Classic Legends have updated its entire line-up of motorcycles in the Jawa as well as Yezdi range. This also includes the Royal Enfield Meteor 350-rivalling Roadster. Let us tell you everything you need to know about the motorcycle in five key points.
To keep in tune with the neo-classic trend, the Yezdi Roadster sports a minimal bodywork. It comes with a round headlamp, chunky rear fender and small fuel tank- all of which is pinned onto a base borrowed from the Jawa 42. That said, apart from the Yezdi branding on the tank, one would even mistake it for the Jawa. To further complement its custom look, the Roadster gets bar-end mirrors and blacked-out components. It is being offered in a choice of Smoke Grey, Inferno Red or Glacial White. A slight premium presents the motorcycle in a dual-tone Crimson paint.
Under its neo-retro clothing, the Yezdi Roadster uses is a 334cc engine that has been derived from the Jawa Perak. However, the internals have been further tuned with the 2023 update. Classic Legends have added a larger rear sprocket for better low-end grunt as well as a redesigned pair of exhausts for a revised note.
As for features, the Yezdi Roadster is decently equipped. It comes with a full-LED headlamp and tail lamp and a fully-digital instrument cluster. This single-pod unit with an LCD screen and chrome bezel accentuates the look of the motorcycle while offering good amount of data to the ride. While it does miss out on connectivity, we can expect that to feature on the next update of the Roadster.
The Roadster rides on alloy wheels at both ends in an 18/17-inch combo. It is suspended from telescopic forks up front and twin shocks at the rear while a single disc at both ends accompanied by ABS make up for braking duties.
Yezdi has priced the Roadster at Rs 2.06 lakh for the base Smoke Grey, Inferno Red or Glacial White. A slight premium of Rs 2,000 over that pricing will get you the motorcycle in a dual-tone Crimson paint scheme as well.
