Classic Legends recently began the delivery of BS6 models of Jawa and Jawa Forty Two through its dealership network across the country. Both models are now available for display, test rides and bookings at Jawa dealerships. Both Jawa and Jawa Forty Two continue to come with the 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, DOHC engine. Prices for the Jawa start from 1.73 lakh (ex-showroom) for the single-channel ABS variant to Rs 1.83 lakh (ex-showroom) for the dual-channel ABS one. The Forty Two starts at Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs 1.69 lakh (ex-showroom).
This engine is the world’s first single-cylinder engine that uses the cross port configuration and develops similar power and torque to the BS4 configuration. This tech also helps the motorcycles retain their characteristic twin exhaust identity and meet the stricter BS6 emission standards while retaining similar power and torque numbers.
With the world’s first Cross Port configuration on a single-cylinder engine, the Jawa’s newly positioned lambda sensor monitors internal and external variables even more efficiently to gives consistent performance and cleaner emissions regardless of any road condition.
The seat has been reengineered with a new seat pan as well as cushioning translating to more comfort over longer rides. In the cosmetic department, the chrome plating now comes with the backing of rigorous testing rated at two and a half times the industry standard.
Both Jawa models continue to sport best in class braking systems equipped with (single & dual channel) ABS by Continental. In addition, there have been a host of changes under the skin right from the tone of the horn to a slicker gearshift.
