Here’s why we’re excited about the new Royal Enfield Scram 411

Would you rock the new street-focused retro roadster based on the Himalayan?

Here’s why we’re excited about the new Royal Enfield Scram 411

Earlier in March, Royal Enfield pulled the covers off one of its most highly anticipated models. Based on the highly popular Himalayan adventure bike, the new Scram 411 takes all of that bike’s lovable traits, and adapts them into a street-focused package that’s all about style and enjoyment. We’ve spent quite a bit of time with the Himalayan, and we can certainly say that that bike had many strong points. 

Now, with the launch of the Scram 411, Royal Enfield is sure to capture the attention of a wider audience thanks to the bike’s more approachable platform. After all, not everyone needs an off-road capable adventure bike that’s as rugged as a tractor. Here are a few things we’re really excited about when it comes to the Royal Enfield Scram 411. 

Head-turning styling

Royal Enfield has always been all about good-looking motorcycles. Evidently, the Scram 411 is no different. When it comes to styling, Royal Enfield has taken what was wonderfully rugged about the Himalayan, and streamlined it a little bit for a more street-focused aesthetic. As such, the Scram 411 still looks rugged, although more at home in the urban environment. We find a muscular fuel tank, a tall stance, burly wire-spoke wheels, and of course, a classic-style round headlight—all hallmark features of a stylish and chic neo-retro roadster. 

Versatile performance

As mentioned earlier, we’ve spent a lot of time aboard the Royal Enfield Himalayan, and we can certainly say that there’s a lot to love about the bike’s character. No, it isn’t the fastest bike out there, with just 25 horsepower on tap, but it certainly carries with it a reassuring sense of ruggedness, making you feel that it won’t break down on you even on the most rugged and remote terrain. If this bulletproof reliability is carried over to the Scram, then that pretty much cements it as a solid commuter and long-distance tourer. Furthermore, the fact that it doesn’t pump out wads of power means that it’s approachable to all sorts of riders with varying degrees of riding experience. 

Approachable price tag

While Royal Enfield has yet to officially release the Scram 411 here in the Philippines, you can almost be certain that it’ll be fetching a rather affordable price tag. When it comes to stylish, value-for-money big bikes, it’s really hard to beat Royal Enfield. As for pricing, we’re guessing that the Scram 411 should retail for well below P400,000, maybe even closer to the P300,000 mark. This could put it squarely within the ballpark of the likes of the Husqvarna Vitpilen and Svartpilen 401, making it a solid alternative for those looking for a more subdued and relaxed ride.
