October 31, 2018
These pictures you are looking at should be the first ever images of the upcoming Jawa 300 motorcycle coming from the house of Mahindra. A motorcycle that should mark the re-birth of an Iconic brand in India, this new Jawa 300 is among the most awaited new motorcycles in the country right now. Recently, Mahindra unveiled a new 293cc single cylinder engine with twin exhausts poking out of it which will be powering this new Jawa 300 for India. Reports suggest that Mahindra is unveiling the final production ready form of the Jawa 300 this coming November 15.
The released engine details of the upcoming Jawa 300 stands at 27bhp pf maximum power combined by a peak torque rating of commendable 28Nm. This new unit is liquid cooled and feature dual overhead camshafts. It is to be noted that this engine is BS VI emission norms compliant. Source have said that this Jawa 300 will have an exhaust note that will be an ode to the old school Jawa’s we all loved. Expected to be priced around INR 1.60 Lakhs to 1.90 Lakhs, this new age Jawa promises to be a modern take of the iconic bikes with its feet firmly set into the classics aura.
As you can see in the pictures here, just like the engine design, that offers a proper homage to the old legendary powerplants that featured on Jawa models, the whole design of the new Jawa 300 harks back to the simpler times as well. The old school front suspension complimenting the large mudguard at the front. The big wire spoke wheels and large round headlamp that is mounted inside the classic looking big round assembly that is round and bulky. Then there is the flat low seat that promptly suggests the old world charm of the original Jawa’s. Sweet.
When it arrives, the Jawa 300 will go head to head with the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350, Royal Enfield Bullet 350, Royal Enfield Classic 500 and The Royal Enfield Bullet 500 specifically. That said, this price point will also see it competing with the likes of more modern looking a better speced motorcycles like the likes of the Bajaj Dominar and its older cousin from Mahindra stable, the Mojo.
