Royal Enfield Scram name registered: Interceptor based Scrambler coming?

Royal Enfield, the oldest manufacturer of motorcycles in the world started offering new body styles quite recently. The Himalayan, which was the first adventure motorcycle from the brand was a refreshing change from the regular roadsters. Also, the launch of the bikes like the Continental GT and the Interceptor has added a variety to the Royal Enfield line-up. The manufacturer is now planning to enter more new segments in the market. It has now registered the name – Scram, which can become the name of its upcoming Scrambler.

Royal Enfield is testing multiple motorcycles on public roads under heavy camouflage. The manufacturer is also testing a cruiser, which is likely to get the name – Shotgun in the future. However, what about the new name – Scram? Which motorcycle will get this newly registered name?

Until now, no scrambler motorcycle from Royal Enfield has been spotted on the public roads. But that does not mean that Royal Enfield is not planning to launch one. Since the information available on the motorcycle is quite limited, we can speculate with the available information. The upcoming Scram will be based on Royal Enfield’s new platform that underpins the Interceptor and Continental GT650.

The final product can be very similar to the Triumph Street Scrambler, which also utilises the same chassis of the standard version of the motorcycle. The Royal Enfield Scram can get spoked wire rims but there is likely to be an alloy wheel version too, which will offer tubeless tyres.

We may get to see quite a few changes to give it a scrambler-styling including a high-mounted exhaust, high mounted fenders, serrated footpegs and more such bits. While the design will ensure that it looks like a scrambler, it will be a dual-purpose machine.

Upcoming Royal Enfield Motorcycles

Royal Enfield is working on a slew of all-new motorcycles for the Indian market. The manufacturer is likely to launch new products powered by its newly developed 650cc parallel-twin engine. They have already registered the name Shotgun in the Indian market. However, no one can say for sure about the name of the cruiser 650. Royal Enfield had also registered the names Sherpa, Roadster, and Hunter. So it can be any of these names.

The brand is also working on a roadster that will be powered by a 350cc single-cylinder engine. It will take on the like of Honda CB350 RS in the Indian market. Royal Enfield announced that it will launch a new motorcycle every quarter and the brand had announced that it will launch at least 28 motorcycles in the next seven years.

Royal Enfield’s next launch is likely to be the all-new Classic 350 that will be based on the same chassis that underpins the all-new Meteor in the Indian market.
