The most expensive bike, with frame number 1, sold for Rs. 1 crore, 43 lakh and 25 thousand. Our experts have crunched the numbers, and that comes to around $70,000.

Jawa is not the only Indian manufacturer with military connections. Royal Enfield started producing the Bullet in India during the 1950's to meet Indian Army and Police requirements. Royal Enfield recently commemorated their military heritage with the Classic 500 Pegasus, and the Classic Signals 350.

Royal Enfield, unsurprisingly, has not been overly enthusiastic about the popularity for the new Jawa models. Earlier this year, Siddhartha Lal, the Managing Director and CEO of Royal Enfield's parent company, Eicher Motors, expressed displeasure at the idea of Jawa eating into Royal Enfield's market segment. He was quoted as saying "New entrants, of course, there will be many and more shall be coming up. There will be copycat types and there will be people doing totally different things and that is part of a competitive nature. We have a very good product line and very strong plans. We are on a great wicket, it's the others who have to try hard to even take a nibble out of us."

Fighting words indeed.
