Maybe your father learnt to ride a motorcycle on a Yezdi. Maybe you can learn how to ride a motorcycle on a modern-day Yezdi too, as the manufacturer is making a comeback with a strong portfolio.
Yet another motorcycle manufacturer from the past is making a comeback. Classic Legends, which looks over Jawa Motorcycles, will soon introduce one more motorcycle manufacture, which Gen-Z might not have heard of. Yezdi, the motorcycle maker that shut shop back in 1996, is making a comeback. Its first product is likely to be a retro-modern motorcycle, which could be called Roadking.
The Roadking is likely to be based on the same platform as the Jawa Classic and Forty-Two and will share most of its underpinnings with other Jawa motorcycles.
Just like Jawa Classic, which gets its styling and design from the Jawa motorcycle from the past, the Roadking will follow a similar design philosophy, which means that e the upcoming modern-classic motorcycle will most likely adopt design cues from the Yezdi of the days gone by.
Alongside the modern classic, we’re expecting Yezdi to take the wraps off the adventure and scrambler motorcycles it has been testing in the recent past. For now, it's unclear where will Yezdi position its new off-road motorcycle, but it seems like Yezdi is planning to get a slice of the affordable ADV segment, which is already occupied by motorcycles ranging from the Hero Xpulse 200 4V to KTM 390 Adventure.
However, we will find that out very soon when the company will make an official announcement on January 13, 2022. So, stay tuned.
