The resurrected brand Jawa commenced deliveries of the first batch of their motorcycles. The buzz around Jawa and Jawa 42 has been quite a lot on social media. There were a lot of questions posted on the digital space out of which the one question remained pertinent… Kitna deti hai? How much does it deliver per litre. Understandable for a market like India which has been obsessed with fuel efficiency for decades.
The company Classic Legends, which owns the brand Jawa now took to Twitter to answer that question. In response to one such tweet, Jawa has revealed that the ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India)-certified, fuel-efficiency figure for the Jawa and the Forty Two is 37.5kpl.
37.5kmpl is a very respectable figure considering the bikes are powered by a 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, DOHC engine that produces 27hp and 28Nm of peak torque. But the ARAI tests are conducted in-house under controlled conditions that are difficult to emulate in the real world. To bring a much clearer picture on the efficiency figures in the real world, Mahindra Mojo XT 300 that shares the same engine returned a figure of 28kpl in the city and 33.4kpl on the highway. The figures are a long-form approach to give a ballpark figure. Of course, the Jawas are in a different state of tune than the Mahindra Mojo XT 300.
Production at Jawa seems to be happening in full swing as the bike-maker has been adhering to the announced timelines. The company has commenced deliveries in order of the booking sequence that began in November. Currently, the Jawa dealership network stands at 95 dealerships across 77 cities.
The Jawa and Jawa Forty Two are available in single-channel and dual-channel ABS versions. The single-channel ABS versions are priced at Rs 1.64 lakh(ex-showroom) and Rs 1.55 lakh(ex-showroom), respectively, and the dual-channel ABS variants are priced at Rs 1.72 lakh(ex-showroom) and Rs 1.63 lakh(ex-showroom), respectively.
