Based on the double-craddle chassis, the upcoming Jawa 300 Classic Roadster will challenge the popular Royal Enfield Classic 350
Mahindra’s subsidiary, Classic Legends, will re-launch the iconic Jawa Motorcycles nameplate in India on November 15. If media reports are to be believed, the company will launch 3 different variants of the motorcycle. However, nothing concrete on the same has been revealed. Classic Legends has already started testing the motorcycle, which has been spotted for the first time on the Indian roads. While the company hasn’t revealed about the upcoming bike’s design and segment, the spy images reveal that the new motorcycle will be a Royal Enfield Classic 350 challenger. Likely to be called Jawa Classic 300 Roadster, the motorcycle is expected to be launched in early 2019.
For India, the new Jawa 300 Classic has been designed and developed from scratch and will have no relation with the Jawa bikes sold internationally. The bike’s design is inspired from the older Jawas, but it comes with modern features and tech. It will be powered by a 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection technology, which will be paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
Jawa Classic 300 Launch Date
As mentioned above, the new retro-styled Classic Roadster will make its India debut on November 15, 2018. Though the launch date is yet to be revealed, we believe a possible launch in the Q1, 2019 can’t be ignored.
