The Jawa Classic 300 is powered by a 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 27bhp of power and 28Nm of torque
The iconic Jawa nameplate will officially make a comeback into India tomorrow. Mahindra’s subsidiary, Classic Legends will introduce the new 300cc Classic Roadster. Not just the Classic, the company will also unveil 3 different variants of this 300cc motorcycle. The motorcycle will directly rival the Royal Enfield Classic 350.
Going by the teasers and spy images, it is visible that the Classic 300 retains the old-school look. The new motorcycle shares styling cues from the older Jawa 250 Type A, which was also the first Jawa in India. Some of the design highlights include retro-styled round headlights, dual-tone chrome finished muscular fuel tank, flat seat, twin exhaust system and the flared mudguards with pinstrips. Overall the bike’s profile is similar to the original old-school Jawas, which should appeal to customers looking for a retro-styled motorcycle.
Powering the new motorcycle is a 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that sports dual-overhead caamshafts and fuel-injection system. Paired to a 6-speed gearbox, this all-new engine churns out 27bhp of power and 28Nm of torque. The company claims that the exhaust note is designed to mimic the exhaust note of the original two-stroke Jawas and Yezdis. Engineers have done really well to come this close to the original Jawas exhaust note with the new 4-stroke engine. The exhaust sound also adds to the retro-appeal of the motorcycle.
Suspension system of the bike comprises of telescopic forks and twin shock absorbers at the front and rear respectively. For braking duties, the bike gets front disc brake and rear drum brake. Additionally, the Classic will have single-channel ABS as standard.
