  • It is a more accessible version of the RE Himalayan
  • It gets the same engine as the Himalayan

The Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 was launched a year ago and yes, in terms of sheer looks, I love the way it looks. The Scram 411 is a scrambler-ised version of the Himalayan if you will. And apart from the lovely colour options that it gets, the Scram also gets a thicker, 19-inch wire-spoked alloy wheel up front along with a 17-inch unit at the rear. In terms of engine specifications, the motorcycle uses the same 411 cc long-stroke engine as the Himalayan, with the same power output of 24.3 bhp coming in at 6,500 rpm and peak torque output of an impressive 32 Nm coming in at a lowly 4,250 rpm.

The highlight of the engine here is the robust bottom end, with oodles of torque and an equally strong mid-range that make urban riding easier than you would think. The gearbox does well to put all the shove at the rear wheel although the hard clutch gives your left palm and arm a good workout should you be stuck in rush hour, bumper-to-bumper traffic. The Scram 411 shines, actually thrives in the urban chaos and does well to filter through traffic, tug along on mild trails and can actually go touring. But, that is an experience to be shared on another day! 

The other highlight is the tiny round Tripper unit that comes fitted with the motorcycle, which is otherwise an optional accessory, which costs around Rs. 5,000. Plus, I really like the ‘Silver Spirit’ colour on our long term motorcycle, that has grey overtones, with a dash of turquoise all around. I think it is turquoise!

For now, the Scram 411 from Royal Enfield makes its way to the car&bike garage and thankfully, I was able to get my grubby paws on the key to the motorcycle before anyone else. But for how long am I able to keep the key to myself, is a different question altogether! Plus, the fact that most members of the C&B team in Delhi prefer two wheels to four, something on the lines of two wheels moving the soul, will make my job even tougher to hang on to the key! So might as well make good use of the Royal Enfield Scram 411 and get some miles on it!
