Interestingly, bar-end mirrors have been swapped to handle-bar mounted mirrors with this update.
New Yezdi Roadster – Improved rider’s triangle
With Yezdi Roadster, Classic Legends has updated quite a bit, including the rider’s triangle. However, this updated model is sold alongside the previous model. So, buyers get to choose their jam. Updated model comes with 155mm front set rider footpegs along with a taller handlebar.
This new setup ensures a more relaxed riding posture that may potentially reduce fatigue on longer rides. The company mentions that, they fettled with rider’s triangle based on customer feedback, which is a commendable move. Yezdi mentioned a new exhaust with a rorty note as well.
