Classic Legends has launched the 2021 Jawa 42 at a starting price of Rs 1,83,942 (ex-showroom Delhi). It is priced at a premium of Rs 10,000 over the older model. The new Jawa 42 comes with three new colour options, new alloy wheels and a windscreen. The motorcycle will compete in the fast-growing cruiser segment against rivals like Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and Honda H’ness CB 350 in the Indian market.
The eye-catching update is the new colour schemes namely Orion Red, Sirius White and AllStar Black. The aesthetic appeal is enhanced by the all-black treatment for the engine, bar-end mirrors, front suspension, exhaust outlets and rear springs. Further, the grey classic sports stripe running across the body lends a sporty look to the motorcycle. The 2021 Jawa 42 rides on a new set of 13-spoke alloy wheels which are shod with tubeless tyres. The speed console continues to be a single pod offset mounted unit but it now comes equipped with a trip meter.
The redesigned seat pan and cushioning will take the riding experience to a new level. On the other hand, the suspension and frame set-up has been re-tuned resulting in the better ground experience while improving the handling abilities of the New Jawa 42. The bike will be powered by an improved 293cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine with a power output of 27 bhp and 27.02Nm of peak torque. The manufacturer claims the engine will give more consistent performance and clean emissions due to the repositioning of the lambda sensors.
To increase the bike’s quotient further, Classic Legends will make flyscreen and headlamp grille available at the authorized dealerships. The range of accessories is expanded further with the addition of custom made saddlebags. The alloy wheels that come standard on Jawa 42 will also be sold separately at all dealerships for customers to add to their existing motorcycles.
Speaking on the new Jawa 42, Ashish Singh Joshi, CEO – Classic Legends released a statement. He said “Last year saw us coming up with the BS6 versions. We didn’t stop at that and outdid ourselves with even bettering the performance and feel of our motorcycles, calling it the 2.1. We have made the exhaust note throatier and even more alluring, enhanced the seat and fine-tuned the cross port engine for added punch. Our customers have always used the 42 as a canvass to express their creativity. Inspired by that, we have added three new colour schemes with ‘classic sports’ stripes, alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and trip meter as standard fitment & fly-screen and headlamp grille as accessories. The technological updates will be available throughout the Jawa and forty-two range and the customers will have the option of choosing the new accessories as well.”
