Jawa Motorcycles was one of the renowned bikes and since the time it was introduced once again in the Indian market in 2018, it got a good response from the customers. Jawa had introduced their iconic Jawa and Jawa 42 when it initially launched. Now, as industry is switching from BS4 to BS6, Jawa Motorcycles launched the BS6 versions of Jawa and Jawa 42 from Rs 1.60 lakhs.
Jawa has just launched the BS6 compliant Jawa and Forty Two. Prices of the classic Jawa have gone up from Rs 1.64 lakh to Rs 1.73 lakh for the single-channel ABS variant and from Rs 1.73 lakh to Rs 1.82 lakh for the dual-channel ABS model. For the single-channel ABS Forty Two, prices have increased from Rs 1.55 lakh to between Rs 1.60 lakh and Rs 1.65 lakh, based on the colour scheme. Similarly for the dual-channel ABS Forty Two, prices have hiked from Rs 1.64 lakh to between Rs 1.69 lakh and Rs 1.74 lakh. The Jawa is being offered in three colour options and you will need to pay almost Rs 1,000 extra for the Maroon shade.
Unlike the BS4 model, Jawa is now commanding a premium on some specific colour options for the Forty-Two. For example, for Comet Red, Nebula Blue, and Galactic Green, you will need to pay an additional Rs 5,000. On the other hand, the Lumos Lime demands Rs 4,000 more over the standard price. The additional premium for different colour options is applicable to the dual-channel ABS models. The company says that the 293cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine on the two motorcycles now feature cross port technology that helps in the motorcycles in retaining the twin exhaust identity and meet emission standards. With the BS6 compliance, there is no change in power and torque figures on the two bikes.
