Jawa Scrambler spied testing. Based on Jawa Forty Two

Classic Legends, the company part-owned by Mahindra, may introduce a new scrambler model based on the Jawa Forty Two in the near future. A camouflaged test mule was spotted recently in Pune, Maharashtra. Looking at the photos, it is clear that the model is based on the Forty Two.  The Jawa Scrambler has a raised rear sub-frame, which gives it a taller stance. It features dual-purpose tyres, fork gaiters, off-road styled seat and an exposed rear section. The engine layout and the engine covers are similar to the Forty Two along with other bits like the mudguard, fuel tank, wheels and even the suspension. The new scrambler motorcycle may get the 293 cc single-cylinder engine which makes 27 bhp of max power at around 6,800 rpm and 27.03 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm. There i...
