Ahead of the upcoming launch on 15th November, Jawa 300 has been spotted testing for the first time. The new model looks very similar to the original Jawa.
Here is the first spy picture of the much awaited Jawa Motorcycle! It is under heavy camouflage but we can spot bits of its styling highlights. We can say Mahindra and Classic Legends have done a fantastic job of making it look very similar to the original one. It looks like the old Jawa with a modern touch. The production of original Jawa was stopped back in 1996, due to the stricter emission norms. Now, after 22 years, it makes a comeback in India. The bike will compete with the likes of Royal Enfield Classic 350.
Talking about the design bits, it retains many of the original Jawa design cues. In the front, it gets a round shaped headlamp and round rear view mirrors as well. The flat single seat, beefy fuel tank and the battery housing beside the rear suspension add up to the retro look.

Other design highlights that remind us of the original Jawa include the dual chrome exhaust mufflers, spoke alloy wheels, round turn indicators and the conventional telescopic forks. It might also get an analogue instrument cluster to add up to the look.
We all know about the engine specifications and how the engine looks. The Jawa 300 gets a 293cc liquid cooled engine that puts out 27 BHP and 28 Nm of peak torque. The engine pairs up with a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is made completely new and is not a reworked or retuned version of Mahindra Mojo’s 300cc engine.
For suspension, it seems to use the conventional telescopic forks in the front and gas-charged dual shock absorbers at the rear with chrome dipped gas canisters. The Jawa 300 gets a front disc brake and a rear drum brake. So, it will get a single-channel ABS setup only.
We cannot wait to see the bike without any camouflage. Based on what we can see, the Jawa 300 will carry the retro classic looks. As per our sources, 2 more bikes from Jawa Motorcycles will be launching in India. Our source tells that the other two bikes will be ranging between 250-400cc. We speculate that one of the upcoming bikes would come under the Yezdi moniker.
As for the prices, we expect it to be around Rs 1.3 Lakhs. The Jawa 300 goes against Royal Enfield Classic 350 which starts off at Rs 1.48 Lakhs. With the ABS feature coming in Classic 350, the prices will shoot up. Now, all we can do is wait for the big unveiling and launch on 15th November.
