Jawa Motorcycles has launched a limited-edition motorcycle based on the Jawa called the ‘90th Anniversary Edition’ to mark the 90th year of the brand. Only 90 units of Jawa 90th Anniversary Edition will be produced.
Priced the same as the standard Jawa – Rs 1.72 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the bike will reach dealerships on October 15, 2019, and customers with existing bookings, or those who make one before October 22, will be eligible to opt for a lucky draw that will determine whether they will get the limited-edition bike. The delivery of motorcycles will happen immediately after the draw results are revealed.
The foundation of Jawa Motorcycles was laid in 1929 by Frantisek Janecek in erstwhile Czechoslovakia, with the first motorcycle being Jawa 500 OHV. Jawa 90th Anniversary Edition pays homage to the beginnings of the iconic brand.
The limited-edition Jawa features a red-and-ivory paint scheme inspired by the Jawa 500 OHV – the brand’s first motorcycle, which was conceived in 1929. Every motorcycle will also feature a 90th Anniversary commemorative emblem on the fuel tank, along with an individual serial number.
Jawa 90th Anniversary Edition is based on Jawa dual-channel ABS variant. The motorcycle is powered by a 293 cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that delivers 27 bhp and 28 Nm of peak torque. The motor is mated to a constant-mesh 6-speed gearbox.
