Jawa has a single cylinder, 4 stroke, liquid cooled, dohc engine and a 6 speed gear box. Jawa comes with disc breaks in front and rear with a support of ABS. It is available in 4 variants and 3 colours.
Jawa Latest Updates
Classic Legends recently updated the classic Jawa to comply with BS6 emissions. The single-channel ABS variant now costs Rs 1,73,164 while the dual-channel variant retails at Rs 1,82,106, a hike of Rs 8,864â¬ and Rs 9,928 respectively over its corresponding BS4 models. Aside from the tweaked engine, the bike remains unchanged.
Though Classic Legends haven’t revealed the BS6 bike’s specs, we believe it won’t differ from the current BS4 model. Expect the 293cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder mill to belt out 27PS of power and 28Nm of torque. The motor runs on a 6-speed transmission. In terms of hardware, the Jawa uses a double downtube frame with a conventional telescopic fork and dual shocks at the rear which get 5-step preload adjustability. Anchoring the bike is a single 280mm disc up front with ABS while the rear runs a conventional 153mm drum brake to keep costs in check. Its 18-inch front and 17-inch rear tyres come wrapped in 90/90-section and 120/80-section rear tyres. A low seat height of 765mm and a kerb weight of just 170kg should be a boon for short riders.
The Jawa is available in two variants: single-channel ABS and dual-channel ABS.
Thankfully, the iconic Jawa sticks to its retro roots. The design is reminiscent of the original bike, which to our eyes is quite appealing. It features a dome-shaped headlamp, which extends and forms a cover around the front fork. Other notable design features include vintage-style fenders, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank garnished in chrome and a rather small single-seat setup.
On the features front, the bike comes with liquid-cooling and an old-school instrument console reading out the fuel level and speed.

Editor's View of Jawa
Styling, nimble, plenty of power.
Gearing is too short, engine character doesn’t suit the bike, instrument console is hard to read, build quality.
Granted, Classic Legends have managed to retain the essence of the original Jawa, but the new and improved Jawa just doesn't feel as special as the original. Here's why. The bike's short-stroke, high-compression motor simply isn't meant for cruising. It revs hard and likes to be kept on the boil, attributes that are unlike any laidback cruiser. And that's what eats into the bike's charm. The Classic 350 and Imperiale 400, although slow, offer a comfortable and relaxed ride. Aspects you'd be looking at if you want to cross continents or simply cruise on the highway.

24 years ago i have driven old jawa for thousands of KM . It will thrill me every time i touch the handle bar & pump it to alive the engine. The exhaust thump & interval between the next thump cant say in words. Flick & Kick is a wonderful experience . I used to get mileage around 30 kmpl to 35 kmpl. Now to coming new jawa . I went test ride new jawa with imaginations & drove more than 210 km i got mileage of 18 kmpl. Engine is powerful till 110 km/hr then it straining to climb speed with vibrations & becomes too noisy .The exhaust sound is like hero splendor bike. There are lots welding visually seen around new jawa . They recreated visibly old jawa . Visually good bike. I didn"t get moved or ringed & impressed while riding.I never need a bike for visual pleasure.
Got my delivery in December, and writing this review after a little over 2000kms. My daily commute is less than 8kms roundtrip, so almost the entireity of the 2000kms have been on weekend rides. 1. This bike loves the highways, and seemed comfortable cruising between 90-100kmph for extended periods.2. Travelling solo, with luggage is fine, but grund clearance becomes a major issue with pillion. Have to be extra careful while banking hard or crossing the odd speed bump.3. Average mileage over 2k kms is 38.4kmpl. Pure steady highway rides have got me 39+ kmpl, and pure in-city traffic heavy commutes have got me 34.7kmpl.4. 2nd 3rd gears feel too short and frequent gear changes in city traffic can be a bother.
Not at all Happy.. Waste of Money.. Should not have wasted 2lacs for this.. You can not trust the Odometer and lights on speedometer. Engine Malfunction Light and Batter Malfunction Light turned on after 159km only and even if I left the bike in service center for 2 days they did servicing and said sensor was not working changed the battery the light turned on again after riding 50 more kms. Not at all happy selling within a month... Can not spend my time at service center anymore... Entire day is wasted and issue is not resolved. Silensor sound is like normal 40-50000 bike and so normal. Got fooled with much hyped promotion and wasted money waited for this Bike for 1 year and very very disappointed
I had the original Jawa 250cc two stroke engine and hence my experience is based on that original model. It had a thunderous sound at start up and could be termed as an inherently loud machine. The subsequent Yezdi"s were much better in the sound department. Here I mean more silent.I averaged about 25 kms to a liter but earlier the rates were very low. So it was feasible.Road holding was good and I could reach an indicated speed of 80 KMS on any open stretch quite effortlessly.My particular bike had good brakes in the front but the rear was not so good.
Build quality is very poor. Deliveries start in March 2019 for the ones with rear drum brake & Single ABS for those who booked online. In June 2019 they will introduce dual ABS & Disk brakes. Those who pay around around 1.95L onroad for Classic now are bakras. All the showroom inaugrated in bangalore are Ex-Mahindra showroom. Just wait for 6months collect rider reviews and then decide if its worth investing around 2L for this cheap replica.
Got my Jawa Classic on 8th March. It's a dual ABS. Loved the bike..cool classic looks with modern features, but I'm disappointed with the ECU sensor which keeps on glowing in spite of no engine problem. The said sensor glows after the bike had crossed the 200kms on the odometer.
Can't ride this bike for longer time it had a Head turning design
I took the delivery of Jawa Classic 300 on the 1st Week of February 2020. My daily commute will be less than 20 Kms, where i drove nearly 400 Kms till today in which i did come across that the motorcycle started indicating me Malfunction which i reached around 150 Kms for which i reported the issue with service guys. The service guys replied me as they will fix it in the 1st Service & till then you can drive the motorcycle. I did also come across an another issue as Oil Leakage from the Head Gasket, for which i did reported again with the service guys when the motorcycle reached around 350 Kms. I am feeling really disappointed by facing these issues within a short span and short distance travel. Overall i feel that i have wasted my harden money investing on Jawa rather investing on the other bikes within 1 Lakh.
