Classic Legend is preparing to bring back the Yezdi brand. Yezdi will offer two motorcycles, there will be a scrambler and an adventure tourer. The new motorcycles have been spied once again on the Mumbai-Pune Highway. The video has been uploaded on YouTube by Kaif Nasir.
In the video, we can see three motorcycles. There are two scramblers and an adventure tourer. The scrambler is expected to be called the Roadking. It will go against the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter and Husqvarna Svartpilen 250. The name of the adventure tourer is not yet known, but it will compete against the Royal Enfield Himalayan and KTM 250 Adventure.

Roadking comes with a sweeping flat seat, slightly rear-set footpegs and a tall handlebar. This provides an upright riding triangle with a slight hint of sportiness. There are fork gaiters, a beak-like front mudguard, a circular headlamp, twin exhaust pipes, a tyre hugger and a circular tail lamp.
The number plate is also mounted on the tyre hugger. Suspension duties are done by telescopic forks at the front and twins shock absorbers at the rear. The motorcycle is running on spoked wheels.
Then there is the adventure tourer, it gets a circular LED headlamp, a beak-like mudguard, fork gaiters, a windshield to protect the rider from windblast when travelling on highways and a circular tail lamp. It gets a more traditional looking rear end without a tyre hugger. However, it has a silencer only on the right side and it is an upswept unit. Most adventure tourers use this kind of silencers only.
It is also running on spoked wheels so the tyre won’t be tubeless. The riding triangle is also quite upright with a tall handlebar so the rider will not get tired on long journeys. It looks like the motorcycle is equipped with saddle stays and a tail rack. So, it should be safe to assume that Yezdi will be offering some genuine touring focused accessories.
Also, if you would notice the front wheel is larger than the rear one. It could have a 21-inch front and an 18-inch or a 17-inch wheel at the rear. The motorcycle is running on spoked wheels so the tyres will not be tubeless. It gets telescopic forks in the front and it looks like Yezdi will be using a single mono-shock for the rear. We assume this because the rear shock absorber is not visible.
On both motorcycles, braking duties will be done by a disc in the front and the rear. We expect the motorcycles to offer a dual-channel Anti-lock braking system as standard. Having said that, it would be nice if the adventure tourer comes with a switchable Anti-lock braking system.
We expect that the engine on both the motorcycle will be the same. It is expected to be a 334 cc, single-cylinder engine that is liquid-cooled. The engine produces 30.64 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 32.74 Nm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. This is the same engine that we have seen on Jawa Perak.
