    Yezdi Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan: specifications comparison
    Listen to this Article

    Does Yezdi’s newly launched adventure tourer have what it takes to topple the mighty Royal Enfield Himalayan?

    At long last, the iconic Yezdi brand has been revived. And one of the models in its new line-up is the Adventure. As its name suggests, it’s an adventure tourer and one that seems to have been benchmarked quite heavily against the Royal Enfield Himalayan. So, how do the two bikes stack up on paper?

    Yezdi Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan: engine

    EngineLiquid-cooled, single-cylinder 334cc engineOil-cooled, single-cylinder 411cc engine

    Torque29.9Nm at 6500rpm32Nm at 4000-4500rpm
    Gearbox6-speed5-speed

    It’s a tale of two different engine philosophies: the Yezdi has a short-stroke motor that revs high and produces a greater amount of power, while the Himalayan gets a slower-revving long-stroke engine that produces superior torque. The higher torque figure, combined with the fact that the Himalayan’s peak figures arrive a good deal earlier in the rev range, should make it the more suitable powertrain off-road. While the Adventure does have respectable output figures, the specs suggest that this engine will need to be revved harder to produce the desired results. Of course, we'll only know for sure once we've had a chance to ride the new Yezdis. On the upside, it does get an additional 6th gear over the Himalayan.

    This is the area where Yezdi’s benchmarking is most evident. The wheelbase, suspension travel and ground clearance figures for the Adventure are absolutely identical to those of the Himalayan. It even gets the same wheel sizes, and the size of the front tyre is identical, too. The Yezdi does have a slightly wider rear tyre and a slightly larger front disc brake; and even though it houses half a litre more fuel than the Enfield, it’s 11kg lighter. This should make it slightly more manageable, though the RE does claw back some ground with a slightly lower seat height.

    Yezdi Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan: features

    The Yezdi Adventure has a bit of an upper hand in the features department. Both bikes get dual-channel ABS, but the Yezdi has more ABS modes; both bikes get Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, but the Yezdi gets fully digital instrumentation compared to the Himalayan’s semi-digital design. The Adventure also gets full-LED lighting, which the RE misses out on.
