Complete details of Yezdi RoadKing Motorcycle

Launched in India in 1978. Yezdi RoadKing is not in production now. Discontinued in 1996.

Yezdi Roadking is considered to be one of the classic 2-stroke motorcycle ever to be built in India. It was produced by Ideal Jawa Ltd, in their facility at Mysore. They used to manufacture this motorcycle from 1978 to 1996. Roadking was the successor of Yezdi OilKing, which was a market failure due to some technical drawbacks. This particular bike was quiet famous in rallies and road races across India. And due to this particular reason, this was one such bike with so many fans and followers.

The bike sits on a 250cc, air-cooled, two stroke single cylinder engine with twin exhaust and uses a kick start for starting the engine. It can draw a maximum torque of 2.43 kgm @ 4250 rpm and cruise to a top speed of 120 kmph. The Yezdi Roadking uses the cylinder block from 1974 CZ. Like all Yezdi models, this one also uses same rod for kick starting and gear shifting. This bike also features semi-automatic clutch.

The braking force of Roadking lies in the hands of twin cam double leading shoe at the front and single cam single leading shoe at the rear. The front suspension of this bike features a telescopic forks with hydraulic shock absorbers and rear part has hydraulic shock absorbers alone.

Like the iconic Ideal Jawa, the Roadking too has the same original Tesla headlight bulb. This 250 cc bike uses twin exhaust ports and makes a good exhaust note, satisfies the rider in all manner. This Czechoslovakian bike has been on Indian roads for over a decade and we can see this bike cruising in and around our neighbourhood. Like all other 2-stroke bikes we had, this one also doing good business in the second-hand sale market.

Gone are the days for solid bikes like Roadking, Yezdi, Classic.... People link only those bike made of fiber and plastic.... The real men need though steel, metallic body of bikes with roaring sound .....Roadking and all the models of JAWA are the best bikes of all the time... Waiting for its restart
