Together these three introduced three different variations of bikes but the Jawa 42 is particularly attractive. The engine on Jawa 42 is spectacular for its price. It is 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine in a double-cradle chassis. The engine generates 27bhp of power and 28Nm of torque. The fuel injection system does the fuel delivery. The Jawa 42 comes in six variations in terms of the color: Hally’s Teal, Galactic Green, Starlight Blue, Lumos Lime, Nebula Blue, and Comet Red.

Regarding the price bit, Jawa 42 is priced at ₹1.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Very few bikes have been hits in India as the Jawa has been in the past. The Italian engineered bike steals one’s heart with its sleek look and a powerful engine. The riding experience is one of a kind with a flat torque curve. Our suggestion? Go for it!
