Old Dog, New Tricks

Another new machine for Saturday morning was this Belgian registered Jawa 660 Sportard.

If you're at all familiar with Jawa motorcycles then this is not the first thing that comes to mind when you mention their name.

While looking over the bike the owner came over to talk to us. It turns out that he is the importer for Belgium. This particular machine is powered by a Minnerelli/Yamaha engine. There is a fairly decent review here and also a link to Jawa Ireland who actually sell them.

He did say that there are plans for a 1000cc machine in the future featuring Jawa's own engine.


  1. Good blog Mike

    Went to the link and it doesn't say a lot about performance but those of us who own a Skorpion know about that. Would be interested to know what the output of the lights are ie are they 55/60 and not a bank of 35w. I caught that remark about the 1000cc as well, must admit I'd be interested in a 1000cc parallel twin in a quirky individual package. Also Mike agree with your comment at Tea Room the first thing you look at is the badge but look where Skoda are now.


    1. I do wonder if that is where MZs 1000cc engine went. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

  2. Also available in the the UK from the UK importer.
