Design

Yezdi adventure is a full-blown adventure tourer with the spoke wheels, high-mounted beak fender, a large windshield, an amazing ground clearance, and long-travel suspension on both ends. The bike looks rugged and ready for action. While designing a tourer motorcycle, more emphasis is put on utility. A similar design philosophy has been used on the Adventure. Upfront, we get to see a circular LED headlight and clear circular indicators. Just below the light is the fender.

The bike gets two fenders, one close to the tire as well. The bike gets good undercarriage protection and a blackened engine bash plate. The bike is slim, and gets loads of racks and protecting rails on the sides. The exhaust is swept upwards for better off-road capabilities. The bike gets a dual-tone color scheme where only the fuel tank and the front beak carry the body paint rest is covered in black. The bike rides on 21-inch and 17-inch spoke wheels for more durability. The bike also gets many accessories like luggage boxes, knuckle guards, and a headlight mesh.
