What to expect

The Roadking is set to return as the flagship offering from Yezdi. It will sit at the top of the range and it won’t share its platform with the others which is derived from Jawa. Expect the new Roadking to feature an all-new styling with retro bits thrown in. Retro bikes have a huge fan following and Yezdi will be looking to capitalize on the nostalgia created by the Roadking. The Roadking is expected to share its powertrain with the recently unveiled BSA Goldstar.

This makes it a capable daily commuter that can handle the occasional soft off-roading. The Roadster is the cheapest offering in the Yezdi lineup. In terms of design, Yezdi Roadster offers the retro-cruiser look that has adapted to modern times. The round headlamp bowl, teardrop fuel tank, and the long and straight dual exhausts flaunt the Yezdi design from the time of the Roadking
