JAWA. since 1929.

Estabilished by František Janeček, in former Czechoslovakia, JAWA earned the hearts of hundreds of thousends people all over the world. 

During its almost hundred-year history, JAWA had to overcome many obstacles – nazi direction and secret production, communists overtake and nationalization… But JAWA managed to shine bright among the world motorcycle brands and not many can compete with Jawa when it comes to motorcycle sports. JAWA machines have participated in every discipline of motorcycle sport and many world champions have ridden JAWA motorcycles.

JAWA is now returning to the roots with the recreation of the most famous classic motorcycles.

The JAWA renaissance

The new chapter of JAWA began at 2018 when the new models – Jawa Pérák, Jawa 300 CL and Jawa 300 CL Forty two – were launched in India. 

Why India? 

During the 60ties Jawa was first introduced in India where a production of Jawa motorcycles under licence took place. That´s when the Indian Jawa cult began and following the catchfrase at the time “Forever Bike, Forever Value” the cult still continues.

In 2016 the partnership with India was renewed when Mahindra Ltd. and Jawa started a new collaboration. First three new Jawa models were soon born… 

Jawa Pérák

This new 350 cc machine has inherited the lines of it´s grandfather - Jawa 250 Pérák, a war born rebel.
And with the fine touch of Pininfarina we are today able to enjoy this stylish bobber.

Once the Nazis took over, all factories were forced to produce the weaponry and work on civilian projects was strickly verboten.

 But the team of engineers, led by Dr. J. Frei, couldn´t just let go. They had set up multiple secret locations and used camouflage by working alongside the Wehrmacht motorcycles repair centre. When going for a test ride, the undercover engineers had to disguise the motorcycle by painting it army green and carying fake SS licence plates. Once stopped by the patrol, they claimed the bike to be an exclusive prototipe for the SS. Luckily no one saw throw their ruse and by the end of the war, the brand new Pérák was ready to see the bright world. 

The name Pérák was given to honour the urban legend which supposedly left after the war on a motorbike…

After the launch, Pérák was exhibited at Paris Motorcycle Show in 1946 where it won a gold medal.

Jawa 300 CL

You can never go wrong with the forever classic look of Jawa 300 CL. The polished chrome and retro curves will never go out of style.

The Kývačka 250 followed the Perak 250, sporting a 12 horsepower engine – two more horsepower than the Perak 250.

A modern electric system, better brakes, and improved suspension components ensured that these motorcycles performed extraordinarily well in enduros and trials competitions, stacking up a host of comprehensive victories.

These motorcycles were famous for their symmetrical design language, ease of maintenance and reliability.  It was also the first Jawa motorcycle to have rear suspension springs, hence these were also called as “Kývačka 250” which translates to “Spring 250”.
