The Jawa and the Jawa Forty-Two are out in the market since some time now and a large number of people have received their bikes too. Jawa says that it will complete the deliveries of the first round by September. Both the Jawa motorcycles are retro-modern design bikes and carry the DNA of the old Jawa bikes sold in India. As always, retro-themed bikes are further enhanced by accessories and for the same, Jawa is also offering a host of accessories with its bikes. While we already told you about them last week, here is a video by Footloose Dev which shows a few of them in more detail. Take a look at the video before we proceed on the details of these accessories.
In the video, we see a red Jawa Forty-two with the official accessories on it. This consists of a leg guard, backrests and a centre stand. The centre stand will come as a part of the standard accessories and will not come as an optional accessory. Earlier it was not clear whether the centre stand will come with the bike or has to be bought separately, though it was expected that it will be a part of the standard fitments only. Had it been made available as an optional accessory, it would have cost around another Rs. 1,000 for the buyers.
Talking about the other accessories here, there is a black crash guard attached to the chassis. It is slightly smaller in size and is curved towards its end. Most importantly, it does not look like a hindrance in the bike’s classy looks and moreover adds to the overall appeal. There are other designs and size options for crash guards too and details about them will be made available soon. Moving on, there is a backrest on the bike too which is available in three types. The first is a simple metal grab rail, second is a more sophisticated metal panel with a secondary metal grab rail to add on top and the third is a proper cushioned backrest with luggage rack. Saree guards and bar end mounted mirrors will also be a part of the optional accessory kit.
The Jawa bikes are powered by a 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder DOHC engine which churns out 27 Bhp of power along with 28 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. As for the suspension duties, the front end gets telescopic hydraulic forks while the rear end sports gas canister twin shock absorbers. The ARAI certified fuel efficiency score of the motorcycles stands at 37.5 km/l, which is pretty decent. The motorcycles also get the option of dual-channel ABS now, through a single channel ABS is sold as standard on the bikes.
