Royal Enfield has unveiled a new product and it is called the Scram 411. Essentially, it is a stripped-down version of the Himalayan and Royal Enfield is calling it its first ADV crossover.
Being a scrambler, the Royal Enfield Scram 411 retains the dual-purpose tyres but the wheel setup has been changed. So, instead of a 21-in front, we’ve got a 19-inch wheel and at the back, there’s a 17-in wheel. This, along with slightly revised ergonomics, has made the Scram 411 a bit more agile than the Himalayan which should help it score good points in city conditions.
The Royal Enfield Scram 411 features a new, single-piece seat that not only looks good but we feel that it would provide good comfort, too. The motorcycle also weighs less than the Himalayan thanks to the omission of the front and rear rack.
Royal Enfield has slapped on the instrument cluster of its Meteor 350 into the new Scram 411. It’s a good looking setup, however, it misses out on a rev counter. Also, the Tripper Navigation module is said to be an optional extra.
Royal Enfield has also tweaked the suspension setup on the Scram 411 to make it more suitable to the motorcycle’s scrambler nature and character. So, it can do a bit of low to medium off-roading but if you want to do anything serious, Himalayan would be a better option. But the one thing that’s quite surprising is that there is no option to switch off the ABS even on the rear wheel. So, scrambling around trails and off-road terrains would be a little less fun, we guess.
As far as the engine is concerned, it has been borrowed from the Himalayan without any changes – a 411cc, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, SOHC, air-cooled single-cylinder engine that makes a maximum power of 24.3bhp at 6500rpm and max torque of 32Nm at 4000-4500 rpm. Transmission is also the same – 5-speed gearbox.
