    Great bike with superb handling dual and abs model. Ground clearance is low if you have the main stand otherwise ground clearance is decent. Braking is confident aspiring in dual abs model.

    It took near about a month to deliver the bike. Riding experience is good. Took it to 2 tour where distance is near about 450 to 500 km. Regarding the performance, there is no issue when it comes for long ride but the engine gets too hot in the busy road where we need to shift gear. Spare parts are not easily available. Need to purchase that from showroom. Start is a problem for this bike. Engine gets shut down quite often in busy road.
    Major draw back, it has not tubeless tires and there is issue with rusting.
    Over all performance is very good. Easy ride for long trip.

    Jawa bike looks like a standard which make you feel like royal and the sound of this bike is very good which makes people attract to its sound.But seat is not comfortable because it is too small for healthy people sound and have very brilliant colours which looks very good.The bike maintains it uniqueness as well as modernness .Thank you.

    Riders who want classic look while are not a fan of chrome will be interested in this urban commuter kinda bike with a little modern touch .It gets a flatter set of handlebars for a sportier riding stance. It gets an offset instrument console and a round halogen headlamp. I think this bike will emerge as a new package for cruiser bike lovers in India.

    Pros : superb engine, eye catcher looks, latest features, braking system. Cons : seat is very hard, long waiting period, fuel gauge is not up to mark. I have galactic green jawa 42 and it's doing great till now and I hope so in future. One thing I should tell that seat is really hard and you need to go for customization. This should be taken care by classic legends in their upcoming motorcycles.

2019 Jawa Forty-Two First Ride Review

14 December 2018
Vikrant Singh

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...
