One of the most anticipated releases from Royal Enfield is almost here. All we have to do is wait for March 15, 2022, and the Himalayan Scram will finally get a global reveal. All eyes are on Royal Enfield for this unveiling since it trademarked the name back in 2021.
Before we head into the week of the launch, however, here are a few key details that you can come to expect from Royal Enfield’s new Himalayan 411-based scrambler for 2022.
As we all know, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 411 is an every-man adventure-tourer with decent dual sport capabilities. Whether on-road or off the beaten path, the Himalayan can make quick work of trails while tractoring through just about anything, and it also does a decent job of traversing roads and highways at an easy-going pace. While many have come to love the Himalayan’s character as an adventurer, the scram wishes to bring the model’s personality into a more urbanized scrambler variant. More dual sport and urban crawler, the Himalayan Scram 411 will take on a more street-oriented setup.
Instead of the large 21-inch wheel up front that can go through just about anything, a 19-inch rim will be fitted on the scram. This change could result in a ground clearance of about 200 mm, as some sources claim.
For power, the scram will still come with the tried-and-tested 411cc single-overhead-cam thumper of a motor from Royal Enfield. For the new model, it’s likely that the model will be fuel injected instead of carbureted, and will produce about 24 hp.
Style-wise, expect a more stripped-down Himalayan with a single round headlight, a solo seat, and styling changes to the side panels for a more urban feel. The adventurous bits from the Himalayan 411 like the windshield will be eschewed in favor of a more lightweight and sleeker look for the scram.
As for its technology, sources indicate that Royal Enfield’s tripper navigation pod will be on board for this model which allows riders the ability to see turn-by-turn navigation information.
Stay tuned for the unveiling of the Himalayan Scram 411 this March 15, 2022. The event will be aired on Royal Enfield’s website, so keep an eye out on the fifteenth.
