The word ‘classic’ for the lot that goes bonkers over anything on two-wheels translates to motorcycles like the Jawa, a name that brings a heavy sense of nostalgia. What we have here, a whole 23 years later, is Classic Legend’s reincarnation of that motorcycle which is aptly called the Jawa. Now, apart from the mushy feelings which its competitors also seem to give, the Jawa is built to offer easy rideability and is aimed at buyers looking to upgrade from scooters or smaller 150cc motorcycles.
While we have ridden the Jawa before to give you an overview, it was time to put it through some more tests to find out what this vintage-looking piece of modern machinery is capable of.
