The expected Jawa RVR500 is just a rebranding of the Bristol Veloce 500 / Motonews / BikePost
Indian manufacturer Jawa plans to expand the range and release the largest motorcycle. At the moment, the company only produces small-sized motorcycles in a retro style, but recently the new motorcycle was lit up in tests. It is made in neo retro nude style and, apparently, is just a rebranding of the Bristol Veloce 500.
The Bristol Veloce 500 has a distinct neo retro design and is assembled and sold in the Philippines, although most of the components are made in China. Jawa’s management apparently considered and decided that it was cheaper to buy a production license than to develop a new motorcycle.
The Jawa RVR500 spec won’t differ much from the Bristol Veloce 500 motorcycle, which is inspired by the Honda CB650R. The Veloce 500 is equipped with a 471cc twin-cylinder engine. Structurally, the engine has a lot in common with the Honda CB500. The unit develops 47 hp. Cooling: liquid. Power system: injector. The torque is transmitted to the rear wheel through a six-speed gearbox.
The Jawa RVR500 is expected to premiere before the end of 2021. The Bristol Veloce 500 costs about $ 7,100 in the Philippines, but in India the price tag can be significantly lower.
