As early as May of last year, news about a new model based on the Himalayan has reached our shores. And, through photos that were leaked on the internet a few months later, it was revealed that Royal Enfield is developing a scrambler version of the 411cc Himalayan.
Now, Royal Enfield has officially launched the Scram 411 to add to its Himalayan stable.
Based on the video and images supplied by Royal Enfield, the new Scram 411’s overall styling doesn’t go very far from the “normal” Himalayan adventure bike. The traditional windscreen that houses the instrument panel of the Himalayan was traded for a metal cowling that would now house the headlight – giving a striking feature similar to an old school enduro bike.
The digital-analog panel seems to be new, and the saddle is now a full single continuous scrambler-type seat. The 21-inch front wheel of the Himalayan was also traded for a smaller, 19-inch wire wheel, while the rear still enjoys a 17-inch wire wheel.
Two little shrouds were also added to both sides of the tank, shouting the Royal Enfield and Scram 411 logos.
The Scram 411 comes in 7 color liveries: White Flame, Silver Spirit, Blazing Black, Skyline Blue, Graphite Red, Graphite Blue, and Graphite Yellow. Everything else, like the suspension, engine, brakes, etc. is the same as with the current Himalayan model.
SRP and availability
For now, Royal Enfield hasn’t disclosed if the Scram 411 will be available for the international market including ours, but the new model will retail in India starting at USD 2,657 or roughly PHP 138,900 (taxes and duties not included).
Judging from how the new bike looks, it would be very easy for a current Himalayan owner to “upgrade” his bike into a Scram 411. Just a few tweaks and a nice paint job, he or she doesn’t need to wait for the real Scram 411 to arrive here in the country.
