The newest Classic Legends model - the Jawa Perak - has undoubtedly been the most anticipated motorcycle of 2020. A classic motorcycle that brings back the past, yet is far ahead of its time, the BSVI-compliant machine is India’s first custom-made bobber motorcycle.
“When we set out to build the Perak, the goal was simple – to create a motorcycle with the right blend of exclusivity, individuality and performance, with a hint of the sinister and dark,” says Anupam Thareja, co-founder, Classic Legends Ltd.
Powered by a 334cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder, four stroke, DOHC cross-port engine delivering 30.64 bhp of power and a higher 32.74 Nm of torque, the Jawa Perak, with its bobbed fenders, signature chopped twin exhaust and a floating seat embodies the spirit of a creature of the night – a stealthy, dark, vigilante. The Perak is priced at Rs. 1,94,000 ex-showroom.
“The Perak product team spent their lockdown time fruitfully, meticulously fine tuning the engine to crank up the torque by nearly 2 Nm from its earlier 31 Nm. This allows for better pulling performance from both standstill and during rolling acceleration. Coupled with the new cross-port engine technology, the machine delivers a thrilling performance but remains compliant with BSVI regulations. The six-speed transmission puts the power on the tarmac where it belongs, its ratios optimized to offer a great riding experience through the gears,” Mr Thareja added.
