Speaking on the new Yezdi Motorcycles, Anupam Thareja, Co-Founder, Classic Legends said, ““It is not every day that you get to celebrate the comeback of an iconic motorcycle, let alone the likes of a legend like Yezdi. While its spirit lived on through its die-hard community and in the mind and hearts of every rider, the anticipation to see it take over the Indian roads again, has been unbelievable. We have the legacy but now we will create our own lineage. Being a motorcyclist myself, this is a moment of catharsis. As custodians of the brand, we made sure that we preserve and celebrate Yezdi’s and the Yezdi rider’s essence in these new avatars. I am sure every Yezdi lover, will feel that - designed with passion and indulgent beliefs, then engineered to purpose, to make you fall in love with this motorcycle and motorcycling, again!”
Adding to this, Boman Irani, Co-Founder, Classic Legends said, “The Yezdi brand is all about stories and emotions. That’s what has kept it alive, and this is exactly what we want to build on for the future. The new Yezdi motorcycles are not just motorcycles, but a way of life. They’re a medium for riders to go out there, create more memories and have unparalleled fun while doing so. It is a never ending adventure that has just gone to the next level!”
Speaking on the new models, Ashish Joshi, CEO, Classic Legends, said, “The biggest challenge for us while developing the new Yezdi motorcycle(s) was to keep the spirit intact. We also knew that the motorcycle riders have evolved over the last few decades and followed a very focussed approach. What you see now are three motorcycles ‘purpose-built’ for rider requirements across the spectrum. We have always been about redefining the Modern Classic segment in the country and have gone ahead and did just that.”
To amp up the lifestyle quotient and complement the applications they’re built for, each Yezdi model will also come with its own range of accessories, carefully curated to enhance the visual appeal and functionality for the rider. The accessory range will also be available across dealerships.
