Jawa Motorcycles, which has been at the receiving end of some harsh criticism and trolling on the internet for the lag in deliveries of its bikes, Jawa and Jawa Forty Two, has assured that it will fulfil them by September, 2019 as previously stated by the company. Anupam Thareja, co-founder of Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd., the company behind the return of the iconic Jawa bikes in India, told Times Drive that while the delay in deliveries is regrettable, the company will indeed clear the backlog by September.
Thareja added that though the deliveries and production are slow, the company is bracing to ramp up production soon. While he didn't speak about the cause of the delay, it may also be ascribed to the overwhelming response Jawa motorcycles have received since the launch last year. From what we have learned, Jawa motorcycles have been booked till September this year.

The company commenced Jawa and Jawa Forty Two bike's deliveries in India from the last week of March. However, Jawa Motorcycles had clarified then that initially the deliveries would include only single channel ABS variants and that customers who had booked dual channel ABS variants would have to wait till June.
Jawa was first introduced in India in 1960s and as per the latest licensing deal with the Czech brand, Classic Legends will manufacture Jawa motorcycles not only for India but other East Asian countries as well.

For suspension, both Jawa bikes get telescopic hydraulic forks up front and a gas canister-twin shock hydraulic system at the rear.
Jawa comes bearing a cost of ₹1.64 lakh while Forty Two costs ₹1.55 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.
