Czech motorcycle manufacturer Jawa has launched an all-new 2017 Jawa 350 OHC model. The retro motorcycle retains the brand's yesteryear design and style with an updated mechanical package. The two-wheeler brand once at its prime in India, was recently purchased by Mahindra & Mahindra, sparking possibilities of the Jawa motorcycles making a comeback in the domestic market.
The new four-stroke motor meets Euro 4 emission norms in Europe, and falls in-line with European Union's (EU) decision to ban all 2-stroke motorcycles from 1st January 2017. What's new is the addition of electronic fuel-injection (EFI) and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) on the new Jawa 350 OHC. In fact, this is the first ever Jawa motorcycle to get ABS, which is mandated by Euro 4 norms.
Details on Jawa's comeback in India remains sketchy. It is likely that the brand could make an appearance at the 2018 Auto Expo and we just might catch a glimpse of the Jawa 350 OHC at the biennial event. If introduced, the bike is likely to be produced at Mahindra's Pithampur facility with the initial units possibly being Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kits.
