Good news for all the Royal Enfield fans out there. In the coming year of 2022, Royal Enfield is about to launch a new street adventure based on Himalayan. Rumors are that the new bike-sharing the same Himalayan DNA will be named Scram 411. (Royal Enfield trademarked the new name a few months back). The bike will have most of the parts straight borrowed from its elder sibling the Himalayan. The company is planning to make an affordable Himalayan and the Scram 411 is the answer to that. So let’s have a detailed look at the bike to figure out its similarities and differences to the Himalayan, and how potent or street-able it is.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 Price
A price from 1.9 Lakh to 2.5 Lakh is what we are expecting during the launch of the motorcycle. This will make it a bit cheaper than the Himalayan.
Engine & Transmission
The New Scram 411 with its adventure-style body design looks similar to Royal Enfield’s iconic Himalayan. The bike uses the same single-cylinder, air-cooled 411 CC churning out 24.3 BHP @ 6500 RPM and producing 32 Nm of peak torque @ 4500 RPM. The transmission (5-speed gearbox) is most probably unchanged & kept as it is to that of the Himalayan, so as the exhaust system.
Keep in mind that the Scram 411 is not going to be a full hardcore off-road bike, rather it has a more street-focused design approach with some respectable off-road capabilities. And expectations are that the engine will deliver a better fuel mileage from the Himalayan.
Wheels, Brakes & Suspensions
The wheels look a little smaller in size maybe a 19” instead of the bigger 21” in the Himalayan. The rear wheel is unchanged.
The braking hardware & suspension units look unchanged, might have been borrowed from the Himalayan’s inventory. (The bike for sure, does offer ABS).
New Looks & Features
The front is the same, with round headlights housing the orange turn indicators. The headlight placement is a little lower & more tucked in than the Himalayan (giving it a street-focused vibe). Scram 411 uses the same instrumentation cluster as Meteor 350. There is no windscreen too, they decided to remove it to make it look more road bike. The fuel tank braces on the Himalayan are now replaced by shrouds (with 411 decals on them). The bike offers the same fuel tank. Seats are new in Scram 411, with a single-piece seat that looks more street-friendly & comfy as well.
A simple grab handle now replaces the top-box mount in the rear of the motorcycle. There is no change in the tail light. Scram 411 carries the same tail-light as Himalayan. Although the rear mudguard has a new look and looks shorter than the Himalayan. The side panels are new with little air vents on them. There is a bash plate at the bottom of the motorcycle.
In short, the company is ready to tame new grounds with the arrival of 2022. Royal Enfield Scram 411 with its well-executed package and street dominating specs, the only thing that remains to see is the response from the Royal Enfield fans in the Indian biking community.
