The “Tiger on Wheels”

As per the specifications mentioned and by the looks, the motorbike seems to be excellent. But it is not out there on the streets, so it is impossible to say anything about its performance, especially within city traffic (most reviews are about long distance / highway travel).

There should have been an option of black (glossy as well as matte) and an option of kick start. The dealerships and spare parts availability is also a concern and the time taken for delivery is too long (6 to 8 months after booking). The odometer and the speedometer could have included a trip meter.

On the positive side, the motorbike looks compact, muscular and seems to be performance-driven. It is not too long like the REB (Bullet) and seems to be easily maneuverable in city roads. The best feature seems to be the power. With a 6.3 weight-to-power ratio (170 KGs / 27 BHP), it seems to be a tiger on wheels! And given its compact size and design, it isn't necessary for the rider to be physically big to suit the motorbike. If the REB is a lion, the Jawa (42 and 300) is the Tiger!

Over all, it seems to be a superb motorbike but only after it hits the streets (and a year after that - during which time the availability of the spares, the quality of service, etc can be rated properly) can anything more be said about it.
