2022 Royal Enfield Scram 411

The Royal Enfield Scram 411 is a touring-oriented variant of the Himalayan off-roader. Much was known about the new Scram 411 before it was released, including the specs, as with many Royal Enfield releases in recent years.

Royal Enfield’s goal with this motorbike was to develop a more accessible and easier-to-ride version of the Himalayan, one that would be at home in the city while also being up for some off-roading. As a result, the design adjustments have resulted in a motorbike that is not only less serious in appearance, but also seems to be shorter than the Himalayan.

Royal Enfield has finally debuted the Scram 411 after years of anticipation. This scrambler-style motorcycle, designed in the same vein as the Himalayan ADV, is powered by the same engine and transmission setup as the ADV. At its rated capacity, the 411cc engine produces 24.3bhp and 32Nm of peak torque.

The Scram 411 is available in seven distinct colours from Royal Enfield. This bike is more accessible than the Himalayan, which shares many of its components, because of its lower seat height.

Most of the aesthetic alterations have occurred in the front, with the headlight being lowered and positioned farther in. The halogen bulb is also housed in a lovely cast aluminium bezel, which I think gives the bike a greater feeling of proportion.

The enormous ungainly fuel tank structure from the Himalayan has been replaced by two modest side panels on the sides. The seat is a novel single-piece design that is both attractive and comfy.

A smaller grab handle and a revised indicator/number plate setup have also been added to the back area. While it doesn’t feel as spectacular as the new RE 350s, it’s clearly better put together than the new Yezdi Scrambler in terms of overall quality and finish.

Another area where the Scram distinguishes itself from the Himalayan is in the colour scheme selection, which has seven unique options. Then there’s the new offset instrument console, of course. This display is based on the Meteor 350, however, it features a distinct colour scheme surrounding the speedometer. The Tripper navigation display on the side, like on the Meteor, is still an optional accessory.

While the display is attractive, there are a few drawbacks. For starters, unlike the Himalayan, you don’t get a rev counter. The major issue is that this new console is more mechanical than the previous one. There is no button to turn off the rear ABS, unlike the Himalayan. If you wish to do that, you’ll need to remove the ABS fuse, which will turn off the entire system, including the front lights.

Beyond the beauty of the 2022 Royal Enfield Scram 411

On the plus side, the Scram’s mechanical differences from its sister don’t end there. While the chassis is identical, including the headstock angle and rear subframe, the bike has a 19-inch front wheel instead of the Himalayan’s 21-inch one. The front suspension has a total travel of 190mm, which is 10mm less than the rear suspension. The rear shock has the same spring rate as the Himalayan and travels 180mm, but the damping has been modified somewhat.

The exact amount of more can only be determined when we ride it side by side with the Himalayan, although at slower speeds, the handlebar demands less effort. The handlebar is the same width as previously, but it’s a little lower and closer to the rider now.

The ground clearance has been reduced by 20mm to 200mm, and the seat height has been reduced by 5mm as a result of these alterations.

Despite this, the Scram 411 is nonetheless well-equipped as an off-road vehicle. In fact, it feels eerily identical to the Himalayan, and I seldom thought the Scram was any less competent than the Himalayan. The option to lock the rear tyre to help steer the bike in the dirt was the one feature I regularly missed.

Road manners of the 2022 Royal Enfield Scram 411 engine

The 411 engines haven’t altered much since the Himalayan. The power and torque statistics are the same, the gearing is the same, the sprocket sizes are the same, and it’s remarkably smooth, exactly like the BS6 Himalayan engine. 100 kph is a comfortable cruising pace, and while the indicated peak speed is around 130 kph, anything beyond 120 kph is a challenge.

The Scram performs admirably in terms of road comfort. The suspension is a bit stiffer than the Himalayan, and it could even be somewhat firmer, but we’d have to ride them back to back to be sure. While this bike isn’t as comfortable as the XPulse 200 4V, it’s also not as stable as the new Yezdi Scrambler.

Because the brakes haven’t been changed, it’s a similar tale — the front end has a dull feel to it, and rapid stops need the use of both hands. It would have been good if RE could have given this bike a little more front-end bite to match its urban aims.

The Scram 411 is built around a half-duplex split cradle frame with a 41mm telescopic fork with 190mm travel (ten millimetres less than the Himalayan) and a rear connected mono-shock with 180mm wheel travel.  

The front wheel of the bike is a smaller 19-inch spoke wheel with a meatier 100-section block pattern tyre, while the rear wheel is the same 17-inch wheel with 120-section rubber as the Himalayan’s rear wheel. With the optional centre stand, the motorcycle weighs 185kg dry, which is 5kg less than the Himalayan’s total weight.

The Royal Enfield Scram is powered by the same single-cylinder engine that powers the 411cc Royal Enfield Himalayan. When coupled with the same 5-speed gearbox, it produces the same power and torque ratings as the previous model: 24.3PS at 6500rpm and 32Nm at 4250rpm.
