Is This The Upcoming Yezdi Roadking Scrambler?

If it indeed is, the upcoming motorcycle will rival the Honda CB350RS and the Husqvarna Svartpilen

  • The test mule flaunts a scrambler design language.

  • A lot of parts are unfinished, hinting that it’s an early prototype.

  • The engine casing resembles the one on the Yezdi Roadking.

 The Pune-Nashik highway is famous for automotive test spottings and it has delivered again. This time, it is an interesting test mule with a scrambler-ish design. All signs point to it being the 2021 iteration of the Yezdi Roadking or the Yezdi Roadking Scrambler. But nothing can be said for sure since the prototype appears to be in very early stages.

Judging from the photos, the rear end of the motorcycle surely resembles a modern day scrambler, thanks to its rear tyre hugger, narrow tail piece and slim flat ribbed seat. It also sports twin exhausts which look oddly unfinished. Coming to the front, the test mule features a round headlamp, fork gaiters, and an even taller handlebar. The final production model should feature LED lighting. 

We also noticed that the engine casing is similar to that seen on the legendary Yezdi Roadking while the radiator, engine head and the bash plate seems straight out of modern day Jawas. Further, the mule is riding on blacked out spoke wheels with a bigger front rim, again adding to its scrambler appeal. The rims are wrapped in MRF Zapper Kurve rubber, as seen in the newly launched Honda CB350RS, which we recently took for a spin. Check out its review.

Further, we can also see single disc brakes at both ends, shod with ABS sensors and ByBre calipers. 

Several essential features like a tail light, indicators, and most importantly, an instrument cluster are missing on the test mule. Nevertheless, the key can be seen on the handlebar unlike the Jawas and we expect the production version to sport a basic analogue instrument cluster with a small LCD unit. 

 We expect Classic Legends (the brand that manufactures Jawa bikes) to equip the upcoming Yezdi Roadking Scrambler with a 300-350cc motor, probably inspired by the Mahindra Mojo. And just like the standard Mojo, this too will give way to twin exhausts, as evident from these test mules.

If this is indeed the Yezdi Roadking Scrambler, it will be a new direction for Classic Legends, and it might be priced lower than the Jawa 42 and the Jawa Classic. However, since Royal Enfield is also working on updating the Classic 350 while also testing the Hunter 350, the Yezdi Scrambler will surely have tough competition on its hands when it does arrive.
