Bucking the trend of only cosmetic updates, Jawa has made actual mechanical changes to the motorcycle to give it improved performance!

The Jawa 42 Bobber is the only factory Bobber motorcycle in affordable price ranges, with the base price starting at Rs 2.15 lakh, ex-showroom. Jawa has launched a new Black Mirror edition of the motorcycle, priced at Rs 2.25 lakh, ex-showroom, and unlike every other special edition recently, this one gets mechanical changes for improved performance – more on this later.

First we must talk about the name – it has nothing to do with the TV show depicting a grim future, instead it is a reference to the gorgeous mirror-like chrome finish on the top half of the tank, and matte black dominating the rest of the motorcycle. Apart from the colour, there are a few other cosmetic changes such as redesigned gear and engine covers and a new set of diamond-cut alloy wheels.

Coming to the crux of the matter, the mechanical changes, which start with a much larger throttle body, measuring 38mm as opposed to the previous 33mm one. The idling rpm has been lowered to 1,350 from 1,500. To complement these changes, there’s a brand-new fuel map for the Black Mirror.

Rest of the engine remains the same, with the 334cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor pumping out 29.9PS and 32.7Nm, sent to the ground via a six-speed transmission and an assist-and-slipper clutch.

The only reasonable competition to the Jawa 42 Bobber is the Royal Enfield Meteor 350.
