Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure: Design
Despite Himalayan being 7 years old, Yezdi decided to take inspiration from it. Because of this, the Yezdi Adventure just looks like an evolution of the Himalayan with some updates. Both the motorcycles follow function over form philosophy. So, there is an exo-skeleton to protect the motorcycle in case of a fall. The same skeleton can be used to mount jerry cans. The motorcycles do look like proper adventure tourers with a windscreen in the front, a large front wheel, spoked rims etc.
