The engine offers a generous mid-range and flat torque curve. Despite being 50cc lesser than Classic 350, it produces more power than the Classic. For transmission, it will use a 5-speed gearbox.
Jawa claims that it will try to make the bike look as original as before. It claims that engineers are trying to make its exhaust note sound as original as the yesteryear bike. The bike will retain the iconic round headlamps, single sea, dual exhaust muffler and its original charm.
There are no other details present nor there is any other information on the other bikes. But there are reports suggesting that one of the three motorcycles will come from the Yezdi brand.
