Mahindra backed by Classic Legends is set to re-launch the Yezdi brand in India. After years of speculation, it has become clear that the Yezdi motorcycle brand will be re-imported to India this year.
It is expected that the re-launch event will take place in the pre-Diwali season this year, setting a timeline for the launch in October.
The launch of the new-generation Yezdi bike is important for the Classic Legends business in India as the Jawa brand has not shot at all cylinders since its launch in November 2018.
This is where the re-launch of Yezdi India comes into play, for, the brand is expected to bring additional sales that could help the Classic Legends business case.
Note that, in March, a scrambler-type motorcycle, expected to be Yezdi’s first bike, was spotted conducting a road test on the Pune-Nashik highway.
Engine and transmission
The new Yezdi bike is expected to feature the same 293cc, cooler, single-cylinder engine that gives Java power. Paired with a 6-speed gearbox, the engine produces 26.51 bhp of power and 27Nm of torque. The Jawa Perak comes with a powerful 30bhp, 344cc engine paired with a 6-speed gearbox.
Features and specifications
A new retro-classic scrambler, possibly a new Yezdi bike, was recently caught testing the Pune-Nashik Highway. The motorcycle was equipped with advanced features such as a digital console, an LED headlamp, and a tail lamp, and an ABS dual power station.

Yezdi India Relaunch
This could be the first new Yezdi motorcycle to be launched in India. In addition, Yezdi bikes will share several parts with the Jawas and can even be built on the same assembly line in Pithampur. Last year, Classic Legends increased its monthly production from 4000 units to 7000 units.
BSA 650CC Engine
Classic Legends engineers have also launched a new 650cc middleweight BSA motorcycle engine. The new engine is in the advanced stages of testing. The new BSA motorcycles will be introduced in the UK, and the new powertrain will be in line with new European discharge practices. New BSA motorcycles are likely to be manufactured in India and assembled overseas. In addition, a dedicated BSA premium motorcycle assembly line is set at the Pithampur plant.
