In the past we have done several articles on drag races and top-speed battle between cars and bikes. This time around we have another such video showing a drag race between the Jawa 42 and the TVS Apache RTR 200 Motorcycles. The video has been uploaded by Subham Yaduvanshi on his Youtube channel. what are the results? well, to know that lets have a quick look at video.
The race is conducted in 3 rounds. In first round starts and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V can be seen taking the lead leaving the Jawa 42 behind. In few moments Jawa 42 starts gaining on the the Apache and we can see Apache struggling maintain the lead. At about 137 Kmph, Jawa 42 overtakes Apache 200 easily and takes the pole position.
In second round things were a bit different Jawa 42 took the lead at the first place itself and the Apache was trying to chase the Jawa. Apache did overtake Jawa at a point but only for few seconds. After that Jawa was back on the lead. What happened in the first round repeated in the third round as well. Apache went ahead and late Jawa chased it down.
In all the three rounds Jawa was the winner. Why? the simple answer is that it has a bigger engine than the Apache RTR 200 4V. The Jawa 42 is powered by a 293-cc, liquid cooled, fuel injected, single cylinder engine that produces a maximum of 27 Bhp and 28 nm of torque. The TVS Apache 200 on the other hand comes with 197.5-cc, oil cooled, single cylinder engine producing a maximum of 21 PS and 17 Nm torque.
The Jawa 42 is more powerful than the Apache and that was one of the main reason it won all the three races. Second is the rider, The final result of a race depends a lot on the rider. How he rides, the weight and all the factors. The Apache rider lost a bit of his concentration in the second round which is why the Jawa took the lead in round 2.
The initial acceleration on the Apache was great but towards higher rpm the Apache ran out of power and that is where the Jawa performed well. Classic legends and re-introduced Jawa Classic and Jawa 42 in Indian market last year and have received a huge response from the customers. Jawa also plans to bring their factory custom bobber Perak to Indain market in some time.
