Jawa 300 is the reincarnation of the original Jawa of the 70s. Despite having some modern upgrades, it looks as retro as it can get. At a price of Rs 1.64 Lakhs, it is now available for online bookings, until the dealerships open up. 

Jawa makes a comeback with 2 new companions along. The legendary classic roadster which made it to many big rallies has made a comeback in India. Here is all you need to know about Jawa 300. new jawa 300

In its original avatar, it won many rallies and race events. It was a lightweight two-stroke big with a distinctive and loved exhaust note. However, with stricter emission norms kicking in, the motorcycle had to be stopped in India.

To assure all the people living with its memories, the new model looks very identical to the original model. The styling bits are the same with the proud ‘Jawa’ logo running over the bulbous fuel tank.

Yes, it gets a few upgrades like disc brakes, ABS, BS-6 engine and modern suspension. However, the layout and design work remains true to the gills.

Classic Legends has launched 2 more models, include Type 42 and Perak. Jawa 42 is a modern version of the original model with bits of modern touches. Perak draws inspiration from the original Perak 250, which was available in the 1960s. Perak was one of the first Jawa’s and like the current Perak, was a true Bobber.

The prices start off at Rs 1.55 Lakhs for Type 42, 1.64 Lakhs for Jawa and 1.89 Lakhs for the Bobber.

History

The Czech bike brand made it to our shores back in the 1960s when it was known as the Ideal Jawa. Back then, the bikes were manufactured in Mysore, Karnataka. It started off with original Jawa, which was in production for a decade. During that time, it started garnering its fan.

Later, in the early 70s, the names were changed to Yezdi, which created a landmark in Indian two-wheeler history. Yezdi came in many variants and different capacity engines.  After a successful stint for 20 years, the brand went out of production in India in 1996.

Till now, these bikes are preserved and not sold easily. If you luckily find one for sale, expect to shell above Rs 50,000 for buying it. If you find a restored one, it will go for Lakhs.

The styling cues include the wraparound headlamp cowl, lots and lots of chrome highlights, twin-pea shooter exhaust muffler, the toolkit box and single pod speedometer. Of course, the bulbous fuel tank with Jawa inscription is the main highlight which revives the old memories.

Other design cues include the chrome dipped rear mirrors, waterfall-type rear light and customizable fuel cap. Out of the three colours, the Maroon one makes it look like the original one.

  2. Well at least we see what Mahindra can show case in the Auto Expo. Yezdi / Java / Rajdhoot / Yahama 350 those were the power bikes in the 80 / 90. Their design and structure are coming back in fashion. may be worth the wait.

  3. Ya plus its from chinese ..no way .. N RE is still a british engineering so its made to last .. I will still go for RE ..anytime ..

  4. This is ok. But, old one is the best and good. Bike of ideal jawa and yezdi is the best in vintage classical look everyone knows the type of engine capacity and silencer roaring beats they is awosome.
    That type of bikes are moved in old two strokes categories of 250cc, 350cc very well.
