Yezdi brand is all set to make a comeback in the Indian market. Mahindra backed, Classic Legends is gearing up to review the old-school motorcycle brand in the country. The company has also trademarked the Yezdi Roadking name in India.
According to the reports from ET Auto, the company is looking to launch the Yezdi Roadking BS6 motorcycle sometime ahead of Diwali this year. Yezdi will be the second brand adding to the Classic Legend's line-up.
The company has successfully received the Jawa brand in the Indian market. Currently, there are three motorcycles offered by the brand, the Jawa Classic, the Forty-Two and the flagship Perak. The Classic and the Forty-Two motorcycles share the same engine, while the Perak bobber is powered by a more powerful unit.
The Yezdi Roadking when launched is expected to use the same engine found on the Jawa Classic and the Forty-Two motorcycles. It is a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 293cc engine. It produces a maximum of 26.2bhp and a peak torque of 27.05Nm. The engine continues to come mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The upcoming Yezdi motorcycle has been spotted testing a couple of times in the country. However, very few details were leaked as the test mules were completely camouflaged. Much like the Jawa motorcycles, models launched under Yezdi is also expected to feature an old-school design with a modern touch.
Other mechanicals on the Yezdi Roadking such as suspension, brakes and wheels are expected to be borrowed from the Jawa 300 twins. However, the frame of the motorcycle will be different to suit the different design of the Yezdi motorcycles.
The report also states that, alongside the Yezdi, Classic Legends is also working on reviving the BSA brand in the Indian market. The BSA motorcycle brand's resurrection is being planned with an all-new in-house developed 650cc engine.
The details of the new engine are scarce at the moment. However, we can expect them to be a twin-cylinder arrangement. The engine is currently being fine-tuned to comply with the UK emission norms.
Classic Legends initially want to revive the BSA brand for the UK market in low volumes. The bikes are expected to be showcased by the company at the Eicma 2021 in Milan later this year. The company has already commissioned a dedicated assembly line for the premium BSA motorcycles at the Pithampur plant.
Due to the increasing popularity of electric vehicles in the country and across the world, Classic Legends is also said to be working on an electric motorcycle under the BSA brand. The unveil or launch timelines for BSA motorcycles are yet to be known.
Thoughts About The Yezdi Roadking India Launch Scheduled Before Diwali This Year
Yezdi motorcycles have a huge fan following much like other old school bike brands in the country. The company is looking to revive the brand and cater to the fans in India and overseas. Alongside Jawa and Yezdi, the company is also looking to revive one of the most iconic motorcycle brands in the world, BSA.
