As the date of Yezdi’s resurrection is closing in, the brand has released an official teaser video of its upcoming ‘scrambler’ motorcycle which will be heavily based on the Jawa twins.
Until now we have only seen the spy shots of the upcoming Yezdi motorcycle. However, Yezdi has now officially given us a quick glimpse of its upcoming product, which we suspect, is likely to be named the Roadking. The Roadking nametag harks back to the old Yezdi Roadking from the late 70s.
Coming to the teaser video released by Yezdi, it confirms that the production version of the Roadking is will have spoke wired wheels. The motorcycle will have an exhaust end-can on either side. The wheel hugger for the rear tyre will mount the number plate of the motorcycle. This is a design cue which is noticed on other scrambler motorcycles, such as the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250.
The handlebar appears to be positioned high which is more suited for off-road/rough-road riding. More interestingly, the new motorcycle will not have a mono-shock suspension in the rear, instead, the motorcycle will utilise a dual shock absorber.
The motorcycle is likely to sport scrambler like styling which may include minimum body panels and exposed engine and cycle parts.
If observed with a keen eye, the teaser video also gives a peek at the engine block design. Despite the engine block showcasing cooling-fins, the motorcycle is likely to feature a liquid cooling system. The radiator of which is observed right in front. The engine is likely to be based on Jawa’s 300cc motor which will use a six-speed transmission.
The official unveiling will be held on January 13, 2022, and we’re expecting not one but, two Yezdi motorcycles to break cover. A scrambler motorcycle which is most probably the one is the teaser video, and the second one is likely to be a dedicated off-road motorcycle more in line with the Royal Enfield Himalayan, and the KTM 390 Adventure.
