Has Jawa bitten more than it can chew? After all, just look at the long waiting period of its two models – standard Jawa and Jawa Forty Two. Both the single-channel and dual-channel ABS versions of the two motorcycles have a waiting period ranging from 6 to 11 months across major cities.

Jawa Forty Two Dual Channel Abs Delivery In Pune
The Jawa Forty Two has a price tag of INR 1.55 lakh* for the single-channel version and INR 1.64 lakh* for the dual-channel version.

Mahindra two-wheelers announced the revival of Jawa branded motorcycles in 2016 via the subsidiary Classic Legends. Unveiled last year, Jawa picked up a fight against Royal Enfield by unveiling three new models. Within a month the company had to pull down the order books by announcing that they were sold out till September 2019. All that without a single bike being manufactured or ridden by critics or customers.

Jawa has over 100 dealerships across India. You can still book your new bike at any of these but do not expect to see yourself riding a new motorcycle this festive season. In fact, if you are in Pune, you will have to wait till August next year for the delivery!

Mahindra also plans to re-introduce the Yezdi brand. A new social media page dedicated to the Yezdi brand came up in August 2019 announcing official Yezdi branded merchandise. Will Yezdi also meet a similar fate? And what about BSA? Mahindra also owns the brand rights to BSA, the iconic British motorcycle brand. It wanted to revive this brand to include new premium motorcycles for the global market.

A bobber-styled Jawa Perak was announced with a bigger, more powerful engine but there has been no confirmation on the launch apart from a mention of end-2019.

The standard Jawa is priced at INR 1.64 lakh*, while the Jawa Forty Two will set you back by INR 1.55 lakh*. Classic Legends also unveiled the Jawa Perak which was set to be launched by December 2019. However, there have been further comments from Jawa on the Perak.
