Q. For long Drive Which one is good JAWA or Royal Enfield Thunderbird?
  • Hello Daniel, both bikes are very capable and very retro in their looks. The Jawa however has an edge in the performance department. If you are looking for leasurely cruising then the Thunderbird will suffice. However if you need a higher speed and the benefit of a sixth gear to cruise at higher speeds, yet at lower rpm, then it has to be the Jawa. Why don't you take a test drive of both and then decide.
  • Thunderbird is best one. Jawa is a city bike not a tourer

Q. Should I go for a Jawa Motorcycles Jawa or Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350? Please suggest.
  • Jawa is just a hype nothing more . 24 years ago i owned old jawa & driven it for thousands of KM . It will thrill me every time i touch the handle bar & pump it to alive the engine. The exhaust thump & interval between the next thump is wonderful. Flick & Kick is a experience . I used to get mileage around 30 kmpl to 35 kmpl. Now to coming new jawa . I have driven new jawa with imaginations for more than 250 km i got mileage of 18 kmpl. Engine is powerful till 110 km/hr then it straining to climb speed with vibrations & becomes too noisy .The exhaust sound is like hero splendor bike. There are lots of welding visually seen around new jawa . They recreated visibly old jawa . Visually good bike. I didn"t get moved or ringed & impressed while riding.I never need a bike for visual pleasure.I prefer RE 350 segment & RE 350 thunderbird is good choice.
  • Jawa is more fun, but doesn't provide you adequate pillion ride's space. so if you ride alone and your height is below 6 feet. jawa is better
  • Both or good
Q. Whats the difference between 42 and Jawa
  • When Jawa Motorcycles came to India in the 70s, the very first motorcycle to come from their stables was named the Jawa. Now, tradition repeats itself as the first motorcycle to be launched from the resurrected marque is also called the Jawa. The new Jawa doesn’t just share its name with the original, both look quite identical too. From the horn sitting below the headlamp and between the front fork covers and the chrome fuel tank, the new Jawa is a modern interpretation of the original. Like the original, the front headlamp cover covers part of the handlebars and also houses a large black-faced dial that indicates speed and fuel level. It also gets a digital inset for the odometer. Apart from being simple, it is the attention to detail on the bikes that impress us. For example, the fuel filler cap gets inscribed text while the horn gets an ornamental design as well. We love the fact that Jawa Motorcycles has managed to design this bike so close to the original. This Jawa is priced at Rs 1.65 lakh (ex-Delhi). In comparison, the Jawa Forty Two is a neo-retro take on the classic looking Jawa. It gets a conventional headlamp with black painted fork covers as well as matte and gloss paint options. The front mudguard too is a more conventional unit. While both bikes use similar underpinnings, the Forty Two has a more aggressive seating position thanks to lower mounted handlebars. It also gets rear view mirrors mounted on the bar ends for a more sporty look. The offset mounted instrument console shares the same internals as the classic Jawa’s integrated unit. The Forty Two shares the same double cradle frame, front telescopic forks and twin gas-charged rear shock absorbers with the Jawa. Both get 18-inch front and 17-inch rear spoked wheels shod with tube-type MRF Nylogrip tyres and a front disc-rear drum setup with a single-channel ABS as standard. It’s the same case with the 293cc liquid cooled and fuel injected single-cylinder motor as well. This engine produces 27PS of power and 28Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The company says it has paid close attention to making the motor sound like the two-stroke engines that powered Jawas from the past. To that effect, the bike gets a 2-1-2 exhaust system and a twin port exhaust outlet. Interestingly, priced at Rs 1.55 lakh (ex-showroom), the modern-looking Jawa Forty Two is Rs 10,000 more affordable than the Jawa.
  • Jawa and jawa 42 they both have the same engine and chassis. where as the 42 model is more focused on younger generation by adding matt finishes, handlebar mirrors and a sportier off-centre instrument cluster with no other flashy chrome parts unlike the 'jawa' model. and a little cheaper than jawa .
  • Engine is Same . Appearance is different and Price of classic is 12K INR Aprox more then 42
