s leading engine specialist at the technical center in Varese, Italy, not only did we build an engine with a nearly flat torque curve and generous mid-range, but also a motor strong enough to last a lifetime. Piece by piece bringing together Classic and Sporty all in one!”
This new revelation has got all Jawa aficionados excited about the imminent re-launch of the classic retro legend in India. This motorcycle will rival the equally popular Royal Enfield Classic 350.
