• Q. Hi, I am using Honda Unicorn. I planned to buy retro based bike and recently Jawa has been released. So I have done test drive of jawa bike and not much satisfied. So which bike I can buy Jawa or Royal Enfield (Classic 350 or Bullet 350)? Is jawa bike is good choice? It has no Kicker. height also less when compared to RE. I am 6 feet tall. I am confused and need some suggestions on the same. Thanks,Padmanaban.

    1. --- 24 years ago i have driven old jawa 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 cant say in words. Flick & Kick is a wonderful experience . I used to get mileage around 30 kmpl to 35 kmpl. 2.--- Now to coming new jawa . I went test ride new jawa with imaginations & drove more than 210 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 welding visually seen around new jawa . They recreated visibly old jawa . Visually good bike. I didn't get moved or ringed & impressed while riding. 3.-- I owned old bullet 1996 model i used it as by bicycle go everywhere with it. 4.-- Initially when i test drove RE Classic 350 UCE i was upset with engine thump & Rhythm. But the driving experience impressed gave the same pleasure simply same as my old bullet. So i was convinced and purchased a RE Classic 350 UCE engine model and riding till date. 5.-- In addition to it i have purchased interceptor 650 without test driving it . Because the test ride bike & My allotted bike came in same lot went for registration same date . I would say the powerful bike i never owned & Ever manufactured by Royal enfield. my choice was good. I getting mileage around 22 kmpl to 27 kmpl depending upon speed i go.So that's how the new jawa didn't impress me. I never need a bike for visual pleasure.

    See jawa is bit short than Royal Enfield but I think that a 6 feet man should not use Jawa.But I have seen that jawa is better than Royal Enfield.In test drive you may not be satisfied because of your height.In Royal Enfield also the same thing will happen.So my suggestion to you is You should buy Royal Enfield interceptor. But Jawa is smooth.

    Please wait for Benelli Imperial 400 which is due to launch during this year. It will be a quality bike with retro look but high on enjoyment.
