I’m 6’2 and ride a Royal Enfield Himalayan on all kinds of terrain.
BHPian lancia_fanboy recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Recently test rode all 3 of the Yezdi bikes.
Here are some of my observations:
Some context: I am a tall guy (6’2) and have a Himalayan that I have ridden a lot in the kind of terrain it was designed for.
- The chassis is very sorted, and it’s a flick-able bike, the only problem for tall people is that it will start hurting the bottom of your palms because of the weird handlebar positioning. I get that it’s made for being ridden while standing up, but that’s often a tiny portion of the ride.
- Clutch is very finicky, and you get a very KTM-esque feel while riding it, it’s not very forgiving or has a considerable margin for error. I loved it for the short time I rode it, but I can see it becoming a problem on any long ride.
- Loved the odometer placement, and didn’t like almost everything else. Granted I might be biased while writing this, but the suspension is not as good as Himalayan’s, the engine seems dead at the low end (which will be a problem if you’re off the beaten path) and the seating position felt a bit like Himalayan seating position, just tilted a bit backward.
- Honestly, the most sorted of the bunch. Has a good seating position, rides well, and has a decent response from the engine. Yet couldn’t justify it for the price point.
Some common points for all the bikes:
