Yezdi Scrambler is powered by a 334 cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine developing 29.1 PS at 8,000 rpm and 28.2 Nm of peak torque delivered at 6,750 rpm
Following weeks of teaser videos and social media handles honouring the past to rekindle the legacy, Yezdi has finally come back with a bang. Classic Legends has successfully resuscitated the third motorcycle brand in its arsenal as Jawa returned back in late 2018 and only a few months ago, the BSA Motorcycle company was resurrected in its home market of the United Kingdom.
In a similar fashion to Jawa, its Yezdi sibling has been revitalised with a range of three new motorcycles: Scrambler, Roadster and Adventure. The production of all three motorcycles is underway at the Pithampur plant in Madhya Pradesh and they are reaching showrooms right away with deliveries expected to start sooner rather than later.
The Yezdi trio definitely targets the middleweight motorcycle space in the country led by Royal Enfield and they are priced competitively as well. The Yezdi Scrambler carries a sticker tag of Rs. 2.04 lakh for Fire Orange, Rs. 2.06 lakh for Yelling Yellow and Outlaw Olive and Rs. 2.10 lakh for Rebel Red, Mean Green and Midnight Blue colours (all prices, ex-showroom).

|3. Yezdi Scrambler Outlaw Olive||Rs. 2,06,900|
|4. Yezdi Scrambler Rebel Red, Mean Green, Midnight Blue||Rs. 2,10,900|
The Yezdi Scrambler derives power from a 334 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected DOHC engine producing a maximum power output of 29.1 PS at 8,000 rpm and 28.2 Nm of peak torque delivered at 6,750 rpm. The powertrain is linked with a six-speed constant mesh transmission. All three motorcycles are based on a twin cradle frame.
