  • Hi, i am interested to buy jawa bike. I always wanted to buy one during my college and initial working days. i am happy that now the time has come to fulfill my dream. Awaiting for launch.

  • Quite excited, I have a Yezdi Road King 1996 module kept in super stock condition ,looks like it just came out of showroom,
    In all signals I will be one of keywatcher because of Byke beating sound and Byke,
    If Mahendra takes the Yezdi Road King look and fix an 250 CC 4 stroke engine, nothing like that, all will follow the Race of Jawa instead of looking the showrooms of Enfiled and KTM or Bajajs
