    I got jawa in 3 days. Before getting delivered check the first aid kit and tool kit. It's missing on my bike. The riding experience is good. I have traveled 250 kms on my first ride. Good pickup. No back pain issues for my height. Initially, you feeling heating near to your foot. Later it will cool down. Coolant works fine. Ground clearance. You might feel that center stand is hitting to the ground while crossing the humps.

    well I don't brag about brand or Name, I simply love bikes I don't care what name it got. this bike is cool looking bike and in my village I am the only one got it. road presence is great. when you buy this motor cycle please keep in mind the problems you face and of-course you can make negatives about any bike there it is in this world. if you are ok with it and if you can deal with it then you can buy any bike. let's go into the problems you will face.
    cons:
    (1) when you buy this bike please do the first service as soon as possible because there may be clutch wire or throttle problem which will stop the bike in the middle of the traffic. ( it's not your raiding style which will make the bike to stop). (2) paint quality is not great you will get scratches so easy, so you have to do lamination or ceramic coating as soon as you buy it. (3) change the seat cushion(not the entire design) immediately when you buy, if you don't you will definitely have your butt on fire after 150km straight ride. and also add simple (not heavy looking)crash guard and back rest. (4) use chain cleaner and lube otherwise chain will get noisy. (5) ground clearance is not going to be a problem as per me but go slow when you are raiding with pillion
    (6) service should be normal as per requirements I got bill for 1727/- and 1750 for first two services and a break pad for 390/-
    pros: I won't tell you pros because I love this bike not because it's jawa or something. but it got good performance, looks, build quality and mileage as well. mileage is around 37 to 40 for me. but before first service I got 34.5 something'
    well should you buy it?????
    you should select which bike suits you and which bike you can handle as per your taste, height, your requirements, where you ride it (touring, off road, on road, commuter, sports, naked sports, high performance) etc. but if you like bikes buy any bike and deal with its maintenance and cons.
    happy raiding bros and sis. peace out.

    The bike looks good. Has road presence. But fails to deliver in terms of performance. It stops on the run on l;ow gears..No one knows why. The service engineers have not been able to figure out yet. The only option left is to escalate it to company and seek a replacement. Besides this there are other issues which can be ignored. The one i am dealing with poses threat to life.

    I am owning jawa for past 1 month. Bike is good looking and best performance. Everything looked good for past one month. But now it started several problems. The bike stops suddenly while riding that too at 3 or 4 gear. I tried to start, but it stopped again and again. I had to push for more than 5 km. There's no customer service, service center or road side assistance available after 6pm. Only option you are left with is to push the vehicle. I sent a email and got after a day. They committed to send people to check. But no body turned. I had to keep calling them multiple times. They say due to high number of complaints they cannot send people for next 3 days. The service center people are demanding money first for even coming to check. Next is rusting problem. They said they will replace it too. Next is discomfort during riding. Seat is so stiff. Your backbone will be on risk if you drive for longer distance.I have never seen such a worst vehicle. Soon jawa will have to shutdown. I am neither a great fan of re who is simply blaming jawa. I think people are buying just because of good look and the legendary name. Please avoid this vehicle. I am not the only customer who's facing the problem. You should go to service center before showroom. You will see so many vehicles there due to customer complaint.

    1.Buying experience was not that good as i waited for long long time after booking 2. Riding you can't just imagine it's so smooth and impressive like there is no vibration issue, no ground clearance issue the motor pulls very nicely and gear box is smooth shifting it feel so punchy. Performance is nice as it produces 27 horsepower, breaking performance is really good. Taking u turn in bike is no issue. Overall riding experience in city was so good for me3. It is a beauty bike, front mudguard is smaller, 280mm front disc, headlight is not joined to handle bar, lever is decent and jawa is written in handgrip, engine is a piece of art it look so beautiful , twin exhaust pipes, we get back rest and space for luggage at back and tail light is too small, 18 inch front tire and 17 inch back tire, seat is hard and slim but very good for long trip as smooth seat i won't recommend for long ride, tank look beautiful, both the side space kit we get, even though it look heavy it is very light, there is a fuel meter, speedometer and odometer. Horn is loud and jawa 42 sound really nice once u start it. Over all the jawa 42 motorcycle is good and for me top speed is 120. After first service i got 39 kmpl, first service is after 1000 kilometer o after 3 months as per me the cost is not too much... Pro- The name jawa is a legendary as someone see and take a attention on it as people as stopped me to ask about new jawa The attractive and beautiful looks, most people liked it and praised in front of me. Specifications as u get liquid cool engine in 290cc so if u even ride for 8 to 10 hours there won't be any heating issue and the power and torque it produce is really one of the reason to recommend it. Easy handling has it is lightweight and it is very easy to ride in cities Low seating is one plus point because even if u lose control while stopping u can easily lift it up backCons-Ground clearance is little less when you wanted to ride in mounted area. Add on accessories is more, you don't get much with this motorbike, you don't get scratch guard and central stand with it, ladies side footrest you need to buy and also back rest and few many thingsHorn is loud but not good as it make sound like some moped.

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...
