    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which bike is there to buy Dominar 250 or Jawa 42 also, I am not tall enough, but I like performance bike and a bit confused between these two bikes ?
    • Both the bikes are good enough as per requirements but are of different segments and both have different characteristics. If we talk about Jawa 42, it has enough power to satisfy the bulk of buyers looking to commute in the city on weekdays and holidays on the weekends. The Jawa leaves you impressed as much by its mechanicals as its appeal. Also, its seat height comparatively low and comfortable enough. So, if that sounds promising enough to you, you had better get ready to wait a bit longer as Jawa deliveries take many months. On the other hand, as a motorcycle, the Dominar 250 does one thing right -- it is fit to purpose. The Dominar 400, for example, always felt like a confused motorcycle as the 390’s motor is too manic to make for a great sports tourer. It gets the job done, but just about. On the other hand, the Dominar 250’s motor felt boring on the KTM, but combined with the comfortable tourer the Dominar is, it works beautifully. It truly feels like it deserves the ‘sports tourer’ tag. So while Bajaj might pitch it as the entry-level Dominar, we think the 250 is the Dominar in its perfect form. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.

    • 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.

    Q. I am confused so much, I want Style and Power. Please help me to decide in Royal Enfield Classic Signals and Jawa 42 - 42?
    • The Jawa seems to be reasonably superior to the Classic 350 when it comes to outright performance numbers as the 293 cc engine in Jawa 42 generates 27.37 PS of power while the 346cc air-cooled and carburetted single-cylinder motor in Classic 350 generates 20.07 PS. The Forty-Two has good performance and good combination of modern underpinnings and powertrain. Royal Enfield, on the other hand, has a much stronger dealer footprint in India, a tried and tested torquey engine which makes buying a Classic 350 a lot more wholesome experience than simply buying a motorcycle. In order to know which bike would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test ride.
