Retro classic bikes in India have become quite popular thanks to the wild popularity of the Royal Enfield bikes. Owning a classic bike gives you a feeling of pride which no other bike can replicate. Indians love it and are not hesitant to pay a little extra to get something unique. Jawa also entered the Indian market competing in the same space but did not become wildly popular due to some local issues. Find out below Jawa 42 transformed into a Scrambler in India.
More about modification
What is a scrambler? A scrambler is an old term for dirt bikes up to 650cc that raced on off-road tracks with low jumps and obstacles. Jawa motorcycles were re-launched in the Indian market a few years ago. Just like the older Jawa, the new one also became popular and these motorcycles have a long waiting period.
Jawa initially had launched Jawa Classic and Jawa 42 and later launched a factory custom bobber Jawa Perak. Starting with the olive green Jawa 42, it gets an alloy wheel. The front forks now have more travel than the stock version. Moving up, the stock headlight has been replaced with an aftermarket projector unit with an LED DRL ring in it. More about Jawa 42 transformed into a Scrambler in India below.
The instrument cluster has also been aligned to the centre of the handlebar. The owner has also modified the handlebar of the Jawa to give it a more upright stance. A custom made radiator grille takes care of the engine’s safety. The other Jawa 42 in the video retains the spoke wheels but gets off-road tyres and has the stock handlebar as well. Apart from that, both motorcycles have similar modifications done to them.
Price of the modification
The cost of modifying Jawa 42 into a scrambler is between Rs 30,000 to Rs 45,000. The overall time required to finish such a project is around 10-15 days. The front mudguard, bend pipe and the exhaust all get a matte black finish. The rear fender has also been slightly chopped and an aftermarket LED tail light has been installed too.
All these modifications increase the overall look of the bike and help it stand apart. Service and Maintenance network of Jawa bikes are still not upto the standards the company needs to work hard to do something about it.
