    Yes, Jawa 42 is a good pick. Jawa hasn’t tinkered around with the suspension setup much here. It uses the same telescopic fork and twin gas-charged shocks. These are set up on the firmer side, which means that you tend to feel every small ripple or undulation on the road at slow speeds, which were aplenty during our ride. The ride settles down as you gather pace, with the shocks filtering out most road imperfections. It’s only when you encounter sharp bumps that you need to be extra cautious. The quick rebound setting of the twin shocks can unsettle the bike and toss the rider off the seat. Handling has always been a strong trait of the Jawas and the Forty Two 2.1 is no different. It is incredibly light on its feet, which is great for dodging potholes and slicing through traffic. When you do show it a set of corners, it manages to keep you hooked from one apex to another. And despite having a short wheelbase, the Forty Two 2.1 remains planted when leaned over. It does remind you of its cornering limitations though. Ride spiritedly and the side-stand starts grinding on the left side. You can carry a few more degrees of lean into right-handers but not much. The damage done on the right side can be more serious though, as you end up grazing the exhaust and the circlip that joins the exhaust pipe to the muffler. Braking performance is predictable and not too overpowering, but we would have liked for a bit more lever feedback. ABS intervention is consistent and not too intrusive. 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 -Jawa 42 2.1 First Ride Review.
