Classic Legends launched the Jawa and the Jawa Forty-Two in India and unveiled the Jawa Perak factory-custom bobber on November 14. The company has now released the TVC on its YouTube channel.
Classic Legends has successfully taken the Jawa legacy ahead by maintaining the authentic classic design. The Jawa, priced at INR 1.64 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), is a tribute to the original bike. On the other hand, the Jawa Forty-Two is the modern-retro version of the classic, priced at INR 1.55 lakh (ex-showroom).
Both the bikes will compete with the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Thunderbird 350.

Suspension setup comprises twin gas-canister shocks at the back and a telescopic unit at the front. Both the bikes have a kerb weight of 170 kg and a carry a 14-litre fuel tank.
