    I absolutely love this machine. It is absolutely a fantastic bike. No issue with the bike for me at all. Just go to your nearest showroom and take a test ride, I promise you, that you will absolutely love this machine, it was the best looking bike in 300-400 category segment and it gives a direct competition to it's rivals.

    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...!

    1 - i can say, its ok with buying experience 2 - riding wise its very good, only reason i give rating for it 3 - its not worth of cost, material used in it is not good. Its getting rust where as i used a bike for 17 years no which i dint seen such rust issues. When we are paying such huge amount why manufacture is getting compromise on there metal they using.4 - its ok 5 - i don't suggest others to buy it, as we are paying huge amount and jawa manufacturer is not giving good material.

    The buying experience is pretty concise. I have ordered this bike (jawa 42-dual abs) on the 23rd of january and i was contacted for the delivery on the 6th of february. The registration took 2 hours and the first time riding experience makes you feel like you were riding a leopard.The bike takes time to get habituated as the ground clearance is pretty low, it takes at least 2 weeks to subconsciously ride without hitting the ground. But once you get habituated, the riding experience is pretty awesome as it produces enough power to feel the bike to its utmost. The seats are pretty uncomfortable and stiff and some might need to change the seats for better comfy.It stands out in traffic and i was stopped it peak traffics on the roads of hyderabad, just to be inquired about the price and performance. The gloss paint of nebula blue is amazing but needs a lot of care and maintenance as it is prone to scratches. Avoid placing luggage on the petrol tank, as it is the most vulnerable place to be put.The servicing costs less than 2000 for the first servicing and needs to be done on time.Pros:Mileage is as claimed. Looks Power Braking is perfect. Cons:Heats up near ankles, Prone to scratches Loose side mirrors (in my bike, at least)Lesser accessories to buy. Hard seats, The fuel meter is pretty inaccurate.

    Bought Jawa 42 three months ago. Very good engine. Best bike for long rides and city commute. Ground clearance is an issue when pillion is there. Mileage is between 25-30 kmpl. Only once I got 37kmpl when I did a solo long ride. Seat is very hard, fuel meter doesn't work properly, rusting is there. The paint on the body parts is chipping off.

    Took a test drive and it was amazing. The competition of re and all is only notional, given the handling and the acceleration. Sleek yet sturdy, just the right height and wonderful colours - a modern classic. Rode on yezdi classic d-250, yezdi cl-ii, road king and the monarch. The same feel - 310 kms in 4.5 hours flat with two tea breaks in between, was my routine.
