The motor is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.

Solely based on pricing, the Royal Enfield bikes are clearly the cheapest among all, while the Jawa and the Dominar are the most expensive among all. Having said that, the Dominar is also the most powerful on paper and is also equipped with a host of modern features like slipper clutch, dual channel ABS, LED headlamps, and more. Bridging the gab is Jawa's more modern offering, Forty Two, which makes the most sense, It comes with additional features over the Royal Enfield bikes like liquid cooling, single channel ABS, and few others. That said we still have to test the bikes against each other in real world conditions to to find out which one is the best.
