Royal Enfield Bullet, Jawa, Yezdi, Yamaha RD 350, old BSAs were the favorite motorcycles of a bygone generation.Now in the 21 century, except Royal Enfield Bullets, all other bikes have disappeared. Since bikes like RD 350, Yezdi had two-stroke engines with large displacement which made them consume a lot of fuel. But the Royal Enfield's imperious comeback made Mahindra, the Indian four-wheeler brand sit up and take notice. In the latest move, they have completely bought both Jawa as well as BSA, the brands which are now dead in India. Mahindra, via Classic Legends, has signed an ‘exclusive brand licensing agreement’ with the Czechoslovakian bike maker, Jawa. Mahindra has not only bought Jawa but also announced that they will revive the brand in India. Jawa's return is going to be a good move as it can turn the tables in favor of the ailing Mahindra two-wheeler business.
