2022 Royal Enfield Scram 411 First Look Preview

Royal Enfield dresses down the Himalayan with its 2022 Scram 411.

Perky, alert and ready to jump a curb or two: the new Royal Enfield Scram 411.Royal Enfield

Adventure crossover? Adventure motorcycle? Curb-hopper? Whatever you want to call it, the Royal Enfield Scram 411 looks like a fun variant of the much-liked Himalayan. Using a Hodaka-esque name, the Scram 411 fills the growing small-displacement adventure/scrambler streetbike segment. Ducati seems to have shipped its Sixty2 out of the American market, so there’s more room than before.

Already available in India, it’s not to be confused with an entry-level enduro that could help you tackle dirt piles, abandoned lots, or random countryside. The Scram 411 will still help you fight urban obstacles in creative, semi-legal ways. Of course, follow all local traffic laws, etc.

You already know Royal Enfield’s air-cooled fuel-injected four-stroke SOHC 411cc single-cylinder engine. The headline here is long-travel suspension and (supposedly) class-leading 7.8-inch ground clearance. To this end, suspension consists of a 41mm fork offering 7.4 inches of travel with 7.0 inches in the rear. A 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear helps it all roll. At some point, front and rear discs with dual-channel ABS bring it all to a safe halt. These Himalayan-esque  specs should make for a fun urban commuter and/or scrambler.

According to provided press materials, “The single seat that reflects the urban styling of the motorcycle offers great comfort for both rider and passenger.” Right. So to be accurate, it’s not a single seat at all. Good thing, as willing passengers should be plentiful. Seat height is an accessible 31.2 inches, so stop-and-go traffic should be a breeze.

A single analog gauge tops it all off. Very classy, Royal Enfield. An MSRP and color options will be announced in the coming months, as will its US availability, slated for spring or late summer of this year. Until then, enjoy the press photos.

Drawing on the Himalayan’s strengths, the Scram 411 is an urban scrambler.Royal Enfield
