BS6 Jawa & Jawa Forty Two Gets Subtle Improvements; Deliveries Commence
The updates are aimed towards enhancing ownership experience
Although Classic Legends updated the Jawa and Forty Two to meet BS6 emission norms way back in March, the company only began delivering the bikes this week. Just a couple of weeks ago, the brand even commenced deliveries of its highly anticipated bobber, the Perak. But that’s not all.
The company’s official press statement claims that it has made a few changes to the bikes. These updates might not be visible to the naked eye but they could go a long way in enhancing the ownership experience. Apart from redesigning the seat pan, the cushioning seems to have been improved as well. The BS4 models had a very thin layer of seat foam which, if you were on the heavier side, would cause some form of discomfort.
Also, small bits like the horn and chrome plating (on few models) seems to have been improved. We assume the company has found new vendors for various parts to improve the quality of parts. Jawa’s supply chain was disrupted due to the COVID-19 lockdown as it affected imports from China. We believe Jawa has found solutions to these issues.
The Jawa and Forty Two continue to be powered by a 293cc single-cylinder engine with a twin-port exhaust system. The engine now puts out 26.51PS and 27.05Nm, which is less than the BS4 models. The bikes weigh 2kg more than before as well. Head here to know the new prices of the BS6 Jawas.
