MotorcyclesJawa 001 Goes For Bonkers Sum At Charity Auction
Massive barn find auction with classic Lamborghinis, Porsches, Jaguars happening in France
A Lamborghini Miura, Porsche 356 and Jaguar E-Type are included.
How much would you be willing to pay for a 300cc Single?
Jawa is another classic bike brand which has been brought back from the dead in recent years. Last year, to great fanfare, the company broke away from its two stroke roots and announced a completely 300cc new four stroke engine. Three models, the Jawa, Jawa Forty Two, and the Perak have been announced, but are already sold out until November.
Although it might be impossible to get your hands on these bikes through traditional means, 13 bikes, with frame numbers ranging from 1 to 100 were put on auction in Mumbai for the Indian Armed Forces Flag Day Fund, a charity which provides education for the children of service personnel.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Nets $1.1 Million Winning Bid at Barrett-Jackson
VIN 001 of Ford's latest high-performance Mustang brings in a record amount for charity.
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.The Enfield Pegasus, Quite a looker!
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.
