Q. Which is better between Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Jawa 42 - 42 - 42 - 42?
  • The Jawa 42 sits between the different Royal Enfield Classic 350 variants that are on offer currently. It offers a retro design with modern underpinnings that should perform well. What’s more, it is likely to be more reliable in the long run as well. Meanwhile, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 looks more modern but should offer an old school feels thanks to its motor. You also get more variants to choose from as well as a rear disc brake and dual-channel ABS. Ultimately the Jawa 42 offers a modern bike with a classic design while the Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a retro-modern design with old school mechanicals, which makes it feel like you’re riding something from an era gone by. While comparing these two Classic Legends we have only one thing to say that "Legends are not meant to compare there are meant to ride". So suggest you to take a test ride of both the Legendary motorcycles to know which one is better for you.Royal Enfield Classic 350 Vs Jawa 300: Spec Comparison :- https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/royal-enfield-classic-350-vs-jawa-300-spec-comparison/32303/ Jawa 42 vs Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Comparison:- https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/jawa-motorcycles-42-vs-royal-enfield-bullet-350-twinspark
  • I hope ajay is little but prejudicial towards 350x because his every answer is negative for jawa. However jawa supersedes in performance, built and ergonomics. From the 27 bhp which is jawa as compared to the 19 bhp of 350x, jawa is comparable to the 500x which gives the same bhp. Now lets talk about the vibrations of 350x, on the other hand jawa gives you a very smooth ride. Now lets talk about the pricing for jawa 42 which is 1.55 lacs ex showroom which is approx 20 k less than 350x. The same is with the kerb weight for which jawa offers the machine for 170 kgs on the other hand 350x weighs 190kgs. And yes taller persons can eaily ride jawa.
  • Both the bikes are the Indian classic legends and both are not meant to compare if you need a better service network then you can go for Royal Enfiled Classic 350 whereas if you need a more comfortable riding then you can buy Jawa classic. We would suggest you go for the Jawa for better power if you are not a big fan of Royal Enfiled.

Q. Which is better for buy Avenger 180cc or 220cc
  • The Bajaj Avenger Street 220 is a more-urban focused version of the Cruise 220. So, based on your preference and riding style, you can choose either one as they are the same underneath. Street 220 offers fantastic value for money. The Pulsar 220-sourced engine delivers a fine balance between power and frugality, with a lot more oomph factor compared to the previous generation model. On the other hand, Bajaj Avenger 180 replaces the Avenger 150 for a price bump of Rs 5,000. For this premium, it not only gets more power than the model it replaces but also its rival, the Suzuki Intruder 150. The style and feature upgrades have given it a modern look, while not feeling overly done, unlike the Intruder 150. Add to that Suzuki’s asking price of around Rs 15,000 over the Bajaj Avenger 180 and the Bajaj comes across as a great value-for-money motorcycle. More so, when you can use the saved cash to buy a good set of riding gear for those long weekend rides. Ultimately, it boils down to your requirement. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

It is also the most affordable of all cruisers in this segment.
  • Actually, till the gear box design of Avenger 220 is not revised / rectified properly,(I am suffering/ weeping with the same since last so many years) along with anumber of other vital and fatal designing defects in this vehicle, I must claim, it has never been worth riding and is a sample of poor craftsmanship, inefficient andbadly engineered design and employment of under-specification electrical andmechanical components.
