Question Jawa Yezdi still being produced???

I recently came across a interesting writeup on the Jawa bikes, at the overdrive forum. Then I googled a bit and came across the yezdi website of Ideal Jawa. It contains all the tech specs about the Yezdi products.

Just wondoring if the Yezdi range is still available in the market Does anyone have a idea about this??

yezdi website: IDEAL JAWA ( INDIA ) LIMITED

They are not producing the Yezdi anymore. I guess they kept the website up only for vintage / information purpose.

Hi - Unfortunately no ! The factory in/near Mysore shut operations quite some time back almost 15 years ago and the whole place was mired in labour conflicts etc. Ultimately the plant and land was sold off or something is what I heard last ? Isn't this right ?

My Dad had an Jawa, way back in 90s but I was too young even to touch it without the stand :(. Now I want to ride it, after reading so many good things from this forum, but he sold it off way back. Will try and get my hands on one of them for sure. There are still quite a few running around in my village.

Hi! Guys,

I too owned a lovely Yezdi Roadking, really repent for selling it. Wish they would continue the bikes with all the latest technology. The Roadking really felt like a bike, no piddly 125cc, 135cc, 100cc. Nice big 250CC of an engine.

Wish I could buy it again, brand new.
