Read all about the recent launch from the Royal Enfield, the Royal Enfield Scram 411. The Scram 411 is based on the off-road adventure bred Himalayan. In fact, It can also be called the scrambler version of the Himalayan. It is architectured on the same chassis and even uses the same engine as the Himalayan, to offer an urban-adventure experience, which is easy to ride within the city limits and can take on the beatings of a weekend off-road trail.
Speaking of how the Scrambler looks, it definitely resembles the Himalayan, owing to its similar body lines. The key difference that can be observed here between the two, is the missing metal frame that surrounded the tank and the rest of the chassis of the Himalayan to offer a rugged look. To offer an urban-friendly look, you do not get those metal frames & the windscreen which were the distinctive design of the Himalayan.
The Royal Enfield Scram 411 comes with an interesting choice of colour options too, the colours are bright enough to appeal to the younger audience. The colour options are Skyline Blue, White Flame, Silver Spirit, Graphite Blue, Graphite Red, Graphite Yellow & Blazing Black.
The main highlighting difference between the Himalayan and the Scram would be the reduced wheel size. The Scram 411 sits on a 19-inch front wheel instead of the off-road friendly 21-inch wheels. This subtle change makes a whole lot of difference not in just the visuals but also in the riding dynamics of the motorcycle. The Scram 411 exhibits a much calmer and levelled stance as compared to the tall and aggressive Himalayan.
With the reduced wheel size, the overall seat height of the bike has also been reduced by 5 mm, making it easier to ride in the cities, especially during traffic hours. The position of the handlebar has also been changed, the handlebar is now positioned 60 mm lower and 20 mm closer to the rider. This is to optimise the driving dynamics and make the urban rides comfortable, as the handlebar is now easier to reach.
Mechanically, the Scram 411 borrows the engine, brakes and suspension setup from the Himalayan. The engine used here is a single-cylinder, 4-Stroke, Air-Cooled, 411cc unit, which develops 24 HP & 32 Nm of torque. This engine is paired to a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox which uses a wet multi-plate clutch system, for efficient gearshifts. This engine is well-tuned to offer lots of low-end torque and a crisp mid-range of power. The high-speed cruising is not the strongest suit of this engine, as it is primarily designed to offer low-end torque for urban rideability and off-roading.
The front suspension is telescopic and they have a travel of 190 mm whereas, at the rear, there is a mono-shock setup with a linkage that has a travel of 180 mm.
The Scram 411 comes with a disc brake setup at both fronts and rear. At the front, you get a 300 mm disc with two-piston floating callipers whereas at the rear there’s the 240 mm disc and single-piston floating calliper. The braking setup also comes with dual-channel ABS, but one thing to highlight is that it cannot be turned off, like in the Himalayan, this might be disappointing for a few riders who are looking to have some fun with a loose rear end.
In terms of dimensions, the Scram has a wheelbase of 1411 mm, a ground clearance of 200 mm. The bike weighs 185 Kg and it comes with a fuel tank capacity of 15 litres.
The Scram 411 will rival the Yezdi Scrambler, and chances are if you are not much into bikes, you might not even be able to differentiate between the two when spotted on roads but the threat is pretty serious for the Scram 411 as the Scrambler offers a similar package to the buyers in the similar price range.
The Scram 411 has been launched at an introductory price of Rs 2.03 Lakhs (ex-showroom), which is lesser than the Yezdi Scrambler.
