Voltage regulator died at about 260.000 kilometers.
It's not a motorcycle that everyone is going to love. It's a cheap motorcycle, slow, noisy and has some vibrations.
But for me it's an ideal motorcycle. For people with short budgets, it's a decent motorcycle and a great option.
I find it very reliable, robust and strong (it has already 375.000 km) and I never had to walk.
Most of the bike is made of steel (something quite rare for these days, in which everything is quite plastic).
Maintenance is simple and cheap. Most of it can be done at home.
Although it's slow, rough, hard and rustic, I'm very glad I bought it. It has almost already 20 years old and still is in a perfect condition.
I would say Jawa is better quality than cheap models of Yamaha or Honda (such as CBX250 and YBR250). And much better than any Chinese motorcycle.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
