Jawa 42: changes you can see

The new Jawa 42 offers a selection of new paint finishes. Customers can choose between Orion Red, Sirius White and AllStar Black. A gray classic sports stripe runs the entire length of the motorcycle to underline the sporty appearance of the 42 in its DNA. The new 42 rides on 13-spoke light-alloy wheels fitted with tubeless tires. The Classic Sports personality is reinforced by the black painted handlebar end mirrors. While the speedometer console continues to be a unit with a pod offset, it is now equipped with an odometer. The company has also redesigned the seat shell, offering better cushioning for greater comfort.

A lot of work has gone into the engine. The engine now offers more power and torque. The exhaust note has also changed.

Jawa 42: engine upgrade

Jawa has also properly upgraded the engine. The liquid-cooled 293cc fuel-injected engine is retuned and delivers 27.33 hp and 27.02 Nm of torque. It is the first single cylinder engine to use cross-port technology, which increases the engine’s volumetric efficiency, allows for better charge and exhaust flow, and results in better power and torque output. In addition, the engine now has a repositioned lambda sensor that monitors internal and external variables even more efficiently. The throttle response became clearer through improved refueling. In addition, the suspension has been retuned to provide better handling and more space.

Jawa 42: customization options

Classic Legends has also developed a fly screen and headlamp grille that are sold separately through its dealers. The range of accessories has been expanded to include tailor-made saddlebags for all Jawa bikes. The light alloy wheels, on the other hand, are also available from dealers and fit all Jawa bikes.
