Q. Could you please suggest me a best cruise bike(BS-6) as I do go as pillion for long week-end drives and very limited use(max 5 kms/day) within Bangalore city. My preference are Mileage, Comfortable, Style and of-course price(1.2-1.5 Lakhs).These are in my mind(Avenger 220 cruise, Jawa-42, Royal Enfield Classic) but need your expertise/suggestions.
  • Out of 3 Jawa is the best. It gives the best cruising speed compared to C350 and Avenger 220. It has got advanced, liquid cooled & refined engine.Avenger is 1/3 cheaper than both. So if you are tight on budget, go for Avenger.Otherwise Jawa is a better option than Classic 350 any day.Now Benelli also is in the race. If you are in a Metro city, Benelli 400 also a good option. But here also Jawa has got an upper hand.I ride an Avenger 220 street and it is very cheap to maintain. Bajaj service centers are available in any corner of our country. I’ve never felt that I am riding an inferior bike. It gives a mileage of 35–40 kmpl and can ride whole day without getting pain. It never failed till date.
  • Avenger 220 Cruise is a good buy. Its quite pocket friendly as well when maintenance come into the picture. Jawa and RE Thunderbird comes around 2L on-road Bangalore. Test ride the 3 bikes and go for the one you like. I use the Cruise 220 and ride it usually on Bangalore traffics and get mileage roughly around 30-34 kmpl.
Q. Shall I go for Avenger or Jawa 42?
  • Both are different kind of bike with different segment. Avenger is a cruiser which is suitable for longer ride while jawa' s sitting position is little sporty . Engine capacity also different. So if are looking for bike for longer ride than avenger is suitable for you and if you are looking for a classic looking bike with performance than jawa will suitable for you
  • Avenger will cost you around 1.10 lakhs after taxes.While Jawa 42 will cost you around 1.70 lakhs approx after taxes.Select the bike which is suitable for you.Avenger is Cruiser while Jawa is a Retero Bike!!
  • Both are good bike. In Price,service cost,spare parts cost, avenger is best,

Q. I have booked a Jawa 42 but now I am confused weather to buy RE 350 or Jawa 42, I want the best to be chosen and worth the money I am going to spend. - 42 - 42 - 42?
  • Brother i would give you honest suggestion. Don't go with the looks of jawa, its a new bike and everyone gets attracted towards new bike always, but first thing is There is no Kick start .2.Fuel Gauge does not work properly in almost all jawa bikes. 3.No Alloy wheels.option. 4. No Tubless Tires. 5.Low Quality Matt Paint. 6. Dealers Not well qualified nor mechanics. Road side mechanic cannot repair it. TAKE MY ADVICE GO FOR RE350 AND GET IT SIMPLE MODIFICATION. IT HAS GOT THAT THUMP comfort TO JAWA.
  • Choice is your . But if you required suggestion then I would suggest you to go for JAWA forty two . As the company is delaying in delivering never mind it will surely make it perfect after some months . As I am not going in the specification areas because it is readly available in the internet so you can just compare the both .
  • Dear, if you are looking for worthy bike, then you have to understand that both have significant image. If you are looking for just a classic look and cant wait for it, go for 350 as waiting for JAWA will be more. But both are excellent, in some JAWA has superiority.
