I want a bike for daily use in the city and highway. It needs to be easy to ride and have a refined engine. I am confused between the Honda CB 350 RS and the Jawa 42 Bobber.

Autocar India says: In terms of both refinement and ease of riding, the Honda is significantly better than the Jawa 42 Bobber. The Honda’s riding position is natural and the suspension is designed to be comfortable and absorptive. The Honda produces an audible beat from its exhaust, but the engine itself is very refined at all rpms.
In comparison, the Jawa 42 Bobber is designed primarily around its unique and striking single seater bobber design. Apart from its sibling, the Jawa Perak, there is no other motorcycle at this price point in the market which offers these looks. However, this comes at the expense of practicality and comfort, with minimal travel in the rear suspension and no possibility of carrying a pillion. The Jawa is a considerably more powerful and quicker motorcycle than the Honda, but it is nowhere as smooth as the latter, and the motor has noticeable levels of vibration.
