    Jawa is like jaws now a days... Time to say goodby re... Because no upgradation in engines... Jawa delivers more power than re. They both are old schools friends but jawa understands customer needs and re didn't that's why re customer goes to modification. Customer is smart enough to what i am get in the end... When re delivers 19.8 bhp power in 349 cc then jawa delivers 27 bhp power in 293 cc. Same mileage ,almost same budget. So why take take re??

    This bike looks amazing and it is a retro one so it will be eye catching on the roads. Everyone knows about the old Jawa it was so reliable. Hope the new one will be also reliable as the old one. The pricing of the bike is good as my view. And those who wants to own an big bike but don't like the Royal Enfield they are definitely going to own this. It is going to give a serious competition to Royal classic 350 and thunderbird 350x. Looking at the seats of java I must say it going to give you a smooth ride feeling. Buy this bike only if the service is available in your city. There is a lot of good thing to talk about this bike but the bad thing is it doesn't provide a rear disc although it is a single channel abs bike but still rear disk is important one. Hope it will upgrade the brakes.

2019 Jawa Forty-Two First Ride Review

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...
