    The reviewer looks odd while sitting on this, bike. I guess for tall riders not something one would find easy. Though the bike looks dope.

    Glad I waited for the alloy speck Jawa, now I'm booking this.. but I don't think I will let my 1976 RE 500 go.

    Very good review sir❤️ Which one should be better buying between jawa42 2.1 vs highness cb350. I m confused between above two bike as both bikes price are at same price level. I m 5'5" height and body weight is 60kg, so I m comfortable on both bike. Feedback from utuber is that engine refinement is not up to mark of jawa42, but hawa 42 2.1 hv improvement. Pl provide ur feedback which one will hv better buy.

    This jawa 42 2.1 also will fail like jawa Perak because there is no proper petrol indicator,gear indicator how would we do long riding and touring without petrol information..

    Really nice looking bike.

  • PRD

    The bike is gorgeous in white. Also, keep the overall looks, slim down and shorten the rear fender, overhaul the console, give it a more refined parallel twin engine, double the power & torque figures, price it around 3 lakhs and this thing will smoke the RE interceptor 650 on Indian roads. Of course all of it is provided more showrooms are opened, quality and availability of service centers is uplifted and spares are readily available.

    Only the headlight is good rest all even the alloy is just waste.. Alloys has to suit the bikes too or else don't make it sorry to say..... Just my opinion. All time favorite is jawa 42 old one perfect in all way.

    It's looking good but in the deep turnings the dual smoke exaster might touch the road and it may lead to accidents

    Looks stunning, I like the white color the best, the alloy wheels going very well, it stands out from all in this segment. Only the instrument cluster and the rear mudguard need a revision! I loved it personally!! Java has set the benchmark, let’s see what the other competitors has to offer for us in months to come!!😊😊

  • Prudhwiraj B
    Prudhwiraj B

    Those alloys and color is the main attraction but they need to increase the ground clearance its too low ,the legs position is 90 degree it doesn't feel like cruiser ,whatever they need to change the cluster its totally reverse at high speed we can't see them properly ,highness and classic are still better.

  • hardik chhasatia

    Why won't they change the exhaust noise? It sounds like a moped right now, it would be a huge plus if they can give a good exhaust noise


    Love 🔥
