The Yezdi Scrambler has a minimalistic, stripped down design, with a chopped off tail section. The Scrambler looks like a factory custom, and will appeal to those looking for a fun and thrilling machine, to take on the rough, and for weekend adventures, as well as the occasional long distance ride. The Scrambler gets a ribbed single-piece seat, a round headlight and tear-drop shaped fuel tank, and chrome-finished dual exhausts.
The Yezdi Roadster is designed for everyday use; for the daily commute, and primarily for in-city usage. In design, it’s the closest to the Jawa Forty-Two and will cater to a similar set of customers. The Yezdi Roadster is the closest in silhouette and stance to the original Yezdi bikes. Both the Scrambler and the Roadster come with a single, round, offset LCD display, along with round LED headlight, taillight and LED indicators.
Engine & Performance
All three bikes are based on the same 334 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine, and feature the same 6-speed gearbox.

The Yezdi Adventure makes the most power, to aid in covering long distances on the highway effortlessly, and also has punchy mid-range torque.
