Yezdi Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan: spec 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

Engine
Yezdi Adventure Royal Enfield Himalayan
Engine Liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 334cc engine Oil-cooled, single-cylinder 411cc engine
Power 30.2hp at 8000rpm 24.3hp at 6500rpm
Torque 29.9Nm at 6500rpm 32Nm at 4000-4500rpm
Gearbox 6-speed 5-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.

Yezdi Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan: chassis

Chassis
Yezdi Adventure Royal Enfield Himalayan
Kerb Weight 188kg 199kg
Seat Height 815mm 800mm
Wheelbase 1465mm 1465mm
Fuel Capacity 15.5 litres 15 litres
Suspension (f) Telescopic fork (200mm travel) Telescopic fork (200mm travel)
Suspension (r) Monoshock (180mm travel) Monoshock (180mm travel)
Tyres (f) 90/90-21 90/90-21
Tyres (r) 130/80-17 120/90-17
Brakes (f) 320mm disc 300mm disc
Brakes (r) 240mm disc 240mm disc
Ground Clearance 220mm 220mm

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.
