Jawa made a comeback in the Indian market back in November last year with the launch of two new bikes, the Jawa Forty-Two and the Jawa Classic. Both the bikes received a warm welcome from buyers and the whole lot was booked much before the expected timeline. However, the deliveries of the bikes were to be started a few months later and therefore the waiting period on the bikes kept on increasing. Currently, there are many customers who have booked their bikes but the delivery of the bikes are expected to happen in a few months. For the enthusiasts who want the bike without waiting now have a way to do it.
A couple of owners of the Jawa motorcycles have listed their bike for sale. The seller of this Jawa Forty-Two is selling it for Rs. 2.10 lakhs and it is up for sale in Hassan, Karnataka. The price mentioned in the advertisement is almost the same as the road price for the bike in Hassan. However, the major point here is that you won’t be having but you do get the no-waiting period advantage. The Galactic Green coloured bike has run 2,007 km till date and is a 2019 model, which means it is only a few months old.
It also gets extra accessories like grab rail, and crash guard among others. From the pictures, this bike looks to be in an immaculate condition and seems to be in the showroom condition. Also, the advertisement mentions that the bike gets 5-year zero depreciation insurance, which will make the ownership experience worry-free. The seats, exhaust pipes, handlebars, and other body parts seem to be in an almost new condition and there is apparently no rusitng on the body too.
The Jawa 42 features a retro-modern design with many bits that give it a custom motorcycle vibe. Powering the bike Both the Jawa 42 and Classic use the reworked Mahindra Mojo 293cc four-stroke, single-cylinder engine. This motor churns out 27 Bhp of power along with 28 Nm of torque. Further, the engine features technologies like fuel injection, liquid cooling, a four-valve head, twin exhaust ports and twin camshafts.
Coming to the question of whether you should buy it or not, it depends on how badly you want the bike. If you really like the Jawa Forty-Two and don’t want to wait for long to get your hands on it, this one is a decent deal to look into. Do keep in mind though that the registration certificate will mention that the bike has been previously owned, which may bring down the resale value of the bike in the future. However, if you’re planning to keep the bike and use it for more than five years, such things should not matter at all.
