Legendary Yezdi 350 Series Might Relaunch In 2018 – We Explain


People are often heard telling stories about how they rode this bike and the bike was a part of their body. The bike which has won several races and rallies across the world said, ‘Forever Bike, Forever Value’. It is none other than the legendary Yezdi 350 series. The bike touched many lives and changed them forever. 

Back in 1964, there was one Fariborz Irani, who was a famous bike racer. He won many rallies and races across the world with his beloved Yezdi 350. With him, there are a lot of people who share their stories with this cult guru, who taught Indians to ride with style. The bike stopped way back in time, but still has a huge fan base, who regularly take their Yezdi’s out for a spin. Recently, Yezdi’s own website was created by Mahindra indicating that it might relaunch in India. Also, at the start of the year, it was revealed globally with the similar design but new engines. If relaunched in India, it will go by the name of its parent company, Jawa Motorcycles. This bike will go against the reigning Royal Enfield Bullet and Classic. new yezdi 350 india launch

The new 2017 Jawa 350 was revealed some months ago. Much like its predecessor, the new motorcycle has a 350 cc heart and its design pays homage to the original one. A big difference, however, is that the engine is no more a 2-stroke unit. The company has used a 4-stroke motor in order to meet the much stricter emission norms of today’s day and age. So, it will lose its earlier engine and that classic noise but will get the same body. One of the good things about such restored or revived bikes is that they get almost the same body, but they lose their engines, their iconic throttle sound and also cheap pricing.

New Yezdi 350 Launch Date

Launch Date (expected) Late 2018

Mahindra hasn’t yet made an official announcement on the launch date of the new bike. However, it’s worth a note here that the manufacturer recently launched the official website for Yezdi. This, along, hints at a fast-approaching launch. Subsequently, its launch could happen at the end of 2018.

Production of the new Yezdi 350 will take place at Mahindra’s Pithampura facility. The new bike will be also exported as the new Jawa 350. We await an official word on the launch date at the moment. However, you can watch this space for all the news updates on the new Yezdi 350 launch date.

New Yezdi 350 Price

Price (expected) Rs 1.5 lakh

Price of the new 350cc Yezdi model will be announced only at the time of its launch. However, Mahindra has been pretty vocal about positioning this new brand as a lifestyle offering. This means there’s a high chance of prices being on the higher side. We’re expecting a price of Rs 1.5 lakh for the upcoming model. The new bike will be manufactured locally and India will be the export hub for this new model. The new offering will go on to rival the Royal Enfield Classic 350.

The new model 350cc Yezdi will have the same single-cylinder 350cc engine that powers the 2017 Jawa 350. This engine comes from a Chinese engine manufacturer, Shineray. Essentially, this engine is based on an old Honda engine. The motor outputs a max. power of 26 BHP and a peak torque of 32 Nm. It comes mated to a four-speed manual transmission.

While the ARAI mileage figure will be out only around the launch, it’s possible that this engine will offer a maximum mileage of 30 KMPL. Based on a slightly outdated engine, the motor won’t be as efficient as some of its modern counterparts.
