Engine light appears at every 100 to 150 km

6 days ago by Karan263 views

The riding and performance of the bike are good
But in 3 months bike visit the showroom more than three times for engine light
Jawa workers resolve the problem and it comes back in travel of 100 to 150 km
They change the parts which are damaged
The exhaust is not equal for every bike I see
Nuts' quality is very poor.
Suggest not buying either go for some other bike.

    This bike gives one of the best riding experiences but only if you ride without a passenger. Seat cushioning is not the best but it has its after-market solutions. The rear suspension doesn't feel too reliable but considering long highway rides, you should definitely give it a shot. P.S. - service department failed to fully satisfy me at least, can't tell about other owners.

    I am facing constant mechanical failure from my jawa bike. Since the time of purchase, I am facing n number of challenges that weren’t rectified properly. And takes time to resolve.
    In a span of six months, I have towed my vehicle to the service station three times due to mechanical failure.
    Talking about the last incident my vehicle was towed to the service center due to mechanical failure. They said it would take three days to repair, however, it took two weeks to repair. After these two weeks, I received a call from the service center saying the vehicle is ready. When I received the vehicle from the service center the front brake was not effective even after changing the brake pad during the service. The total amount for the service was inr 22,000. I was surprised by the fact that even the brake was not rectified properly after changing the brake pad and charging a ‘labor charge’ for each individual item replaced or repaired and on top of that paid service charge and consumable charges.
    I notified the service manager and they took the vehicle for inspection again. An hour later the manager informed me that it would take one more day. I returned to work from there. The vehicle was delivered to my workplace after a day saying it is in perfect condition now. The vehicle was not properly rectified even after that. While riding, the vehicle is getting off and not getting started. I took a video and informed the service manager. The same process happened again. They came took the vehicle, said it is rectified, and delivered it a day later. Again the same story. The same mechanical issue isn’t rectified. Informed them and they took my vehicle to the service center again.
    In these three years of owning this vehicle, I have spent almost half the vehicle cost on services and repairs. This is my only vehicle and I depend on it on a daily basis for all my travel be it for work or other purposes. While comparing the ownership cost of other bikes in this category I feel that my choice to buy a Jawa product was a disaster. I feel cheated of my hard-earned money.

    Waste of money, you can buy other bikes at the same price as Jawa 42 .
    Defects-
    A lock is not working after 3 months,
    Continuously fuse cutting after 1 year.
    Facing so many problems.
    Never recommended to anyone.
    Heavy maintenance.
    Every time needs the adjustment of the chain.
    The problem is unresolved even after servicing.
    And the service center is unavailable in my nearest location.

    I bought jawa 42 in Oct 2019, and within 2-3 months I faced a knocking issue in the engine and a complete breakdown of the Engine, they opened the engine and resolved the issue, I asked to remove the mufflers in the second service but it was not possible due to rusting, now in 3 rd year, my bike has gone to service center thrice in a month and still it's not getting started despite changing the battery and paying 7k + amount... Worst experience... I regret buying it now.. Hope I could have bought any other bike or used my old bike instead.... Complete waste of money...

    The buying experience and the riding experience for the bike are average.
    What is problematic is the service and the quality of the parts used in the bike.
    Within 3 years the major parts of the bike are catching rust.
    Shock-absorber, gear padel, nuts, engine.
    The majority of the parts are catching rust.
    The fuel meter is not accurate.
    The bike to this date has traveled only 13,000 km.
    I purchased my bike in Jan 2021.
    Then covid hit.
    So the bike has only been active for around a year.
    Still, this is the condition.
    If only in 3 years this is the condition of the bike it's emotionally a very disturbing thing.
    Pros:
    Good power
    Good for rides
    Cons:
    Service
    Parts quality
    Fuel meter
    Ground clearance
    100% not worth the money.

    Its spares are worthless of their genuinity, they are looting money from the public in the name of genuine parts, vehicles get out of order any time between your important rides and create extreme frustration how to toe away to the agency, local mechanics deny from repairing this bike as it's spares are too costly to handle the comfortable ride, it's better to go for royal Enfield, you will not cry, jawa is a waste of money and your emotions, it's not at the level of the cruiser, it's just a simple motorcycle and they are just trying to create a brand to make their spare parts more expensive to recover their manufacturing costs.

    Buying the forty-two was one of the greatest moments for me. The riding experience is not so good as the seat is not very comfortable, the rear suspensions are quite disappointing and the ground clearance is the least in the segment. But the power it exhales is enormous. I love riding the bike despite all that.

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...
