2021 Jawa forty-two launched in India
Classic Legends launched Forty-Two motorcycle in India in the year 2018 and now the company has launched 2021 Jawa forty-two model with cosmetic updates along with new paint scheme and host of new features. The updated version of the popular motorcycle has been launched at Rs. 1.84 lakh (ex-showroom) in Indian markets. Let’s take a quick look at what makes the Jawa forty-two model different from the Forty-Two.
Commenting on the new arrival, Ashish Singh Joshi, CEO, Classic Legends, said, “Last year saw us coming up with the BS6 versions. We didn’t stop at that and outdid ourselves with 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 Forty Two 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 and 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.”
In terms of appearance, the 2021 Jawa forty-two now comes in three new colour options: Sirius White, All-Star Black and Orion Red and the fuel tank sports a wide racing stripe. The Jawa 42 retains the basic design we’re all familiar with, but the suspension, engine casing, twin exhausts and cycle parts now sport an all-black theme. The new bike gets alloy wheels in contrast to spoked wheels from the previous model. The tyres are tubeless. The new wheels will be available as an accessory for Classic Jawa customers and older Forty-Two owners. Classic Legends has also come up with a small flyscreen and headlamp grille that will be separately sold across its dealerships. The range of accessories has further been expanded with custom made saddlebags and stays. For better rider comfort the company claims that the seat pan has been redesigned, and the seat cushion is new as well.
With the 42, Jawa has eliminated the catalytic converter positioned underneath the bike, replacing it with two smaller catalytic convertors located near where the exhausts sprout from the engine. This new Jawa has also lost a kilo in weight, now weighing 171kg. The bike gets 293cc, single-cylinder, four-valve liquid-cooled engined which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. There have also been some changes within the engine that have resulted in a small increase in power – it’s up by 0.8hp. The engine produces 27 bhp of power and 27Nm of peak torque.
According to the company, all the mechanical and comfort-related improvements you see on this bike will be rolled out soon on the normal Forty Two and the Jawa Classic.
