Royal Enfield’s much-awaited scrambler was spotted on the highway without camouflage
Scram 411, Royal Enfield’s much-awaited scrambler, was spotted on the highway once again, but this time without the camouflage. The upcoming motorcycle seems production-ready and the model being tested without the camouflage hints at an imminent launch..
The Indian automobile industry lacks scrambler motorcycles in the smaller CC segments. Therefore, a bulk of people are waiting for RE’s scrambler. Not to forget, Yezdi is also working on a scrambler and in a bid to topple each other, the two companies can create a new segment in the motorcycle market of India. Not to forget, the two upcoming motorcycles will take on the existing Benelli Leoncino.
The engine is from the Royal Enfield Himalayan
The upcoming scrambler from Royal Enfield is overall a new motorcycle. However, the heart of the motorcycle is old. After all, the scrambler will draw power from the Himalayan’s existing 411cc engine that puts out 24.31PS of power and a peak torque of 32Nm. The power figures are unlikely to be changed in the upcoming model, but the scrambler is likely to perform better because of its less weight.
What are the differences between the upcoming scrambler and the existing Himalayan?
After analysing the video, we noted down that the upcoming scrambler will hit the market without a windshield, rear luggage rack and tank brace. These are the elements that are found on the Himalayan ADV. The rear seat also looks different and more comfortable. Also, the spotted scramble seems to feature a 19-inch front wheel instead of the Himalayan’s 21-inch front wheel.
In terms of design and other hardware, it is more or less the Himalayan
Honestly, we dislike the upcoming scrambler because it is more or less like the Himalayan. From the exhaust system to the shape of the tank, everything is identical. Although, the upcoming model features extended tank shrouds in place of the tank brace. We also believe the instrument cluster, headlight setup, taillight unit and indicators will be carried forward from the Himalayan.
How much will it cost?
The official price tag will be revealed once the motorcycle is launched in the market. Given the motorcycle is not very different from the Himalayan, we believe the model will feature a price tag of around INR 1.75-1.90 lakh.
