One of the major attraction towards the Jawa is its classic looks. The designers have maintained most of the design elements from the original bike yet have been able to give it a modern touch. Even the engine has been designed to look similar to the older one yet is packed with modern day technology.

The Jawa features a round fuel tank finish in dual-tone with chrome. The bike retains the classic design features such as the shape of the headlamp nacelle with integrated speedometer, toolbox cover and large fenders. It even features the iconic cigar shaped exhaust we have seen on the original model.
