Royal Enfield Scram 411 launched, prices start from Rs 2.03 lakh
The Scram 411 has to be one of Royal Enfield’s most awaited products, as it is based on the Himalayan but it’s aimed to offer a bit more ease in terms of daily commutes and rideability. The Royal Enfield Scram 411 has been launched at a starting price tag of Rs 2.03 lakh, and while there are products like the Honda CB350RS and the Husqvarna twins (which, let’s be honest, are more street-focused), the Scram 411 seems to have the recently-launched Yezdi Scrambler in its sights.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 Design
To a lot of buyers, the Royal Enfield Scram 411 may come across as a Himalayan in different clothes, which is apparent by the presence of the aluminium cowl surrounding the headlamp, along with a new panel on either sides featuring a variety of designs, depending on what variant you buy. Royal Enfield has also done away with the fuel tank rails and has given the Scram 411 a range of single-tone and tri-tone paint schemes to further differentiate it from big brother Himalayan.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 Powertrain and Chassis
As it is based on the Himalayan, the Royal Enfield Scram 411 shares the same 411cc air-cooled powertrain that puts out 24bhp at 6500rpm and 32Nm of torque at 4000-4500rpm. Underpinned by the same split cradle frame, the Scram 411 makes use of 41mm forks up front and a linkage-type monoshock at the rear, but with slightly lesser wheel travel given that the Scram 411 also features a smaller 19-inch wheel at the front. The ground clearance is lesser by just 20mm, as the Scram 411 gets 200mm of ground clearance. The Scram 411 also uses 300mm discs with dual-piston floating calipers at the front, and a 240mm disc with a single-piston caliper at the rear. How does all this translate to the real world?

Royal Enfield Scram 411 Features and Equipment
The Royal Enfield Scram comes with a semi-digital instrument cluster similar to the one seen on the Meteor 350. However, it doesn’t come with the tripper navigation pod as standard, and you’ll have to opt for it as an accessory under Royal Enfield’s Make It Yours catalogue. You do get non-switchable ABS as standard, and our correspondent Karan has an interesting take on it, which you can find out by clicking here.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 Prices and Rivals
The Royal Enfield Scram 411 comes with three different variants, with prices starting from Rs 2.03 lakh to Rs 2.08 lakh, which makes it more affordable than the Himalayan by Rs 50,000. Its nearest competitor, the Yezdi Scrambler, can be had from Rs 2.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
