Mahindra & Mahindra’s (M&M) premium motorcycle venture – Classic Legends is developing new models under its Jawa and BSA brands. Several future motorcycle models are under development and will be positioned under the Jawa brand, powered by the existing 300cc engine platform that currently powers the Mahindra Mojo.
It is indicated that the Mojo’s single-cylinder 300cc, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected motor is scalable and can be used as per the model profiling of the upcoming classic motorcycles under the Jawa brand (and potentially under BSA, too). Since Jawa’s popular historic models have been 250s and 350s, a scaled-down or scaled-up version (by 50cc) of this motor would help keep with the brand’s heritage. A 350cc motor would, of course, also help Mahindra take the fight to Royal Enfield’s doorstep, since all of the latter’s popular motorcycles belong to that displacement category. That being said, sticking with the 300cc layout will help in terms of costs and a faster project turnaround time.
Mahindra’s intent is clear. It aims to participate in the growing demand for the retro-classic and mid-capacity motorcycles globally.
