JAWA 300-6 300-9

In the 350cc category Jawa has four different get ups donning with the same engine. And by the same engine, I mean the same engine in all the bikes and also the same engine that did duty on the classics. It is a 2 stroke 343.5cc single engine with twin cylinders with maximum power of 22.8 hp. Start is still through kick lever and has the same 4 speed gearbox. It sports spoke wheels and the tank is quite large with a 17 litre capacity which is very good for a small capacity bike.

Jawa has given the bike with a single front disc, so that is an upgrade and top speed is around the 120kmph mark. It has a Basic version and built on it are the Style, Tramp and Police.

In Argentina, Jawa has its own production house or it seems. Actually came across a link of Jawa Argentina and although there is not much information, there are a lot of pictures of cruiser styled Jawa named 300-6 and 300-9. There is another Street bike named ‘JAWA 350 – ROUTE 40’ and it is mentioned that this bike will be available from next month (October 2009) onwards.

It seems Jawa Argentina has a lot of history to it. To start off, the website claims that in 1995 a Jawa motorcycle travelled 5500 kilometers in 76 hours and later in 1996, it again travelled 10,103 km in 100 hours. I am not too sure if I got the latter one right as it means that the bike on an average did 100kilometers per hour compared to 72 for the previous year.

Basically there are two new types of Jawa models in Argentina, one is the JAWA 350 – ROUTE 40 and the other is the JAWA 300 which has 2 models, 300-6 and 300-9. Both models share the same 273cc 4 stroke single engine. The JAWA 300-9 is a new roll out and it coincides with the 80th anniversary of the birth of JAWA and it is a modern machine.

Between the models, the 300-6 is more stretched out, a la chopper style and has a length of 2550mm. The bikes weigh 180 kilograms and I guess although for a single engine bike with 273cc and around 28hp just might not be enough for touring, but for general everyday city and outskirts cruising, it would do just fine. Top speed is a decent 130kmph.It has got over the ‘kick start turning into the gear lever’ and has electric start with CDI ignition.

The Jawa 350 has been in production in Argentina since 1992 and the website states that they have sold over 30,000 units. Prior to that, this 2 stroke wonder was imported and around 700 has been imported to Argentina during that period according to the website.

The JAWA brand since its inception was characterized by robustness and reliability of its products. It had a very good cruise factor and it was very smooth in its own way. No plastic parts, all metal just the way a bike should be and it was also a good allrounder as it could cruise, climb hills if not mountains, was very easy for maintenance and was also easy on the pocket.

Just to let you know, the bike comes out from the country who gave the SKODA brand to the world. How is that for dependability? Maybe they should reach out to the non European and non U.S markets, like South America, Africa, South Asia because in these countries, Jawa is much respected and now it has become sort of a classic especially in these countries, so it will not be difficult to get their foothold back.

After all, if at one time, they were present in 120 countries, they were just right up there with the best.
