Yezdi Roadking 350

Yezdi Roadking 350 Launch in India

Yezdi Roadking 350 – Ideal Jawa (India) Ltd was an India-based motorcycle company established in Mysore which started selling its licensed Jawa motorcycles beginning in 1960 & later in 1973 as Yezdi. Since backed by Mahindra’s classic two-wheeler arm, the company is trying to revive its long-lost legacy. As an attempt, it’s planning to launch a few modern-looking bikes built on different platforms & for different segments.

The spied photos of this new bike along with its other siblings have been surfaced recently while road testing & while shooting for official TVC. The other bikes from the brand of Yezdi are a cruiser variant & a scrambler spec variant (with mono seat).

As far as Yezdi’s ADV sport tourer is concerned, let’s dig deep & see what more it has to offer for the Indian market.

Pricing

We are expecting the pricing in the range of Rs 2.0 lakhs to Rs 2.20 lakhs, (Ex-showrooms). And the official launching can happen in or after the first quarter of the coming year.

Engine & Transmission Specs

The new Yezdi Roadking 350 ADV will share its power plant from the earlier Jawa siblings. Powering a 334 cc, single-cylinder, the liquid-cooled engine this same engine also powers the Jawa Perak. The engine is capable of cranking out 30.6 PS of power & 32.7 Nm of torque connected to a 6-speed gearbox.

Brakes, wheels & suspensions

Enabled with ABS, Yezdi has provided a single disc rotor on both front & rear wheels, manufactured by the company Bybee. The wheels have been kept multipurpose type with a 19” at front & 17” at the rear. The wire-spokes wheel rims look robust & match the adventure DNA of the bike.

The suspension duties are carried out by conventional telescopic forks on the front & a mono shock-up at the rear with preload adjustment option.

Looks, Features & Riding Ergonomics

On the first look, it resembles Royal Enfield Himalayan. The round headlight looks derived from the older Yezdi (with front beak-newly added). The front headlights with their round housing, taillight & side indicators all are LEDs. The digital instrument cluster is all weatherproof and looks good. Over the headlights, there is a tall windscreen, a wide handlebar (with knuckle guards) & side protection for the fuel tank & a radiator that also adds up as the mounting for the Jerry Cans (refer photos) or extra luggage.

At the bottom, there is a chunky-looking bash plate. Looks like it can take some serious blows coming from the bad road conditions. The split two-piece seat looks well crafted. The up-swept exhaust muffler at the back end along with the top-box mount & panniers is well-thought execution to make it one of the top contenders. All these features make the new Yezdi ADV one of the best motorcycles in its segment.

The tall stance, high ground clearance, upright seating with center-mounted foot pegs all deliver road & off-road centric riding features. With its ability to haul extra luggage & as far the looks can tell, the bike seems comfortable for long-distance touring.
In short, the hardware specs are capable enough to give the riders a stress-free touring experience, especially on bad stretches. The engine with its entire grunt seems well mated for mile-munching rides. What remains to see is, whether it’s capable enough to attract the adventure junkies searching for a trustworthy 2-wheeler commuter.

In conclusion, this will be a good buy for the people looking for an outstanding motorcycle on a budget.
