Embrace The Dark with ‘Perak’

The newest Classic Legends model - the Jawa Perak - has undoubtedly been the most anticipated motorcycle of 2020. A classic motorcycle that brings back the past, yet is far ahead of its time, the BSVI-compliant machine is India’s first custom-made bobber motorcycle.

“When we set out to build the Perak, the goal was simple – to create a motorcycle with the right blend of exclusivity, individuality and performance, with a hint of the sinister and dark,” says Anupam Thareja, co-founder, Classic Legends Ltd.

Powered by a 334cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder, four stroke, DOHC cross-port engine delivering 30.64 bhp of power and a higher 32.74 Nm of torque, the Jawa Perak, with its bobbed fenders, signature chopped twin exhaust and a floating seat embodies the spirit of a creature of the night – a stealthy, dark, vigilante. The Perak is priced at Rs. 1,94,000 ex-showroom.

“The Perak product team spent their lockdown time fruitfully, meticulously fine tuning the engine to crank up the torque by nearly 2 Nm from its earlier 31 Nm. This allows for better pulling performance from both standstill and during rolling acceleration. Coupled with the new cross-port engine technology, the machine delivers a thrilling performance but remains compliant with BSVI regulations. The six-speed transmission puts the power on the tarmac where it belongs, its ratios optimized to offer a great riding experience through the gears,” Mr Thareja added.

The motorcycle has a completely reworked chassis with an all-new swingarm and is engineered to offer the optimum transverse, longitudinal, and torsional rigidity. The frame and swingarm stiffness have been fine tuned to offer a linear feel, aiding stability over straight tracks and poise along winding roads. This plays a significant role in improving the handling. “We’re proud of our creation,” says Mr. Thareja.

Perak’s digital marketing campaign reached 12 million people with 1.8 million individuals engaging with it. Deliveries began mid-July across India and the beast is available for test rides and bookings at all Jawa dealerships across India.

In the wake of the Corona pandemic, a comprehensive standard operating procedure has been put in place across all sales outlets, and dealerships to ensure the safety of employees, customers and visitors. Each showroom comprises trained teams that are equipped to follow social distancing norms, and hygiene & sanitation protocols, for a worry-free purchase experience.
