Deliveries Of Jawa Perak To Start From July 20.



Classic Legends has announced that it started the deliveries of the Perak from the 20th of July across the length and breadth of the country.

The Perak is a motorcycle reminiscing the past, yet far ahead of its time. Designed and developed as a factory custom embodying the spirit of ‘Stealth, Vigilante and Dark’, the BSVI compliant machine is a true bobber in spirit and form with ‘bobbed’ fenders, chopped exhaust, and a floating seat.

The bookings for the motorcycle began on January 1, 2020, and now, over half a year later, the deliveries of the motorcycle have commenced. However, the motorcycle that is being delivered is now BS-VI emission norm compliant as that became mandatory from April 1, 2020.

The Jawa Perak is powered by a 334cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 30.64 PS of power and 32.74 Nm of torque and comes with a 6-speed transmission. Thanks to the BS-VI update, Jawa has worked on the engine and they have not only made the engine meet a stricter emission norm but have also managed to extract almost 2 Nm of torque more than before.

Other updates on the Jawa Perak include a completely reworked chassis with an all-new swingarm, both which, have had their stiffness levels tuned for more straight-line stability and planted cornering, as claimed by Jawa.

Anupam Thareja, co-founder, Classic Legends said, “When we set out to build the Perak, the goal was simple – to create a motorcycle with the right blend of exclusivity, individuality and performance, with a hint of sinister and dark. Built on the idea of India’s first factory custom, the Perak is just that and now it is out on its prowl.”

The Jawa Perak was launched in India on November 15th 2019 and the bookings for the motorcycle began on January 1, 2020. The motorcycle is priced at Rs 1,94,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

To help bikers give in to temptation more easily, the Jawa Perak is also available with a range of easy finance options.Classic Legends has put in place a comprehensive standard operating procedure across its sales outlets and the dealerships have been adhering to the policies and measures directed by the Central and State governments with respect to the safety of customers, employees, and visitors. The showrooms are functional with teams trained and equipped to follow social distancing, hygiene, and sanitation protocols.

Due to Global oil prices fall Diesel cheaper by 63 paise.



Oil companies have reduced diesel prices by 63 paise per litre (8.33%) since September 2, bringing down its rate to Rs 72.93 on Saturday in Delhi as international crude oil prices softened over 10% during the period because of a rise in the global stockpile and weak demand. Petrol rates have been cut by 22 paise a litre that brought down its retail price to Rs 81.86 in Delhi on Saturday.

The difference in quantum of decline in pump prices of petrol and diesel is mainly because their rates are aligned with respective international benchmarks that often do not move synchronously, two executives working for different state-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) said, requesting anonymity.

State-run fuel retailers revise pump prices of auto fuels daily based on fluctuations in their international benchmark rates. India’s fuel retail market is dominated by three state-run OMCs – Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL). They have almost 90% market share.

Benchmark Brent crude fell $39.83 a barrel on Friday because of weak demand. It slipped below $40 a barrel for the first time since June 15. Reuters reported on Saturday that the US stock markets ended lower for a second week following several economic indicators that suggest a long and difficult recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

One of the executives cited above said the falling international oil prices also helped state-run OMCs in reducing retail prices of subsidized kerosene sold through the public distribution system (PDS).

The retail selling price of PDS kerosene was reduced by Rs 0.69 per litre in Kolkata. There was a corresponding reduction in prices in other cities effectively from September 1, the executive said.

“This decrease is due to a drop in product prices in the international market and the strengthening of the rupee-dollar exchange rate,” he said. With this revision, the retail price of PDS kerosene was reduced from Rs 28.66 per litre in August to Rs 27.97 in September in Kolkata, he added.

Public sector oil companies revise kerosene rates every month.

The rupee-dollar exchange rate has a significant bearing on domestic fuel rates as India imports more than 80% of crude oil it processes and pays in dollars. Every dollar per barrel drop in crude prices reduces India’s import bill by Rs 10,700 crore on an annual basis.

According to the oil ministry’s data keeper, Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell, the exchange rate fell to Rs 73.35 a dollar on September 11 compared to Rs 74.77 on August 3.
