Jawa Motorcycles released a new video last week, which suggests that the company will unveil four bikes in India on November 15. With that said, a report from September claimed that Classic Legends could introduce three bikes in India.

Coming back to the leaked image, the Jawa 300 Classic features a black single-piece leather seat. Suspension duties are carried out by telescopic forks at the front and gas-charged twin shock absorbers at the rear. The bike runs on wire-spoke wheels that wrap on MRF Tyres. Anchorage comes from a front disc and a rear drum setup while a single-channel ABS is standard.

The first Jawa motorcycle will be powered by an all-new 293 cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection. The single-cylinder motor pumps out 27 bhp of maximum power and 28 Nm of peak torque, while it will be mated to a six-speed gearbox. The engine is BS-VI compliant and is tuned for a flat torque curve and strong mid-range.

The retro appeal of the Jawa 300 Classic is further enhanced by chrome detailing to the peripherals. The modern-retro styling of the Jawa 300 Classic and the torquey engine will help it to compete with its fiercest rival - the Royal Enfield Classic 350.
