The iconic Jawa brand is confirmed to make a comeback to the Indian market thanks to Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd.
Jawa has introduced the four-stroke variant of the Jawa 350. The bike is now Euro4 compliant and the company intends to sell it in Central America, Russia and UK.
The Czech motorcycle maker used to be a household name for Indian motorcycle enthusiasts in the bygone years. However, the advent of cheaper Japanese alternatives and changing emission norms turned the tides against the company. Jawa Moto, however, continued to manufacture the two-stroke wonders, albeit in a smaller number.
Powering the 2017 Jawa 350 OHC is a 397 cc air-cooled capable of producing 27.73 PS of maximum power at 6,500 rpm and 30.6 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm, and is paired to a five-speed gearbox. It has a top speed of 130 km/h.
The Jawa 350 OHC gets a 12-litre fuel tank, has a 160 kg dry weight and offers an electric start. It is also the first Jawa motorcycle to get ABS. The front brake is a 280 mm disc while the rear is a 160 mm drum unit.
Jawa Moto has announced that the Jawa 350 OHC has been priced at CZK 99,930 in Czech Republic.
