Anupam Thareja, Founder, Classic Legends and Founder and Managing Partner, Phi Capital along with Ashish Joshi, Chief Executive Officer, Classic Legends inaugurated the showrooms, amidst a throng of Jawa aficionados and customers.
Speaking at the inauguration, Thareja, said, “It gives me great pride to inaugurate Classic Legends’ Jawa Motorcycles dealerships in Delhi-NCR. Jawa Motorcycles has enjoyed a huge fan following throughout and it was a historic moment for us when we brought Jawa back in India last month. We are quite upbeat to offer these classics to the motorcycle enthusiasts in the country. As a custodian of the JAWA brand, it is my obligation on behalf of the entire Jawa team to make sure every Jawa dealer goes out and changes the way classic motorcycles should be sold to the future riding generation. It is very important to us at the JAWA team to make sure every dealer becomes a strong pillar of our growth and it is our promise that we stand fully behind them, now and always. They trusted us on the brand value of JAWA alone, before even seeing the products or knowing about the pricing of the motorcycles. It was their confidence in us that allowed us to build the JAWA showrooms the way you see it today. We will not leave any stone unturned in providing our customers with the best of the sales, service and spares ecosystem.”
Joshi pointed out: “This was the right timing to have come up with this range of motorcycles, as the Indian premium motorcycle market is not only growing but also evolving in consumer tastes and preferences. With the opening of our dealerships we are excited that the products are finally into the hands of the fans of Jawa. We also had a very encouraging media test ride session a few days ago and are glad that the feedback has been so positive. Finally, all the effort on design, engineering and engine platform has come to bear fruit in the way we had planned it. The faith placed by Jawa customers, aficionados and our dealer partners is helping us create a vast dealership network which will offer an un-paralleled customer experience with best in-class sales and service offering for any classic motorcycle brand out there. We are excited that we have already taken the right step forward in building this experience by announcing an industry-first exchange programme and the largest number of financial tie ups. I would encourage everyone to visit our dealers and look at the motorcycles, test ride them to feel the modern classics we have created.”
