Classic Legends announced the revival of the defunct brand ‘Yezdi’ in the Indian market with the debut of three motorcycles. Under the Yezdi moniker, Classic Legends launched a Roadster, Scrambler and an Adventure motorcycle. Ironically, the names and design languages on each of the three coincide with their names. However, the coincidence is not just with the name but also with the design. While the Scrambler and Roadster come with a unique look, the Adventure appears to draw inspiration from the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Thus, we bring you a specifications comparison between the Yezdi Adventure and the Royal Enfield Himalayan, as looks are subjective.
