Paying homage to the Indian Army’s victory in the 1971 war, Jawa has launched two new special edition colour schemes of the Jawa. The changes are cosmetic, and the mechanicals continues to be the same.
Jawa has introduced two special editions of its motorcycle. Both the special edition motorcycles pay homage to the Indian army victory in the 1971 war.
The special edition models continue with the same mechanicals and cycle parts as that of the standard one. Both motorcycles have been priced at Rs 1.93 lakh (ex-showroom), which is Rs 6,000 more than the price of the standard model.
The special edition Jawa models are offered in two colours, Khakhi and Midnight Grey. Jawa says the Jawa Khakhi signifies the spirit of selfless service to the nation by men in uniform. The Jawa Midnight Grey, on the other hand, is inspired by the Battle of Longewala, fought at the western frontier, along the Rajasthan border.
While the motorcycles sport a matte finish, the cycle parts such as the suspension components and wheels are painted in black. The fuel tank flanked by tricolour stripes also features an emblem consisting of the Army Insignia and a ‘laurel wreath’, symbolizing the 1971 victory. Jawa says that both motorcycles' seats have been redesigned.
The engine is the same 293cc liquid-cooled engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. The power figure also remains unchanged at 27bhp and 27Nm of torque. The motorcycles are available at all Jawa dealerships, and the company has not confirmed if these two motorcycles will see a limited run or not.
