In May 2021, we reported that Royal Enfield had filed patents for a new moniker, ‘Scram’ in India. Royal Enfield registered the name under the Nice Class 12, which led us to believe that a new Royal Enfield motorcycle is coming. Yesterday we also reported a couple of images that emerged in India showing a new version of the Royal Enfield Himalayan with deleted fairing, smaller rims and tweaks on the cosmetic front.
A media report suggests that the brand will introduce a new Himalayan-based scrambler style motorcycle in India. Also, the name of this motorcycle is likely to be Scram 411. Scram is short for scrambler, and 411 denotes the 411cc engine displacement. Currently, Royal Enfield is road-testing the bike in India, but design renderings of the Scram 411 have already leaked on the internet, which coincides with the spy images.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 – Design Changes Compared to Himalayan
The new Scram 411 features the same rounded headlamp, but the size appears smaller than the Himalayan. The brand could be deleting the windscreen and the side racks but added a headlamp shroud to keep the design clean and hide the internals. Royal Enfield is also deleting the high-mounted flying fender replacing it with a standard front fender.
The Scram 411 will carry forward the fuel tank from the Himalayan, but the tank will receive an additional applique on the side. The side panels on the Scram 411 are also likely to get some design tweaks. Ergonomically, the Scram 411 is likely to remain similar to the Himalayan, as the handlebar, footpegs, and rider geometry is likely to carry forward. But the seat on the Scram 411 is likely to be a single-piece unit, unlike the split seat on the Himalayan.
The taillight seen in the spy images before appear similar to the Himalayan, but the design rendering shows a different pillion grabrail and rear fender. The brand is likely to equip the Scram 411 with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels. The Himalayan gets 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels. The brand is likely to continue with the dual-sport tyre offering on the Scram 411.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 – Technical Specification
Royal Enfield is not likely to make any changes in the mechanical department. The Scram 411 is likely to use the same BS6 compliant 411cc single-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine. The SOHC chain-driven valvetrain engine produces 24.6 Hp of power and 32 Nm of torque. The 5-speed gearbox is also likely to remain the same. Other mechanical hardware is also likely to carry forward from the Himalayan.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 – Launch & Price
Royal Enfield is currently concentrating its efforts on introducing the new generation Royal Enfield Classic 350. The Scram 411 is likely to follow the Classic 350 and make its debut around the festive season of 2021. The brand is likely to position the Scram 411 below the Himalayan. Therefore, it is likely to be around INR 10,000 to INR 15,000, affordable than the Himalayan. The Royal Enfield Himalayan comes with a price tag of INR 1.91 lakh ex-showroom. Expect the Scram 411 to come with a sticker price of around INR 1.75 lakh to INR 1.80 lakh ex-showroom.
