    It is more than a bike. I named it as my time machine because of the pickup speed and power. it's cruises me on the road like travelling forward in time while other vehicle travelling backwards or slowly. Experience from my view. Even look of the bike is more sexier than other classic bikes expect Harley and triumph. Pride to own one!

    I'm writing this review after a month of riding my new Jawa, I have completed 1000km in first 3 week's, my overall experience was good, I travelled around 300km long trip which covers highway & normal roads, the journey was smooth, and I'm so happy with the engine side,...
    I'm writing this review after a month of riding my new Jawa, I have completed 1000km in first 3 week's, my overall experience was good, I travelled around 300km long trip which covers highway & normal roads, the journey was smooth, and I'm so happy with the engine side, I touched to 100kmph and 90kmph maximum time and there was no change in engine sound or I didn't noticed any vibrations from engine, for which I felt happy. Because previously I used royal Enfield classic 350 and I got irritated with the engine vibrations especially when it crosses 70kmph to 80kmph. Coming to appearance it looks great with powerful 300cc engine and especially that coolant attached to engine gives more powerful look. Coming to handling, I'm feeling more comfortable to handle my Jawa as it was less in weight. One more advantage is the bike's suspension, in what ever speed you ride and if we have to move it through potholes, we won't feel any inconvenience or back pain due to great suspension. And coming to seating, the seat may be little hard to sit ,but it was comfortable to ride without any issues, as it fits our exact seating position, matching the fuel tank. Till now I didn't took my bike for servicing, so I'm unable to write my experience about servicing. But coming to maintenance, the main disadvantage is, it was taking more fuel, and to be frank I'm not getting at least 30km per liter, I think this was mainly due to using my Bike for daily commute, where I'll hardly ride 40km per day for office purpose and always used to change the gears frequently in this traffic and road also very bad. And one more disadvantage is less ground clearance, I'm very much disappointed with this, before purchasing this bike .I went through hundreds of reviews on different sites and no one mentioned about less ground clearance(may be they never experienced it, or using their vehicle on highway I think !), it's so sad, when ever if we cross any speed breaker or if we travel on village roads with potholes, mainly both silencers and bottom of the engine will touch the ground if we ride the bike with minimum speed, and I've experienced it many times and I've slowing down the bike where ever I'm facing potholes or speed breakers to save it from touching the ground and protecting it. And finally in my opinion one can opt for Jawa 42,if they don't have problem with "less mileage" and "less ground clearance" the bike was overall good, and gives nice riding experience, but it looks small in size when compared to other variants in the same price, but easy to handle. It's up to you to decide!

    I want to own this bike as soon as possible I am big fan of cruisers jawa is simply better than royal enfield in all aspects. It speed ,torque better than royal enfield even though it is 299 cc. It looks amazing as bike of cost 10 lakhs It was a super bike at that cost I think in a few days it will become the top bike and better than royal enfield if servicing was good. Simply superb bike at that cost under 2 lakhs no bike is better than this...!

    The legend is back with bang...I am telling you guys it's makkhan.. Great riding experience. Latest technologies implemented. I have taken the test ride of jawa 42 and thunderbird on same day.. my observation -Sitting position is good in both bike. Jawa 42 is like sports comfort and 350x more towards cruise comfort.There is so much vibration in 350x.. In the speed of 50 to 60 km But no vibration at all upto 100km in jawa. Riding control is altimate in jawa compared to 350x. So if i would choose between jawa and 350x i will definitely go for jawa as its is more value for money in the same segment. Its my hard earned money so i will invest in some more value for money product. I am not royal enfield hater. Its a indian brand and i am proud of it but as i am comparing two bike i have to choose best one. So finally i booked java over royal enfield.

This is the more affordable, younger-looking, and as its maker likes to say, open-chested version of the Jawa. It shares the engine, gearbox, cycle parts, and, in fact, almost all of its body work with the standard Jawa. We have already ridden and written about the new Jawa...
