Looking for a cruiser.

I am looking for a cruising bike and am confused between the Jawa Forty Two and the Royal Enfield 350X.

AAA We’ve only just ridden the Jawas as pre-production motorcycles, and while the initial verdict is good, we still need to see what the quality levels are like on the final, production-spec bike. The bigger issue, however, is that the waiting period is huge and Classic Legends has announced that the bikes are sold out until September 2019. If you don’t think you can wait that long, your only other viable options at the price point lie with Royal Enfield. The Thunderbird 350X is one of the latest launches from Royal Enfield, and we recommend that you spend extra money to purchase the ABS-equipped model.
