Four years after launching the legendary Jawa brand in India, Classic Legends have now brought back the iconic Yezdi in the country. The brand's kickstarting its second innings today with three motorcycles, and in this report, we will focus on the most exciting bike of the trio, the Scrambler

Styling

We think Classic Legends have got the styling on point. Yes, the Yezdi Scrambler looks similar to the Triumph Street Scrambler, but it isn't bad. You get classic 'scrambler' design elements like a round headlight, a high-mounted mudguard, a large tank, a ribbed flat seat, and spoke wheels. The tail section is minimal, and the swept exhausts look really cool. 

The overall styling is rugged and functional. 

Engine

All the Yezdi bikes are powered by a 334cc motor, and the engine case is styled much like the Yezdis from the past. The boxy design is cool, and the other notable change is that the Yezdi engine's piston is different from that of the Jawa. A unique feature to the old Yezdi was the integrated gear shift lever and kick-starter (the modern Yezdi misses out on a kick-starter). 

Classic Legends claims all three Yezdi engines have been tuned differently to better suit the individual nature of each bike.

Engine

334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled

Power

29.1PS @ 8,000rpm

Torque

28.2Nm @ 6,750rpm

Gearbox

6-speed with slipper clutch. 

Features

The Yezdi Scrambler features a single-pod LCD instrument console, all-new switchgear, and switch cubes similar to the ones on the KTM 390 Duke. The switch cubes are used to control the three modes: 'Off-road' (disengages the rear ABS), 'Rain' (for braking on wet surfaces), and 'Road' (the standard dual-channel ABS setting). 

Another interesting addition is the handlebar-mounted USB and type C charger. The Scrambler also gets LED lighting all around, including the turn indicators.

Underpinnings

Unlike the Honda CB350RS (which is a scrambler for the sake of it), the Yezdi is a more genuine attempt. The brand has designed a new frame for the Scrambler and the Adventure. Now, since it's an off road-spec bike, the Scrambler gets long-travel suspension, high ground clearance, and semi off-road tyres. It's also the lightest bike in the Yezdi range, with a pretty good seat height of 800mm.

Price & Rivals

The Yezdi Scrambler starts at Rs 2.05 lakh, which is a reasonable price, given the engine specs, features, and kit on offer. There is no direct rival to the bike, and its nearest competitors are the Honda CB350RS and the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250. Unlike the Jawa, Classic Legends have ensured that there will be no long waiting period for the Yezdis and deliveries for the Scrambler are expected to commence this week itself.
