Jawa Perak review: Great looking bike, but what about value?

Buying a Perak is an out-and-out heart decision, and will gladden it every time you look at and ride the bike. You have to ask yourself if that is reason enough.

Sometimes, all you want to do is stand out from the crowd by a mile, even if the decision isn’t a particularly a logical one. These are the times when you decide to go entirely with your heart, overruling your head completely, and I daresay the Jawa Perak is just the thing for such an occasion.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again — Jawas are among the very best looking motorcycles in the country, and the Perak simply wallops it out of the park in the stand-and-stare department. If you want attention every time you head out on a ride, this bike is guaranteed to get you bucket-loads of it.

The Perak is made in the ‘bobber’ style of motorcycle design. What this usually involves is radically modifying a production motorcycle by stripping it of superfluous parts and weight, removing the front fender, lowering its ride height and shortening the rear fender, among other things.

What Jawa has essentially done is to release a ‘custom’ motorcycle straight from the factory, and a smashing job it’s done of it too (it does have a small front fender, though). When the company announced its comeback a couple of years ago, it was this model that caught everyone’s eye, and it’s a good thing it has finally been launched.
