The Yezdi Roadking Scrambler has been spotted testing again. But this time around, it looks near-production ready. Expect Yezdi to launch the bike by early-2022 at a possible price of around Rs 1.7 lakh ex-showroom. Check out the bike here.
While the engine head looks similar to the one on the Jawa, the crankcase appears to be designed to look like the original Yezdi’s unit. In the Jawa, the 293cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor makes 27.33PS and 27.02Nm, but expect the powertrain to be tuned differently in the Yezdi Roadking Scrambler.
The bike employs a raked-out front fork, twin rear gas-charged shock absorbers, and disc brakes at both ends with ABS as standard. For better performance off the road, it rolls on spoke wheels wrapped with block pattern tyres.
In terms of rivals, the upcoming Yezdi Roadking Scrambler will slot right between the cheaper Hero XPulse 200 and the more premium Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and Royal Enfield Himalayan.
