The people of Punjab have an emotional connect with the Jawa brand and we want to celebrate the intertwined legacies of Jawa and Punjab. Every Jawa ride is a “Ride to give back” and this will be no exception. From the armed forces to SOS villages in Punjab we will be giving back to as we ride along.”

Punjab da Tor aims to spread awareness about the legacy of the Jawa brand in Punjab, which has a long riding tradition, and where Jawa and Yezdi names have a deep resonance with the people. During the years when Jawa was absent, an enthusiastic riding clubs and ‘Jawa Kommunity’ in Punjab kept the brand and its legacy alive. The Ride is also aimed at reconnecting with these riders and celebrating Jawa’s unique and abiding appeal in Punjab.

 

The Punjab Ride will witness participation from celebrated Punjabi folk singer Rabbi Shergill and actress, avid biker and former Miss India Gul Panag, among others. The Punjab Ride will also include performances by renowned singers like Parmeesh Verma, B Praak and the legendary Gurdas Maan, who will enthrall the audiences through live concerts in Ludhiana, Jalandhar and finale in Chandigarh respectively.

Jawa and the armed forces:
Jawa has always had a strong and emotional connect with the armed forces. Jawa Motorcycles always believed in contributing to the armed forces in its own ways – from fundraisers to building awareness about the sacrifices made by the forces to recreating magic of 1971 Hells Angels – Jawa has always stepped up. Under the Forever Heroes initiative fundraiser, Jawa raised Rs 1.49 crore by auctioning 13 Jawa motorcycles from its first production batch. The amount was handed over to Armed Forces Flag Day Fund to be utilised towards the education of children of martyrs of Indian Armed Forces. At the event held in Manekshaw Center, were a special group of retired officers called the Hell’s Angels. The four former Indian Air Force officers, who were part of a 5-member team from the 1971 Indo-Pak war owned the original classic Jawas back in the day. This group of five IAF pilots were part of the same squadron in 1971 and there’s a photograph of the five sitting on their Jawa bikes. Jawa recreated the same moment and invited the four members to the ceremony who recreated the same moment by sitting on the new Jawa bikes, as they did in the Bareilly airbase. A helmet was kept on the fifth bike in remembrance of the fifth deceased officer.

During the Ibex Trail 2019 Jawa had undertaken initiatives of giving back to the community and supported the War Heroes Colony for the completion of Martyrs’ Community Hall. War hero Colonel Sonam Wangchuk MVC, who led a column in 1999 as a part of Op VIJAY in the Batalik Sector to occupy Ridge Line at a height of about 5,500 m so as to pre-empt its occupation by enemy and infiltration joined us on the Ibex Trail.
