Classic Legends Pvt Ltd, which owns rights to market Jawa bikes in India and few other international markets, has confirmed that the Jawa 300 Scrambler is not coming to the domestic market anytime soon.
This month, Jawa Motorcycles released a teaser which gave us a glimpse of a potential Scrambler/Adventure tourer. However, the Jawa 300 Scrambler was not to be seen at the launch on 15 November. Speaking about the possibility of a Scrambler at the event, Mr Anupam Thareja, Founder - Classic Legends, said:
So, as of now, we are only focusing on these Jawa Motorcycles. We have enough on our plate. As of now, the focus is on these models. I think there’s a huge market for these. The challenge for us is to make sure each one has to go long.
While this might come as a dampener for enthusiasts, here's IAB's interpretation of the Royal Enfield Himalayan challenger. The digital rendering is in-line with the teaser released by the company with a raised front fender, a kidney-shaped fuel tank, flat seat and an upswept exhaust.
The Jawa 300 Scrambler will ride on wire-spoke wheels that will wrap on knobby off-road tyres. The motorcycle will feature long-travel inverted front forks and a mono-shock at the rear. Braking responsibilities will be shouldered by disc brakes at both the ends, with standard dual-channel ABS.
The Jawa 300 Scrambler and future Jawa variants can use either the Jawa Forty-Two sourced 293cc engine or the bigger 334cc motor. The former produces a maximum power of 27 bhp and 28 Nm, while the latter pumps out 30 bhp and 31 Nm. Both the engines will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
