Around 24 years ago i owned old jawa and rode it for thousands of KM . It will thrill me each and every time i touch the handle bar & pump it to start 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. Now to coming new jawa . I went test ride new jawa with imaginations & drove more than 210 km i got mileage of 23kmpl. 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.I never need a bike for visual pleasure.

I have a lot of problem like the speedometer is going in reverse and also front brake is getting locked sometimes. Main problem is the seat and horn. Seat is really hard and bad for long rides and also the horn sounds cheap which is bad for my bike

This bike is truly wonderful. It's look so lovely like a bobber bike & this bike's engine is great.also this bike is good in mileage. This bike's engine produce more power and torque than Royal Enfield. One of the best things of this bike's is it's double exhaust. This bike is more comfortable than others bike. I am sure JAWA will beat all classic bike companies even Royal Enfield. Thank you.

Bike is over all best but the problem of ground clearance is there. The company should look after this problem. Overall the bike is best with its performance

Got my first servicing done. Seat has been modified for comfort. Got an extra horn and mobile charger fitted.Now one of the sensors not working and dealer says I will have to pay for it.Not a great experience.

It's a great machine. Overall satisfied with the looks and the engine refinement. Not much modification can be done and actually it'll only ruin the classic look of the bike. Sturdy and performer!
