Anand Mahindra provides a glimpse of the Batmobike, a modified Jawa 42 cafe racer
Anand Mahindra, President of Mahindra Group shared a photo of the modified Jawa 42 from his Twitter. He called it ‘Batmobike’ because of the black paint of the motorcycle. Below the modification, the motorcycle is a Jawa 42 and modified by Muhammed Raihan. He has done more than 50 projects on Jawa motorcycles. Usually, the modified motorcycles one sees on Indian roads are Royal Enfields.
This Jawa 42 has been converted into a cafe racer. The motorcycle does not need much modification as it already has a classic design. So the only things that have been changed are the seats, visor and driving ergonomics.
The saddle and hood are designed in metal and the saddle is now a single piece stitched and ribbed pattern. The motorcycle was originally finished in a Lumos Lime colorway and now the entire bike is finished in a glossy black with gold and silver stripes. The rear fender has been repainted in the same color as the motorcycle. So it’s black with yellow stripes. Changes were also made to the rear fender for a cleaner look.

The height of the handlebars has been reduced to create a cafe racer look. The turn signals are also repositioned and a rearview mirror is also provided.
There are no changes to the engine. So it continues to come with a 293 cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine. It produces 2733 Ps and a peak torque output of 27.02 Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It is important to note that it is a single cylinder engine with double exhaust ports. Furthermore, the fins on the engine are for aesthetic purposes only as this is a liquid-cooled engine.
