Jawa 42 Design And Style

Jawa 42 Design And Style

The new Jawa 42 motorcycle brings back the classic retro design of the 50s. The motorcycle uses clean lines, polished chrome and rounded headlamps. It also comes with the teardrop-shaped fuel tank with the ‘Jawa’ badging on either side, which adds character to the overall design.

The side profile of the Jawa 42 comes with a swept-back design similar to the other Jawa model, with the wide seats and long silencers. The rear of the Jawa 42 comes with a small tail lamp set-up, just above the number plate. The name of the motorcycle is also hand-painted just above the tail lamps, which adds to the retro character while the twin-exhaust pipes add to the drama.
