The more road-focused version of the Indian factory’s much-loved Himalayan has been caught out during final road tests ahead of its expected launch early this year. The lads and lasses over at Royal Enfield are nothing if not busy. Hot on the heels of its new Classic 350 and Meteor 350, alongside rumours of the Meteor 650 (and the everevasive Himalayan 650), the Indian factory looks set to release its latest motorcycle that’s been built from the bones of a Himalayan – the interestingly-named Scram 411.
We’ve been talking about the bike for some time now. We’ve seen the clay model, we’ve seen previous test
bikes going about their business, and now we’ve got a glimpse of what looks to be a fully-formed machine
undergoing final road tests in India. Spy shot images from our pals at Motoroids show a pre-production
Scram 411 – and at first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s another slightly tweaked version of the current Himalayan. And in essence, it is.
It certainly appears to be powered by the same 411cc single as the Himalayan (which means we can expect power of around 24bhp and torque of around 32Nm). But when you look a little closer there’re a few
key differences which help the Scram to stand out. Most notably, the Scram gets a smaller 18-inch front wheel (in contrast to the Himalayan’s 21-inch number), and at this stage it appears that it’ll still come with spoked rims, though there is still a chance it’ll get some road-focused cast alloy ones when it goes into production.

The other clear difference to the Himalayan is its front end. There’s a different headlight shroud which sits
much lower down, and there’s no beak-style mudguard just underneath it (instead there’s one which sits much tighter to the front wheel). There’s also a rear grab rail rather than a luggage rack, and there’re no bars around the tank either.
Thankfully, rumours suggest we won’t have to wait too much longer for the full lowdown on the Scram 411, with the big reveal expected early in 2022. For now we’ll just have to sit tight and play the waiting game.
