Royal Enfield has revealed its Scram 411, a new model based on the popular Himalayan adventure bike distinguished by more road-friendly ergonomics and dimensions.
The 2022 Royal Enfield Scram 411 will join the recently updated Himalayan in Australian showrooms around June of this year, with pricing for the local market yet to be locked in. For reference, the entry-grade Himalayan is sold from $8190 rideaway.
Critically, the Scram 411 swaps the Himalayan’s 21-inch front wheel for a 19-inch hoop, and revised suspension lowers ground clearance, seat height and suspension travel compared to the more dirt-focussed adventure bike.
Suspension travel is rated at 190mm and 180mm, front-to-rear, translating to a 10mm drop at both ends, while ground clearance is rated at 200mm (-20mm) and seat height 795mm (-5mm).
The Scram 411 retains a familiar 18kW/32Nm 411cc single-cylinder engine that is matched with a conventional five-speed gearbox.
Unique to the Royal Enfield Scram 411 is new tuck-and-roll seat, a new headlight cowl, revised front and rear guards with a new pillion grab handle, and lower handlebars better suited to road riding.
The bike also debuts new graphics and colours, with seven colourways expected to be offered at launch: White Flame, Silver Spirit, Blazing Black, Skyline Blue, Graphite Red, Graphite Blue and Graphite Yellow.
Official images published this week appear to show a Tripper turn-by-turn navigation dial fitted, however, it is unclear if this feature will be included as standard or as an option. INFO MOTO understands that the inclusion of the Tripper dial on its 2022 models has been affected by the global computer chip shortage.
Rumours have been circulating for some time that Royal Enfield is developing a larger-capacity Himalayan-type adventure bike, that may be powered by the brand’s 650cc parallel-twin engine.
Sources tell INFO MOTO that the brand is pushing into new categories, and so more new models are anticipated before year’s end.
