Jawa or Royal Enfield?
Reasons to by Jawa
Jawa motorcycle range with its pricing and styling is in direct competition for the Royal Enfield 350 range but if we were to pick one for comparison purpose it has to be the new ABS enabled classic 350 Edition that is the closest rival.

1. Performance-wise both motorcycles are powered by a single cylinder engine but the similarities end there. The Classic 350 has a 346 CC one that produces 19.8 hp of power and 28 nm of torque whereas Jawa engine though is of a smaller capacity at 293 CC, still produces 27 hp and 28 nm of torque.

2. Jawa has a liquid-cooled engine with a double overhead camshaft making it modern and more reliable.

3. Coming to the gearbox the Jawa has a six-speed one while the Classic 350 has a 5-speed one.

4. Jawa has a very distinct advantage by being 22 kilograms lighter than the Classic 350 giving Jawa the advantage in terms of easier handling.

Reasons to buy Royal Enfield
1. The resounding thump from the Indori Botal exhaust tail-pipe on an empty road during a lazy morning makes up for a picturesque dream for any Royal Enfield enthusiast. No matter whichever model you opt for; a Royal Enfield will always attract attention.

2. Considering almost every Royal Enfield motorcycle weighs at above 190 kilos, with the rider
weighing at an average of 75 kilos, these motorcycles stay planted on the road easily.

3. Surprisingly, even though the motorcycles have larger engines of 350cc and 500cc, the mileage for most of the vehicles is between 35-40kmpl.

4. Almost every RE which is operating on the roads today, there is a sizeable chunk of them which has had customizations on it, whether it be a full-fledged cruiser having double-sided panniers, windshields, auxiliary headlamps, exhaust tailpipes, and what not. The best part about the customization is, anyone can do it, even your roadside mechanic.

5. Royal Enfield also has a whole separate event for its custom motorcycles.

6. The one motorcycle which demands a close-to-market price even when it is being sold as a used one is the Royal Enfield, for e.g., a standard Royal Enfield 350 bought for Rs. 1,30,000 will still
sell for Rs. 1 lakh even after 5-6 Years (provided you do maintain it properly).

Real Life Example: A friend of mine who purchased Royal Enfield Thunderbird (for around 70-75K) some time when it was launched, sold it to someone after 10 years for Rs. 80,000/- (as the price of new Thunderbird bikes has increased to more than Rs. 1.50 lakhs).

To sum it up in the automotive market of today, everyone knows about the high resale value of a Royal Enfield.

With the sales number breaking records after records, it's agreeable that it's one of the most sought-after motorcycles in the Indian motorcycle market right now.

Finally, as far as the looks are concerned, then it's never going to be easy to make a call between these two. The Jawa with its twin exhaust and styling definitely has competition from the Classic 350 which has a strong macho look.
