About 42

Jawa 42 is a cruiser bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,63,083 in India. It is available in 2 variants and 6 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 1,72,029. The 42 is powered by 293cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 27 bhp and a torque of 27.05 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Jawa 42 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This 42 bike weighs 172 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14 liters.

The Jawa Forty Two is the entry-level model to the Jawa brand. It shares its mechanicals with the Jawa Standard, but has a few cosmetic differences – it is the more modern-looking of the two. You get more colours, you get a digital odometer and tripmeters, blacked-out bar-end mirrors, and a black handlebar. There is very little chrome present on this model, although it retains spoke rims.

The Jawa Forty Two is powered by a BS6-compliant, 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid cooled engine. It generates 27bhp and 28Nm and has a six-speed gearbox. The motor runs on conventional telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers. There is a 280mm disc brake at the front, with a 153mm drum for the rear. Single-channel ABS is standard.

The Forty Two is available in six colours – dark blue, blue, teal (which is a light blue), red, lime green, and dark green. It is priced at Rs 1.55 lakhs onward and competes with the Royal Enfield Classic 350, Thunderbird 350 and Thunderbird 350X.
