I don't think they would sell well in the USA. They'd sell some, but not enough to justify it. Rather than mainly transportation and commuting like in Asian countries, cycling here is mostly for pleasure. There's nothing exciting about these, unless you owned one years ago and like the nostalgia. Even if only the name is the same as those bike of years ago. It's sort of like Royal Enfield. Except RE has longevity in the market going for it.

I like the Maroon one since it looks like the original color of the 350 California twin JAWA:smile_big:

I raced a Jawa CZ 250 in the southern California desert for years as my brother did with his CZ 400 and let me tell ya, they were built as solid as a tank, with STEEL used instead of 'Pot-metal,' like the JAP bikes and they were very reliable---once the carb, I believe it was called a 'Jikov,' was replaced by the faithful Mikuni:grin:

The trouble here though is a lack of a dealer network!:surprise:
