Barely a few days back we first saw a slightly different Forty Two test mule under tests on our Indian roads. And today, Jawa has officially announced its arrival.

First introduced in 2018, Jawa has launched the 2021 Forty Two in India. It gets a lot of cosmetic and some mechanical changes. But before we talk about them it should be noted that the older Forty Two will continue to be on sale alongside the new model.

The 2021 Forty Two looks a lot more roadster-like and comes in three new flashier colors – Orion Red, AllStar Black and Sirius White. There is a grey colored stripe on all the variants which adds to the overall sporty styling.

Instead of spoke wheels, the new model wears 13-spoke alloy wheels and tyres that are tubeless.

Among other features, there are sportier bar-end mirrors, a tripmeter and a throatier exhaust note. Comfort levels are claimed to be better with a redesigned seat pan and cushioning. Jawa has also worked on the suspension and frame which has resulted in a higher ground clearance and better handling (company’s claim).

Moreover, there are tweaks to the engine as well and the new model now produces 27.33 PS of peak power which is 0.82 PS higher than before. Torque has remained unchanged at 27.05 Nm. Jawa says that the overall punch has improved with an enhanced mid-range.
