Now, we won't get into the styling bit in detail, but we will say this - not only is it true to the original, the new Jawa actually looks quite good in the flesh. The proportions are good; there's authenticity in the details; and that chrome on the tank, actually looks tasteful.
But, overall, the quality could have been better. Some welds, rubber bits, and wiring at places look cheap and untidy. The instrumentation too, could have been better designed.
The reverse sweep for the needle, the old fonts for the numbering, and the round layout, all add to that old-school feel, yes. But, there's no reason why one shouldn't be able to read where the speedo is pointed while on the move. Or, why Jawa has skimmed by not offering a trip meter.
