Jawa opens first two dealerships in India in Pune

The Pune dealerships in Baner and Chinchwad are the first among the over 100 Jawa dealerships that will be set up in India, says maker Classic Legends

Mumbai: Czech Jawa Motorcycles, which relaunched in India on 15 November with the Jawa, Jawa 42 and the Jawa Perak bikes, launched on Saturday two dealerships in Pune—its first in the country. With the two dealerships— at Chinchwad and Baner in Pune—becoming fully operational, customers can book and test ride the Jawa and Jawa 42 motorcycles, Classic Legends said.

The Pune dealerships are the first among the over 100 Jawa dealerships that will be set up in India.

Mahindra and Mahindra subsidiary Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd on 15 November relaunched Jawa bikes with a 293cc single-cylinder engine based on the one powering the Mahindra Mojo. Besides the Mahindra Group, which owns 60% stake in Classic Legends, Rustomjee Group and Phi Capital Management also hold stakes in the joint venture.

In 2016, Mahindra Group struck a deal with the Czechoslovakia-based motorcycle company, which allowed Classic Legends to launch and market bikes under the Jawa brand in India and East Asia. The bikes are being produced at Mahindra’s manufacturing facility at Pithampura near Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

Priced at 1.64 lakh and 1.55 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Jawa and Jawa 42 are seen as the first real challengers to Royal Enfield in the retro cruiser segment of motorcycles. However, both cost more than Royal Enfield Classic 350, which retails at 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
