The 42 Bobber is the second bobber in the Jawa range. They already have the Perak in their lineup but it is currently Jawa’s flagship. The Perak may not sell in huge numbers because it lacks practicality, but it still has a cult following for its bobber style. People who can’t afford the Perak or only want a bobber for occasional weekend outings might prefer the 42 Bobber over the Perak.
The Jawa 42 Bobber has a minimalist body, chopped fenders, a low single seat, big tires and unique paint schemes. The headlight is still a round unit, which is a good thing, there’s a new handlebar, new fuel tank, clock console and an all new seat.
The new fuel tank has sculpted knee recesses with tank pads to add a retro touch and help the rider grip the tank. The fender and side panels are finished in gloss black so the bike’s paint scheme can stand out more.
The 42 Bobber uses a 334cc engine that produces 30.64Ps of peak power and 32.74Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Jawa also tweaked the suspension setup of the bobber.
