Jawa Motorcycles announced that they have closed online bookings for the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two due to an overwhelming response from customers in India. Online bookings for the Jawa motorcycles were closed effectively at midnight on 25th December. One of the reasons for the immense popularity is the cult following amongst the Jawa community. Another reason is due to the fact that the Jawa will challenge the Royal Enfield Bullet, Bullet Electra and Classic 350. The company has already launched 10 dealerships across India. Four dealerships in Pune, three in Bangalore and five in Delhi.
Speaking about this development, Anupam Thareja, Co-Founder, Classic Legends Pvt Ltd. said, “With such a tremendous response, it is my duty to inform the customers that we are sold out till September 2019 based on the current online bookings. Authenticity and honesty have been the hallmark of the brand. With such a large booking order, Jawa believes it is only fair to announce the waiting period for those with confirmed bookings. The current waiting period for online bookings already extends till September 2019 however the deliveries will start from March 2019 as per the booking sequence.”
The company will soon send out a communication directly informing every customer about their delivery timeline. We will work on ramping up our production to reduce the waiting period, but the quality is paramount for us and we request patience and understanding from Jawa fans. The wait we promise will be worth it,” adds Anupam. Jawa Motorcycles is now focussing on its retail experience and continuing with the planned roll-out of 100+ dealerships that are on-schedule to be opened across the country by 15th February 2019.
Speaking on the network strategy, Anupam added, “Given the continued demand for bookings, all dealerships will be open for test rides and we would encourage our buyers to come experience the Jawas and build a relationship with us. While the dealerships will continue to take bookings for deliveries beyond September, we believe it was our responsibility to transparently set delivery expectations for bookings done at dealerships. We invite customers to walk into our showrooms for further bookings.”
