About the bike
Jawa has now revealed that the new Perak BS6 makes more power than before. It comes equipped with a 334cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected motor which is capable of delivering 30 bhp of power and 32.74 Nm of torque. That is noticeably more power and torque than before. The gear ratios too have been optimized for a better ride experience. Derived from the standard Jawa, the Perak gets a revised design and frame, a larger motor, and slightly better components, which overall make it an impressive package for bike enthusiasts.
Customers can book the Jawa Perak for a token amount of Rs 10,000, and bookings will be capped. The Perak, is priced at INR 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), which makes it the most affordable 350cc motorcycle on sale in India, competing with Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc classic edition.
As mentioned above, the Jawa Perak comes with a BS6-compliant 334cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor that makes 30 bhp of power and 32 Nm of torque. It also comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. Jawa has revised the gear ratios for a more smoother riding experience. Underpinnings include a new double-cradle frame suspended with telescopic front forks and rear mono-shock with 7-step preload adjustability. Braking power is sufficient, thanks to its front and rear disc brakes with standard ABS.
The instrument console features a simple and minimalist design with just the speedometer, odometer and fuel gauge. The bike gets a dual-channel ABS for a safe ride. Since the wheels are spoked, it gets tubed tyres on both ends. The bike is strictly a single seater as the design of the swing-arm does not accommodate a pillion seat, which could hamper its practicality sometimes.
The primary competitor of the Jawa Perak is the Royal Enfield Classic 350, which is the best selling 350cc retro bike in the Indian market. The dual-channel ABS variant of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 is priced between INR 1.67 lakh and INR 1.84 lakh (ex-showroom). The Jawa Perak also goes up against the Benelli Imperiale 400 whose prices start at Rs 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom India).
