Classic Legends brought in the Jawa brand in 2018 and introduced Yezdi motorcycles in January 2022 with three bikes Yezdi Roadster, Scrambler and Adventure. Set to add more updates to Jawa and Yezdi products in the coming year, the company has also planned network expansion across the country. With around 400 touchpoints in India, plans are afoot to expand to 500 outlets by Dec 2023.
Even as a case was filed by Ideal Jawa Employees Association against the use of Yezdi trademark and a recent court ruling has banned Classic Legends from using the same, the company has stated that production and sales will continue while they will be challenging the court order and expect to see a favourable outcome.
