Finally, Jawa has been introduced in India. Here it is in full glory with the retro looks and clear memories. It does not debut as the old two-stroke bike with the distinctive exhaust. However, it looks like the old Jawa with some modern touches and a new engine. The exhaust sound is distinctive but not much different from the old one. Total 3 motorcycles have been launched, which include – Jawa, Jawa 42 and Jawa Perak. Type 42 is a modern version of new Jawa and Perak is a factory-custom Bobber motorcycle.
