Classic Legends reveals Jawa's 293cc, single-cylinder engine


Classic Legends, a subsidiary of Mahindra has revealed the engine that will power the soon to be launched Jawa motorcycles in India.

Jawa motorcycles will be powered by a 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine. The engine is built on a BS-VI ready platform and produces 27 BHP and 28 Nm of torque. It is claimed to have a flat torque curve.

The new engine was developed in Varese, Italy. It boasts a classic look featuring the JAWA logo on the cam cover, while the crankcase is finished in chrome. Much like the classic bike, the new model will have twin exhausts, that have been tuned to replicate the tone of a classic 2-stroke engine.

Earlier this year, Anand Mahindra had confirmed the return of the Jawa brand to India. The bikes are likely to feature a retro look and would compete with Royal Enfield in the Indian market.
