Ever since its launch in November last year, the Jawa brand has been getting a lot of attention for its bikes, the Forty-Two and the Jawa. Apart from queries related to their deliveries among other things, one of the most sought after question about the bikes was about their mileage. Various vloggers and others who managed to get their hands on the bike quoted different figures but now Jawa has put all speculations to rest and finally released the ARAI certified fuel efficiency figures of the Jawa and Forty Two. This was done through a tweet which you see below.

Going by this tweet, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 rivalling Jawa bikes get an ARAI certified fuel efficiency figure of 37.5 km/l. This is quite a decent figure and slightly more than its chief rival, the Royal Enfield Classic 350, which has an ARAI certified fuel efficiency figure of 37 km/l. Jawa’s mileage is also much more than that of the Mahindra Mojo, which had an ARAI certified fuel efficiency score of 25 km/l. However, real-life mileage figures depend on a lot of factors like riding style, weight on the vehicle, and traffic conditions among others. Therefore, the real-life mileage of the bike is usually less than the official ARAI figure.
Also, these mileage figures are only for the Jawa and Forty-Two bikes but not for the Jawa Perak. This is because the Perak has a more powerful engine than the other two bikes and hence will have a low fuel efficiency figure. Speaking of which, the stylish Jawa Perak bobber is powered by a big bore version of the 293cc motor, displacing 334cc. This bigger engine makes 30 Bhp of power along with 31 Nm of torque.
The Forty-Two and the Jawa, on the other hand, are powered by a 293 cc four-stroke engine that churns out 27 Bhp of power and 28 Nm of torque. The liquid cooled engine is Bharat Stage 6 emission norms ready and uses a very distinct twin exhaust design. All three bikes get a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. The bobber themed Jawa Perak was unveiled along with the other bikes in November last year but it hasn’t been launched yet. It is expected to be launched by the end of this year and it was earlier announced that the bike will be priced at Rs. 1.89 lakhs (ex-showroom). However, the final price could differ a bit at the time of the launch.
The delivery of the Jawa motorcycles has already begun with the first batch handed out on by the company on the 30th of March, 2019. The next delivery slot is expected to happen on the 15th of April 2019. The bikes have received warm feedback from fans and it now remains to be seen how the rivalry between the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the new Jawa bikes turns out to be.
