I guess that's what he is looking for. If yes, then you can get it in JC road and it shouldn't cost more than 200 - 300 bucks. Dont buy the tarpaulin material as it gets very heavy when wet. Buy the "parachute" material. Its light, washable and waterproof's the vehicle to a large extent.

Thanks for all the replies. Had to walk a few shops on JC Road to find one that fits the Yezdi. I bought a cover for about Rs. 225, silver color umbrella material; gets the job done.

Remember to clip it on becuse with the winds you may have a parachute flying away from your bike

I use a Enfield's cover, plastic car cover material got it for 250 bucks.
Only problem is that it tears when something grazes against it.

Remember to fix the cover all around the bike i.e not leave it hanging around the sides. extra size helps in doing that, so it covers the domes all around and also helps in fixing the cover.

Sorry for the very late response. As you head towards town hall, this is probably the last store selling tarpaulins/covers, on the left side of JC road. I dont recall the name (Mahalakshmi?)
