Q. For long Drive Which one is good JAWA or Royal Enfield Thunderbird?
  • Thats true, Jawa is a city bike with a contradictory gear box, i.e., seating posture is for the city, but gear box is for the highway. Also Jawa's pickup had no competition in those earlier days, but now things are different, with plenty of options. Young boys maturing to ride bikes will prefer sporty bikes. Jawa will be preferred by more mature men starting from around their 30s, and by that time men will be family men and for them a short seat like that in Jawa will not serve their family purposes. So most men who are Jawa enthusiasts will have to drop their enthusiasm for Jawa and opt for other options. Lack of tubeless tyre options will also deter many from opting a Jawa. If Classic Legends do not take these into consideration, then Jawa might have a bleak future.
  • Hello Daniel, both bikes are very capable and very retro in their looks. The Jawa however has an edge in the performance department. If you are looking for leasurely cruising then the Thunderbird will suffice. However if you need a higher speed and the benefit of a sixth gear to cruise at higher speeds, yet at lower rpm, then it has to be the Jawa. Why don't you take a test drive of both and then decide.
  • Thunderbird is best one. Jawa is a city bike not a tourer

Q. What the difference between Jawa bikes and Royal Enfield in reference to price, performance, service etc. Is it true that the waiting period for Jawa bikes is 6 month
  • I don't think you've made a ride with the jawa, because the performance is much better than the Enfield ones.Enfield truly lacks power and in terms of smoothness and handling Enfield isn't even close.where enfield gets the benchmark is the service cost and volume of the bike
  • Costlier than Royal Enfield . In performance Royal Enfield is good. Regarding service wehave wait until it hits the road. Regarding waiting period it is falsely over hyped by jawa. To create more booking.
  • Waiting period is 8 months. Booked it today. RE is far inferior compared Jawa in ride quality, comfort, handling, pick up, smoothness, Fewer or no vibrations etc.

Q. Which is the best bike Jawa Classic or RE 350?
  • 24 years ago i have driven old jawa for thousands of KM . It will thrill me every time i touch the handle bar & pump it to alive the engine. The exhaust thump & interval between the next thump cant say in words. Flick & Kick is a wonderful experience . I used to get mileage around 30 kmpl to 35 kmpl. Now to coming new jawa . I went test ride new jawa with imaginations & drove more than 210 km i got mileage of 18 kmpl. Engine is powerful till 110 km/hr then it straining to climb speed with vibrations & becomes too noisy .The exhaust sound is like hero splendor bike. There are lots welding visually seen around new jawa . They recreated visibly old jawa . Visually good bike. I didn"t get moved or ringed & impressed while riding.I never need a bike for visual pleasure
  • Can you please explain, why RE is best compared to Jawa
  • Jawa classic

Imperiale 400 User Reviews
  • Many of the reviews are fake, in Jan 2019 bikes are not delivered and how they are criticising so don't fool others in public. Really bike is good in all aspects so don't confuse, go for a test drive and experience and then decide to buy or not.
