Powerful cruiser for short riders

4 months ago by Sakhil Malik781 views

I love riding the bike as it's the only cruiser bike available in India for short riders with two exhausts, vibrant colours, great looks and yes all this with a powerful engine. Above all it comes at a very competitive and unbeatable price which makes it distinctive.
It's quite stable and smooth at a high speed with all comfort to both rider and pillion rider.

    Plenty has been written about the way this bike looks. This isn't a motorcycle it's a lemon!!
    The bike started giving me problems right from the day I bought it. It stalled on numerous occasions while I was riding it just after delivery!! the local dealership and its service center are downright pathetic. Have to take the bike for service every Saturday!! every time one problem is solved two more crop up. It stalls at high speeds, racer jams within a short span, chain squeaks after riding 50 odd kms..Etc. Etc. It's a bouquet of issues. Request people to not buy this half-baked product.

    Buying experience was good
    First and foremost build quality must be improved like speedometer and indicators don't work effectively and efficiently. Ground clearance is not good, even on a small height bumps the exhaust pipe hits the ground. Being and reputed brand these two features should have been considered
    Pillion rider with medium height cannot sit for long distance as the height fro seat to the foot rest is very less. This causes knee pain in long drives.
    Driving experience on long drive is good. Smooth for rider. Ergonomics for rider is good . But not for pillion rider.
    Overall in my opinion Honda's new 350cc bike is much better option than jawa 42 and re.

2021 Jawa 42 Version 2.1: First Ride Review

12 February 2021

The 42 is more popular because well it’s not stuck in the past like the beautiful but old school Classic Jawa. And to build on this popularity Classic Legends, the company, has introduced the Version 2.1.

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...
