Jawa has finally launched its third motorcycle, a factory custom motorcycle called the Jawa Perak. Here are the important details

 

Everyone’s been eagerly waiting to see the Jawa Perak in its production form. And the day has finally arrived. The iconic brand has taken the wraps off its factory custom bobber, which is priced at Rs 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). We’re sure you have plenty of questions on your mind, so to narrow it down, we’ve penned down five important points that will tell you everything there is to know about the Perak.

 

Looks the part:

Drool-worthy is one way to put it. The Perak, in typical bobber fashion, gets chopped front and rear fenders and a tweaked chassis in order to accommodate the new wide cage-type swingarm. Interestingly, it retains the slash-cut exhaust that was earlier seen on the pre-production model. And boy does it look good! Add the fuel tank with gold highlights as well as the blacked-out mechanicals and you have a bobber worth dying for. Really.

 

Gets a separate production line:

Now, you expect the addition of a new bike to hamper production once again, which means late deliveries. But that isn’t the case here. Jawa has played it safe this time around. It has allocated a different production line for the Perak in order to keep things flowing smoothly and meet production deadlines. 

 

More power at your disposal:

Unlike the Jawa and Forty Two, the Perak uses a larger motor. The engine's displacement has been bumped from 293cc to 334cc by way of a larger bore. With this, the Perak puts out 30.4PS and 31Nm, which is 3PS and 3Nm more than the other Jawas. Also, the revised motor complies with BS6 emission regulations and works in conjunction with a 6-speed transmission.

 

A unique swingarm setup:

A bobber design begs for a hardtail look where the rear wheel looks like it is directly mounted to the frame. While this gives the motorcycle an authentic old-school look, it isn't comfortable for the rider. To offer the old school hardtail look yet be comfortable at the same time, the monoshock has been neatly positioned under the seat. The setup is just like the one seen on the Triumph Bonneville Bobber. It gets disc brakes at both ends aided by dual-channel ABS.

 

India’s most affordable bobber:

At Rs 1.94 lakh, the Perak is the most affordable bobber you can buy. The next cheapest bobber available in India is the Triumph Bonneville Bobber, which costs Rs 10.28 lakh (ex-showroom India). However, its price tag is justified as it packs a larger 1200cc liquid-cooled motor that delivers 77PS and 106Nm. 

The Jawa Perak is surely one of the most affordable ways to own a factory custom motorcycle.
