2021 Jawa Forty-Two Review

A twisty mountain road astride a modern classic motorcycle could be the near-perfect way to spend a few days, if you're not in too much of a hurry, or have any fixed plans of reaching or arriving anywhere. And the Jawa Forty-Two is almost the ideal companion for such a laid-back excursion. Smooth performance, great road manners, and period-correct looks with a design straight out of the '60s, there's not a lot to dislike about this Jawa. Scraping the right exhaust around a fast corner, I begin to think; it may have the styling of a classic, but it's willing to be hustled around corners.

The Jawa Forty-Two 2.1 gets small, but significant updates

The updated Jawa 42 is my first outstation assignment in the post-COVID world. And then it hits me; in this era of social distancing, nothing possibly comes close to a motorcycle ride, to make the perfect getaway from civilisation. And the Jawa Forty-Two has got the qualities to make it quite a likeable companion, and not just to me. The Forty-Two is the most popular motorcycle in the Jawa Motorcycle range, and it's the most affordable Jawa as well. Last year, it got updated to the latest Bharat Stage VI, or BS6 emission regulations, and now, in 2021, it gets some more updates, with small changes, but significant in their own way. So, enter the Jawa Forty-Two 2.1!

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for sharing this information. I did bought my Bike from chennai sanatorium showroom during Nov 2019 itself. I did used very limited usage till March 2020, still I did all regular service at the same sanatorium service centre. My problem here is the service was not upto the mark and I have to go back with further complaints after every service. This really makes me feel bad about the purchase of my bike and thinking of going for some other better option. Here am looking forward suggestions on better service centre were I will get needed assistance and best service near me. If possible please provide me with tamil speaking representative to give better illustration of my compliant s over call. Thank you and looking forward to here from you soon.
