Rabindra Dhungel, 7 october 2020. Bookings for Java bikes were opened in India a year ago. There was a lot of booking of bikes made targeting the youth.
Mahindra’s subsidiary Classic Segment claimed that Java and Java-42 bikes have been booked for sale by September 2019. The company claimed to have sold 90,000 bikes that year. In 2018, Java was the most searched item in the bike segment on Google.
Java bikes, which have already made a good market share in the large capacity bike segment, will start selling in Nepal before the 10th. This bike will be sold by Agni Moto Inc., the official dealer of Mahindra vehicles in Nepal.
The company is building a state-of-the-art showroom at the North Gate of Kathmandu for the sale of bikes. This bike will hit the Royal Infield hard.
The single-cylinder Java 42 single-disc BS6 has a four-stroke connection, a liquid total engine and a dual overhead cam. The bike has a maximum transmission capacity of 26.21 PS and has a manual transmission. With front disc and rear drum brakes, the bike is equipped with a single channel anti-lock braking system. The market value of Java is Rs 600,000.
The Royal Infield’s Bullet 350 ABS BS6 has the same cylinder and stroke, but it has air-cooled fuel injectors. Agni Moto Inc. claims that Java is relatively powerful. The Java bike has the ability to maintain 20.7 PS of power flow at 5250 revolutions per minute (rpm). This is just a kick start.
The price of Royal Infield is Rs 515,000. Ashish Singh Joshi, chief executive officer of Classic Legends, said that there are many consumers of classic bikes in Nepal, adding that sales of Java and Java-42 will start. Agni Group Managing Director Cabinet Shrestha said that he was excited to bring the classic bike and said that he was optimistic about the iconic brand Java.
According to him, the legendary classic of New Java still looks trendy and its strong construction feature is believed to be preferred by Nepali consumers. The bike will be brought to Nepal with Completely Built Unit (CBU) technology and will be sold in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Itahari, Dharan, Narayanghat, Lahan, Nepalgunj and Butwal.
