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.🤩

  • Probably, I went for a test drive with over expectations, I.Wasnt impressed at all after my test drive 9th block jayanagar, Bangalore showroom.Here are few.Points 1.Initially throttle performance is good in comparison to re meteor, However ride experience on meteor is like butter smooth, While roadster is very rough and not refined.2.In case your idea is touring bike, Roadster is a.Confused ergonomics.It's neither here or there.3.Gears don't slot well.On the dashboard it showed gear is in 0 or neutral, And then opened the clutch.Bike simply jumped, Stalled and fell.I wasn't hurt thankfully, But had to pay for minor damages, For none of my fault.At this price point if yezdi can't get their gear shifts right, Then they will never get it.So.Simply no to this new yezdis roadster and no competition to re meteor which wins this hands down.
