Royal Enfield's new Himalayan based scrambler, the Scram 411 is almost here, with pricing announced ahead of the bike's arrival.
The Scram 411 is expected to arrive in New Zealand and Australia in late June, with pricing set to start from $8290 for the base Graphite colour options. The price then moves to $8390 for the mid-range colour options and tops out $8490 for the two premium colours.
The bike still uses the same LS-410 engine, frame, suspension and fuel tank from the Himalayan, but Royal Enfield has tweaked the design to give the Scram 411 a more urban feel.
The navigation tower and windscreen have been replaced in favour of a metal headlight cowel, with a Tripper navigation pod now sitting alongside a single all-in-one analogue/digital main guage.
Power remains the same as the Himalayan, while the biggest change to the chassis is the switch to a 19-inch front wheel. Royal Enfield says the move to the smaller front wheel is in line with the Scram 411's more urban focus yet doesn't give away too much capability when the road gets rough.
To Himalayan riders the rider triangle is familiar, with the handlebars for the Scram set slightly lower than the Himalayan. The seat, however has been specially tailored for the Scram and now consists of a single bench seat with ribbed stitching. Royal Enfield claims to have spent a lot of time perfecting the comfort of the new seat to allow plenty of time in the saddle for riders.
