Classic Legends Pvt Ltd will unveil a range of new-age Jawa motorcycles on 15 November at an event in Mumbai. While official details of the models are scarce at the moment, a teaser released by the company shows scrambler, classic, café racer and bobber models. Based on this image, IAB’s illustrator Shoeb Kalania has rendered the Jawa 300 Scrambler.
The Jawa 300 Scrambler is a tall motorcycle with an upright stance. Highlights include upside-down front forks, knobby tires, and a high-set front mudguard. Other than this, the bike should offer a tall handlebar, large disc brakes on spoke wheels, a high-set exhaust end-can, rubberised knee recess on the fuel tank, and a leather-wrapped flat seat.
Reportedly, the Jawa 300 Scrambler is one of the three Jawa motorcycles that will be unveiled later this month. The first of the new models is the 300 Classic that was recently spied for the first time in India. Powering the new Jawa motorcycles is an all-new 293 cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine that benefits from fuel injection. The single-pot motor produces a maximum power of 27 bhp and a peak torque 0f 28 Nm. It comes mated to a six-speed transmission, and is compliant with the BSVI emission norms.
The motorcycle should feature at least a single-channel ABS as standard, to meet new legislation that mandates ABS on all two-wheelers featuring an engine displacing over 125cc. Furthermore, both front and rear suspension are likely to offer long travel helping the new motorcycle comfortably tread off the beaten tarmac.
The Jawa 300 Scrambler is expected to launch with a sub-INR 2 lakh price tag and become a direct rival to the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
