It is a motorcycle that combines retro charm in a modern day ride

Verdict – The Jawa comes in 2 variants, while the single-channel ABS version is priced under Rs. 2 lakhs you will have to shell a little above Rs. 2 lakhs for the dual-channel ABS model. The styling is brilliant, built quality feels decent, the ergonomics are likeable with very good riding dynamics too. But the motor does not have that outright performance nor is the motorcycle comfortable for longer runs. It, however, makes up for a good city bike while it is perfect for those who want to relive the golden Jawa moments from back in time. With a little more comfort and some extra hardware on-board, it would be a lot more appealing for the millennials who crave for the classic retro look.

Boderline OCD kicked-in yet?

What’s Cool

* Jawa has an attractive classic retro design
* Riding dynamics are on point with perfect ergonomics
* Engine has a great low-end and mid-range, perfect for city duties

What’s Not So Cool

* Clutch is too heavy and adds a lot of fatigue
* Riding comfort is very less even for the pillion
* The instrument cluster is just too basic and difficult to read
