The coming few months are going to be happening for all the Royal Enfield fanboys out there. The bikemaker is currently plotting an assault on its adversaries by launching numerous new products. The first major launch from RE this year is expected to be the Scram 411 which has already been caught by digital eyes on multiple occasions. If you have been living under the proverbial rock and don’t know what a Scram 411 is, it is basically a less-hardcore, road-biased variant of the Himalayan.
We won’t have to wait for that much for the official unveiling of the Scram 411 since the upcoming offering from RE has already started reaching dealerships, as can be seen in the spy pictures embedded below.
Scramblers are the flavour of the day and RE is soon going to join the bandwagon with the Scram 411. A few days after its official brochure got leaked on the internet, these new spy pictures reveal what we can expect from its production-spec variant. The Scram 411 might retain the same silhouette as its more rugged cousin – the Himalayan but there are a few key differences that set these motorcycles apart. Should we grab our inspection lenses and tread ahead?
Gone are the tall windscreen and Himalayan’s signature exoskeleton as they have made way for a new headlamp housing and new tank shrouds. These spy pictures also confirm that RE is indeed going to baptize the new offering as ‘Scram 411’. The single-piece seat also replaces the split seats found on the Himalayan. These changes are merely amuse-bouche as the major difference lies in the size of the front wheel. While the Himalayan gets a 21-inch front wheel to take nasty trails under its stride, the Scram 411 will arrive with a smaller, 19-inch front wheel. It is expected to be less off-road capable than the Himalayan but we are assuming that the smaller front wheel will make the Scram 411 an able handler on blacktop.
Apart from these changes, RE is not going to boil down the original recipe even more. The Scram 411 will most likely borrow its powertrain from the Himalayan that puts down 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm of peak torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
