Classic Legends will soon revive the Yezdi brand in the Indian market with the launch of two products, a scrambler and an adventure tourer. Both motorcycles will debut in our market on 13 January, 2022. Previously, we told you everything that we knew about the adventure tourer, and you can read all about it here. In this article, we bring you the details about the upcoming Yezdi Scrambler.
While the company is yet to give us a glimpse of the motorcycle, spy photographs and videos have captured this model on several occasions. The styling cues on the new Yezdi Scrambler will comprise a round headlight, a tall-set front fender, round rear-view mirrors, a curvy fuel tank with a chrome lid, a single-piece saddle with a ribbed pattern, rear tyre hugger-mounted numberplate, and twin-sided exhausts. The rugged character of the motorcycle is further enhanced through spoke wheels. Rumours suggest that the motorcycle could arrive in two cosmetically different variants.
Apart from revealing the styling details, spy images also indicate that the new Yezdi scrambler will use a full-LED lighting setup. This motorcycle will rival the upcoming Royal Enfield Scram 411 which, similar to the 2021 Himalayan, could pack a Bluetooth setup. Classic Legends would most likely try and match the feature list and we could see Bluetooth connectivity on the upcoming Yezdi Scrambler as well. Lastly, the safety net should comprise a switchable, dual-channel ABS.
While the official details about the engine are not available, rumours suggest that the Yezdi Scrambler could share its motor with the Jawa Perak bobber. The Jawa motorcycle, which is already available in the Indian market, uses a 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 30.64bhp of power and 32.74Nm of peak torque.
The hardware on the Yezdi Scrambler comprises telescopic front forks and twin-sided rear springs to handle the suspension tasks. The braking department will comprise single discs on both ends while the safety net, as mentioned above, should include a switchable, dual-channel ABS. The spoked wheel setup means that the motorcycle will use tube-type tyres.
Expected Price and Rivals
The details about the prices are not available yet, however, Classic Legends should target the Royal Enfield products. Thus, we expect the new Yezdi Scrambler to arrive in the Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.3 lakh (ex-showroom) price range. Once launched, this motorcycle will rival the Royal Enfield Scram 411.
