Recognizing the bravery shown by pointsman Mayur Shelke who saved the life of a child, Jawa Motorcycles decided to gift him with a Jawa bike.
As part of the Jawa Heroes initiative, the Czech brand has gifted Shelke a Jawa Forty Two bike.
“We were honored to meet Pointsman Mayur Shelke at his residence and hand over the Jawa forty two Golden Stripes Nebula Blue as appreciation for his selfless bravery as part of the Jawa Heroes initiative. More power to you Mayur and loads of respect from the Jawa family,” Jawa Motorcycles tweeted.
