Jawa: The timeless style and iconic character of the original Jawa is reborn in this new Jawa. With an evolutionary aesthetic that retains the authenticity and familiarity of the past – classy, elegant, sophisticated, majestic – this one is tuned for the legacy seekers. The Jawa in its form and function is the quintessential classic with old world character and truly modern performance.

The forty two is meant to appeal to the heart as well as the head.
New Jawa Engine: The 293cc liquid cooled, single cylinder DOHC engine
With a 293cc liquid cooled, single cylinder, DOHC engine, built from the ground up in collaboration with the best of Italian engineering, it is going to be an all new, and at the same time, a classic Jawa experience. It packs 27 bhp and 28 Nm of torque with a generous mid-range and a flat torque curve for an unwavering, consistently powered ride. But at the core of its heart and along the length of its classic lines and with every beat of its signature twin exhaust, it is unmistakably the Jawa you will love. The engine platform is built ready for the BS6 norms.
Sound is a signature trigger for emotions and especially true for motorcycles. The quest for the new 4-stroke Jawa sound took us to Verona, Italy, where a duo of maverick sound engineers, walked with us through all stages right from the origin of the Jawa sound through countless cycles of harmonic pipe combinations and multiple other permutations to discover a sound that was worthy of the new Jawa.
With the lines you can recognise it’s a Jawa. Our new Jawa and Jawa forty two take the legendary story to the next chapter – without losing the original character of the Jawa. Today’s Jawa connects you to the legacy of over 90 years, and it is built with everything that comes with modern engineering. We made sure that a Jawa retains all that is great about the name. One still gets the breath-taking looks on a bike that is dependable enough for everyday use as well as easy and fun to ride just like the old times. The Jawa has been one of the most sought-after motorcycles among the icons of Indian cinema from the 70s through the 90s and can be seen burning the tarmac in some legendary movies. The Jawa brings about the quintessential pedigree of old school motorcycles.
