It's the battle of the beasts. No reviews. We’re just wondering out loud how a conversation between a Jawa and a Royal Enfield would be like…

RE: Ah, guess who it is…the shorty himself!

Jawa: Yeah, yeah. Shorty with a better ground clearance that is..:P

RE: Oh, looks like the comparisons have already begun. Please don’t get me started on my legendary legacy…

Jawa: A legacy which couldn’t solve the vibration issues yet? Haha. No thanks!

RE: Ahem, a legacy that has spread across the globe, nonetheless. Let’s talk size. I weigh in at a massive 192 kg. How about you?

Jawa: Sense over size, mate. Just at 179 kg I’m a lot more maneuverable. And given my saddle height, more people find me comfortable. No more tip toeing for some lady bikers as well!

RE: Don’t talk about ‘comfort’ with those straight seats you’ve got. You must be making a lot of butts sore! My rider and pillion seats are perfecto to the dot! That feel of being mounted on an

RE:… you can’t match that little fella.

Jawa: Maybe because, you were enjoying a non-competition phase until now. But now that I’ve arrived..don’t even get me started on Benelli Imperiale…

RE: But Royal Enfield will be Royal Enfield. The name itself…

Jawa: Oh please, can’t you stop boasting about yourself. Let’s talk real shit. Let’s talk power.

RE: 19.8 hp. 

Jawa: Are you serious! Hehe. At 350 cc, you’ve got only 19.8 hp?

RE: Yeah. So? What about you?

Jawa: 27 hp, my old man. That too with a 293cc engine! My torque’s 28 nm. Don’t say yours is less…


Jawa: Oh my god, it’s less?

RE: Nope. It’s same as yours. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve got the ‘thump’.

Jawa: I’ve got the looks to flaunt it too… didn’t you notice my two silencers? Pretty cool, right? 

RE: Still, I’ve taught India how to ride…so many people go to Leh, Ladakh and other far corners exploring…

Jawa: My engine is liquid cooled unlike yours which is air cooled. And I make for a good city commute as well…

RE: I guess we can settle this only one way. With hands. I mean our ‘handle bars’.

Jawa: Cool. Mine are wider and gives more control, hehe.

The end.
