    The Jawa 42 sits between the different Royal Enfield Classic 350 variants that are on offer currently. It offers a retro design with modern underpinnings that should perform well. What’s more, it is likely to be more reliable in the long run as well. Meanwhile, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 looks more modern but should offer an old school feels thanks to its motor. You also get more variants to choose from as well as a rear disc brake and dual-channel ABS. Ultimately the Jawa 42 offers a modern bike with a classic design while the Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a retro-modern design with old school mechanicals, which makes it feel like you’re riding something from an era gone by. While comparing these two Classic Legends we have only one thing to say that "Legends are not meant to compare there are meant to ride". So suggest you to take a test ride of both the Legendary motorcycles to know which one is better for you.Royal Enfield Classic 350 Vs Jawa 300: Spec Comparison :- https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/royal-enfield-classic-350-vs-jawa-300-spec-comparison/32303/ Jawa 42 vs Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Comparison:- https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/jawa-motorcycles-42-vs-royal-enfield-bullet-350-twinspark

    I hope ajay is little but prejudicial towards 350x because his every answer is negative for jawa. However jawa supersedes in performance, built and ergonomics. From the 27 bhp which is jawa as compared to the 19 bhp of 350x, jawa is comparable to the 500x which gives the same bhp. Now lets talk about the vibrations of 350x, on the other hand jawa gives you a very smooth ride. Now lets talk about the pricing for jawa 42 which is 1.55 lacs ex showroom which is approx 20 k less than 350x. The same is with the kerb weight for which jawa offers the machine for 170 kgs on the other hand 350x weighs 190kgs. And yes taller persons can eaily ride jawa.

    Both the bikes are the Indian classic legends and both are not meant to compare if you need a better service network then you can go for Royal Enfiled Classic 350 whereas if you need a more comfortable riding then you can buy Jawa classic. We would suggest you go for the Jawa for better power if you are not a big fan of Royal Enfiled.

    Royal Enfield bikes are known to run in to maintenance issues after 2 years. Most of my friends have complained this often. But everyone buys a RE for the classic looks. Now that Jawa is in. We have to see how it will perform to comment. On the looks oart it looks like Jawa is a winner.

    Not sure about Jawa but classic is definitely not suited for more than 3hrs continuous drive. Best for long drive is Thunderbird 350 / 500

    Java 42 is new in market so customer feedback isn't available. And I don't like the exhaust note of that as compared to classic 350
