The Yezdi Scrambler styling is dripping of mischief with a typical scrambler fly line - simple seat with a classic round tank, tucked in headlamp along with an offset speedo pod, upright/commanding handlebar position, typical scrambler twin exhausts, on/off-road tyres along a front fender beak give a distinct character to the machine.
The scrambler produces 29.1PS@8000rpm of peak power & peak torque of 28.2Nm@6750rpm and a flat torque curve. It comes with telescopic forks at the front and gas-charged twin shocks at the rear.

Braking too is top of the line with disc brakes on both ends and dual-channel ABS by Continental, with three switchable modes – Road, Rain & Off-road for more flexible performance. The headlamp, tail lamps and blinkers are all equipped with LED while the digital speedometer has several features that make it a much more equipped and relevant riding experience.

Alloy wheels along with fat tyres, flanked by chopped fenders add to the beefy looks. There is a digital speedometer at the head of the motorcycle while the headlamps and the indicators are LEDs.
