Updated Jawa Classic and Forty-Two launched

By Aditya Jadhav | on July 13, 2021

The Jawa Classic and the Jawa Forty-Two now get revised engine internals and reworked mechanicals. These changes could translate into improved rideability of both modern classics.

Jawa has updated the Classic and the Forty-Two for the model year 2021 (MY21). The two motorcycles get similar updates to what was observed on the Jawa 42 version 2.1. The MY21 Classic and Forty-Two now get similar engine internals as the 42 version 2.1. This has resulted in a mild increase in the power output, but the torque number has seen a subtle drop. The power is now rated at 27bhp and 27.02Nm of torque.

Expect an improvement in the rideability and throttle response of the MY21 Jawa Classic and the Forty-Two. The engine continues to be the same 293cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled unit, mated to a six-speed gearbox. Classic Legends also claims to have re-tuned the exhaust system of both motorcycles.

Other cycle parts have been revised as well. The suspension units come with subtle tweaks to complement the revised twin-down pipe cradle. The seats have been redesigned as well.

All the updates have come at a nominal price hike of Rs 1,200 across variants of the Jawa Classic and the Forty-Two. The prices for the Jawa Forty-Two range between Rs 1.64 and 1.73 lakh. The new prices for the Jawa Classic start at Rs 1.78 lakh, for the single-channel ABS version, and go up to Rs 1.86 lakh, for the dual-channel ABS version. All prices are ex-showroom.
