Q. There are lots of complaints from Jawa 42 users about meter complaint and sensor complaint which doesn't allow bike to start. The bike is getting towed to showroom later gets fixed. Also heard about paint quality issues as well as finishing of the bike. Lots of gaps also seen between the parts. As anyone else faced such issues.? Try to bring these issues to the notice of the company. - 42 - 42 - 42?
  • Jawa is a insensitive waste of a company... i have a classic and trust me in the past 10 months of my purchase i have had at least 10 different complaints ranging from battery to fuel efficiency to clutch wire issues to bike abruptly shutting down while in transit.. above all the service center in thane sucks... it cannot get any pathetic than this.. they have kept my bike since last 1 week still trying to understand the problem... no one from the company has come forward and spoken on the issue irrespective of me putting tons of mails and calling them on their customer care number... pathetic bike, pathetic service pathetic responsive team.. own a second hand bike rather than a Jawa... have been cheated of my money you guys dont... be carefull!!!!
  • Yes I am jawa 42 user past six months earlier twaise I got meter issues, and after my 1st service mileage down to 26km/lt later I complaint to jawa service they said bring the vehicle to showroom service centre but after that nothing increase in mileage after few months got heavy rain few days after two wheeler chain was rusted and now my engine oil ceiling is opened I went to 2nd service to service centre now they are saying the oil ceiling is not available right now we will fit with the glue for temporary later on we will fix spare so what I'm saying 42 is looking like a very good but or quality of vichle is very poor poor I recommended you to don't buy Jawa 42 I have footage on this
  • Yes! It is true that some sensors not allowing the bike to start and you will get a notification on your instrumental cluster that “Side Stand On” even if the bike is not on the side stand. It doesn’t allow the fuel injector to do its work. So you won’t hear that buzz noise during the ignition. You won’t see the heat indicator and the lamda indicator light on during the key on. Normally we can see all the indicator lights on and off while the key on.I’m 200+ km away from the service center and struggling with this bike. Really inconvenient.

Q. Which is better among jawa 42, RE Meteor and Honda Hness 350?
  • Selecting the perfect bike depends on various factors such as your budget, ride quality, drive type, engine performance, features required, etc. Here, Jawa is the only bike here using a short-stroke, performance-oriented engine with a 6-speed transmission. Sure it’s fast, but it lacks the retro laidback charm of an under square engine, something we think is crucial for a buyer in this segment. Whereas, the CB 350 makes the best of both worlds: it’s not only powerful but also makes most of its torque lower down the rev range. All bikes here, except the Jawa, run long-stroke motors, with an even spread of torque throughout the rev range -- so they manage just fine with 5-speed transmissions. While both the CB350 and Meteor sport counterbalanced engines for better refinement, the winner here based on specs alone would have to be the CB350 with its true retro charm and loads of bottom-end torque. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More:- 2020 Royal Enfield Meteor 350: Road Test Review - How Does The Highness Stack Up Against The Upcoming Meteor 350? - Honda Hness CB350 vs Jawa 42 vs Royal Enfield Meteor 350
Q. I like Thunderbird 350 and have also taken a test of Jawa 42. A bit confused after taking the test drive of Jawa42. It is also a smooth and powerful bike. Technically advanced also. which one to buy considering technical features, durability, mileage and maintenance? Please advise. Jawa's handling is also great. Runs smooth and looks better. But please give an expert opinion on what to buy.
  • I've got a TBTS350 and have taken rides of Jawa 42 as well. performance wise, both are almost same just Jawa is a bit more refined and smoother. suspensions are great on Jawa. when you buy such bikes, most important part is the Maintainance, with Thunderbird an experience of 7+ years after 5 years it started giving me pain in Ass as had to spend a lot every time it goes for service. but that's due to my handling as well, I hardly use it. so whenever I plan to use it it give me a big hole in my pocket. On the other hand I am not sure about Jawa. and to be honest being 5'10" TB is more comfortable specially for long rides. it's a complex comparison to do, both engines are powerful unless you are very critical about every nm it generates. Both are of different segments one is kind of a touring bike and the other one is styling. If you want me to select one, I would select TB due to its very comfortable ride position. The new models xtreme are very juicy as well.
  • Thats what happend in my casse, I am 6.3 tall and heavy, ordered jawa and waited for a 4 months and later realised regarding long rides it will be a hell for my height and the seat length of both Jawa 42 & classic was a bit small so if you are near or above 5.8 its better go to RE classic or what ever bike you like if much more above than 6ft its RE ThunderBird is a preferable choice. at the same time jawa has its pros & cons similarly RE as we all know about the vibrations in RE at higher speeds and Rusting & Pain quality in Jawa. So go by your requirement and the bike which suits you more.
  • Bro go for Thunderbird me piche 3 yrs se use KR raha hu bike awesome bike hai feature loaded hai built quality awesome hai milage around 35 ki mil jaeti hai meko maintenance Bhai 1500 me service ho jati hai plus jagah jagah store hai kahi bhi service krwa lo jawa ke itne service center nai hai across India so bro go for Thunderbird

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.
