Java Yezdi asserts its leadership in the ‘Factory Customs’ segment with the attractive, new Java 42 Bobber.
Pune, the year was 2018! When Java Yezdi Motorcycles announced its comeback with three new Java models, the Perak model grabbed the most attention, due to its dark look, mysterious ride and unconventional styling. Jawa Yezdi Motorcycles strengthens dominance in the factory custom segment with the stunning new Jawa 42 Bobber
Formally introduced a year later, the Java Perak was the flagship in the ‘Factory Custom’ segment in the country. It became the choice of bikers as soon as it was introduced in the market, developed its own dedicated fan base, gave people the option of getting a custom motorcycle based on the Java and guaranteed a factory-build.
Fast forward to today and it’s time for yet another ‘Factory Custom’ model to join the Java Yezdi Motorcycles fleet. Now there’s the Java 42, which will get the factory custom treatment as the all-new Java 42 Bobber.
Aimed at taking bobber and factory custom culture to new heights in India, the new motorcycle will be available in three glossy colors – Mystic Copper, Moonstone White and Dual Tone Jasper Red. Along with the design and styling exercise, the all-new 42 Bobber also features convenience and technological features to enhance the ‘Factory Custom’ experience.
The new motorcycle is priced ex-showroom Delhi at Rs. 2,06,500 and will be available for test ride and delivery at Jawa Yezdi Motorcycles dealerships across the country starting next week.
Classic legends unveil new motorcycles CEO Ashish Singh Said, “The new 42 Bobber is a combination of success stories for us. The Java 42 is our exceptional take on modern retro motorcycles, which clicked among the youth.
This is one of our best selling models. With Perak we created an entirely new ‘Factory Custom’ segment in the country and its popularity and fan base is no secret. The new 42 Bobber combines both the worlds of performance and personality of a Bobber with the youthful energy and vibrancy of the 42. With this our aim is to provide riders with unique, stylish and awesome custom motorcycles.”
While the Perak was introduced to dominate the dark, the all-new 42 Bobber has a special approach. The highlight of the new motorcycle is the combination of color and shine, while keeping true to the hallmarks of the Bobber – minimalist bodywork, chopped fenders, low single seat and thick tyres.
The Java 42 Bobber will get a completely new styling package, which is attractive as well as effective and follows the minimalist best features that the Bobber is famous for. Starting from the front, it will get new round headlamps and independent clock console, new handlebar, new fuel tank and completely redesigned seats.
The new fuel tank has a comfortable knee pad, which will add a modern-retro touch while also offering grip while riding. The fenders and side panels have a gloss black finish to complement the new colors.
The independent clock console and headlamp unit with a clean package are inspired by the 42, but the front end is nicely sleek and sharp to create a tough look. A digital clock console with a contrasting LCD screen will offer all the essential information and provide excellent visibility from the saddle. The lighting is LED all around and the motorcycle will also get new switchgear to control these functions.
The floating seat is a completely new unit with a redesigned seat pan, cushioning and upholstery. This new seat 42 will form the basis for the Bobber’s enhanced features. A lot of effort has gone into matching the seating posture, which is interesting, comfortable and varied to suit the rider’s preferences. A new handlebar, new forward foot controls (food pegs and levers) and seat offer a new rider feel. The seat will vary from 2-step adjustable, which can move forward and backward, as per the rider’s preference. The result is a more comfortable riding posture, which puts you in the mood for some thrilling riding, which is what a bobber is all about!
Talking about the thrilling ride, the 42 Bobber carries on the legacy of the Perak’s 334cc engine, which produces 30.64PS of power and 32.74Nm of torque, mated to a slick 6-speed transmission. Identification through the rev range results in similar performance.
Whether riding in the city or on the open highways, the 42 Bobber commands the attention of its riders. The now competitive chassis will deliver an even better experience with the return suspension and recalibrated brakes. Coming to the brakes, the 42 Bobber comes standard with the excellent Continental Dual Channel ABS.
All these features result – a motorcycle that lives up to the ‘Meander’ brand campaign. This 42 is ideal for getting the thrill of a bobber. While Meander has the geographical context of moving from one place to another without a fixed plan,
Then it was also used in reference to the mind, in which the mind constantly moves from one thought to another as you ride. Ride on a whim, ride on a dream or ride for fun – the 42 Bobber is a motorcycle built to ride the way you enjoy it.
