Legendary motorcycle brand Jawa had made a comeback to India last year and had received a huge response. The long waiting periods for the bike is testimony for how popular this brand has become in such a short time. When launched, Jawa had released two products in the market, one Jawa (Classic) and the other Jawa 42. Later this year, Jawa launched their third product Jawa Perak which is a factory custom bobber. It is one of kind motorcycle as it is the cheapest factory bobber in the country at the moment. Jawa Classic and 42 has been around for an year and is now a common sight on our roads. Here is a video from x three media solutions showing the owner’s review on the Jawa Classic.
The video starts by showing the person explaining the history of Jawa motorcycles. In this section he explain how popular Jawa was back in its time and it exported bikes to more than 20 countries. He also explains how it later got shut down and made a grand re-entry last year. Then he is seen taking the delivery of his Jawa Classic motorcycle and starts with discussing the good old memories he had with the old Jawas. He starts pointing out the small details like the design on the fuel filler cap and the Jawa branding on the tank, chrome mirrors etc.
He seems pretty impressed with the ride quality and the suspension, but feels that the seats are a bit on the stiffer side. He says the seating position on the Jawa is pretty good for a person who is below 6 feet. He also says that the Jawa does not come with tubeless tyres because of the spoke wheels. Then he comes to the odometer where he says Jawa is missing on the gear shift indicator and side stand indicator.
The he comes to the performance part. He is very much impressed by the way Jawa performs.He calls the engine very refined and also says it has a great pickup for a bike in this segment. The Jawa Classic he bought was the dual channel version for added safety on our roads. He also revvs the engine to show how the Jawa Classic sounds. The legendary sound of the Jawa is missing as it longer has the 2-stroke engine due to stricter emission norms. Even though he finds a few issues in the Jawa, his overall reaction is that he loved the Jawa Classic.
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. It’s main competition in the market is the popular Royal Enfield.
