There is this Jawa Perak that has a bobber design that has a low-slung and there is a single seat floating. There are integrated taillights, a teardrop tank of fuel, wide handlebars. There is an option for the pillion seat on the bike. The design belongs to the Jawa bikes and there is a bullet shell-shaped headlamp. The body is blacked out with black paint. The engine of this bike is of higher capacity than other Jawa bikes of the previous generation. The engine uses 293 cc like the Jawa forty-two. There has been additional boring to pump in more power. The engine is BS6 compliant and so it is going to meet the emission regulations. There is a telescopic fork managing the suspension and there is a mono-shock unit at the tail-end.
There is a typical Bobber design and there are a chopped front and rear fenders. There is a solo saddle and the frame is slightly different to accommodate the wide swingarm. The colour scheme is matte black, the engine also is coloured black, and the headlights are gold. The bike throws up a striking poser even while it's stationary. There is an unmistakably charming hardtail look. There is a typical traditional oldish look. The bike surely is a head-turner.
There is not much difference between the Perak and the Jawa 42 except the fact that Perak displays some of the top order performance. The motorcycle runs for long stretches on the highways at high speed without much of any difference in ride comfort. The speed can go up to 125 kmph. The overall experience of its drive is more than satisfactory owing to a comfortable ride and easy handling ever on the rough or undulated roads.
The handling of the Perak is as good as the Jawa 42. There is little difference in control or vibration. The ground clearance should have been higher and that would have given better rides around the corners. Perak feels in control and confident negotiating the bends and the corners.
It has been priced at Rs. 1,89,000, ex-showroom Delhi.
