Yezdi Adventure is the most powerful motorcycle within the brand’s range as the 334 cc liquid-cooled engine develops 30.2 PS maximum power and 29.9 Nm
Classic Legends brought back Jawa Motorcycles in late 2018 and only a few weeks ago, the BSA company was revived in the UK. The Mahindra-owned firm has now announced the much-awaited return of Yezdi by launching three motorcycles namely Scrambler, Roadster and Adventure, and they are retailed through the same dealer network as Jawa.
The adventure touring segment has really gotten popular in recent years and the Royal Enfield Himalayan is one of the top sellers alongside the Xpulse. The Yezdi Adventure competes directly against the RE Himalayan and is priced bang on target. It costs Rs. 2.09 lakh for Slick Silver, Rs. 2.11 lakh for Mambo Black and Rs. 2.18 lakh for Ranger Camo (all prices, ex-showroom).
The Yezdi Adventure is packed with features such as an LED headlight, LED taillight and LED turn blinkers alongside an LCD instrument cluster with trip meter, speedometer, distance to empty, time, ABS mode and gear indicator. It is the only motorcycle in the Yezdi trio to have Bluetooth connectivity and a turn-by-turn navigation system as standard.
