If you look closely there are a lot of Himalayan’s elements in the Scram 411’s design. The front windshield has been replaced with a metal cowl. So, there is no longer wind protection while travelling on highways. However, Scram 411 will be mostly used in cities and for mild-off roading. So, it makes sense why Royal Enfield decided to remove the windshield.
The secondary beak-like mudguard has also been removed in favour of a regular mudguard. Then there are the new tank shrouds that have taken the place of the exoskeleton that we have seen on the Himalayan.
The side panels are different from the Himalayan, they have two horizontal slats on them. There is also badging Himalayan. The turn indicators, circular headlamp and the rear tail lamp are also carried forward from the Himalayan but they have been positioned slightly differently.
Royal Enfield has removed the rear tail rack, replaced the split seats with a single-piece seat and there are also fork gaiters on offer. All these design changes have given a cleaner and less busy look to the Scram 411 when compared to the Himalayan. Scram 411 will also come with a factory-fitted sump guard to protect the engine from damage while off-roading. Replacing a sump guard is way less expensive than repairing the whole engine.
Engine and gearbox
The engine is the same long-stroke unit as the Himalayan. So, it is a 411 cc, air-oil cooled engine that produces 24.3 bhp of max power and 32 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Braking, suspension & wheels
Braking duties will be done via disc in the front and at the rear. Dual-channel ABS will be offered as standard. Up-front there are telescopic front forks with 190 mm of travel and at the rear, there is a mono-shock with 180 mm of travel.
The front-wheel measures 19-inches unlike the Himalayan which has a wheel size of 21-inches. The rear wheel has been carried forward as it is so it measures 17-inches. It gets spoked wheels with tube-type dual-purpose tyres. Because of the smaller front wheel, the ground clearance has gone down from 220 mm to 200 mm but it is still enough for mild-off roading and for tackling speed breakers. The seat height is 795 mm which is very accessible. The weight of the motorcycle has also gone down. It now has a kerb weight of 185 kgs and. The fuel tank measures 15 litres.
