Classic Legends revived the Yezdi brand in the Indian market with the launch of three motorcycles – Adventure, Scrambler, and Roadster. Previously, we brought you spec comparison between the Royal Enfield Himalayan and its doppelganger, the Yezdi Adventure. Here we compare the specifications and feature list of the new Yezdi Scrambler and its closest rival in the Indian market, the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250.
The new Yezdi Scrambler features a more retro and rugged design than the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250. The retro design of the Scrambler is complemented by the classic engine cover design, round rearview mirrors, twin-sided exhaust canisters, and the roll-and-tuck seat design. Meanwhile, the rugged design is enhanced by a beak-style front fender and wire-spoke wheels in 19-inch front and 17-inch rear combination. The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250, on the other hand, uses a modern design and a relatively road-biased setup. Thus, the Made-in-India Swedish motorcycle features 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends. Other styling details on the Svartpilen 250 include split-style seats and a single-sided exhaust.
The feature list on both motorcycles is near identical. The lighting, for example, is LED all around. The instrument cluster, which uses a round design on both motorcycles, features an all-digital display and misses Bluetooth connectivity. Lastly, the safety net on both the motorcycles comprises dual-channel ABS. However, the Yezdi Scrambler has three modes (Road, Off-Road, and Rain) while the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 has two (On and rear disengaged).
The mechanical specifications on the Yezdi Scrambler comprise a 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that makes 28.7bhp at 8,000rpm and 28.2Nm at 6,750rpm. The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250, on the other hand, uses a relatively lower displacement engine, although it makes more power than the Yezdi Scrambler. The 248.76cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor on the Svartpilen 250 produces 29.6bhp at 9,000rpm and 24Nm of peak torque at 7,500rpm.
The suspension tasks on the Yezdi Scrambler are performed by 41mm telescopic front forks and twin-sided, gas-charged rear springs. The Svartpilen 250, in contrast, packs a modern setup that includes 43mm upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock – both sourced from WP. The braking setup on both bikes includes single discs on both ends along with ByBre-sourced callipers. The Yezdi Scrambler uses a 320mm disc at the front and a 240mm rotor at the back. The Svartpilen 250, too, uses a 320mm disc at the front but gets a 230mm rotor at the rear.
The prices for the Yezdi Scrambler range between Rs 2,04,900 and Rs 2,10,900. The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 retails in the same range and is available at Rs 2,10,650.
