Mahindra brought the legendary Jawa brand back in India through classic legends. After long deliveries times and patiently waiting for their Jawa, customers now have started modifying their Jawa for according to their needs. We have one such example of a modified Jawa 42 in Lumos Lime colour with various modifications.
First and foremost the bike is fitted with a customized seat. The new seat is wider and offers better cushioning than the stock one. For longer rides, it will be boon to the rider and the pillion. The seat costs around Rs 2,500. Then the bike also gets a set of bar-end mirrors which enhance the overall look of the bike. The bar end mirror set costs about Rs 500.
Coming to the most exciting modification, which is the exhaust sound. While the bike still has Jawa’s signature dual exhaust system, they have modified the sound of the exhaust by removing and resetting the baffles for better sound output. The bike sounds more bassy and louder than the stock system.
There are no changes in the engine department and it remains the stock 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder unit which makes 27 bhp and 28 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. You also have an option for Dual Channel ABS, while single-channel ABS is standard. The bike weighs 170kg and gets a 14-litre fuel tank. Priced at Rs 1.63 Lakhs (ex-showroom) Jawa 42 competes with Royal Enfield Classic 350.
