Jawa Motorcycles has launched a new top-of-the-line version of its popular offering, the 42 Bobber, in the Indian market today. Called the Black Mirror, the all-new model carries a price tag of Rs 2.25 lakh (ex-showroom). Following the latest overhaul, the motorcycle now sports a new look with diamond-cut alloy wheels. Recently, the firm also changed the 42 Bobber's image through its official website and social media pages ahead of the formal launch. According to Jawa, the cruiser comes with innovative cutting-edge technologies, which enable users to have a comfortable ride. With this, the 42 Bobber range is now offered in a total of 4 alluring colours, including Jasper Red Dual Tone, Moonstone White, Mystic Copper, and Black Mirror. The bookings for the model are currently underway at all Jawa Yezdi Motorcycles dealerships and the brand's official website.
Sharing his thoughts on the launch, Ashish Singh Joshi, CEO of Jawa Yezdi Motorcycles, said, ‘With the successful launch of Jawa 42 Bobber last year, we further strengthened our dominance in the Bobber segment. The Bobber stable from our factory custom portfolio has enjoyed an ardent fan following from the riding community in India. The kind of love we received for the 42 Bobber made us push our boundaries in design and engineering to deliver the all-new Jawa 42 Bobber Black Mirror. Bobbers embody the essence of individuality and distinctiveness; they are an emotional purchase, and the new Jawa 42 Bobber Black Mirror is a fine example of why Bobbers are so special. The meticulous attention to detail, combined with the unique design language, makes it a true standout.’
Jawa 42 Bobber Black Mirror: New Updates
Given the full-black finish of the body, the fuel tank’s chrome finish offers an excellent contrasting look. The Black Mirror also gets diamond-cut alloy wheels, unlike other trims’ spoked wheels, which not only give it a factory-custom look but also add the ease of tubeless tyres. Along with the cosmetic enhancements, the Black Mirror continues with the internal engine modifications that were first revealed in other variants in May this year. The idle RPM has been decreased from 1,500 to 1,300, while the throttle bodies' size was increased from 33mm to 38mm. It also features other improvements like updated fuel map and redesigned gear and engine covers.
