Mahindra’s subsidiary, Classic Legends will officially unveil the first Jawa motorcycle for India on November 15, 2018. The company will showcase 3 new retro-modern motorcycles. Side profile of the new motorcycle has already been leaked online. Ahead of its debut, the company has revealed a teaser video that reveals the exhaust note of the Jawa 300.
The video suggests that the Jawa Classic 300 gets an unique exhaust note, which is quite impressive. 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..
The exact design of the motorcycle is still under wrap, but the motorcycle will carry the original Jawa styling with modern technology. The new motorcycle will be powered by a new 283cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine with two functional exhaust exiting from either side of the powertrain. Featuring twin overhead camshaft with liquid cooling and fuel injection, the new 293cc engine is capable of producing 26bhp of power and 28Nm of torque.
