Adventure bikes are a segment that has recently got popular in India. In the last couple of years, we have seen manufacturers launching adventure tourer motorcycles for those who love taking bikes off-road. We now have a lot more affordable options in the country like Hero Xpluse, Royal Enfield Himalayan, KTM 250 Adventure and so on. We have seen several videos online where bikers take their motorcycles off-road to test the capabilities. Here we have a video where vlogger takes motorcycle that belong to a different category off-road. How did it go actually go? Let’s check the video to find out.
The video has been uploaded by rider VEER JI on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger and his friend were on a ride to explore a sand dune in their area. After reaching the spot they realised that they don’t have the perfect motorcycle for the purpose. They attempted to climb a steep section but failed. After this, they started looking for alternate ways to get to the top. They figured out a route that was long and was completely off-road.

Both the riders start riding the bikes through the loose sand. Vlogger can be heard saying in the video that the traction control in the Honda CB 350RS turns on everytime he starts the bike. He has to turn it off so that it does not interrupt while riding on loose sandy surface. Yezdi on the other hand was not facing such issues. The rider of Yezdi roadster looked a bit less experienced which meant, the bike kept of getting stuck in sand in between.
The vlogger found a small path through which he can come behind the dune that they were aiming to climb. He removes the thorns and spikes from the route and then takes the bike up. Yezdi rider had some difficulty and the vlogger pushed the bike up. After this, they came across a climb which had loose sand in it. By this time, vlogger swapped the bikes and was riding the Yezdi Roadster. He approached the climb while carrying good speed and that helped the motorcycle climb up without any problems.
His friend who was riding the Honda CB 350RS now also attempted to climb up the same section but for some reason he could not make it to the top. It is not clear whether the traction control had interrupted during the climb or not. The vlogger pushed the motorcycle to the top. After climbing up this section both of them realised that the dune that they were aiming for is on the other side and there is steep slope and climb in between. Vlogger brought Honda down the slope very carefully but, there was not space to build momentum to climb up. He finally has to get down the bike and push it to the top. Same was the case with Yezdi. Both motorcycles struggled a lot in this video as they were not meant for such terrain. However they managed to reach the top.
