Jawa 42 Pros and Cons

Things We Like in 42

  • Motor feels a lot more usable, with the torque spread evenly across the rev range. This helps in riding at moderate speeds at a gear higher, which wasn’t possible earlier
  • Improved overall quality, with good attention-to-detail elements like logo on the rim stickers
  • Is one of the lightest in segment, so moving around in traffic of tight parking spaces is easy

Things We Dont Like in 42

  • The wide, low handlebars along with the high footpegs give off an unnatural riding posture
  • Stiff suspension results in the rider being thrown off while going over sharp bumps
BikeDekho Verdict:
The Jawa 42 has undergone some changes over the years, making it more of a neo-retro roadster. The high revving engine and stiff suspension makes it a bit sportier than the other bikes in the segment. If that is something you are interested in then the Jawa 42 will be a good bike for you.

42 Expert Review

The Jawa 42 is the cheapest Jawa bike in India. The brand started out with the Forty Two, a classic roadster, whereas its successor, the Jawa 42 is a neo-retro roadster, complete with alloy wheels, blacked out powertrain and underpinnings, among other changes. Here’s how it performs in the real world


True to its identity, the bike gets quite a bit of blacked out elements. The powertrain, suspension and wheels are all finished in black. These changes make the bike look much better than its predecessor. That said, the overall silhouette is still more or less similar to the Jawa Forty Two. The retro character in the new 42 is evident with the offset racing stripe along with the bar-end mirrors. Also impressive is the attention-to-detail, as you can see the logo on the rim stickers. While the Dual Tone variants come with conventional rear view mirrors, and tank grips, the Single Tone variants get a headlight grille and bar-end mirrors, apart from the obvious difference in the colour schemes.

Engine, Mileage & Performance

The Jawa 42 is powered by a 294.72cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 27.32PS and 26.84Nm. The engine feels peppy and eager to go and feels good when riding in the city. The vibrations aren’t that harsh till the mid-range, but beyond that it can be felt on the footpegs and handlebar. The sporty engine along with the sweet exhaust note make it an ideal bike for brisk city commutes.

Handling & Ride Quality

The Jawa 42 is easy to handle, the wide handlebars help it go through the city traffic with ease. The bike is also good at corners (for a bike of this segment), but the low ground clearance makes it easy to scrape the exhausts. The kerb weight of 172kg makes it one of the lightest in the segment and moving it around the parking lot also doesn’t require too much effort. The overall ride quality is on the firmer side as the rider tends to get tossed when going over sharp bumps. 

The brakes offer good bite and progression, and the ABS only intervenes under hard braking.


The Jawa 42 offers a neutral riding posture but it feels like the rider is sitting on top of the bike and not ‘in’ it. The raised footpeg position also makes taller riders feel a bit cramped. 

The seat comes with a denser foam and firm cushioning when compared to its predecessor, and is designed to let the rider tour for longer durations.


The Jawa 42 has been updated with a full-LCD instrument cluster, replacing the older semi-digital console. It is a negatively lit unit and displays information such as speed, fuel level, tachometer, dual trip metres and an odometer. The console provides good visibility in all lighting conditions and overall, is much more practical and easy to read than the old one. 

Should you buy Jawa 42

If you are looking for a neo-retro roadster for city riding, which can deliver good performance along with decent looks then the Jawa 42 is a good choice. The bike comes with modern features, and over the years it has gone through some major changes that have ironed out some of the issues that were present when the bike first came out.
