The Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd, a lifestyle start-up, formed in 2015 developed the engine in association with one of the world’s leading engine specialist at the technical centre in Varese, Italy.

Besides the aspects of aesthetics and power delivery, the thing which was on priority was the exhaust note, unique as of the old Jawa. it was challenging of all, to create the tone of a classic 2-stroke on a modern day 4-stroke engine. Albeit, with the support of a maverick team of sound engineers in Italy, they managed to get the sound complementing to the sound of the old Jawa. However, they have to go through a number of experiments with countless harmonic pipes and multiple permutations.

Overall, the challenge was of creating an engine with a reminiscent sameness and a futuristic one at the same time. Good thing, it is already compatible with the BS6 emission norms.
