However, many customers have taken to twitter to express their diepleasure and to announce the cancellation of their orders due to a lack of communication from Jawa Motorcycles and the delay in delivery of these bikes many of which were booked way back in November following the unveiling of the new bikes.

Speaking to Rushlane, multiple dealers stated that there was no communication from Jawa Motorcycles or Classic Legends regarding the timeline of the expected deliveries. The automotive blog also reached out to many disgruntled owners who reported the same issue, with many who booked their bikes way back in November, still not sure when they'll get their new bikes.

Classic legends has not yet revealed the total number of bookings it has recieved for the newly reborn Jawa Motorcycles but the motorcycle manufacturer has revealed that motorcycles are booked all the way till September 2019. Rushlane claims that dealers are still accepting bookings, though the delivery period being quoted to customers is the final month of the year, December. 

Many customers though have had enough of the long wait and have put in requests to cancel their orders for either the Jawa or the Jawa 42. As Jawa was busy tooting its horn on twitter about the first deliveries of the new Jawa lineup, some customers have taken to twitter to announce their order cancellations due to a lack of communication from Jawa about deliveries. Other just vented their fury at the absolute levels of silence from the brand regarding their orders, with some even suggesting that the resurrected motorcycle brand should not have taken so many orders if it knew it couldn't keep up with the demand.

This lack of communication and the delivery delays is something the Jawa motorcycles and Mahindra should look into. The older Jawas are still revered by the Indian motorcycling community and reborn brand must address its issues if it doesn't want to risk alienating a readymade audience.
