Classic Legends, a subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra, currently retails three motorcycles - Jawa, Jawa Forty-Two and the Jawa Perak in the Indian market. The company has been receiving tremendous customer demand in India. However, Jawa Motorcycles now says it's production process is more streamlined and that will ensure deliveries meet the promised timelines.
Speaking to NDTV’s carandbike on the sideline of the launch of Jawa Perak, Anupam Thareja, Co-Founder & Director - Classic LegendsAnupam Thareja, Co-Founder & Director - Classic Legends, said, "We've reached the stage where we can now really ramp it up. Most importantly our vendors are in place, there are 3000 of them. They understand our production, they understand the quality we require, they understand our deliveries.”
“Today, now we are in a linear position that we will ramp up that thing the way we want it. Perak is a separate line, so it does affect the production of either the Jawa or Jawa Forty Two. I won't give much but you know we have other products coming in as well. So yes, it's much more planned," he said.
He further revealed that Jawa Motorcycles will now be taking bookings for a three-month cycle. “The bookings will be closed once the bikes can be delivered in three months, and will open again once those orders are met. With the Jawa Perak, bookings will be open from January 2020, while deliveries are set to begin from April 2, 2020,” Anupam Thareja added.
On Friday, Jawa Perak was launched in India for an introductory price of Rs 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Jawa Perak is powered by a BS6-compliant, 334 cc single-cylinder, DOHC liquid-cooled motor that produces 30 bhp and 31 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed transmission.
