Royal Enfield has officially unveiled the Scram 411, which the firm describes as an ADV crossover based on the Himalayan mechanicals. They say the Scram 411 is a street scrambler with the heart of an adventure bike.
It utilises the 18kW/32Nm single overhead cam, single cylinder 411cc engine of the Himalayan mated to a five-speed transmission, all housed in the Harris Performance chassis. Dry weight is a claimed 185kg. It runs a 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear.
Special features include wire spoked wheels, dual purpose tyres, long travel suspension, a scrambler seat set at 795mm, an Urban badge and offset speedo.
Changes in the riding geometry and ergonomics make it better for urban riding but it is still capable of taking to the trails on the weekend. Royal Enfield calls it a multitasker.
Siddhartha Lal, the head of Royal Enfield said “We wanted to build a motorcycle that could effortlessly navigate the entire gamut, and be the perfect ally for the young, modern day rider. The Scram 411 is always ready to tackle whatever surprise is in store.”
A company spokesperson said that the versatility of the Himalayan inspired the team to reimagine the motorcycle in a modern urban context. The Scram 411 they believe will be the ideal crossover for young city-dwellers, who prefer a motorcycle that is fun and engaging to ride around the city yet also has a rugged appeal for adventure.
The Scram 411 is expected to go on sale in New Zealand by the middle of 2022, with pricing determined closer to its arrival. Seven different colours will be available.
