Jawa Forty Two Motorcyclediaries

Finally, Jawa founder said that dual-channel ABS equipped bikes will start getting delivered soon, but where are the single disc bikes which were promised early delivery?

Jawa motorcycles re-entered the Indian market on 15th November 2018 with three classic motorcycles. Jawa 300, Jawa Forty-Two, and Jawa Perak Bobber. The company started taking online bookings and went offline in just 40 days due to overwhelming response.

Its June 2019, and only a few people got their bikes. Classic Legends (owner of Jawa motorcycles) are struggling with vendor supply chain, due to which production is not high enough to deliver motorcycles to the customers. However, a statement same from the Founder of the Classic Legends, he says that Jawa will begin deliveries of 300 and Forty-Two with dual-channel ABS by the end of June. We can expect deliveries of 20-30 bikes by the end of this month

The price of Jawa 300 and Jawa Forty-Two with dual-channel ABS is Rs 1.73 lakh and Rs 1.64 lakh ex-showroom respectively. This is around Rs 9000 more than the single-disc variant. All we need to see when Jawa will begin delivery of motorcycles to the customers in full swing.


For a reminder, a same 300cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine powers both the bikes. The engine output is rated at 27bhp and 28Nm torque at ‘unknown engine speed’. A 6-speed gearbox transfer power to the rear wheel. Performance wise, Jawa bikes does 0 to 100 in 12 seconds. Top speed is near about 130 kmph. The bikes are designed to ride on highways as most of the customers will do the same.

In the Indian market, Jawa will tackle straight at the bikes from the Royal Enfield’s stable. The main contender to Jawa is Royal Enfield Classic and Bullet models. Once, the sales pick up, we can analyze which bike people are loving more.
