Full Of Rusting - Jawa 42
Got my Jawa42 luminous lime on 02.08.19 from JMB annanagar in Chennai (booked on 16.11.18), felt very happy and fulfilled, was great fun and pride driving felt really smooth and comfortable and was a REAL HEAD TURNER and everyone was talking about the bike in the neighbourhood.
Things turned ugly when the bike parts started to rust even before the first service ( 1000Km/30 Days)
-Right side rear shock absorber.
-Right side RVM stem.
-Paint peeling off in handlebar, near the fork nut.
-Front Fork nut.
-Front fork Assembly weld joints.
Usually Chrome part gets affected first in about a year, but in this case, the painted parts were the first to rust, questioning the product quality.
When complained during the first service the service engineer said its due to the place where I live( i live near the coastline), I asked him if that's the case you can't sell in most of the tier1 and tier2 cities in INDIA as most of them fall on the coastline (think CLASSIC LEGENDS missed SALT SPRAY TEST for SHEET METAL PARTS during their R&D), after to much off a argument finally he took pictures of the defective parts and said he will raise a complaint (this happened on 09.09.19) after regular calls and visiting the dealership, the only answer I got is " WE ARE WAITING FOR JAWA TO SEND REPLY ON THIS" 3 months still the issue is as fresh as it was.
Don't know how long I need to wait to get it fixed or my bike gets fully rusted to dust.
