The Yezdi Scrambler is one of the cool looking bikes ever that went on sale in India. This motorcycle has a combination of good features, good performance and styling that makes this motorcycle quite aspirational. The Yezdi Scrambler has seen the blue skies embraced by warm sunlight, the taste of tarmac leading to muddier roads, the smell of the rains. Now, it is yearning to feast on the world some more as it already has a taste of the world.
Classic Legends has introduced the Yezdi Scrambler in the Indian market. This new, retro-style motorcycle uses a 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that give a peak torque of 28.2Nm at 6,750rpm and power of 28.7bhp at 8,000rpm. This engine mates with a six-speed transmission gearbox. Yezdi Scrambler comes up with an anti-locking braking system with both front and rear disc brakes.
In terms of styling, the new Yezdi Scrambler has a neo-retro design with a rugged personality that aims for soft off-road. The styling cues comprise a chrome fuel lid, a tall front fender, wire-spoke wheels, a curvy fuel tank, upswept exhaust canisters, an off-set instrument cluster, a tyre hugger-mounted rear number plate and a ribbed pattern for the seat cover. The feature list includes full-LED lighting and a digital instrument cluster and misses Bluetooth connectivity.
Other standard features on the Scrambler include handlebar-mounted USB and Type-C charging points and three-level ABS. The hardware on the Scrambler includes twin-sided rear springs and telescopic front forks. The wire-spoke wheels come in 19-inch front and 17-inch rear diameters and wrap in tube-type tyres.

Yezdi initially called the Ideal Jawa (India) Ltd and was an Indian motorcycle company located at Mysore. At the beginning of 1960, the licence of Jawa Motorcycles was sold under the brand name Jawa. And from 1973 as Yezdi. These bikes were preferred rally bikes in the ’80s and ’90s. Jawa and Yezdi bikes, especially with fuel tank padding and ignition systems on the fuel tank, are now collectors’ items. Unfortunately, the company stopped production in 1996. Though the Yezdi bikes are vintage to the present day, many people in India are crazy about bikes and own them. There are still several bike enthusiasts and bike clubs across the country where some of them are even organizing long-distance rallies. Starting January 13, 2022, the Yezdi brand has been reintroduced in the Indian market by Classic Legends after a gap of 25 years. Now, three models are launched by Yezdi- Adventure, Roadster and Scrambler.
