As the numbers in the name go, the new Scram is a 411cc adventure bike revealed by Royal Enfield recently.

Dimensions of Royal Enfield Scram 411

This makes it the ideal engine option between the largely popular 350cc of the brand and the much powerful 500 cc engine. The engine offers a perfect balance of power and torque that fits the requirements of everyday riders and also those who prefer the off-road conditions. The 411 cc engine is paired with the regular 5-speed manual transmission. Royal Enfield Scram 411 comes with a fuel tank capacity of 15 litres. The full tank gives an ample a range of about 400km. In most cases, Scram will be used for in-city trips and short inter-city trips.

The RE Scram has a seat height of 795mm. This makes the bike more accessible than is big brother Himalayan. The difference is only about 5mm and not much. However, even that 5 mm makes much of a difference when you are 5’ 6”. Royal Enfield Scram 411 comes as 3 variants in 7 colours namely, Graphite Red/Yellow/Blue, Blazing Black, Skyline Blue, White Flame and Silver Spirit.

The Tripper navigation system of the brand has been in all models after 2019 and this bike is no exception. While the company doesn’t include the navigation system in all variants, the navigation pods will be available as an optional accessory.
Comparison with RE Himalayan
The Scram’s length is a clear 30mm less than Himalayan and the Himalayan stands tall at 1370mm. As said before Scram is more suitable for cities and it can go off road too. It is a better option for RE lovers who want a less rugged off-roader. Also different are the braking systems in each vehicle. While the Himalayan comes with a Switchable ABS, the Scram comes with a Dual Channel ABS. The LED headlights in the Himalayan are replaced by a halogen bulb while the tail-lights remain the same.
In short, the new Royal Enfield Scram 411 occupies a niche that is not covered by both the Classic & the Himalayan off-roaders.
