Sharing styling cues from the iconic Jawa 250 Type A, the upcoming Jawa Classic 300 Roadster will make its debut on November 15, 2018
We informed you earlier that Mahindra will re-introduce the iconic Jawa nameplate in India on November 15, 2018. Mahindra’s subsidiary, Classic Legends will showcase the new Jawa Classic 300 motorcycle in 3 different variants. The Classic Roadster will first go on sale to challenge the Royal Enfield Classic 350. Ahead of its debut, the production-ready Jawa 300 Classic leaked from its promotional shoot.
Going by the spy image, it is visible that the Classic 300 retains the old-school look. The new Jawa shares many design cues from the older bike, specifically from Jawa 250 Type A (original name Type 353/04) which was the first Jawa in India. It features retro-styled round headlights, dual-tone chrome finish on the muscular fuel tank, flat seat, telescopic forks, twin exhaust system and the flared mudguards with pinstrips.
Moreover, the spotted model was wrapped in Jawa’s original maroon shade. Though, design of the tail-light and the positioning of the ignition switch have been changed. Overall the bike’s profile is similar to the original old-school Jawas, which should appeal to customers looking for a retro-styled motorcycle. Also See – Jawa 300cc Motorcycle – 5 Things To Know
It is powered by a 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that sports dual overhead camshafts. This engine is capable of producing 27bhp of power and 28Nm of torque. Power will be transmitted to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox. This will be all-new engine, which will be BSVI ready as well.
For suspension duties, the Jawa 300 Classic gets telescopic front forks and twin shock absorbers at the back with a gas-charged canister at the bottom. For braking duties, the bike gets front disc brake and rear drum brake. Additionally, the Classic will have single-channel ABS as standard. The new Jawa 300 Classic will directly rival the segment-leader – Royal Enfield Classic 350.
