The legendary Yezdi brand has been brought back to life after a long hiatus. And the Adventure is one of the new models in the company’s line-up. It’s an adventure tourer, as its name implies, and it appears to have been significantly influenced by the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Which bike performs better on paper?

Engine

The Yezdi features a short-stroke engine that revs high and creates more power, while the Himalayan has a long-stroke engine that revs slower and generates more torque. When it comes to off-road driving, a vehicle with a higher torque rating and an engine that can reach its peak output earlier in its rpm range should be preferred. The Adventure’s output stats are decent, but the specifications indicate that this engine will need to be cranked higher in order to get the needed performance. However, we’ll know for sure once we get behind the wheel of the new Yezdis. On the plus side, it has a higher top speed than the Himalayan and a higher top speed.

Chassis

Yezdi’s benchmarking is most apparent in this area. The Adventure and Himalayan share the same wheelbase, suspension travel, and ground clearance. Even the tyre and tyre sizes for the front wheels and rims are the same. The rear tyres on the Yezdi are a little wider, and the front disc brake is a little bigger, but the Yezdi weighs 11 pounds less than the Enfield while having half a litre higher fuel capacity. Though the RE has a somewhat lower seat height, this should make it a little more manageable.

Both bikes are supported by a monoshock at the rear and standard telescopic forks at the front. The front and rear suspension travel on both motorcycles is identical at 200mm and 180mm, respectively, thanks to the use of identical suspension systems.
