New Yezdi Roadking 650cc RenderThe upcoming Yezdi Roadking could utilise the 652cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine from BSA Goldstar instead of the 334cc unit from Jawa
Yezdi brand made a resounding comeback to the Indian two-wheeler space earlier this month which involved the launch of three new motorcycles. These included Adventure, Scrambler and Roadster, each brand name denoting their characteristic and class of motorcycles.
However, we expected the Roadking moniker to make a comeback since it was the primary seller for Yezdi back in the 1980s and 90s. In fact, Classic Legends, maker of Jawa and Yezdi motorcycles in India, has also filed a trademark for the ‘Roadking’ name.
Yezdi Roadking To Launch Next
New report reveals that a modern interpretation of the classic Yezdi Roadking is currently under development. This was confirmed by Anupam Thareja, Co-founder of Classic Legends. Thareja added that the motorcycle will be based on a bespoke architecture different from the dual-cradle frame underpinning current Yezdi models.
The upcoming Roadking will be the brand’s flagship model and could sit at the top of the Yezdi line-up. While the upcoming iteration of Roadking will surely be a modern affair, Classic Legends would hold onto some classic retro styling as it did with the Jawas and the new Yezdis.

Bigger Source of Power
Since Roadking will be based on a new platform and will be a flagship model, it is also believed to get a new heart. In all likelihood, Yezdi could borrow the 652cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which recently made its debut in BSA Goldstar 650.
This engine is good enough to make 45 bhp and 55 Nm of peak torque. The motor is linked with a 5-speed gearbox via a slipper and assist clutch. For reference, BSA is an iconic British motorcycle brand that was revived by Classic Legends last year.
The 650cc mill should be an automatic choice since Classic Legends would want to utilise this engine and platform in multiple models across different brands to optimise its investment costs. If indeed, Roadking will be powered by this motor, it will be a direct rival to the 650cc Twins from Royal Enfield- Interceptor and Continental GT.
While its looks will be retro, the new Roadking will be laced with a piece of modern equipment comprising features like all-LED lighting, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB charger, a semi-digital instrument cluster, multiple riding modes, and navigation. Hardware configurations are also expected to be similar to BSA Goldstar.
There is no clear indication of the exact launch timeline of Roadking. But unlike most others, Classic Legends have been faster at launching new motorcycles. Considering that the BSA 650 is already out in the market, Yezdi 650 Roadking should not take long to make its debut. If not later this year, Roadking 650 could probably debut next year, to celebrate the 1st anniversary of Yezdi’s revival.

Yezdi Roadster. Image – Biker Prakash ChoudharyBoth Yezdi Roadster and Royal Enfield Meteor closely match each other’s specs and prices
Classic Legends recently brought the Yezdi brand back to life by launching three motorcycles under its anvil- Adventure, Scrambler and Roadster. All three bikes hold distinct identities in the brand’s lineup. With this launch, Classic Legends has thrown in another dice to take on the supremacy of Royal Enfield in the 250-500cc motorcycle segment.
While Adventure locks horns with Royal Enfield Himalayan, Scrambler will rival the upcoming Scram 411 from the Chennai-based bikemaker. On the other hand, Yezdi Roadster appears to take on Meteor 350. This story focuses on how both these motorcycles stack up against each other, on paper of course.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Vs Yezdi Roadster
When it comes to design, both motorcycles feature a low-sling cruiser-like stance with a new-retro design theme. While Yezdi has stayed clear from terming it as a cruiser, Royal Enfield is happy to call Meteor one. That said, neither of the bikes can be called proper cruisers and more roadsters trying to be cruisers. Meteor gives a slightly more cruiser feel due to its wide and tall handlebar as opposed to the low-set handlebar in Roadster.
That said, both motorcycles receive centre-set footpegs which give better ability to maneuver than a traditional cruiser and a comfortable riding posture. Both flaunt a neo-retro styling theme with common elements such as round headlamps, teardrop-shaped fuel tanks and circular turn tail lights, turn indicators and rearview mirrors. Roadster looks slightly bulkier than Meteor thanks to the broader fenders in the former.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Yezdi Roadster
Meteor is powered by a 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC motor whereas Roadster is propelled by a smaller 334cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC motor. Despite being at a disadvantage for a smaller cubic capacity, Roadster extracts more power and torque from its engine. While the engine in Meteor kicks out 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of torque, the one in Roadster pumps out 29.7 bhp and 29 Nm of torque.
As far as dynamics are concerned, both motorcycles are underpinned by a similar dual-cradle frame. Chassis on both bikes are suspended on telescopic forks upfront and twin shock absorbers at rear. In terms of braking, both motorcycles utilise disc brakes at both ends aided by a dual-channel ABS. While Yezdi offers a larger front disc of 320mm, Royal Enfield provides a larger rotor of 270mm at rear.
Meteor offers a more accessible saddle of 765mm as compared to a 790mm seat height of Roadster. However, Roadster is slightly more nimble at 184kg in comparison to 191kg of Meteor which should translate to sharper handling. Meteor also features a larger 15-litre fuel tank as compared to a 12.5-litre tank in Roadster that should provide a longer range to Meteor.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Yezdi Roadster
Features and Price
In terms of features, Roadster gets all-LED lighting in addition to a semi-digital instrument console. It, however, misses out on Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation which is offered as standard in Meteor. The latter also gets LED DRLs, an LED taillight and a USB charger.
Coming to prices, both motorcycles are very closely priced to each other but Roadster offers a slightly lower starting price of Rs 1.98 lakh. On the other hand, prices for Meteor start at Rs 2.01 lakh (both prices ex-showroom). More
Image – SKRYezdi Adventure matches spec to spec with its closest competitor Royal Enfield Himalayan
Classic Legends recently revived the Yezdi brand by dropping three bombs- Scrambler, Roadster and Adventure. Out of these three, Adventure is garnering a lot of attention for the sheer fact it looks so similar to Royal Enfield Himalayan which also happens to be its nearest rival.
Like Himalayan, Yezdi Adventure is also a purpose-built adventure bike and it shows in its design. Apart from their design, these two bikes are comparable to each other in a lot of ways. This article reflects how the new adventure bike from Classic Legends in the block stack up against an old seasoned rival, at least on paper.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Yezdi Adventure – Specs
Starting with the powertrain, Himalayan obviously receives the larger 411cc SOHC engine which is surprisingly less powerful than the 334cc DOHC unit powering the Yezdi. While the former kicks out a peak power of 24 bhp, the latter pumps 30 bhp of maximum power. However, Himalayan does receive an advantage of slightly more torque which is achieved at a lower rpm than the Yezdi ADV.
While Royal Enfield offers a 5-speed gearbox, Yezdi utilises a 6-speed unit on its adventure bike. This should help the latter cruise on triple-digit speeds for longer durations. That said, Himalayan has a much simpler setup with its air and oil cooler as opposed to a liquid cooler in Adventure.
Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure
When it comes to adventure motorcycling, dynamics of a bike is a very crucial aspect. While Himalayan is underpinned by a Half-duplex split cradle frame, Adventure is based on a dual cradle frame. Both frames are suspended on conventional telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock. Further, both suspension units on both motorcycles offer the exact same travel of 200mm and 180mm at front and rear respectively.
Both bikes offer an identical ground clearance of 220mm, however, the saddle of Himalayan is more accessible at 800mm as compared to 815mm in Adventure. On the flip side, Yezdi is lighter at 188kg as opposed to 199kg of Himalayan. Both bikes ride on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoked wheels shod with dual-purpose tubeless tyres. In the braking department, Adventure offers a slightly larger disc brake at front.
Features on offer
In terms of features, Yezdi Adventure is the clear winner with a longer list of gizmos. For starters, Yezdi receives a fully digital instrument console as compared to Himalayan’s semi-digital unit. Both bikes receive Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, however, Yezdi gets three ABS modes (Road, Off-road, and Rain). Himalayan instead gets a switchable ABS. Yezdi also receives full-LED lighting which Himalayan misses out on.
Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure
Coming to prices, boh bikes are precariously closely priced, however, the Royal Enfield is slightly more expensive than its Yezdi counterpart. Prices for Himalayan start at 2.14 lakh whereas Adventure is available at a starting price of Rs 2.10 lakh (ex-showroom). On paper, Yezdi Adventure certainly offers more value for money in comparison to Royal Enfield Himalayan. More
Yezdi AdventureYezdi Roadster, Scrambler and Adventure prices start at Rs 1.98 lakh, Rs 2.05 lakh and Rs 2.10 lakh, respectively
To provide more options to enthusiasts and improve competencies vis-a-vis primary rival Royal Enfield, Classic Legends has launched three Yezdi motorcycles in India. These will be sold via Jawa Yezdi showrooms alongside Jawa motorcycles. Bookings and test rides are now open for all three Yezdi motorcycles.
Yezdi motorcycles styling and features
All three Yezdi bikes have neo-retro profile. Some common features include round headlamp, tear-drop shaped fuel tank, spoke wheels and minimalistic design. There are quite a few unique elements as well. For example, Yezdi Roadster and Scrambler have round rear-view mirrors whereas Adventure gets trendier units.
Adventure also gets a much larger windscreen, as compared to other Yezdi bikes. Scrambler and Adventure get raised front fender, which highlights their superior off-roading capabilities. All three bikes have powerful LED headlamps and tail lamps. Adventure and Scrambler are equipped with handlebar-mounted USB & Type C charging points.
Another difference can be seen in instrument console with Scrambler and Roadster getting round pods. In comparison, Adventure has a rectangular instrument console. It comes in a shock-proof casing and can be tilt-adjusted to suit both sitting and standing ride positions. Take a look at the detailed walkaround review of Yezdi motorcycles in the video below by Ujjwal Saxena.
All three Yezdi bikes offer a comfortable riding stance. Adventure has split seat design in comparison to single seat units on Roadster and Scrambler. The one on Scrambler comes in quilted pattern, which enhances its overall look and feel.
Yezdi Adventure packs in some additional features such as Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. Users can pair their smartphones with the instrument console via Yezdi mobile app. They can search and fix destinations and get turn-by-turn navigation on the instrument console. The console provides notifications for calls and messages and displays signal and battery percentage. With the Yezdi app, users can access data and analytics about the ride.
Yezdi motorcycles engine and specs
All three Yezdi motorcycles get the same 334cc engine that is currently used with Jawa Perak. However, power and torque output are slightly different. On Yezdi Roadster, the engine has been tweaked to deliver 29.7 ps of max power at 7,300 rpm and 29 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed constant mesh gearbox.
On Scrambler, the numbers are 29.1 ps at 8,000 rpm and 28.2 Nm at 6,750 Nm. Yezdi Adventure generates 30.2 ps at 8,000 rpm and 29.9 Nm at 6,500 rpm. While Roadster and Scrambler get dual exhaust, Adventure has single side exhaust. Braking system is common, 320 mm disc at front and 240 mm disc at rear. Dual-channel ABS is standard across all three Yezdi bikes.
All three Yezdi bikes have double cradle chassis, integrated with telescopic front forks. Roadster and Scrambler have gas-canister based dual shock absorber at rear whereas Adventure gets monoshock with coil spring and linkage mechanism. While 17-inch rear wheels are common across all three bikes, front wheels are 18-inch for Roadster, 19-inch for Scrambler and 21-inch for Adventure. Choice of rubber is also different. More

Classic Legends has pulled out a pleasant surprise by launching three new bikes under the defunct Yezdi brand. One of those models is Yezdi Adventure which has been spotted testing on roads on several occasions recently. The other two bikes are Yezdi Scrambler and Yezdi Roadster. Bookings and test rides open from today. Deliveries also start from today.
As the name suggests, Classic Legends claim the motorcycle to be a proper adventure tourer built to tackle tough conditions. With prices starting at Rs 2.10 lakh (ex-showroom), it is also the flagship model of the Yezdi brand.
The motorcycle is available in a single fully-loaded trim with three colour options on offer- Slick Silver, Mambo Black and Ranger Camo. Prices vary according to the colour options on offer and top out at Rs 2.19 lakh (ex-showroom).
Yezdi Adventure: Design
In line with the spy shots circulated, Yezdi Adventure gets signature ADV styling elements such as a beak and large windscreen upfront along with a sculpted fuel tank and a tall stance. Below is a short video on the Yezdi exhaust note and instrument console.
It also features split-style seating and a raised tail section. Unlike rest of its siblings, Adventure gets a single exhaust pipe with an upswept canister.
In addition, Classic Legends have stuck with a neo-retro design language thanks to a round LED headlamp, fork gaiters and wire-spoked wheels. The bikemaker will be offering plenty of accessories to jazz up the look of the bike. Add ons such as saddlebags, pannier boxes, jerry cans and handguards accentuate the bike’s touring capabilities.
Features on offer
In terms of features, Yezdi Adventure has been equipped with a tilt-adjustable and fully digital LCD instrument display which provides a host of information. The instrument cluster is powered with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation as standard fitments. Other notable features include full LED illumination, USB port and Type-C charging point.
Yezdi Adventure Specs
Coming to specifics, Adventure is based on the same dual-cradle chassis as its other two siblings and Jawa cousins. However, adjustments have been made to suit its adventure touring characteristics. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at front and a preload adjustable mono-shock at rear. The front and rear units offer travel of 200mm and 180mm respectively.
In addition, Adventure stands tall with an impressive 220mm ground clearance. Braking duties are carried out by disc brakes at both ends with callipers from ByBre. The braking is aided by dual-channel ABS sourced from Continental. The motorcycle rides on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels which are wrapped around with dual-purpose tyres.
Yezdi Adventure Prices
Powering Yezdi Adventure is the same 334cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine which propels Jawa Perak. However, the engine has been tweaked to suit its adventure characteristics and offers more bottom-end grunt. In Adventure, this motor kicks out 30.2 PS of power at 8000rpm and a peak torque of 29.9 Nm at 6500rpm. This unit is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. More
Yezdi ScramblerYezdi Roadster will compete against Royal Enfield Meteor 350 while Scrambler will take on the upcoming Royal Enfield Scram 411
Classic Legends has officially re-introduced the Yezdi brand in India by launching three new motorcycles. The most interesting bit of news is that the names of all three bikes represent the class of motorcycles they belong to.
The range consists of Adventure, Scrambler and Roadster which will be retailed under the same roof as their Jawa cousins. All three Yezdi bikes are now open for bookings. Test rides have also started from today. Yezdi deliveries start from Day 1.
Details about Yezdi Adventure have been covered in a separate story, whereas this article will focus on Scrambler and Roadster. The former has been priced starting at Rs 2.05 lakh while prices for the latter commence at Rs 1.98 lakh (both prices ex-showroom). All three motorcycles had been teased on social media ahead of their launch.
Yezdi Scrambler, Roadster: Design
Both bikes have adopted a neo-retro design language which is reminiscent of the original Yezdi brand of the 1980s and 90s. Some common visual highlights include a round headlamp, circular rearview mirrors, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, engine radiator shrouds and fork gaiters. However, both motorcycles are significantly different in their design and characteristics.
While Roadster offers a cruiser-like low stance with relaxed ergonomics, Scrambler is aimed more at a youthful section of riders who want to have a fun riding experience. Highlights on Scrambler include a single-piece seat with a ribbed pattern, a raised tail section with split grab rails and a luggage mounting rack. On the other hand, Roadster gets a single-piece flat seat with a pillion cowl and a broad rear fender.
Yezdi Roadster Specs
Both motorcycles get dual exhausts, however, the ones offered in Scrambler are slightly upswept in comparison to the straight line units offered in Roadster. While Scrambler rides wire-spoked rims, Roadster rolls on black alloy wheels. Like Adventure, both Roadster and Scrambler will be available in a single fully loaded trim with multiple colour options on offer.
Colour Options & Features
Roadster will be offered in five colour options- Smoke Grey, Steel Blue, Hunter Green, Gallant Grey and Sin Silver. Out of these the first three shades will be offered with a dark theme whereas the latter two are offered in a chrome theme. Scrambler comes with six paint schemes on offer- Fire Orange, Yelling Yellow, Outlaw Olive, Rebel Red, Mean Green and Midnight Blue.
Yezdi Scrambler Specs
In terms of features, both motorcycles are offered with LED headlamps and taillamps and a round, fully digital LED instrument console that provides a wide range of information. Scrambler offers a bit more creature comforts such as clear lens LED indicators, USB and Type C chagrin ports. It will be interesting to see if Classic Legends will offer features such as Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation as options on both these bikes.
Powering both Scrambler and Roadster are the same 334cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which performs duties on Adventure and Jawa Perak. However, the engine has been tuned differently to suit characteristics in both motorcycles. In Roadster, this engine returns an output of 29.7 PS of power at 7300rpm and a peak torque of 29 Nm at 6500rpm.
Yezdi Roadster Prices
In Scrambler, this power mill churns out 29.1 PS at 8000rpm and 28.2 Nm at 6750rpm. Both bikes are offered with a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycles are underpinned by the same dual cradle chassis but again have been tweaked to meet their individual characteristics. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at rear with different travels. More
Jawa Yezdi ShowroomThe three new Yezdi motorcycles will be launched today – In adventure, scrambler and cruiser format
Following revival of Jawa brand in 2018 and more recent BSA Motorcycle brand with the new Gold Star 650 roadster, Mahindra owned Classic Legends is now set to re-introduce the Yezdi brand in India today. Three new bikes under Yezdi brand will mark their entry into the country on January 13, 2022 and are expected to be called Yezdi Adventure, Yezdi Cruiser and Yezdi Roadking Scrambler.
Even as the company has not revealed any official details of these upcoming bikes, Yezdi has shared multiple teasers over the last few days. Now, Co-founder of Classic Legends, Anupam Thareja has shared the first look of new Jawa Yezdi showrooms. The image is of Yuvraj Motors in Thane. This was previously an exclusive Jawa dealership, but has been modified ahead of Yezdi launch.
Jawa Yezdi Showroom First Look
Just like the above showroom, all Jawa showrooms across India will be modified to sell Yezdi motorcycles as well. Along with the Jawa Yezdi showroom photo shared by Anupam, he also stated, “My kinda brotherhood. Jai and Veeru are back tomorrow!”
The three upcoming Yezdi bikes will pertain to different segments. Yezdi Adventure will compete against the RE Himalayan while Yezdi Scrambler could take on Jawa 42, Honda CB350 RS and soon to be launch Royal Enfield Hunter. Yezdi cruiser will rival both the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and Classic 350.
Yezdi Adventure Motorcycle – Render
Along with the three new motorcycles from Yezdi, Classic Legends will now have 6 motorcycles to offer in total. 3 from Jawa and 3 from Yezdi. All six motorcycles will be sold under the same roof – via the extensive dealership network across India.
Yet to be officially unveiled, spy images show off some of the features on these upcoming Yezdi bikes. The Yezdi Adventure looks nearly identical to the Himalayan at first glance. It could sport long travel suspension along with a tall windscreen, spoked wheels and upright handlebars. It has also been spied with cylindrical turn signal, a raised front fender, rear view mirrors and split seats along with grab handles and knuckle guards.
The Cruiser could get forward positioned foot pegs, high mounted handlebars and lower seating position for a more relaxed ride. It will also receive a slim fuel tank, rounded head and tail lamps and telescopic front forks along with two side mounted rear shocks. No details of the upcoming Yezdi Scrambler were revealed.
2022 Yezdi Roadking Scrambler – Render
Jawa Perak Sourced Engine
The new Yezdi motorcycles are set to be powered by the same engine that is seen on the Jawa Perak Bobber. This 334cc single cylinder, liquid cooled engine makes 30 hp power and 32.74 Nm torque and gets mated to a 6 speed gearbox. The Yezdi bikes could get a slipper and assist clutch.
Suspension could include telescopic fork in the front and monoshock at the rear with preload adjustability. Roadking scrambler could include 17 inch wheels at both ends while the Yezdi ADV could get larger 19 inch wheels at the front fitted with dual purpose tyres. Dual-channel ABS is expected to be offered as standard. Yezdi motorcycles prices will be released today, expected to be priced in the Rs 2 lakh range. More
Yezdi motorcycle renderIt will be another dream come true for enthusiasts, as legendary Yezdi motorcycles will be back in action soon in their new avatar
After Jawa, Classic Legends is looking to create yet another success story with the Yezdi nameplate. Initially, three Yezdi bikes are expected to be launched. One of these will be Roadking scrambler, while the 2nd will be an Adv motorcycle and the 3rd will be a cruiser.
As per the latest teaser, Yezdi will launch 3 new motorcycles, and not 2, as previously expected. Test mules of these bikes have been spotted quite frequently in recent weeks. Official launch of Yezdi motorcycles is tomorrow, on January 13, 2022.
Yezdi motorcycles – design and features
Yezdi motorcycles have neo-retro styling, something that is common across various brands in this segment including Royal Enfield, Jawa, Honda and Benelli. By combining the best of both worlds, it becomes easier to target enthusiasts with varying tastes and preferences. Retro bits are evident in features such as round headlamp and taillight, teardrop-shaped fuel tank and spoke wheels.
Yezdi bikes appear capable of tackling city streets as well as off-road tracks. Some common features include wide handlebar, upswept exhaust and dual-purpose tyres. The Adv is apparently better equipped for the trails with features such as large windscreen, knuckle guards, and dedicated engine and radiator guard. The bike’s digital instrument console is wrapped in a rugged, shock-proof casing. It has racks at front and rear for cargo.
Users can expect comfortable riding stance on both Yezdi bikes. The Adv can do relatively better in this department, as it has taller handlebar, low seat height and centrally placed footpegs. Yezdi Adv has wider seat in comparison to the lean unit on Roadking scrambler.
To reduce development and production cost, Yezdi motorcycles are expected to borrow several of the hardware bits from Jawa motorcycles. For example, the engine could be the 334cc unit currently being used for Jawa Perak. Mated to a 6-speed gearbox, the engine churns out 30.64 ps of max power and 32.74 Nm of peak torque.
Standard telescopic forks will be common for both bikes. At rear, Roadking scrambler will have dual shock absorbers while Adv comes with a monoshock unit. Disk brakes at both ends will be common for Yezdi motorcycles. Dual-channel ABS is expected to be offered as standard.
BSA Gold Star 650 next
Classic Legends has plans to strengthen its presence in international markets as well. For that, BSA Gold Star 650 motorcycle is currently under development. The original Gold Star was a popular bike in UK several decades earlier, when it was offered with 350cc and 500cc engine. Gold Star gets bigger in its 21st century avatar, sporting a 650cc motor. It is likely to be launched first in UK. It could be introduced in India at a later date.
Powering Gold Star will be a 652cc motor that generates 45 hp / 55 Nm. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. In international markets, BSA Gold Star will primarily take on Royal Enfield 650 twins. Other rivals include Triumph Street Twin and Kawasaki W800. More
Yezdi Motorcycles – Roadking Scrambler and AdventureYezdi will be making a return with two motorcycles- a scrambler rivaling upcoming RE Hunter and an adventure tourer rivaling Himalayan
Classic Legends will be officially unveiling the Yezdi brand of motorcycles on January 13, 2022. This will be the third brand that the Indian bike maker will be reviving after relaunching Jawa in 2018 and BSA earlier this year. The company will be launching the Yezdi brand by introducing two motorcycles- a scrambler and an adventure bike.
Test mules of both models have been frequently spotted on Indian roads in recent times. The upcoming Yezdi siblings have been caught on camera once again ahead of their global debut in a couple of weeks. A spy video of both motorcycles has been uploaded on Instagram courtesy of Bhuvan Chowdhary.
Although in their camouflaged guises, both motorcycles appear to be in their final stages of testing. Both motorcycles are expected to be underpinned by a new architecture accompanied by a higher load-bearing rear subframe. While Yezdi Roadking scrambler will take on the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter, Yezdi Adventure will lock horns with Himalayan.
Yezdi Roadking, ADV- Design
When it comes to styling, both motorcycles sport a distinct design but flaunt some common neo-retro styling elements such as a round headlamp, fork gaiters and wire-spoke wheels. The scrambler also receives a teardrop-shaped fuel tank and circular rearview mirrors which further accentuate its retro appeal. Other styling highlights include dual exhaust canisters, a circular LED taillight and a single-piece seat with a ribbed pattern.
Coming to its adventure sibling, the bike gets signature ADV styling highlights such as a large windscreen and a beak up front along with a sculpted fuel tank and a taller stance. It also features split-style seating and a raised tail section. Unlike the scrambler, the adventure bike boasts of a single-sided upswept exhaust canister and different radiator shrouds in comparison to current Jawa models.
Mechanical Specs & Features
In all likelihood, both bikes will be powered by a 334cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that kicks out 30 bhp and 32.74 Nm of peak torque. This unit will be paired with a six-speed gearbox via a slipper and assist clutch. The powertrain currently propels Jawa Perak and will also be seen empowering the brand’s upcoming cruiser.
Coming to the hardware setup, frames on both motorcycles will be suspended on conventional telescopic forks at front and a mono-shock with preload adjustability at rear. However, the Adventure bike is expected to offer more travel than its scrambler sibling. Both motorcycles will roll on spoked wheels that are shod with dual-purpose tyres.
Braking duties will be handled by disc brakes on both ends with calipers from ByBre. In terms of features, both Yezdi bikes are expected to be equipped with a fully digital instrument console and all-LED illumination including taillight, turn indicators and headlight. More
