Royal Enfield Scram 411 launch around the corner

The next big launch from Royal Enfield is the Scram 411 which is essentially a road-friendly version of Himlayan. Sources say that the first units have now arrived at dealer showrooms which hints the launch is around the corner,

The Scram 411 is essentially a stripped-back version of the Royal Enfield Himalayan, with the intention of offering a more playful, scrambler-style motorcycle as an alternative to the ADV-style Himalayan. What is immediately clear is that the Scram loses the Himalayan’s windscreen, and instead of the tubular metal structures around the fuel tank, it gets a small fuel tank shroud.

The other significant visual change is that the Scram 411 gets a small metal headlamp cowl.

A few more changes are in the form of a new single-piece seat and different side panels. The instrument console is also different, with a large off-set speedometer and a smaller tripper navigation display. The Scram also gets a different rear grab handle design and it’s missing the ADV-style beak fender seen on the Himalayan.

However, while Himalayan gets a 21-inch front wheel, Scram receives a 19-inch front unit due to road-friendly dynamics. Speaking of dynamics, the same suspension setup used in Himalayan comprising telescopic forks at front and a mono-shock at rear is likely to be offered but with different travel settings. The wheels are wrapped around by block pattern, dual-purpose tyres which should be good enough for some soft-roading.

Braking duties will be handled by 300 mm and 240 mm discs at front and rear respectively aided by a dual-channel ABS as standard. Powering Scram will be the same 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC engine that propels Himalayan. This motor kicks out 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm of peak torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. However, power and torque delivery is expected to be tuned slightly differently for road-biased mannerisms.
