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.
