It gets a BS6-compliant 334cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor that makes 30.64PS and 32.74Nm of torque mated to a six-speed gearbox. Jawa has revised the gear ratios for a better ride experience. Underpinnings include a new double-cradle frame suspended with telescopic front forks and rear monoshock with 7-step preload adjustability. Braking is via front and rear disc brakes with standard ABS.
The Perak features a blacked-out theme and comes with a tan-coloured single seat, blacked-out engine, exhaust and spoke wheels. The swingarm construction is similar to the Triumph Bonneville Bobber’s ‘swing cage’ unit. This setup allows for the rear monoshock to be neatly hidden below the rider’s seat. The tail lamp is located just below the seat whereas the indicators are mounted on the rear fender. In typical bobber fashion, even the front fender is chopped and the bodywork is minimalistic.
The instrument console features a minimalistic design with just the speedometer, odometer and fuel gauge. The bike gets a dual-channel ABS for optimal safety. Since the wheels are spoked, it gets tubed tyres on both ends. The bike is strictly a single seater as the design of the swingarm does not accommodate a pillion seat.
