Yezdi Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan | which is better

Check out our detailed spec sheet comparison of the newly launched Yezdi Adventure and its main competitor, the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Yezdi’s first offerings in the Indian market are Adventure, Scrambler, and Roadster. The resurrected Yezdi brand, along with Jawa, will face stiff competition from Royal Enfield motorcycles in various segments.

Yezdi has created a lot of buzzes, and all that remains to be seen is whether they can live up to it. Here is a detailed comparison of Yezdi Adventure and its main competitor in India, RE Himalayan.

Yezdi Adventure (vs) Royal Enfield Himalayan

Design

If you’ve seen the spy photos, you’ll notice that Yezdi ADV has taken some design cues from its Royal Enfield rival. It has a round headlight, a tall windscreen, a beak-like front fender, a split seat setup, a top box mount on the tail, and other features. Even the side panels appear to be identical to those on Himalayan, and a front subframe is available as an option!

However, there are several differences, including a round taillight, a sharper tail section, and a block-shaped fuel tank. The engine cover has fake cooling fins, and the crankcase cover looks like an old Yezdis. With its bikes, Classic Legends has achieved a brilliant balance of retro and modern.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been around for a long time, and its design is well known. The circular headlight located on the front subframe, the curved fuel tank, the tall split-seat configuration, and the top box mount on the tail all contribute to the tough appearance.

Like Yezdi ADV, RE Himalayan accompanies wire-spoked wheels (21-inch front and 17-inch back on the two bicycles). Nonetheless, the Royal Enfield has a more old-fashioned feel to it, and its styling is somewhat more oversimplified than the Yezdi. All things considered, there is no reasonable victor between the two as far as design.

Features and Equipment

Yezdi’s ADV accompanies adjustable forks at the front and a mono-shock at the back. The instrument console is a completely advanced LCD unit, which offers cell phone availability through Bluetooth. Additionally, the instrument console is slant movable, and in this manner appropriate for both situated and remaining on-the-stakes riding positions.

Associated highlights incorporate turn-by-turn routes, cell phone warnings, trip subtleties, and rider profiles. Different elements on offer incorporate discs brakes on the two wheels, double channel ABS (three modes – Road, Off-street, and Rain), all-LED lighting, knuckle watches, jerry can mount, and pannier mounts.

On the Himalayan, Royal Enfield includes a semi-digital instrument console with the brand’s tripper navigation display. This Google-powered system provides turn-by-turn navigation but no other related capabilities.

The RE also has switchable dual-channel ABS, an LED taillight (halogen headlamps and turn indicators), telescopic front forks, and a mono-shock rear suspension. Furthermore, its fuel tank capacity is 15 litres (plus 0.5 litres reserve), which is comparable to Yezdi ADV’s 15.5-litre fuel tank. On the features front, the Yezdi comes out on top.

Engine specifications

Despite its smaller size, the Yezdi Adventure’s liquid-cooled, DOHC engine produces much more power than the RE Himalayan. However, the Royal Enfield has greater torque, but it is also substantially heavier.

In addition, the Yezdi has a 6-speed transmission, whilst the RE has a 5-speed transmission. On paper, the former appears to have the advantage, but we’ll have to wait and ride them together to see how they function in the real world.
