Classic Legends have revived the Yezdi brand in the Indian market with the launch of three motorcycles. Among the list is the Royal Enfield Himalayan rival Yezdi Adventure that is available from Rs 2,09,900 onwards. Here we list the top five highlights of this new adventure tourer.
Colours and Prices
The new Yezdi Adventure is available in three colours. The prices vary depending on the colour option selected and the Slick Silver, which is available at Rs 2,09,900, is the most affordable version. The Mambo Black and Ranger Camo paint options are available at Rs 2,11,900 and Rs 2,18,900, respectively.
All three motorcycles from Yezdi use the same 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine although they all feature different mappings. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the motor on the Adventure is tuned to deliver 29.8bhp of power at 8,000rpm and 29.9Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm.
The rugged design of the new Yezdi Adventure looks very similar to its direct rival, the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Similar to the Royal Enfield adventure tourer, the new Yezdi Adventure is designed for long-distance riding and off-roading. The styling cues include a round headlight, a windscreen, a tall-set front fender, split-style seats, a side-slung exhaust and wire-spoke wheels like the Himalayan. However, that’s where the similarities end.
The Yezdi Adventure carries a more premium feature list that comprises full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled digital instrument cluster, USB port, USB Type-C port, and saddle-stays as standard. The Bluetooth module brings access to turn-by-turn navigation, and call and message notifications. The vehicle and rider details are available on the smartphone application. The instrument cluster also features a tilt-adjustability function that aims to deliver information efficiently when seated or standing on the footpegs. The safety net on the motorcycle comprises a Continental-sourced three-level ABS. The ABS intervention levels include Road, Off-road, and Rain.
The hardware on the new Yezdi Adventure comprises a dual-cradle chassis. The suspension tasks are handled by telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. Do note that the Adventure is the only product in Yezdi’s current line-up to feature a rear mono-shock. The Scrambler and the Roadster, on the other hand, use twin-sided gas-charged springs. The front forks and the rear mono-shock feature suspension travel of 200mm and 180mm, respectively.
The braking tasks are handled by a 320mm disc with a floating calliper at the front and a 240mm rotor with a floating calliper at the back. The motorcycle rides on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoke wheels that are wrapped in tube-type tyres. Key dimensions include 220mm of ground clearance, 815mm of seat height, and 188kg of kerb weight.
