    The single channel ABS on the Jawa 42 works fine and gives you the confidence of riding hard. However, the lack of ABS on the rear wheel requires you to keep a check on impulses when making emergency stops. Steering the Forty Two requires some learning and adjustment as the wider handlebar makes it feel a bit too responsiveness when being steered into a corner, and mid-corner adjustments end up feeling clumsier still. If you are facing an issue and think that the ABS is no working as efficiently then you may head to the nearest authorized service center and have it checked.
