Jawa 500cc adventure and touring motorcycle unveiled!
– The Jawa RVM 500 adventure-tourer makes its debut
– Powered by a 471cc parallel-twin engine
– Unlikely to launch in India
Images of a Jawa-branded jammer have recently caused a stir on the internet. And now an adventure motorcycle, called Jawa RVM 500 has been revealed. And just like the scrambler, this bike is based on a Bristol model – the Venturi 500 to be precise.
It sports typical ADV styling with a “beak,” large fuel tank, and split windshield and seats that appear well-cushioned. The Jawa RVM 500 also sports a bumper, skid plate and knuckle guards along with a rear rack as standard equipment. In our opinion, the styling looks like a combination of the Benelli TRK 502 and the BMW G310 GS.
The adventure touring motorcycle is powered by a 471cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine similar to the Jawa scrambler. This engine is capable of producing 47 hp at 8,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 43 Nm at 6,500 rpm. As far as hardware goes, the Jawa RVM 500 rides on spoked wheels; 18-inch front and 16-inch rear, shod with dual-sport tires sourced from Metzeler.
Suspension is handled by inverted forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear, while braking is handled by dual discs up front and single disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS. Other features include a semi-digital dashboard and USB charging as standard.
Now, it is important to note that the Jawa RVM 500 has no connection with the Mahindra-owned Jawa motorcycles that sell the Jawa, Forty-Two and Perak in India. Rather, it is branded as the original Jawa from the Czech Republic. The company appears to have an agreement with Bristol, a Philippines-based bicycle manufacturer for its latest models. Therefore, it is unlikely that this adventure motorcycle will be launched in our country soon.
