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.

  • After launching there bikes after so long, jawa have still maintained there old school charm. Highely satisfied with the performance , pickup , handling , looks , design , exhust node , tyre size , capability of bike. It's so attention grabing thing, when ever I bring it on roads people starts following it to watch, many many lod people ask about bike, they say is it that old yedzi company's bike? Abhi bhi isme gear aur kick ek saath hai? Bahut badhiya hai ye to , kitne ki li? , and alot more.... I have lots of stories related to that bike which happens.....when you ride it , it feels like a nimbulled , well designed, a balanced design of colur of bike in many parts , with chrome along with matt black colour, and a very powerful , muscled , compact , powerful , machine. The amount of of power and torque delivers it engine in just 293 cc is really really amazing , more than 27 bhp of power in just 293 cc of engine is still is still so far from aal old and new rivals of this category. Highely satisfied with the bike, highely recommended, before buying any other bike must take a test ride of jawa, you will going to amazed.🤩

  • I never suggest anyone to buy royal enfield bullet 350, No proper service.Roadside assistance without technician in town areas too.Started giving me trouble everytime i ride.I own this bike from last 4 months and is giving me regular trouble the technician said the way by which i was kick-starting is wrong.I have 7 years of experience with my previous bullet.I never suggest anyone buying new bullet.

  • Bs4 tank is worst.It is quickly damaged while compares to previous model tanks.I have changed short bottel silencer but still my was not dropped below 40.I am not using showroom service and re oils.Showroom service is not suitable for my bullet 350.Because front drum break is getting jammed after serviced in showroom.

  • I have an es variant of the bullet 350.This is another variant of iconic bullet 350.The changes are minimal in the es variant with the only major addition is the electric start option.It has a 346cc engine.The weight is about 190 kg (from what i know).Overall its is a pretty good bike! (the color is royal blue).
