About 42

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 293cc single-cylinder liquid cooled engine that generates 27bhp and 28Nm. It has a six-speed gearbox. It 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 fetching 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 range, the Thunderbird 350 and 350X, and the UM Motorcycle range.

    Had to wait for 6 months to get delivery. Riding experience and performance are great, it's a perfect blend of a modern and retro look. The sales team experience differs from area to area, they are minor issues here and there due and since the company is new, strict pol
