The Perak motorcycle traces back to war-torn Europe when Czechoslovakia, home of the Jawa motorcycle, was under Nazi occupation. Jawa was brought to a stark halt, as their factories were taken over by the SS and used to keep Nazi military vehicles running and well serviced.

In the shadows of this dark time, a team of Jawa engineers, lead by Dr. J Frei, worked in secrecy on a new project. This team, which included Josef Jozil and Rudolphe Vykoukal, knew the perils of war couldn’t last forever and the world would one day be ready for a new Jawa motorcycle. They would be ready.

The group of Jawa engineers worked tirelessly to develop a new motorcycle, perfecting the art of deceit and quietly defying the Gestapo. When they were not building, they were surreptitiously testing the motorcycle, getting past the Gestapo by wearing Wehrmacht fatigues and DKW badges during their trial runs. The Jawa team’s persistence and courage was rewarded. When the war was declared over and the smoke finally cleared, the new motorcycle – called the Perak – was ready. The Perak is lauded as a historical marvel and set the stage for Jawa’s success in post-war Europe.

As far as the model historical milestones of our brand are concerned it is without any doubt Pérák that is written in bold letters in the brand history.

The typically sloping rear part of the motorcycle, the compact design of the motorcycle as a whole, the harmonious, eye-pleasing lines, the stylish single-seater design and, of course, the drop-shaped tank with the logo which conquered the world. All this brings together the historical and contemporary Pérák models.

The new JAWA 350 CL Pérák model is much more advanced from a technical point of view. Of course, it meets the currently applicable EURO 5 standards thanks to its liquid-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC single-cylinder engine with a displacement of 334 cm3 and a power output of 22.54 kW. Although the engine power output is significantly higher in comparison to its older sibling, the JAWA 300 CL engine, it is not used to achieve a higher top speed on this motorcycle, but to significantly improve the engine thrust, and therefore for achieving greater active safety as well. Damping is ensured by a central suspension unit in the rear part of the motorcycle. The BYBRE front disc brake is still complemented by a rear disc brake on this model.

The JAWA 350 CL Pérák motorcycle is manufactured based on a Licence Agreement by the India-based company “Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd.”. Its production is thus directly related to the JAWA motorcycles produced in India in the 1960s, later also known as the YEZDI brand motorcycles.
