Above on the page there are several PDF Manuals for JAWA Motorcycles, Scooter, Mopeds.
The JAWA company was founded in Prague in 1929 and is not named after the island, as it might seem.
The name is an abbreviation of the surname of the founder František Janeček and the Wanderer company, whose licensed equipment the company produced at the initial stage of its history.
The first Czech Wanderer was an expensive model with a four-stroke 500 cc engine, which was not popular. Much more common has become a bike with a 175 cc engine, which appeared in 1931.
In 1934, the Jawa brand began production of a motorcycle with a 350 cc four-stroke unit, and later with a 250 cc two-stroke unit.
After WWII, during which Jawa was under the control of the German authorities and produced military equipment, the 250 appeared, which received the nickname "Perak" (springy) for its softness.
In 1984, Jawa 350-638 motorcycle made its debut, and in 1986 the legendary Jawa 350-638-00 was published, which received the nickname “Banana”, “Pencil” and “Squirrel” for its characteristic appearance.
Currently, the Czech brand produces motorcycles in a nostalgic style using third-party developments. For example, the Jawa 350 OHC motorcycle is based on the Chinese model Shineray XY400.
At the end of 2018, a truly significant event took place - motorcycles under the famous brand, with a retro style and a new platform, are presented on the Indian market.
Striking bikes that have resonated with thousands of riders around the world are available in three versions - the classic Jawa, the Forty-Two with modern touches and the Perak bobber.
The first two modifications are equipped with a 293 cc liquid-cooled injection engine from Mahindra Mojo, stylized as an old Soviet air-cooled unit.
The more premium-positioned Perak has a 334 cc engine.
