Classic Legends has revealed to IAB that the company will commence deliveries of the Jawa and the Jawa Forty-Two in February.
The company states that it hasn’t shipped a single unit to customers and all the dealership models are test or media ride bikes. Speaking to IAB, Mr Anupam Thareja, Founder – Classic Legends Pvt Ltd., said:
There are no motorcycles that were shipped out. The bikes that are available at dealerships are test bikes and there have been no sales yet. Deliveries will begin from next month.
We reported on 24 December that the Jawa motorcycles are sold out till September 2019. The company has stopped taking online bookings; however, prospective customers can book the bikes at the Jawa dealerships across the country. Last week, Jawa Motorcycles inaugurated four new dealerships in Mumbai.
That said, potential customers should note that the Jawa Forty-Two and the Jawa classic command a waiting period of up to six months. Apart from the two, Classic Legends have also launched the Jawa Perak in India, priced at INR 1.89 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings and deliveries of the Perak will commence post-September 2019.
On 21 December, Jawa Motorcycles launched the dual-channel ABS variants of the Jawa Forty-Two and the Jawa. Powering both the motorcycles is a BS-6 ready 293cc, DOHC liquid-cooled motor that churns out 27 bhp of power and 28 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with a six-speed gearbox.
While the Jawa features a modern-retro design that is an evolution of the classic bike, the Jawa Forty-Two takes inspiration from the custom scene. The Forty-Two features bold paint schemes, chopped fenders and an off-centre speedometer. The Jawa classic rivals the Royal Enfield Classic 350, while the Jawa Forty-Two competes with the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X.
