Expert Verdict

Comfort8

The Jawa Forty-Two is a good-looking neo-retro bike. It has a comfortable riding stance, and its engine performance is also equally good. Loaded with the latest features, the Forty-Two misses out on low-end torque as well as good build quality.

Pros & Cons of JAWA Forty Two

  • Features we admire in this bike

    • Retro design is an eye candy to look
    • Comfortable riding position
    • Engine offers strong punch for fast performance
    • Latest features make it value for money
  • Features that could have been better

    • Engine snatches at low-end
    • Heating of the engine in city traffic
    • Quality is inconsistent

Should I buy the Forty Two?

The Jawa Forty-Two is a roadster bike that is based on the old-school design language of Jawa. It looks cool and it is comfortable to ride as well. Loaded with the latest features like LED lights & Bluetooth connectivity, it is a modern bike. Also, its engine offers good punch in the mid-range, thus making it a good tourer. However, the low-end performance of this engine is weak and it also heats up quickly in the city. We recommend it as an option for the Royal Enfield Bullet 350.

Styling & Comfort 8
  • The design of the Forty-Two is retrieved from the Jawa standard. The bike is based on a retro-modern theme. It has design elements that make it look retro, like the round headlight and low-slung rear. Meanwhile, the latest features like LED lights, and Bluetooth connectivity, make for a modern appearance. With a flat handlebar and bar-end mirrors, it looks cool on the road. Not to mention, the twin exhaust can setup is also good to look at.
  • The riding comfort of the Jawa Forty-Two is moderately satisfying. The flat handlebar is tilted a bit towards the front while the rider's footpegs are set in the centre. Overall, it is comfortable for city riding but on the highway, the riding position might become tiring to ride for long hours.
Engine Performance & Handling 7
  • The short-stroke, liquid-cooled engine is fun to ride. It has a very rich mid-range torque & performance. Also, the engine feels eager to accelerate. But, the low-end torque is compromised and it snatches at lower rpms. Also, it requires effort of consistent shifting within the city to keep it in the powerband. The engine also heats up pretty quickly inside the traffic. However, the 6-speed gearbox is very slick and easy to use.
  • The low centre of gravity and equal weight distribution make the Jawa Forty-Two a good handling bike. It is fun to ride and easy to flick inside the city traffic. On the highway, the straight-line stability is good and it’ll provoke you to go faster. Overall, it feels very easy and confident to ride.
Ride Quality & Braking 8
  • The suspension setup of Forty-Two is pliant and neutral. It is neither stiff nor soft. The bike remains comfortable and confident for most of the parts on the road. Bad roads are handled pretty easily by it. However, it is not a softer suspension but with a pillion, you might feel the tail getting mushy. Overall, we’re satisfied with its ride quality. It is equally good as the Bullet 350
  • In terms of braking, the Forty-Two offers a decent bite. It is not a very strong biting machine but you’ll remain confident on its brakes. The behaviour of the brakes is predictable and the bike stops without creating any fuss even at high speeds.
Features & Safety 8
  • Feature-wise, the Forty-Two is equipped with modern tech like Bluetooth connectivity, SMS/call alerts on the console, a fully digital instrument panel, & LED lights as well. The multi-spoke alloy wheels also look good and offer tubeless tyres.
  • Jawa offers a dual-channel ABS as standard on the Forty-Two. The calibration of it is very well done and the bike feels safer to ride

    The Honda CB350 RS is a direct rival to the Jawa Forty-Two. While the CB350 is costlier to buy, it offers a smoother engine performance and better build quality. The reliability of Honda is well combined with retro design & latest features. The CB350 also has a very good exhaust note. Meanwhile, Jawa offers better value for money and better highway performance. Out of the two, we recommend buying the Honda CB350 RS for its reliable engine & smoother performance.
