Engine & Transmission

Suspension, Brakes & Frame
The ADV motorcycle uses a double-cradle frame to strike a perfect balance between weight, rigidity and cost-effectiveness.
Suspension duties on the motorcycle are handled by a telescopic fork at the front with 200 travel and an adjustable mono-shock with 180mm travel at the rear. This gives the motorcycle a ground clearance of 220mm with a rider seat height of 815mm.
Braking on the motorcycle is done via a 320mm single disc up-front and a 240mm unit at the rear supported by a dual-channel ABS. The ABS also gets three modes: Rain, Road and Off-road for various weather and road conditions.
Wheels & Tyres
The Yezdi Adventure features a 21-inch spoke rim shod with a 90/90 section tyre at the front and a 17-inch spoke rim shod with a 130/80 section tyre at the rear. Tyres feature a block-pattern tread for on and off-road use.
Design & Features

Thoughts About The Yezdi Adventure India Launch
Yezdi was once a household brand in India with their motorcycles roaring the streets during the 2-stroke era between the 1960s and the 1990s. However, the brand has been revived by Classic Legends who also got us the Jawa.
The Yezdi Adventure has all the makings of a good entry-level adventure motorcycle and rivals the likes of the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Hero XPulse and the KTM 250 Adventure.
