The moment of truth is here for #JawaMotorcycles. We were audacious and planned a 100 showrooms nationwide before starting delivery - that's being done in record time by March 3rd week. Fourth week onwards, we will start delivery across the country as per the booking queue!— Anupam Thareja (@reach_anupam) March 12, 2019
Bookings for the Jawa and Jawa 42 commenced online at the time of launch. Jawa later confirmed that both motorcycles have been booked till September 2019. However, the brand did not mention the exact number of bookings received, although the number is said to be significant.

The tweet from the founder also states that by the 3rd week of March, Jawa Motorcycles would have set up 100 dealerships across the country — here are the locations of some of the Jawa dealerships across India. In terms of deliveries; once started Jawa dealerships will call the customers a week in advance to deposit the full amount for their motorcycles.
Jawa introduced two motorcycles: Jawa and Jawa 42 in November 2018 priced at Rs 1.69 lakh and Rs 1.55 lakh, respectively. Both prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). Both motorcycles come with a retro design with clean lines and minimalistic styling features — read our first look review of the Jawa here.
Both motorcycles are powered by the same 293cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It produces 27bhp and 28Nm of peak torque mated to a six-speed gearbox. This is the same engine as seen on the Mahindra Mojo, however, it has been tuned differently to provide better low-end torque.
Both motorcycles come with standard telescopic front forks and gas-charged dual shock absorber suspension set up at the rear. Braking is handled by a single 280mm disc up front and a 153mm disc at the rear. The front brakes are further supported by a single-channel ABS system — read our first look review of the Jawa 42 here.
