Here’s The Staggeringly Beautiful Jawa Perak In Pictures
Here are a number of images which will help you get up close with the newly launched custom bobber
Behold, the Jawa Perak’s here! And it looks unbelievable pretty with its matte black paint job. It’s long, sits low to the ground and does away with unnecessary bits just like a bobber should. But the devil’s in the details, they say. So, we’ve rounded up a number of images which will help you get up close with the newly launched custom bobber.
The Perak retains the Jawa’s classic styling but gets its own unique identity thanks to the dark custom paint job and chopped front and rear fenders.
Adding to its character is a single tan seat. And before you ask, the bike doesn’t come with an optional rear seat.
Thankfully, the slash-cut exhaust showcased on the pre-production model has been retained and gives the bike a distinctive look.
The instrument console, although similar to the standard Jawa and Forty Two, gets a contrasting effect which should make it easier to read during broad daylight.
In typical Bobber style, the Perak features a set of blacked-out bar-end mirrors.
The tail light is neatly tucked away under the seat and gets a well-designed body panel finished in silver.
Its single seat is set at 750mm, which makes it 15mm lower than the standard Jawa. This should be ideal for shorter riders.
That said, the added kit and rebored engine render the Perak 9kg heavier than the standard Jawa.
The double-cradle chassis from the standard bikes had to be tweaked to accommodate the new wide cage-type swingarm.
The rear indicators too have been repositioned and mounted lower than usual on the rear fender.
Powering the bike is a bored-out 334cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor that belts out 30.4PS of peak power and 31Nm of maximum torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. Thankfully, the engine complies with BS6 emission norms.
From the looks of it, the riding posture is fairly comfortable with mid-set footpegs and a straight handlebar.
Its suspension setup comprises of a conventional telescopic fork and an adjustable swingarm-mounted monoshock. The monoshock has been hidden so well that it gives the Perak a the effect of having a hard-tail.
A 280mm and 240mm front and rear disc paired with a dual-channel ABS setup from Continental help anchor the bike.
The production-spec bike gets Ceat tyres unlike the pre-production model which featured stickier Pirelli rubber. Its tyres sizes measure in at 100/90-18 front and 140/70-17 tyres.
Well, that’s about all there is to know about the bike. Bookings for the bike, on the other hand, will begin from January 1 next year with deliveries set to commence from April 2.
