The upcoming Royal Enfield Scram 411 is expected to make its debut soon; however, the segment will be dominated by two motorcycles until then – the Yezdi Scrambler and the Honda CB350RS.

One of the three Yezdi motorcycles that were launched yesterday was a scrambler. The Yezdi Scrambler is effectively a mildly off-road biased motorcycle. Similarly, the slightly sporty version of the H’ness CB350, the CB350RS, qualifies to be a scrambler in more than one way. Both motorcycles feature a modern engine, retro-styling, and have closely matched price tags. This calls for a specification comparison.


The Yezdi Scrambler is powered by the 334cc powertrain, which we have seen in the Jawa Perak. This engine provides a power output that is substantially higher than that of the 348cc motor of the CB350RS. Moreover, the Scrambler uses liquid-cooling for heat management, whereas the CB350RS gets the basic air-cooling method. Similarly, the CB350RS features a five-speed gearbox, while the Scrambler gets a six-speed one.

Now, the Scrambler has its intentions clear. The motorcycle can be taken off-road, as it features long-travel suspension, decent ground clearance, and spoke-wire wheels.

The Honda CB350RS gets alloys, which are relatively easy to maintain; but ideally, off-roaders prefer a spoke wire setup, which is naturally more robust in its construction. Hence, motorcycles such as the Hero Xpulse 200 4V and the Himalayan feature spoke-wire wheels.

Now, something similar can’t be said about the CB350RS. It comes across as a more road-biased motorcycle, with its relatively lower ground clearance, alloy wheels setup, and road-biased suspension geometry. However, the motorcycle does feature dual-purpose tyres.

The ABS on offer with the Yezdi Scrambler features three modes – Road, Off-road, and Rain. The ABS on offer with the CB350RS is a dual-channel one, which cannot be turned off.


The Yezdi Scrambler gets a headlamp and knuckle guards, which are a good touch, considering that Scrambler could be the first motorcycle for many first-time off-roaders. The CB350RS, on the other hand, sports a clean and tidy look, without any such guards.

The Scrambler gets an LCD instrument cluster and a handlebar-mounted USB Type-C port to charge your phone. 

There are loads of accessories on offer with both motorcycles.


The prices of the two motorcycles are closely matched; however, the Honda undercuts the Yezdi’s pricing by a small margin. The CB350RS is priced at Rs 2.01 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycle can be had in two variants, which effectively means that the buyers get two colour choices.
