- Equipped with alloy wheels
- Could get tubeless tyres with new wheels
- Seems to carry forward the same features, engine setup and design
A new Scram 411 test mule has been photographed just a while after the Bobber 350 was spotted. While it may appear largely unchanged when compared to the current Scram, the test bike has been equipped with alloy wheels. This means the Scram 411 could finally get tubeless tyres, thus offering temporary ease of riding in case of a puncture.
With the use of alloys, the Scram 411’s overall road usability will also improve as owners can take it for longer rides and not worry about being stranded in case of a flat tyre. We expect Royal Enfield to offer these alloys as an accessory in the Scram 411’s catalogue. But it won’t be a surprise if the brand decides to bring a separate variant as well since it has done the same with the current generation Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. If so, the alloy wheel variant would come at a slight premium over the spoke wheel model.
Apart from that, the test bike seems to be similar to the current model. The design, hardware and engine are expected to be carried over. As of now, the Royal Enfield Scram 411 gets a round headlight with a halogen bulb. It features circular mirrors, a split seat and a wide handlebar. Powering the Scram is a 411cc motor that makes 24.3bhp and 32Nm. The engine is linked to a five-speed gearbox. Its features list is quite basic and only comprises a twin-pod instrument console. One of them houses the speedometer, trip meter, fuel level readout, and odometer and the second unit is for the Tripper Navigation.
The suspension comprises conventional telescopic front forks and a monoshock while the braking hardware includes a front and rear disc with ABS. Royal Enfield offers the Scram in seven different colours: Graphite Blue, Graphite Red, Graphite Yellow, Blazing Red, Skyline Blue, White Flame, and Silver Spirit.
Currently, Royal Enfield has priced the Scram 411 at Rs. 2.06 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It not only rivals the Yezdi Scrambler and the Yezdi Adventure but is also an affordable alternative to the current Royal Enfield Himalayan.
