Royal Enfield’s first launch of 2022 will be the Scram 411. It is a scrambler version of the Himalayan adventure tourer. It boasts a number of cosmetic changes when compared to the Himalayan. The Scram 411 has now been spotted at a dealership yard that too in production form. So, we can expect the new motorcycle to launch soon in the Indian market. It could happen in late February or in March.
There are two motorcycles that we can see in the pictures. The first paint scheme is black with red and yellow accents on it. On the side panel, there is the motorcycle’s badging. It seems like Royal Enfield has decided to call it “Himalayan Scram 411”. There is also a second decal on the smaller panel. The second motorcycle is finished in white with Red and Black accents. Both the paint schemes look quite good and modern.
Where the Himalayan is oriented for adventure touring and off-roading the Scram will be more of a daily usable motorcycle. Also, the Himalayan has a form over function look whereas the Scram looks more appealing with its unique paint schemes and traditional design.
Scram does not come with the instrument cluster that we have seen on the Himalayan. Instead, it comes with the dual-pod instrument cluster from the Meteor 350. There would also be Tripper Navigation that can show turn-by-turn navigation on a small circular screen which would work by connecting the MiY application of Royal Enfield.
The windshield in the front is now gone and is replaced with a cowl made up of metal. The beak-like mudguard has also been removed. This helps in cleaning up the front look of the motorcycle. The headlamp unit is still the same as the Himalayan. So, it gets a small LED bulb and a halogen setup. However, the chrome surround now has been blacked out.
The Scram will no longer come with a 21-inch front wheel. The rear 17-inch wheel will be carried forward from the Himalayan. It will still be running on spoked wheels which means no tubeless tyres. But they will dual-purpose tyres. The ground clearance of Scram 411 will be 200 mm.
The fuel tank looks the same as the Himalayan but it no longer gets the external frame on which you can mount jerry cans. Instead, the frame has been replaced with tank shrouds on which Royal Enfield is written. The split seat setup has been replaced with a single piece setup. Moreover, the Scram 411 will come with a sump guard as standard.
The braking setup will be carried over from the Himalayan. So, there will be a disc in the front and a disc at the rear. A Dual-channel Anti-lock braking system will be on offer as standard. It is still not known whether the ABS would be switchable or not.
We do not expect Royal Enfield to make any changes to the engine. It will come with the same 411 cc, single-cylinder, long-stroke engine that is air-oil cooled. It produces 24.3 bhp of max power and 32 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
