Founded by Rustom and Farrokh Irani, the firm Ideal Jawa began importing Jawa motorcycles into India in 1961. Recognising the demand, Jawa established a factory in Mysore in 1961 with support from the king at the time, Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar. Between 1961 and 1971, Ideal Jawa manufactured the 250 Type 353/04 under licence. Jawa motorcycles quickly earned a reputation for being rugged, simple, and unbreakable.
The Jawa 250 was the first choice of commute for the urban youth – and many brave racers took home wins on the Jawa 250, inspired by the European racing scene. Fariborz Irani, CK Chinappa, and Somendar Singh were a few of the household names who made the brand famous racing these motorcycles on all kinds of terrain. By 1971, the Ideal Jawa company manufactured and sold the new motorcycles under the name “Yezdi” with technical assistance from Jawa.
Worth mentioning here is that the new Jawa is priced at Rs 1,64,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi), Jawa Forty Two is priced at Rs 1,55,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the Perak is priced at Rs 1,89,000. At these prices, these latest Jawa bikes will compete with the mid-priced segment that has been dominated by Royal Enfield for the past decade. The bikes will compete against Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Bajaj Dominar 400.
