Jawa Perak Launched in India at Rs 1.95 Lakh, Meets BS-VI Norms
The Jawa Perak is a single-seat motorcycle that has a classic bobber design.
Jawa has launched the Perak in India for Rs 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom) which finally completes the lineup of motorcycles that the company had showcased last year. The Jawa Perak was initially announced at Rs 1.89 lakh, but now as the bike meets BS-VI norms and the engine has been upgraded, the price has gone up by Rs 6,000 per unit.
The company has announced that the booking for the Perak will start on 1 January, but deliveries for the same will start by April next year.
Considering Jawa hasn’t been able to complete the deliveries to buyers who purchased the Forty Two and the Jawa 300 many months ago, there are still doubts about whether it will be able to meet delivery dates for the Perak as well. Some customers have had to wait for more than six months for their bikes.
The Jawa Perak sports a different design from its sister bikes, the Forty Two and the 300. It comes with a low stance and an overall bobber style looks. It’s a single-seater and also sports a different toolbox design. Also, the company has ditched the chrome cladding design philosophy and gone for a matte paint approach with the Perak.
In terms of performance, the Jawa Perak is powered by a BS6-compliant 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine capable of pumping 30bhp of max power and 31Nm of peak torque. This is slightly larger than its two siblings.
It’s more powerful than the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two which make 27bhp and 28Nm of torque. According to Mahindra, the new engine has been developed from scratch to make it BS-VI compliant.
It gets a telescopic front fork and dual shock absorbers at the back with a gas-charged canister at the bottom. Braking responsibilities are being taken care of by a single disc brake at the front and a disc at the back.
In this price segment, the Jawa Perak comes in direct competition with the Benelli Imperiale 400 and even the Royal Enfield Classic 350.
