Royal Enfield has released final details and pricing for its urban assault weapon, the Scram 411, which arrives soon. The firm describes it as an ADV crossover, given as it is based heavily on the existing Himalayan adventure bike. The idea is to morph the mountain goat to make it more street capable, more agile, more multi-purpose, like a street scrambler and hence the name.
Utilising the same LS-410 engine and Harris Performance chassis that underpin Himalayan, the Scram 411 has a 19-inch wheel instead of a 21, but retains rough-road capability, thanks to its 200mm of ground clearance, and long travel suspension (180-190mm). While Scram 411 is oriented to younger urban dwellers with a plethora of multicolour finishes, it retains the off-road DNA and look, with weekend adventure part of the DNA. Think playful on urban roads but still capable of taking to the dirt.
Anuj Dua, Business Head for Asia Pacific markets, said, “We were determined to create a motorcycle that would be distinct in design and purpose, and bring the best of rough road capability to urban riding.”
The adventure riding segment continues to be one of the fastest growing segments in the Asia-Pacific region. Another simple, capable, ‘go-anywhere’ motorcycle that complements the Himalayan should be popular, the Scram 411 with altered ergonomics suited more towards urban use.
It utilises the understressed 411cc, fuel-injected, four-stroke, single cam, air-cooled single that’s found in the Himalayan and offers up 24hp at 6500rpm and 32Nm of torque from 4000-4500rpm. The 41mm forks have 190mm of travel, while the monoshock offers 180mm, for stable and confident riding over varying surfaces. Dual-purpose tyres like those on a dirt tracker ensure a confident grip on both tarmac and loose gravel.
The seat on the new Scram 411, set at 735mm, has been redesigned for greater comfort during long saddle times, and is now a single pew, more in keeping with the urban styling of the motorcycle. The handlebar position and seat height are designed to make the ride experience dynamic and engaging, both when seated and standing up.
Its instrument cluster is similar to that of the Himalayan with tripmeter, time, fuel gauge with a low warning, and service reminder. The Tripper pod, allowing turn by turn navigation, is available as an option on all variants of the Scram 411.
The new addition to the RE line-up is available in seven different colour combinations across three variants. The top-end variant comes in two colourways – White Flame and Silver Spirit – with dual tank colours and unique graphics.
The Scram 411 is offered with 19 accessories that complement the lifestyle and purpose, including crash bars, and panniers. There is also dedicated riding gear for Scram 411.
The bike dots down midyear and the three different levels will be available with pricing that kicks off from $NZ8290, the top variant costing $8490, and the intermediate model $8390.
