Jawa Perak Bobber Deliveries Begin
The motorcycle was launched in November 2019
- Deliveries of the bobber were initially supposed to commence from April 2, 2020, but had to be delayed due to the ongoing pandemic.
- It is the most affordable bobber in India.
- The Perak is also the most powerful Jawa bike in India.
After its launch in November 2019, deliveries of the Jawa Perak bobber have now commenced. It was initially scheduled to begin from April 2, 2020, but had to be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The good news for those who have booked one and waited for so long is that the engine in the Perak BS6 has been tuned to make slightly more power and torque. At 30.64PS and 32.74Nm, the motorcycle is more powerful and torquey by 0.2PS and 1.74Nm respectively, compared to the output figures quoted earlier. Jawa says it has also optimised the gear ratios for a more involved riding experience.
The motorcycle is priced at Rs 1,94,500 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it Rs 11,330 more expensive than the maroon colour dual-channel ABS variant of the standard Jawa. The first 13 motorcycles were delivered in Chandigarh, where customers from the Rolling Gold Motorcycle Club took part in a short ride.
As far as practicality is concerned, the Jawa Perak has a low seat height of just 750mm, making it accessible for shorter riders. It also weighs a manageable 175kg kerb. However, some riders may not like the fact that it is strictly a single seater due to the design of the swingarm. But to be fair, bobbers are meant to be minimalistic and the Perak is an authentic example of one.
Jawa has also announced a bunch of interesting finance schemes with EMIs starting from as low as Rs 6,666. You can read more about it here. There are no direct competitors to the Jawa Perak but in terms of pricing, the recently launched Benelli Imperiale 400 comes pretty close.
