Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Jawa 42

    • Extra convenience offered thanks to the addition of alloy wheels.
    • Fit and finish levels have improved massively.
    • Motor feels a lot more tractable and usable.

    Jawa Perak

    • The engine feels more easygoing than the shorter-geared classic Jawa.
    • Can cruise at 100kmph all day long with little to no vibes.
    • Suspension setup is on the firmer side but it does a decent enough job at filtering bumps.

    Jawa 42

    • Has a slightly unnatural riding posture.
    • Gear shifts feel clunky.
    • Lacks modern elements like LED lighting and a smartphone connectivity module.

    Jawa Perak

    • Build quality has improved compared to the BS4 Jawa, but it still feels a bit rough around the edges.
    • Riding posture feels a bit cramped for a 5’10” frame like mine.
    • The vanilla exhaust note and lack of modern features is a bit of a letdown.

    RPM is high than a normal bike, its meter reading shows 40 but it is not 40, not for crowded places to ride.
