This is the second price hike announced by the company in 2021 – the last was in January
Due to rising input costs, several two-wheeler manufacturers have announced price increases this year. Jawa joins the list with prices of its motorcycles increased from around Rs 7,200 to Rs 8,700. The exact figure will be based on the model and variant.
Customers who reserve their Jawa motorcycle from July 8 (today) will have to pay according to the revised price. The news was reported by Car And Bike, an automotive information website owned by Mahindra. Mahindra also owns Jawa through their Classic Legends business.
Jawa also raised the prices of all of its motorcycles earlier this year in January. At that time, a single rate price hike of Rs 2,987 was applied to all models and variants. Later in February, the company launched the 2021 Jawa 42. It came with cosmetic updates, new color options, a new line of accessories, and a retuned engine that delivers a bit more power. 2021 Jawa 42 was launched at an increased price of Rs 1.84 lakh (ex-showroom).
The latest rise in the prices of Jawa motorcycles is mainly due to the increase in the cost of raw materials. All motorcycles will be largely the same as before. However, Jawa does offer a headset to its new customers. This should bring some relief to customers who will have to pay higher prices. But given that the helmet rule has been strictly enforced and most people already have one, the usefulness of the free helmet system seems uncertain.
Specifications of Jawa motorcycles
Jawa and Jawa 42 are powered by a liquid-cooled 293cc single cylinder DOHC engine capable of generating a maximum power of 27.33ps and maximum torque of 27.02Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed constant-mesh transmission. . The twins use a double cradle frame.

Standard variants are offered with front disc brake and rear drum brake, integrated with single-channel ABS. Customers have the option of choosing disc brakes at both ends, which will be mated to dual-channel ABS.
Speaking of the bobber-style Jawa Perak, the bike is powered by a liquid-cooled 334cc single cylinder engine that generates 30.64ps and 32.74Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed constant mesh transmission.
