With the motorcycles having a 293cc engine, the mileage can be considered as a respectable figure. However, ARAI tests are conducted in a tight setup with many controlled conditions that do not replicate in the real world. It’s direct and most prominent competitor, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 recorded an average of 37 km/l, giving the Jawa duos a slight edge in terms of fuel efficiency.
To recall, Mahindra resurrected Jawa as a Neo-Retro motorcycle brand in 2018. Both the bikes share the same engine as the Mahindra Mojo with a different tuning. The liquid-cooled DOHC 293cc engine churns out 27 bhp of power and 28 Nm of peak torque. The bikes have telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Both the bikes differ slightly in terms of looks but have the same kerb weight of 170 kg.
For braking, both the bikes are offered with single-channel ABS as standard with dual-channel ABS as an option. After a waiting period for months, Classic Legends has finally started delivering the bikes to its customers who had made bookings from November 15 last year.
