Yezdi has broken free from its chains. The age-old two-wheeler manufacturer is all set to face modern times. Among the three offerings from Yezdi, Adventure is the most peculiar. It is the first ADV from the brand and it packs some serious grunt. But its performance in the market will be defined by its competition. In recent times the Indian ADV market has seen the addition of several bikes. From the KTM Adventure 250 to Benelli TRK 251 to RE Himalayan, all are capable adventure tourers and will give tough competition to the Yezdi Adventure. Let’s deep dive into the specs and features of all 4 bikes, so you can choose the right bike as per your needs.
