Latest Perak deliveries update is that you will have to wait more and this time there is nothing that the company can do…
It seems the world is preventing Jawa Perak from reaching local dealerships. The motorcycle was first unveiled in November 2018 with a launch promise of ‘soon’. However, 2019 came and went but the motorcycle is not on the floors yet. In November 2019, Jawa launched the Perak once again, promising its deliveries from April 2020 onwards – yes, it bought more time! Meanwhile, it opened bookings of the motorcycle.
But according to the latest update from the company, Jawa will not deliver Perak and its production has been impacted by the disruption caused by Coronavirus. Coronavirus has turned into a pandemic and as a precautionary measure, Governments are enforcing lockdowns and curfews in many cities of India. Almost every two-wheeler manufacturer has announced a temporary production shut-down including Suzuki, Yamaha, Hero and others.
Mahindra owned Jawa has also stopped production at its Pitampur factory due to COVID-19. As a result, it will not be able to commence deliveries of Perak from 02 April onwards. This will also impact deliveries of Bharat Stage 6 compliant Jawa Classic as well as the Forty Two which the company has already launched.
However, Classic Legends, the owner of the Jawa brand, intends to increase production to 10,000 units every month once things settle down in India as well as China (the company imports few parts from China as well). Till the pandemic gets under control, nothing can be predicted about when the production will commence at these factories.
