Only 100 units of the new Jawa 42 Tawang Edition will be manufactured and will be for customers in Arunachal Pradesh only. The new Special Edition is inspired by the legendary Lungta or Wind Horse.
Sharing this information, Anupam tweeted, “I am excited to share this special edition Jawa for the Tawang festival inspired by the mythical Lungta or Pawan horse. Only 100 units of these will be produced, especially for bikers from Arunachal. Will be for you. Look forward to riding, with you soon!” He has also tagged Arunachal Chief Minister Pema Khandu and Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra in the tweet.
The teaser video shows the matte black finished Jawa 42 with wind horse motif on the fenders. There is a special inscription on the fenders and side panels as well as on the fuel tank. Each of the 100 units of special edition motorcycles will have a distinct bronze commemorative medal.
It will look different but the engine of the Jawa 42 Tawang Edition will remain the same. It is powered by a 294 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that develops 27 bhp at approx 6,800 rpm and 26.84 Nm at 5,000 rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
It gets specifications like bar-end mirrors, a flyscreen and alloy wheels with a headlight grille. The Jawa 42 Tawang Edition is likely to be priced at Rs 1.91 lakh (ex-showroom) more premium than the standard version.
Explain that the exhaust outlets, rear springs and front telescopic forks get the black treatment in the current Jawa. The pillion grab rail design and the retro-modern bike also get a new windscreen.
At present, the most expensive bike in the portfolio of Jawa motorcycles is Jawa Perak. Its price ranges from Rs 1.97 Lakh to 2.06 Lakh, ex-showroom. Jawa Perak is followed by Jawa 42, whose dual-channel ABS variant costs Rs 1.91 lakh, ex-showroom. When the company launched it in February 2021, it was priced at Rs 1.84 lakh, ex-showroom.
Apart from this, the price of other Jawa models like Jawa 42 spoke wheel and Jawa standard models is Rs 1,000 more. Jawa Motorcycles has recently also launched a special edition of its Jawa Standard in the market. This special edition Jawa Standard has been introduced in two new color options Khaki and Midnight Grey. The company has introduced both these colors to celebrate the 50th anniversary of India’s 1971 war victory.
