Upcoming Jawa roadster bike previewed in spy images; launch soon
Jawa Motorcycles is expected to launch a new roadster bike in India in the coming days. In the latest development, a camouflaged test mule of the two-wheeler has been spied on test, revealing important design details. The pictures suggest that it will have a circular headlight, a flyscreen, a swooping rear fender, and blacked-out alloy wheels. Here are more details.
Why does this story matter?
The upcoming Jawa roadster has been found testing in India for quite some time and is expected to source its engine from the brand's Standard and Forty-Two models. On our shores, the two-wheeler will take on rivals like the Royal Enfield Hunter 350. This will offer customers more choices around the Rs. 2 lakh price figure.
The motorbike will have fork gaiters and a stepped-up seat
The upcoming Jawa bike will have a muscular fuel tank, a stepped-up seat, a lengthy blacked-out exhaust, a small flyscreen, and front fork gaiters. The vehicle should pack a digital instrument cluster, an all-LED setup for lighting, and ride on black-colored alloy wheels. Its fuel storage capacity and kerb weight will be disclosed at the time of launch.
It will run on a 27hp, 293cc engine
The upcoming Jawa motorcycle is expected to be fueled by a 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 27hp and a peak torque of 27.05Nm. The mill will be linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
It will get telescopic front forks
In terms of safety equipment, the new Jawa roadster bike should be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with ABS to avoid skidding on the roads while braking. Suspension duties on the two-wheeler will be taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and twin shock absorbers on the rear end.
What about the pricing?
Jawa will reveal the pricing details of its roadster bike in India at the time of its launch. However, the two-wheeler is expected to sport a price figure of around Rs. 2 lakh (ex-showroom).
