    @ Uppiliappan | Thunderbird is best one. Jawa is a city bike not a tourer

    Thats true, Jawa is a city bike with a contradictory gear box, i.e., seating posture is for the city, but gear box is for the highway. Also Jawa's pickup had no competition in those earlier days, but now things are different, with plenty of options. Young boys maturing to ride bikes will prefer sporty bikes. Jawa will be preferred by more mature men starting from around their 30s, and by that time men will be family men and for them a short seat like that in Jawa will not serve their family purposes. So most men who are Jawa enthusiasts will have to drop their enthusiasm for Jawa and opt for other options. Lack of tubeless tyre options will also deter many from opting a Jawa. If Classic Legends do not take these into consideration, then Jawa might have a bleak future.

    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.
