  • jawa later became yezdi before

    amarjot
    later was kicked out of the market by the 100 cc hhonda and all the rest this bike was a disaster .my own experience never would start at its first kick even with pumping now the morons who brought back the bike as a revival should have realized that the modern generation needs something snazzy and not retro ..are you forcing things down the peoples throats saying things like retro retro well jawa bike isnt an A class alpha bike and it wont stand the way of a harley. yezdi stood at no. 2 as a cheap alternate and bringing it back wouldnt shake things as envisaged. here in india the yamaha 100 was a super bike after yezdi. same sound. better performance and low consumption. jawa now has to offer better appearance better performance moden out look and a better appeal the old generation ppl who rode the jawa earlier are in therir 60s so they cand ride or buy this bike the younger gen does not need retro looks and retro performance they are modern ppl with high expectency and low price wjich they are already getting through the 100 cc 110 cc and 150 cc bikes on offer..

    The Perfect commuter bike

    S Ranjan
    Thanks for the flat seat and ergonomic design for comfortable seating, handlebar & footpeg positioning & lower seat height unlike the hordes of upturned seat . I wonder as to why majority of the bikes being fashioned for race tracks! Jawas will be catering to all ages and hopefully get the desired sales volumes to survive unlike it's predecessor & Mahindra's misadventures. It will carve a niche of its own provided it's quality can match the competitors and reasonable costs for spares and services. I was tempted to buy BMW 310 R but dropped the idea when the bloggers revealed that the 1st service cost is around Rs 9700/which defies logic. It's servicing cost is three times that of a car (Honda wrv which costs three times of BMW 310R)

  • Didn't meet my expectation....

    Joshi Sade
    I booked my Jawa 42 Nebula blue on November 28, 2018 and got it on the June 6, 2019. The chassis was slightly bent towards the left and when I took up the issue with the showroom person, he said the rear mudguard was bent and it might have happened in transit but did't do anything to fix it. After two weeks I noticed rust on the chain and the front disk brake. I took pics and sent them to the showroom and their immediate response was "Did you go out in the rain? how often do you clean your bike" Of course, I did clean the bike, and the disk but do we have to clean the chain too?? Riding posture is good but comfort wise, its not good while going long distances because the seat is hard. You can feel the heat from the engine after driving it for only 10 km and you have to cross 60 kmph to use the 6th gear and its useless in the city. I am still waiting for the showroom to contact me about the rusty chain and disk brake they said they will contact me the same day but till now nothing happened. The guys at the showroom have ZERO knowledge about the bike or its specs.

  • Price

    Shashikant Devmane
    Prices are on the higher side. If jawa wants to stay in the market it has to reduce the price. In the price of jawa you would get a more established bike.

  • Excellent comeback !!

    Manish Reddy
    I gave up on the idea of buying Royal Enfield as every tom dick and Harry who doesn't know the meaning of Royalty were buying RE .. this Jawa made my day with a grand comeback .. my advice to people who are suggesting that there must be single exhaustion with below 200 cc engine, etc .. please go and buy a Hero Honda Splendor instead of giving foolish suggestions to the legend Jawa, but yes it definitely needs a Kickstarter to make Jawa a true legend !!

  • Add a variant with 200 CC With fuel efficiency

    Goole Gowda
    Awesome looks. Awesome seating and style. Dual exhaust is great but single exhaust would have improved the fuel efficiency. Need to add a 200 CC to complete with midrange commuters section. Dual suspension will definitely give a comfort to the rider even in a pothole roads of INDIA. Make sure fuel efficiency is good to complete with Royal Enfield, at least 35km to 40km. Price need to be strategically fixed to complete with Royals. Please have a LED headlamp

  • Don't get carried away by the retro look and chrome:)

    Vinod
    For all those like me from an era gone by who are eagerly looking to test the JAWA , a few quick notes: The old Jawa and the Yezdi classic ..had them both from my college days were disasters actually. Nice heavy balanced bikes but they had starting issues. Damn things wouldn't start most of the days. All I would do was kick kick and kick and pray..phew they would let out some serious white smoke and off you go:) Mileage was pathetic and petrol was Re 10 /liter). After a nice run stop by for a tea and they wouldn't start again. Carbutteror would overflow:) . and those days except for the bullet there was nothing else..maybe rajdoot and then kinetic honda.. Ind suzuki, RX, Kawasaki Bajaj and hero honda came along and wiped the old boys out:) Looking to see Jawa start every time u want it to:)))

  • yes midrange be cared in 200cc

    bksham
    200cc yet simple to maintain n to control the cost under 1lakh sud also be introduced to do flow of bussiness for dealer also. as current model is somewhat premium for common masses of india. overall model seems perfect but to reach midrange commuter company sud focus on cost cutting like 200cc, carburatorated engine instead of f.i, 12L tank, single exaust, weight under 150kg, flat torque under 5500rpm, 5 or 4gears, kick cum self start, speed under 110kpmh, mileage 40 n above. once it's made means it'll grab the gapping market of yamaha rx retro market, presently it's dominant in sports bike. jai mahindra..

    Everything in place except the roar, which got Jawa its distinction. The great roar is now a weak purr like a goat. TOO BAD

  • Twin meter; 200 cc with 50km/ltr is necessary

    Maxwell
    Around 200 cc variant with 50km/ltr is necessary. Kick start is not necessary. Twin meter will be perfect too, with this twin exhaust. Thank God forgetting my Missed guy..

  • The leader is reborn

    Abi
    Don't know why many are still underestimating Jawa. This is a bike which was the pulse of riders years back, and I had a chance to ride one too. It was heaven. Not like an RE which has a lot of flaws in newer versions. Jawa is the king.

  • Jawa is back

    Jatin
    It’s really a great news that Jawa is back, from images, it seems to be great bike. Everything seems to be perfect . I don’t know why they are delaying its launch, as till yet no showrooms have opened yet & they are taking online bookings. Atleast , we need one look, so that we can go ahead & book.

    Modern JAWA

    Omkar Bartakke
    If u compaire with classic Bike is fully fantastic but Price is so high. I suggest to JAWA if u want to challenge ure marketing compatitor so reduce products price and Plan attach rpm meter & tubeless tyre.
