There are many testing mules spotted again on the road, which is exciting news for Indian customers. Yezdi has been a name famous among bike enthusiasts and has become a largely collector’s item. But now the wait is over, Yezdi is back with a banger. In a video by Kaif Nasir an Indian YouTuber, we can see Yezdi testing its new ADV on roads.
The retro look of the bike is still evident with a modern styling makeover. The handlebar is set up high making the bike suitable for adventure and long tours. The vintage-looking bike still has a circular headlight and rear view mirror. The footpegs are centrally placed for riding comfort. For giving the bike a scrambler look, the bike is equipped with minimum fairing with a number plate mounted on the tyre hugger.

For braking, the bike is using disc brakes on both front and rear. To make the vehicle competitive, Yezdi is expected to give ABS as standard. Along with these features, we can also see tall visors for consumers to tuck in at high speeds.
The bike can be named Roadking and primarily rival Royal Enfield’s Hunter 350 and Himalayan. This new bike is expected to borrow the identical 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor from Jawa. The same is capable of generating max power of 27.3 ps and peak torque of 27 Nm. For transmission company uses a 6-speed mesh transmission.

It is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The price of Yezdi’s new ADV will be kept competitive to give good competition to its rival Royal Enfield. Price, we will come to know closed to the date of launch.
