Jawa Perak: First Impressions
The Jawa Perak is the third motorcycle model from Classic Legends Private Limited, a subsidiary of Mahindra and Mahindra, and the organisation behind the revival of the Jawa name. The Perak is a factory-custom motorcycle, and most-affordable Bobber -styled motorcycle. The difference between the Jawa, Jawa Forty-Two and the Jawa Perak is of course in the design, but the Perak gets a slightly bigger capacity engine, with more performance. While the Jawa Perak has already been launched, deliveries of the production model are expected to begin sometime from April 2020.
The Jawa Perak gets typical Bobber design, with chopped off front and rear fenders, a solo saddle and a slightly different frame to accommodate the wider and longer swingarm. Add to that the matte black colour scheme, blacked out engine with gold highlights, and it's a striking poser, even when standing still. And in true Bobber style, the Perak wears a hardtail look, and gives a typical old-school design, although the monoshock suspension is tucked away neatly under the seat. It's a looker for sure, and is a guaranteed head-turner, on the move, and even when parked.
