The Yezdi Scrambler is the most affordable scrambler-styled motorcycle on sale in India right now, and promises to be a fun package!
The Yezdi Scrambler is one of the three new Yezdi models launched by Classic Legends, the parent company of Jawa Motorcycles. The Yezdi Scrambler is based on the same 334 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC engine, but has a different state of tune than the Yezdi Roadster and Yezdi Adventure. The Scrambler is designed to be an accessible and fun bike, for mild off-road duties, and retains that cool, modern classic vibe, while looking like a true-blue factory custom. Positioned at the middle of the three new Yezdi motorcycles range, here’s a look at what the Scrambler offers.
The Yezdi Scrambler has a minimalistic design, and still retains the classic look with the round headlamp, teardrop-shaped fuel tank and chrome-finished dual exhaust, with a chopped-off tail section. The tall and wide set handlebars with an upright riding position should offer a comfortable riding position, and a commanding view of what’s ahead of the rider. The Scrambler also comes with knee pads on the 12.5 litre fuel tank, a ribbed seat and a chopped tail section and a different rear subframe.
The instrument console is a round LCD unit, which is offset, and is somewhat reminiscent of the Ducati Scrambler’s instrument pod. The Scrambler comes with LED headlamp and taillight, clear lens LED indicators as well as handlebar-mounted USB and Type C charging points. The Scrambler also gets a three-level ABS with Road, Off-Road and Rain settings.
Engine & Performance
Like the other Yezdi bikes, the Scrambler also shares the same 334 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine, but has a slightly different state of tune. On the Scrambler, the engine is tuned 28.7 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 28.2 Nm of peak torque at 6,750 rpm.
Chassis & Suspension
Amongst the three Yezdi motorcycles, the Scrambler is the shortest, with a wheelbase of 1,403 mm. It runs on a 19-inch front wire spoke wheel and 17-inch rear wire spoke wheel, with tyres suited for mild off-road use. Suspension travel is more than the Roadster with 150 mm front wheel travel, and gas-charged twin rear shock absorbers with preload adjustability and 130 mm travel, but less than the Adventure. It also gets 200 mm ground clearance, and should be enough for some fun outings in the dirt.
Colours & Prices
The Yezdi Scrambler is available in a choice of six colours in all, with prices ranging from ₹ 2.05 lakh (Ex-showroom), going up to ₹ 2.11 lakh (Ex-showroom).
