Classic Legends, the subsidiary of Mahindra and Mahindra brought the Legendary motorcycle Jawa back to life last year. They also had a surprise up their sleeve, The Perak – a bobber styled motorcycle. Finally, after almost a year of waiting, Jawa will unveil the Motorcycle on November 15th. While there not many bobbers on sale in India, the Jawa Perak would steal the title of being the “Most Affordable” bobber in India.
Enter the Perak
The Perak name is borrowed from the original Jawa Perak, which was showcased at 1946 Paris Motor Show. While the original Perak was a 250cc offering, the new motorcycle Perak uses a larger 334cc engine. It is a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that develops about 30hp and 31 Nm of peak torque. This engine will come paired to a six-speed gearbox.
The interesting bits about the bobber are the visual changes and the mechanical updates that differentiate it from the other Jawa Siblings. The bike is built on a double cradle chassis with a longer swingarm that gives the Perak, its distinctive and longer dimension than its siblings. While a pair of telescopic forks do the duty at the front, the rear suspension is a mono-shock unit. The rear suspension is neatly tucked under the cantilevered single seat. Rear disc brake with a dual-channel ABS will be standard equipment.
The Bobber is sure to stand out from the crowd with its distinctive looks. The bike also has ditched all the chrome bits in a bid to look more rugged on the roads. While the Perak was only showcased in Matt black, we can expect Jawa to add in more shades to the bobber. The 334cc engine is also expected to be a BS6 compatible unit and hence we expect it to be priced at around INR 2 Lakh (Ex-Showroom).
