The Yezdi lineup for 2022 would include a scrambler, ADV and a roadster.
Mahindra-owned Classic Legends has resurrected the iconic Yezdi brand in India, by launching 3 new motorcycles- Scrambler, Adventure, and Roadster. As obvious from the names, the motorcycles fall into segments with massive customer engagement. The new Yezdi range is priced from Rs 1.98 lakh to 2.19 lakh ex-sh. These will be retailed alongside the Jawa motorcycles through the existing Classic Legends dealerships and can be booked against a payment of Rs 5,000.
The entire Yezdi portfolio is powered by the same 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine but the output differs with the model. Let’s dive deeper into these.
2022 Yezdi Scrambler
This is Yezdi’s answer to the growing demand for scramblers in the country. The motorcycle gets all key styling details demanded by a classic scrambler/dual-purpose motorcycle. Key highlights of the Yezdi scrambler include a simple seat, classic round tank, tucked-in headlamp, offset speedo pod, upright handlebar position, twin exhausts, dual-purpose tyres, and a suspension that can let you go off roads. The scrambler is available in a total of four colors: Fire Orange, Yelling Yellow, Outlaw Olive, and a multi-tone scheme of Rebel Red, Mean Green, and Midnight Blue.
On the mechanical front, the Yezdi Scrambler gets its 350cc engine to produce 29.1 PS and 28.2 Nm, with a flat torque curve for a meaty torque spread across the rev range. The motorcycle also gets disc brakes on both the wheels, selectable ride modes, and a Continental-sourced ABS.
The key rival to the Yezdi Scrambler in India would be the Honda CB 350 RS, which is currently in great demand here.

|Rebel Red, Mean Green, Midnight Blue||2,10,900|
2022 Yezdi Adventure
A worthy adventure touring machine, Yezdi Adventure is the manufacturer’s answer to the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Interestingly, it has almost the same suspension travel as the Royal Enfield- 200mm at the front and 180mm at the rear. It, however, falls slightly behind the Himalayan in terms of ground clearance (220mm). The Yezdi adventure runs on 21-inch/17-inch wire-spoke wheels.
The motorcycle gets the styling of a capable off-roader, and the overall design might remind one of the RE Himalayan many a time. The overall ergonomics and rider experience are claimed to be great as well. Yezdi Adventure also features a Bluetooth-based turn-by-turn navigation system and a neat digital instrument cluster, that can also be adjusted slightly for maximum readability.
The Adventure is built on an all-new chassis, with a mono-shock swing arm setup at the rear. The engine produces 30.2 PS and 29.9 Nm and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The ADV also gets dual disc brakes and a dual-channel ABS.
In addition to the Himalayan, the Yezdi adventure will also have to battle the KTM Adventure and Hero XPulse 200 4V.

2022 Yezdi Roadster
Going by the prices, the Roadster is the entry point to the new Yezdi range. Priced from Rs 1.98 lakh ex-showroom, the Yezdi Roadster will rival the likes of Royal Enfield Meteor 350 (Read our review), Honda Hness 350, and Jawa 42. Yezdi, in comparison, has competitive pricing.
The motorcycle has a retro design with the key highlights being rear-set footpegs, split seats, twin exhausts, 18-inch/17-inch wheels, LED lighting, and an upright handlebar. The turn signal lamps are halogen units. The Roadster also gets an LCD instrument cluster and a fair-sized windscreen.
The Roadster’s powertrain produces 29.7 PS and 29 Nm, resulting in a performance that is equally appealing in the cities and out on the highways. A dual-channel ABS by Continental is also on offer on the Roadster.
