Q. What about Jawa 42 as compared to RE Classic 350 - 42 - 42 - 42?
  • It all depend on individual taste, but in technical-wise Jawa is for better than RE
Q. Why is the STD version is more costly than the double disc version? Does the double disc version has ABS? Does the bike features a slipper clutch? Does it have a Kickstarter - 42?
  • The STD variant comes equipped with Fuel-injection type supply while the double-disc variant gets Carburetor fuel supply. This is the major reason for the price difference. Moreover, both variants come equipped with ABS, the Double Disc variant gets dual-channel ABS while the STD variant gets single-channel ABS. Furthermore, Jawa 42 misses out on kick start, however, it does get a slipper clutch.
  • Are you sure it has carburetor???
