Royal Enfield launches it’s first spirited, multipurpose ADV Crossover that combines high altitude adventurer DNA with authentic scrambler vibes; SCRAM 411 ADV CROSSOVER priced at Rs. 2.03 Lakh. It’s essentially an upgraded Himalayan but with some interesting changes. Built on Royal Enfield’s proven LS-410 engine platform and the Harris Performance chassis, the Scram 411 combines spirited agility on urban streets, with competent rough-roading capabilities. Focused and purposeful changes in the riding geometry and ergonomics make it ideal for in-city riding, as well as unpredictable, challenging trails off the urban grid.
The Scram 411 is powered by a 411cc, fuel-injected 4-stroke SOHC air-cooled single-cylinder engine. The engine yields a maximum power of 24.3bhp at 6500rpm and max torque of 32Nm at 4000-4500 rpm which ensures smooth power delivery and strong bottom end torque that elevates the overall performance. The 5-speed gearbox on the motorcycle makes it easy to manage over long urban commutes with minimum gear shifts, and the confidence inspiring engine performance allows it to tackle bad road, and off-road sections easily. The 15 litres fuel tank ensures less fuel stop breaks when taking the road less travelled.
The change in the riding geometry is managed by the 19 inch 100/90 section dual purpose front tyres combined with 17 inch 120/90 section at the rear and are key elements for the nimble handling of the motorcycle. The wheel sizes are ideal to provide best handling and excellent rolling capability over speed bumps and potholes. The dual-purpose tyres ensure a confident grip over tarmac and on loose gravel, while bringing the perfect combination of on-road grip and rough-road tractability.
The braking is managed by 300mm disc at the front and 240mm at the rear with dual channel ABS to ensure safe emergency braking.
The Scram 411 also comes with a class-leading 200mm ground clearance with its long travel suspensions that promises a smooth and comfortable ride for the rider and pillion over long stretches. The telescopic front suspension with 41mm forks and 190mm travel, along with 180mm travel on the rear with monoshock linkages, ensure stable and confident riding over varying and rough road conditions.
Long hours in the saddle are managed by the new single seat that reflects the urban styling of the motorcycle & offers great comfort for both rider and pillion in city commute as well as long distance journeys. The accessible seat height of 795mm makes it easy to maneuver the motorcycle in stop and go traffic. The ride ergonomics on the Scram 411 feels very planted and confident. The handlebar position, and seat height make the ride experience dynamic, and engaging. It retains a commanding and comfortable riding position while making it easy to ride when seated or standing up.
The Scram 411 comes with a digital-analog instrument cluster that provides easy access to essential information on the digital screen. The off-set old-school, analog speedometer adds to the Scram’s style and makes for easy viewing in peripheral vision. The instrument cluster also has an auto meter, trip meter, time, fuel gauge with a low warning, and service reminder. The Royal Enfield Tripper Navigation pod is available as an MiY option on all variants of the Scram 411.
The Scram 411 is available in 7 colour options across all 3 variants. The Scram 411 in Graphite Yellow, Graphite Red and Graphite Blue, come with grey tanks and distinct tank badges and matching tyre rim tapes. The Skyline Blue and Blazing Black have distinct colour tanks with the identifiable Royal Enfield stripes and matching mud guards. The top-end variant, in two colourways – White Flame and Silver Spirit – flaunt dual tank colours, with unique and fun graphics.
With a price tag starting from 2,03,085 (ex-showroom Chennai) the Scram 411 is yet another addition to the Royal Enfield’s lineup but at its core, it’s an imitative of the Himalayan. So those looking for an affordable sober adventure bike apart from the Himalayan but at the same time, also feels like a Himalayan, the Scram 411 presents itself as an interesting alternative.
