Jawa 300cc launch live updates:  Mahindra owned Classic Legends will unveil the Jawa brand in India in just a few hours. Jawa Motorcycles will look to take on Royal Enfield stake in the Indian Classic bike segment, by recreating the Royal Enfield ethos and resurrecting one of the companies oldest rivals in India, the Jawa Motorcycle. Like Royal Enfield, Jawa too has managed to maintain a cult following despite being off the market for almost 2 decades. Jawa will make their re-entry into the market with a brand new 300cc motor that tries to preserve the identity of the original 250cc two-stroke motor in a more modern avatar in the form of a 300 cc four-stroke motor. The stakes are high and a lot depends on the range of products that they will unveil today and the price. Stay tuned to this blog for all the news from the launch in Mumbai!

Jawa 300cc Styling

Like the Royal Enfield Classic motorcycle, the Jawa 300cc is also likely to build on the brands classic appeal. The rounded tank and headlamp cowl recreate the design of the Jawa that was on sale in India almost 30 years ago. A flat bench seat will be the major differentiator in comparison to the Royal Enfield Classic that gets a single saddle seat. Another big differentiator will be the Jawa's signature dual exhaust system!

Jawa 300cc Motorcycles Vs Royal Enfield Classic 300 Vs Classic 500

The Jawa 300 cc motorcycle is powered an all-new single cylinder 293 cc motor, the single cylinder motor is expected to make 27 hp and 28 Nm of torque. In terms of just power, the Jawa is at par with the Classic 500 that makes a similar 27 hp, however, torque is significantly lower with the Classic making about 41 Nm of torque thanks to Royal Enfield signature long stroke motor. Interestingly, the Classic 350 makes about 20 hp from its 350 cc motor, the torque output is closer to the output of the Jawa 300 at 28 Nm of torque. We will get a better understanding of how this power will translate to the performance on the Jawa once we have a weight figure for the Jawa considering that both the Royal Enfield Classic are significantly heavy tipping scales at 192 kg for the 350cc while the 500cc weighs in at 194 kgs. The Jawa one-ups both bikes with a newer six-speed gearbox, where the Royal Enfields both use 5-speed gearboxes. This could be indicative of a higher top-speed for the Jawa 300 cc in comparison to the two.

Spy Shots reveal features of Jawa 300cc

Over the last few months, the Jawa has been caught on test a couple of times. The most recent spy shot that captured the bike captured the Jawa 300cc sans any form of camoflague. Here's what we can identify so far:1. Stopping force on the Jawa 300cc is likely to come from a disc brake in front with drums in the rear. 2. The 293 cc motor, will be liquid cooled as can be seen from the radiator upfront3. Rear-Suspension duties will be carried out a set of inverted gas-charged shock absorbers

Pricing of Jawa 300cc

Pricing will be key in the success of the Jawa brand, as of now we expect the Jawa 300cc motorcycle to be positioned between the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Classic 500. The expected floor price for the Jawa Motorcycle is likely to be about 1.5 lakh for the base variant. If Classic legend do keep this price point it is likely to give the company the boost they need to make headway into the market!

Jawa 300cc Engine Specifications

One of the things that we know for sure ahead of the launch of the Jawa Brand is the motor that will underpin the motorcycle. In the run-up to the launch, Jawa unveiled the all-new motor that will underpin the new motorcycle(s?). Powering the Jawa is a 293 cc 4-stroke motor that has an output of 27 hp and 28 Nm of torque. The motor was designed around a baseplate of the Mojos' motor but gets a whole lot of changes, including a design that captures the way the motor on the Jawa used to look 30 years ago.
