    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 policies are not present because of which dealers have the leverage to make certain decisions. Maintenance is must and taking good care of it will go a long way.Not much to debate because the other option (royal enfield) is not that great, it has a lot of vibration and results in fatigue especially for slim people.

    1.Buying experience- still not available to buy,but excited to buy jawa forty two 2.Riding experience- old jawa motorcycles are fun to ride, suits our Indian roads, i'd ride jawa yezdi which gives joyful experience, and that jawa sound makes heads turn out in public places which gives nice feeling..!!3.Look & performance- here is no question about classic look, i think there was only re bikes are previously there in Indian market which has classic looks and styling so re bikes has not any competitors but now the legend is again back in India with more power than re bikes!!*power- 27 ps is absolutely greater power than the re 350 range bikes also jawa's 293 cc engine make tough competition with re 500 range that's amazing.. Re has only one point to win ie torque and only 500cc re can win bcoz they have 42 nm of torque. But here is no chances of re 350 to win against the legend jawa*weight- re bikes are usually over weight and that's why there is always fear to cross the speed limit and to maintain in the city traffic, but jawa bikes are 170kg which are less as compare to the re. 4 servicing cost and maintenance- jawa bikes have little more maintenance cost bcoz after long time they were launched and this is 1st generation so it is need to be more refined or tuned, i think there may be initially mileage of bike will be less as expected but later it will be fixed that is no worrying bcoz its 1st generation* pros- 1.Best bike in 1.5 price range. 2.Better power as compare to re 350 series. 3.Better cruising capability. 4.Jawa forty two classic with modern looks??*cons- 1.No disc brakes in rear. 2.No daylight running light.

    Waiting.. Finally, after waiting for 22 years, jawa has returned. The classic fun roadster, which left our shores back in 1996, makes a grand debut in India. Yes, it gets a few upgrades like disc brakes, abs, bs-6 engine and modern suspension. However, the layout and design work remains true to the gills.

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...
