Classic Legends have updated their portfolio with the launch of the Jawa 42 Version 2.1. The updated model gets several styling upgrades and alloy wheels. Here we list the top five highlights of the new Jawa 42 Version 2.1.
The overall styling has not received a major change, and the latest iteration of the Jawa 42 continues to use a retro design. The motorcycle features a round headlight, bar-end mirrors, a flat seat, and twin-sided exhaust setup. The Version 2.1 gets a dark theme and parts like engine, exhaust canisters, front fork covers, and the rear springs feature a black finish.
The styling is further complemented by an offset racing stripe that runs along the fuel tank and into the rear fender. The latest iteration of the motorcycle comes with alloy wheels instead of wire-spoke units. The new setup brings tubeless tyres to the Jawa 42. The alloy wheels come as standard on the Jawa 42, and they will also be sold separately at all dealerships for existing customers. The list of optional extras include a flyscreen, headlamp grille, saddlebags, and saddle stays.
The Jawa 42 Version 2.1 has been launched in three colour options – All Star Black, Sirus White, and Orion Red.
The mechanical specifications remain unaltered as the Jawa 42 already complied with the BS6 emission norms. Thus, the 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine continues to produce 27bhp and 27Nm of peak torque. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox.
The suspension setup continues to feature telescopic front forks and twin rear springs. Classic Legends claim that the suspension and frame setup has been re-tuned to achieve better ground clearance. The anchoring tasks are handled by single discs on both wheels while the safety net includes Continental-sourced dual-channel ABS.
The new Jawa 42 Version 2.1 has been priced at Rs 1,83,942 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Jawa 42 rivals the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350, Meteor 350, Honda H’ness CB350, and the Benelli Imperiale 400.
