Jawa exports from India are expected to commence soon. European markets are likely to get them this year…
Jawa Motorcycles is planning to expand to the European markets and the timeline is within this year. According to a media report, Classic Legends, the subsidiary of Mahindra which owns the Jawa brand, will sell all the three motorcycles – Jawa, Forty Two as well as the Perak bobber which is the newest addition to the lineup.
Jawa updated its lineup to Bharat Stage 6 very recently and the motorcycles are ready for the new regime. You can check out their prices one significant strategy change here.
Jawa will rival Royal Enfield in Europe, apart from Triumph specially with the Perak which carries a bigger 334cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, DOHC engine and produces 30 bhp of peak power and 31 Nm of max torque. It has been priced at around 1.95 Lakh in INR which translates to around 2300 Euros. The other variants cost under 2000 Euros after conversion. However, they will cost a lot more when they go on sale there.
For reference, rival Royal Enfields start at around £4100 for the entry Bullet 500s.
These are good signs and the possibility that Jawa may have overcome its biggest hurdle so far – production issues. This also gives hope of reduction of the waiting period in India which have even reached 10 months for some customers in the past!
