First up, we have the Khaki livery that has the bike draped in a matte sand-inspired shade similar to its arch-rival, the Royal Enfield Classic 350’s Desert Storm shade.
The Midnight Grey is stealthy, owing to its matte grey finish that looks similar to the Perak’s colour.
To help these two stand out from the pack, the engine, exhaust, and spoke wheels have been finished in black instead of the chrome used in the standard paint options.
Up front, the round halogen headlamp gets a blacked-out nacelle, adding to the bike’s retro appeal.
However, our favourite touch on these liveries is the special insignia on the fuel tank and the pinstripes in the Indian flag’s colours.
Jawa has also updated other aspects of the bike, including a revised seat pan, firmer suspension, a deeper exhaust note, and a trip meter, all of which now come as standard. All these were first introduced on the Jawa 42 2.1.
Along with this, the Jawa Standard now puts out 27.33PS, 0.82PS more than before, thanks to the updated 293cc single-cylinder engine with cross-port technology, a repositioned lambda sensor, and better fueling.
The bike continues to ride on an 18-inch front and 17-inch rear tyre, sprung on a telescopic fork and dual shock absorbers. With a low kerb weight of 172kg and a seat height of just 765mm, the updated Standard retains its easy-going nature.
Jawa has priced these special liveries at Rs Rs 1,93,357 (ex-showroom, Delhi), making them Rs 6,000 dearer than the standard Maroon option. While this is slightly steep for just a paint job, we feel the Jawa still offers an unmatched price-to-power ratio. Not to forget, for Rs 6,000, you also get brownie points for being extra patriotic.
