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?
  • Java 42 and Royal Enfield Classic 350 are two bikes with carrying forward their heritage to the next era. Java is something new to the ground zero as being relaunched after a very long period of time. The Java leaves you impressed by its mechanicals as its appeal. Confidence from the MRF rubber and ABS enabled 280mm Bybre disc at the front allow the rider to ride harder. A sense of agility and involvement dawns on you when you steer the Jawa into corners. As far as the vibrations are considered at high RPMs there was some buzz from the bar and seat, but the overall refinement levels were acceptable. Changes to the gear selector drum and shift-forks have made the shifts precise and positive.Royal Enfield Bullet 350 on the other hand, Bullet is powered by the same 346cc, single-cylinder, the air-cooled motor is mated to a 5-speed transmission, and pumps out 20PS of power at 5250rpm and 28Nm of peak torque at 4000rpm. Suspension duties are handled by 35mm telescopic front forks and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. The ride quality is amazing as it is a cruiser to rule the highway, the vibrations come to life after the bike hits speed more than the 90 Kmph. At the 80kmph mark, the bike is butter smooth with soothing thump sound. If you are looking for a retro classic motorcycle, there is nothing that comes close to being a proper retro. That said, we wish to see more features, better refinement and reliability on offer from Royal Enfield.Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride of the all the bikes so that you may appraise the bike on the basis of your outlook toward the ride quality, features, built quality and comfort individually.Click here for Dealership: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
  • 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.
