Yezdi Scrambler first impression

Once you get a grip on its weight and wide handlebar the Yezdi Scrambler offers a smooth ride We recently rode the new Yezdi motorcycles and the Yezdi Scrambler promises to be the most interesting as it is currently priced at But it is the only bike of its kind.

Design

The Yezdi Scrambler presents a handsome design with its dirt style front fender and small rear mudguard. Retaining the Jawa-style engine, the Scrambler’s engine features a rectangular design that helps identify it as a Yezdi.

The quality and level of finish of the bike is disappointing as some of the bolts are already showing rust, the handguards do not fit well, there are exposed wires for the tail-lamp and a rough finish is visible.

The seat of the Scrambler comes in a sleek ribbed pattern which is very hard and its seat height is 800 mm.

Features

The motorcycle gets a fully digital instrument console, which also offers a tachometer. A navigation system (with Bluetooth-enabled smartphone connectivity) is expected to be added later.

It has USB Type A and Type C charging outlets and can be adjusted by three modes for ABS, including an ‘Off Road’ mode that lets you deactivate the system on the rear wheel. The suspension system on the bike includes conventional forks and dual rear shockers.

Engine

The Yezdi Scrambler, however, comes with a 334 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that outputs 29 bhp along with 28 Nm of peak torque. This powerplant is paired with a six-speed gearbox. This shows that the Yezdi Scrambler is more powerful. The bike also has a slip assist clutch.

Brakes and Wheelbase

The motorcycle gets wire-spoke wheels (19-inch front and 17-inch rear) along with disc brakes on both wheels and adjustable dual-channel ABS (three modes – Road, Rain and Off). In terms of road standards, it is definitely a leader. The ground clearance of the Scrambler is 200 mm.

Accessories

The Scrambler is loaded with optional accessories, including a headlamp grille, small windscreen, hand-guards, leg guards and a rear luggage rack.

Price

Starting at Rs 2 lakh (ex-showroom) the Yezdi Scrambler is the only Scrambler at this price point so the Classic Legends deserves a round of applause for it.
