Why does this story matter?
The Yezdi brand will make its comeback in the Indian market by Classic Legends, the owner of Jawa.

The two-wheeler will go against the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and shall increase competition in the entry-level cruiser bike segment in the country.
The bike will have a chromed exhaust and pillion backrest
The Yezdi Roadking will have a sloping fuel tank, a stepped-up seat, a lengthy chromed exhaust, a circular headlight, bar-end mirrors, a pillion backrest, a curved rear fender, and a raised windscreen. It should pack a digital instrument console, a full-LED setup for lighting, and shall ride on blacked-out alloy wheels. Its kerb weight and fuel storage capacity are unclear as of now.
It will run on a 31hp, 334cc engine
The Yezdi Roadking might draw power from a BS6-compliant 334cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine sourced from the Jawa Perak. The mill churns out a maximum power of 30.64hp and a peak torque of 32.74Nm.
There will be disc brakes on both the wheels
In terms of safety equipment, the Yezdi Roadking is likely to be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the motorbike should be taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and a shock absorber on the rear end.

Yezdi will announce the availability and pricing details of the Roadking in India at the time of its launch. However, the two-wheeler is expected to sport a price-tag of around Rs. 2.1 lakh (ex-showroom).
