    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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...
