  • PLEASE DON’T BUY ANYTHING FROM JAWA, YOU WILL ONLY SUFFER & GET DEPRESSED

    27 weeks ago


    Suman Dasthakur

    Guys, please don’t buy anything from Jawa, they will just forget you after the sale, the main struggle starts after buying. I bought Jawa 42 Bobber from Autotech in Howrah/West Bengal, they didn’t give me any proper papers, and they took 262k from me. I had an accident after some days, and they are denying to repair my bike, I gave them my bike in the middle of Sep, till now my bike is there, but they have done nothing, and also the insurance companies are their partner in crime, you will just loose your hard earned money, you will never get to ride your bike if anything happens, what I am suffering, I just don’t want somebody to face this situation, please choose some other brand who has values, they have no respect for their customers, please don’t waste your money on Jawa, you will see what happens if you have any type of issue with your bike, how they behave with you, you will only suffer after buying your bike, they will not solve any problem, they will only take your money then kick you out, will not give any service to you, a total waste of time and money, you will get depressed.

    Dr Rahul

    I've been using java 42 for more than 2yrs. I Rode 25k km till now. The bike is great look-wise l. Catches many eyes on the road. Very smooth ride compared to re. The major draw back which makes me give it 3 stars is service experience. They have only 2 service centers in a city like Mumbai. That too in the outskirts like thane/Bhandup. Never have I ever been satisfied with the work with such high service costs. Also, they do not provide spare parts so we can get the job done elsewhere. Don't know why this isn't acknowledged by the makers.

    Great bike with excellent performance. Great touring capabilities with extraordinary features and build quality, unique design and value for money with well fit and finish, nice looking instrument cluster and dual colour, tyre quality is worth, good braking performance, ease to ride on highway and city.

  • Power full bike with Heaty engine, and Hefty maintenance.

    17 weeks ago


    Ganesh S

    Delivery of the bike will happen in 4 days, as usual friendly salesperson. on the road the bike can easily clock to 80+, you won't realize it is in 100KMPH without looking at the speedometer. ride and control will be very easy.
    when you ride or in signal or parking all eyes will be on your bike only, the look and performance are awesome, and one can easily navigate the traffic just like gearless scooters.40KMPH in 2nd gear is possible.
    The service centre looks like a mechanic shed, In Chennai itself you have very few service centres,
    The bike is provided with a side stand only and no centre stand, so you cannot clean the chain by yourself, local mechanics are not aware of anything about this bike. engine heat is a headache in this bike and there is no proper guard provided for the silencer, easily burns your leg my raincoat pants got burned.
    the road clearance is very low, so why don't they think bout Indian roads and infra, you should be very careful when driving over the speed breaker.
    Pros:
    The looks of the bike, performance on the road, easily rideable design and weight.
    Cons:
    Heating problem, The toolbox is made up of plastic even an accident with a baby cycle will damage the toolbox door. Mileage is 20-23KMPL only that too if you ride below 60KMPH, otherwise it is less than an Alto.
    to summarize it is not a normal bike, it is something you have to maintain a lot, just like a super bike.

  • Good to ride

    15 weeks ago


    Bhanu

    Since I bought this bike till now there was no match with any other bike Looks good but we should know there are many difficulties with 2nd seat option in this bike. not a family bike only for the person who is happy with it in a single seat. Riding experience is very good.

  • Bobber 42

    1 year ago


    Harminder

    The showroom is excellent and well-located. The sales and service team is very cooperative. It's truly a bobber.
    There is no comparison of jawa perak. After a waiting period of two months, I got my bike. It's fantastic. There is no vibration and pickup. The power ( torque) is very good. Have a ride and feel itself and enjoy.

  • Different bike in india

    6 weeks ago


    Tapan Sharma

    I like it's looks
    That is seriously amazing 🫠
    + point
    1 looks 100% road presence.
    2 comfortable seats for short-height people
    - point
    1 ground clearance is very low
    2 uncomfortable for tall men at a long ride
    3 no luggage carry option
    JAVAN Bobber 42 bike has notable advantages. Firstly, its robust frame ensures durability, ideal for off-road adventures. The powerful 42cc engine delivers impressive speed and performance. Additionally, the comfortable seating enhances long rides. Its sleek design and vibrant colours contribute to a stylish appearance, attracting riders.
    However, there are drawbacks. The bike's weight might be a challenge for some, affecting manoeuvrability. Maintenance costs could be relatively high due to specialized parts. The fuel efficiency might not be optimal, impacting long-distance rides. The limited dealer network could pose challenges for spare parts availability, and the bike's price might be on the higher side compared to competitors.
    In conclusion, JAwa Bobar 42 offers a powerful and stylish riding experience, but potential downsides include weight, maintenance costs, fuel efficiency, limited dealer network, and pricing considerations.

    3 weeks ago


    Adarsh Kumar Verma

    This is the most affordable and good-looking cruiser in the segment. It gives the best mileage and its riding posture is awesome. Its exhaust sound is unbelievable. A dual silencer feels so soothing. The vibration of this bike is very low compared with other bikes. The price of this bike is a little bit higher in comparison with others.

    I've been using java 42 for more than 2yrs. I Rode 25k km till now. The bike is great look-wise l. Catches many eyes on the road. Very smooth ride compared to re. The major draw back which makes me give it 3 stars is service experience. They have only 2 service centers in a city like Mumbai. That too in the outskirts like thane/Bhandup. Never have I ever been satisfied with the work with such high service costs. Also, they do not provide spare parts so we can get the job done elsewhere. Don't know why this isn't acknowledged by the makers.

  • Power full bike with Heaty engine, and Hefty maintenance.

    17 weeks ago


    Ganesh S

    Delivery of the bike will happen in 4 days, as usual friendly salesperson. on the road the bike can easily clock to 80+, you won't realize it is in 100KMPH without looking at the speedometer. ride and control will be very easy.
    when you ride or in signal or parking all eyes will be on your bike only, the look and performance are awesome, and one can easily navigate the traffic just like gearless scooters.40KMPH in 2nd gear is possible.
    The service centre looks like a mechanic shed, In Chennai itself you have very few service centres,
    The bike is provided with a side stand only and no centre stand, so you cannot clean the chain by yourself, local mechanics are not aware of anything about this bike. engine heat is a headache in this bike and there is no proper guard provided for the silencer, easily burns your leg my raincoat pants got burned.
    the road clearance is very low, so why don't they think bout Indian roads and infra, you should be very careful when driving over the speed breaker.
    Pros:
    The looks of the bike, performance on the road, easily rideable design and weight.
    Cons:
    Heating problem, The toolbox is made up of plastic even an accident with a baby cycle will damage the toolbox door. Mileage is 20-23KMPL only that too if you ride below 60KMPH, otherwise it is less than an Alto.
    to summarize it is not a normal bike, it is something you have to maintain a lot, just like a super bike.

    Since I bought this bike till now there was no match with any other bike Looks good but we should know there are many difficulties with 2nd seat option in this bike. not a family bike only for the person who is happy with it in a single seat. Riding experience is very good.

    The showroom is excellent and well-located. The sales and service team is very cooperative. It's truly a bobber.
    There is no comparison of jawa perak. After a waiting period of two months, I got my bike. It's fantastic. There is no vibration and pickup. The power ( torque) is very good. Have a ride and feel itself and enjoy.

  • Different bike in india

    6 weeks ago


    Tapan Sharma

    I like it's looks
    That is seriously amazing 🫠
    + point
    1 looks 100% road presence.
    2 comfortable seats for short-height people
    - point
    1 ground clearance is very low
    2 uncomfortable for tall men at a long ride
    3 no luggage carry option
    JAVAN Bobber 42 bike has notable advantages. Firstly, its robust frame ensures durability, ideal for off-road adventures. The powerful 42cc engine delivers impressive speed and performance. Additionally, the comfortable seating enhances long rides. Its sleek design and vibrant colours contribute to a stylish appearance, attracting riders.
    However, there are drawbacks. The bike's weight might be a challenge for some, affecting manoeuvrability. Maintenance costs could be relatively high due to specialized parts. The fuel efficiency might not be optimal, impacting long-distance rides. The limited dealer network could pose challenges for spare parts availability, and the bike's price might be on the higher side compared to competitors.
    In conclusion, JAwa Bobar 42 offers a powerful and stylish riding experience, but potential downsides include weight, maintenance costs, fuel efficiency, limited dealer network, and pricing considerations.

    This is the most affordable and good-looking cruiser in the segment. It gives the best mileage and its riding posture is awesome. Its exhaust sound is unbelievable. A dual silencer feels so soothing. The vibration of this bike is very low compared with other bikes. The price of this bike is a little bit higher in comparison with others.

  • PLEASE DON’T BUY ANYTHING FROM JAWA, YOU WILL ONLY SUFFER & GET DEPRESSED

    27 weeks ago


    Suman Dasthakur

    Guys, please don’t buy anything from Jawa, they will just forget you after the sale, the main struggle starts after buying. I bought Jawa 42 Bobber from Autotech in Howrah/West Bengal, they didn’t give me any proper papers, and they took 262k from me. I had an accident after some days, and they are denying to repair my bike, I gave them my bike in the middle of Sep, till now my bike is there, but they have done nothing, and also the insurance companies are their partner in crime, you will just loose your hard earned money, you will never get to ride your bike if anything happens, what I am suffering, I just don’t want somebody to face this situation, please choose some other brand who has values, they have no respect for their customers, please don’t waste your money on Jawa, you will see what happens if you have any type of issue with your bike, how they behave with you, you will only suffer after buying your bike, they will not solve any problem, they will only take your money then kick you out, will not give any service to you, a total waste of time and money, you will get depressed.

  • Service error

    1 year ago


    Dr Rahul

    I've been using java 42 for more than 2yrs. I Rode 25k km till now. The bike is great look-wise l. Catches many eyes on the road. Very smooth ride compared to re. The major draw back which makes me give it 3 stars is service experience. They have only 2 service centers in a city like Mumbai. That too in the outskirts like thane/Bhandup. Never have I ever been satisfied with the work with such high service costs. Also, they do not provide spare parts so we can get the job done elsewhere. Don't know why this isn't acknowledged by the makers.
