Brand New Jawa Motorcycle Shows Rust On Wheel Rim And Exhaust: Customer Takes To Social Media
Aug 22, 2019 6:53 PM
Jawa Motorcycles are in the news again, and this time for customers complaining about poor build quality. The issue is being faced by multiple owners who have received delivery of their motorcycles over the last two weeks. The company seems to be in the news for right and wrong reasons.
They are back in the news for poor build quality of the bikes. Customers who had received delivery of their motorcycles just a few days ago are now facing serious rust issues.
One such customer is Shailesh Suvarna who got his motorcycle around 20 days ago and has ridden 900kms on it. He has used social media to highlight the issue and has posted some shocking photos of parts rusting all around the bike.
We can tell from the images that there is rust across several parts of the motorcycle. This includes the handle nut, the exhaust pipe, the rims, the disc rotors, and several areas around the chassis. We also see an image where the speedometer was filled with water.
However, there are no second thoughts now since the bike is bought and ridden. The next course of action would be to reach out to the dealer and get the rust fixed.
The owner has contacted the company dealership who has agreed to fix the motorcycle. The dealer will repaint the rusty parts of the bike and replace the parts which have got heavily rusted. We suggest that other affected Jawa owners to do the same.
Jawa has started delivering bikes to their customers after much delay. A couple of weeks ago, Jawa Motorcycles incorporated an online delivery estimator on their website for customers to know the expected delivery date. This estimator however, works only for bookings done before 25 December 2018.
The estimator also works only for customers who had booked online and not for those who booked their motorcycles directly at showrooms. However, the companys' CEO has promised to deliver the bikes faster by increasing the production at the companys' plant in Pithampur and Madhya Pradesh.
Thoughts About The Rust On New Jawa Motorcycles
We know that Classic Legends launched Jawa motorcycles to compete with the 350 series from Royal Enfield's stable. What we did not know is that competition would be literal. All Royal Enfield owners have had big issues with rust, poor build and paint quality, and really bad engine noise. We expected Jawa to change that. Apparently not. Any way, rust checked; just a matter of time before the build and paint quality, and other parameters on the ‘unwanted' checklist are ticked off - we reckon.

TIPS & TUTORIALS
Google started rolling out the new Android Auto earlier this month, and it's an overall improvement. You should have the updated interface already, but we've heard from a number of Android Auto users who haven't seen the update appear automatically. Luckily, there's a quick fix.
The new Android Auto should show up as a notification bubble on the old home screen when it's ready. Tap that, and you'll get a new notification instructing you to unplug and replug your phone to complete the upgrade. That's how it's supposed to happen, at least. For some reason, that notification isn't appearing for everyone. You can force the update in the app settings, though.
To toggle on the new Auto, open the Android Auto app on your phone and go to the settings. Right at the top, there's a toggle to "Try the new Android Auto." Presumably, the new interface will be the only one at some point, but for now, you still have to tap the notification or flip this switch.
MIUI by Xiaomi continues to see regular and active development from the company. Unlike other larger OEMs, Xiaomi gives enthusiast users a chance to try out some of these features through beta releases, before the features make their way to stable releases. For instance, previous MIUI Betas have showcased features such as additional Screen Cast features, Dark Mode Scheduling, new MiLanPro font, an under-keyboard shortcut bar, dual Wi-Fi acceleration, and more. These betas also offer glimpses of features in active development, so we can take an educated guess on what we can see from Xiaomi in the future. The latest MIUI 10 Beta 9.8.20 for the Chinese region indicates that Xiaomi is working on automatically recognizing incoming calls from service vendors, and then ringing the call with a separate ringtone for easier identification.
An APK teardown can often predict features that may arrive in a future update of an application, but it is possible that any of the features we mention here may not make it in a future release. This is because these features are currently unimplemented in the live build and may be pulled at any time by Xiaomi in a future build.
The following strings have been spotted in the Settings app on MIUI 10 Beta 9.8.20:
Identify incoming calls made by service vendors (e.g. food delivery) and use separate ringtones for them Identify services
While these strings were spotted in the Chinese MIUI Beta ROM, we do believe that the feature will make its way to India, eventually. In the past, Xiaomi has partnered with various third-party service vendors in India to localize MIUI and make it more useful to the Indian audience, and a feature like this will be a perfect fit for India. Food delivery services like Zomato, Swiggy and Uber Eats are huge in India, especially in urban areas, thanks to their deep discount models and service discovery methods. A lot of customers, ranging from working individuals to partying teenagers, rely on these services to deliver food to them in a jiffy. A deeper level of integration in MIUI with these services will play out well for the end-users.
How will MIUI know when these service vendors would call, especially when the delivery executives change every time? Our best guess on this is that Xiaomi probably envisages a scenario where these service vendors would share mobile numbers of their delivery executives to Xiaomi. MIUI already includes localized app usage tracking for Digital Wellbeing functionality, so this could be used to determine when a customer is expecting delivery from a particular service. A call from a delivery executive with this connected service could then be recognized, and a different ringtone could be applied to alert the user about the caller and the purpose of the call. This is conjecture, admittedly, so the functionality could very well play out differently when the feature is fully developed.
According to sources, as many as 63 clauses of the Act, which correspond to increase in penalty/fine for traffic rule violation, will be brought into effect on September 1, 2019.
Violating traffic rules is set to get costlier with the amended provisions of the Motor Vehicles coming into effect from September 1, 2019. According to sources, as many as 63 clauses of the Act, which correspond to increase in penalty/fine for traffic rule violation, will be brought into effect starting next month.
As per the amended Act, a fine of Rs 10,000 will be imposed if one fails to give way to emergency vehicles. The same fine will be imposed if a driver is driving despite being disqualified.
The fine for violating traffic rules has also been revised. As of now, the fine in such cases is Rs 100 and with the new provisions, it has been revised to Rs 500. Disobedience of the orders of authorities will attract a minimum penalty of Rs 2,000.
And if you have forgotten your license at home, it would cost you dearly. The fine for driving without license is Rs 5,000. Driving without a copy of insurance will also invite a fine of Rs 2,000.
Heavier penalty will also be levied on those driving beyond the permissible speed limit. As per the bill, over-speeding would invite penalty between Rs 1,000 – Rs 2,000. Not wearing a seat belt while driving is also set to get costlier, with fine up to Rs 1,000.
The penalty is being increased even for two-wheeler riders. If one rides a two-wheeler without wearing a helmet, a fine of Rs 1,000 would be levied.
Ride-hailing aggregators can be fined up to Rs 1 lakh for violating driving licensing conditions and Rs 20,000 for overloading of vehicles.
The fine for rash driving has also been revised and a violator would have to pay an amount between Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000. And if caught for drunken driving, one needs to cough up a hefty fine of Rs 10,000.
