Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411Scram 411 will appeal to users looking for a road-biased machine that can tackle city streets, highways and some mild off-roadsIn its current form, Royal Enfield Himalayan is not the type of bike that suffices for normal commuting needs. To improve its usability without losing its core Adv character, Royal Enfield is working on a toned-down version of Himalayan. The new 400cc bike has been spotted multiple times on road tests, revealing its features and capabilities.This new Himalayan variant will be called Scram 411. This has now been confirmed via leaked brochure scans, credit to youtube channel Bullet Guru. Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 official accessories like t-shirts, keychains have also arrived at dealership.Royal Enfield Scram 411 featuresScram 411 has the same basic silhouette as that of Himalayan. It continues using the retro theme, as evident in round headlamp and rear-view mirrors. Other things like fork gaiters, design of fuel tank, wide handlebar, chassis, split seats and upswept exhaust are quite the same as Himalayan.For its road-biased transformation, a number of parts have been removed. For example, Scram 411 does not have the dedicated racks at front and rear. It gets compact-sized tank shrouds at front and single piece grab rail at rear.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 vs HimalayanAnother key change is the use of a smaller 19-inch front wheel, as compared to 21-inch unit currently used with Himalayan. The bike is still capable of some off-roading, as it continues using wire-spoked wheels shod with dual-purpose tyres.At the front, Scram 411 misses out on windscreen and raised front fender. Shape of turn indicators is expected to be different, as compared to that of Himalayan. There could be some other minor variations to the overall styling of the bike. For a unique identity, some new colour options can be introduced for Scram 411.As reduced pricing could be one of the objectives, Scram 411 could get an updated instrument console without Tripper navigation system. As may be recalled, Tripper was added to Himalayan earlier this year in February. For users who need it, Tripper may be offered as an accessory with Scram 411.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 FeaturesRoyal Enfield Scram 411 engine and specsEngine will be the same 411cc unit currently in use with Himalayan. The air cooled, single cylinder, SOHC motor generates 24.3 bhp of max power and 32 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. It is possible that the engine may be retuned slightly in-line with the needs of a road-biased motorcycle.Much of the hardware will be same such as telescopic front forks and monoshock suspension at rear. Suspension could be made stiffer for better on-road performance. Scram 411 will have disc brakes at both ends with dual-channel ABS as standard. Himalayan has 300 mm and 240 mm disc at front and rear, respectively.[embedded content][embedded content]Launch is expected to take place later this month. Dealer training has started.

Royal Enfield Himalayan 650cc ModifiedUK-based Cooperb Motorcycles has converted a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 into a Himalayan which has been named InterlayanRoyal Enfield is probably the most popular Indian motorcycle brand in overseas markets. The bike maker is also very popular in the aftermarket industry both in India and abroad. We often come across Royal Enfield motorcycles undergoing some kind of modification on the internet.Some of these custom-built bikes are curated tastefully and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. One such example comes from the land of Royal Enfield’s origins. In the latest example, a stock Interceptor 650 has been modified into a Himalayan using an aftermarket body kit for the latter.Royal Enfield 650cc Interceptor Modified – ‘Interlayan’A video of the same has been uploaded by Cooperb Motorcycles on their YouTube channel. The motorcycle shop based out of Wellingborough in the United Kingdom has built several custom motorcycle projects in the past. Its latest creation is an Interceptor converted into a Himalayan which Cooperb is calling Interlayan 650 which is an interesting amalgam of ‘Inter’ceptor and Him‘alayan’.The modifier reveals that it isn’t a finished project and that the Royal Enfield 650cc Himalayan / Interlayan 650 is yet to undergo a few more modifications in order to become a proper adventure tourer. Still, the motorcycle has already undergone several mod jobs which have altered the bike’s appearance. For starters, the stock wheels have been replaced with wire-spoked wheels with a golden paint job around rims.[embedded content][embedded content]The wheels are now shod with dual-purpose tyres which would aid the bike during soft roading. Front suspension has been modified and now features fork gaiters. A signature windscreen, plastic front fender and beak have been added to the bike’s face. Even the stock headlight of Interceptor has been replaced with the ones used in the adventure tourer.The handlebar of the Interlayan has been changed but the twin-pod instrument cluster has been retained. Another major update is the incorporation of a new chiselled fuel tank similar to one seen in Himalayan. The aftermarket body kit also consists of metal frames that protect the body and even acts as mounting points for pannier boxes and jerry cans.The most significant alteration is a new single-side exhaust canister instead of dual canisters, one on each side in the stock Interceptor. Other functional updates made include hand-guards, an engine underbelly crash guard and aftermarket rearview mirrors finished in black bezels. The stock single-piece, flat seat has been retained as of now but will be replaced soon.Interceptor 650: SpecsPowering Interceptor 650 is a 648cc parallel-twin, air/oil-cooled motor that kicks out 47 bhp and a peak torque of 52 Nm. This engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper and assist clutch. Brakes are single discs at both ends with a 320mm disc at the front and a 240mm disc at the rear aided by a dual-channel ABS as standard. More
Royal Enfield Himalayan Fire AmbulanceTwo-wheeler based fire fighting vehicles are already in service in several other cities in India
For the standard set of firefighting trucks, it’s a challenge to reach areas such as slums and other localities with narrow streets. This issue has been faced by fire brigade personnel in several crowded cities in the country. As a solution, two-wheeler-based fire fighting vehicles have been developed. These are in service in several cities including Mumbai, Hyderabad and Kottayam.
A number of these fire-fighting vehicles are based on Royal Enfield motorcycles. The preference is apparently due to the rugged nature of Royal Enfield motorcycles.
In many cases, the choice has been Bullet 500cc bike. The latest addition will be Himalayan-based fire fighting vehicles that will be deployed with Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC).
Royal Enfield Himalayan Fire Ambulance
Himalayan-based firefighting ambulance is equipped with 20-litre water tanks on both sides at the rear. The motorcycle is unlikely to have any issues with the additional weight, as it has been designed to carry heavy luggage. In its stock form, Himalayan comes with dedicated racks at both front and rear.

At rear, the retrofitted Himalayan also gets a 100-foot pipe and spray nozzle. Other equipment includes a pump for spraying water at high pressure. While the 20-litre tanks will store water by default, it is possible that other fire extinguishing material can be added.
It’s necessary because water alone cannot extinguish all types of fires. For example, throwing water on petrol fires can actually cause them to flare up further. Himalayan firefighting bike will have two personnel on board. The bike will serve multiple purposes in addition to dousing fires. For example, it can be used for rescue and evacuation operations from areas where four-wheeled vehicles cannot reach easily.
It can be used as a reconnaissance bike that can reach the troubled spot quickly and relay information to the control room. The bikes will also work as route clearance vehicles, so that fire brigade team can cruise through traffic and reach the destination in time.

Himalayan firefighter cost
Initially, three Himalayan fire bikes are being purchased by PCMC at a cost of Rs 13.5 lakh each. It includes the price of the bike and the firefighting equipment that it carries. Stock Himalayan is available at a starting price of Rs 2.16 lakh. The retrofitting is done by a third-party agency that specializes in building firefighting equipment.
Engine will be same as stock version, a 411cc air cooled, SOHC unit. It generates 24.3 bhp of max power at 6500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4,500 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox.
To ensure it is easily noticeable, Himalayan fire bikes are expected to get a dual-tone colour scheme of red and yellow. This is the standard colour code for firefighting vehicles in most parts of the world. More
Image – SKRYezdi Adventure matches spec to spec with its closest competitor Royal Enfield Himalayan
Classic Legends recently revived the Yezdi brand by dropping three bombs- Scrambler, Roadster and Adventure. Out of these three, Adventure is garnering a lot of attention for the sheer fact it looks so similar to Royal Enfield Himalayan which also happens to be its nearest rival.
Like Himalayan, Yezdi Adventure is also a purpose-built adventure bike and it shows in its design. Apart from their design, these two bikes are comparable to each other in a lot of ways. This article reflects how the new adventure bike from Classic Legends in the block stack up against an old seasoned rival, at least on paper.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Yezdi Adventure – Specs
Starting with the powertrain, Himalayan obviously receives the larger 411cc SOHC engine which is surprisingly less powerful than the 334cc DOHC unit powering the Yezdi. While the former kicks out a peak power of 24 bhp, the latter pumps 30 bhp of maximum power. However, Himalayan does receive an advantage of slightly more torque which is achieved at a lower rpm than the Yezdi ADV.
While Royal Enfield offers a 5-speed gearbox, Yezdi utilises a 6-speed unit on its adventure bike. This should help the latter cruise on triple-digit speeds for longer durations. That said, Himalayan has a much simpler setup with its air and oil cooler as opposed to a liquid cooler in Adventure.
Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure
When it comes to adventure motorcycling, dynamics of a bike is a very crucial aspect. While Himalayan is underpinned by a Half-duplex split cradle frame, Adventure is based on a dual cradle frame. Both frames are suspended on conventional telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock. Further, both suspension units on both motorcycles offer the exact same travel of 200mm and 180mm at front and rear respectively.
Both bikes offer an identical ground clearance of 220mm, however, the saddle of Himalayan is more accessible at 800mm as compared to 815mm in Adventure. On the flip side, Yezdi is lighter at 188kg as opposed to 199kg of Himalayan. Both bikes ride on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoked wheels shod with dual-purpose tubeless tyres. In the braking department, Adventure offers a slightly larger disc brake at front.
Features on offer
In terms of features, Yezdi Adventure is the clear winner with a longer list of gizmos. For starters, Yezdi receives a fully digital instrument console as compared to Himalayan’s semi-digital unit. Both bikes receive Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, however, Yezdi gets three ABS modes (Road, Off-road, and Rain). Himalayan instead gets a switchable ABS. Yezdi also receives full-LED lighting which Himalayan misses out on.
Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure
Coming to prices, boh bikes are precariously closely priced, however, the Royal Enfield is slightly more expensive than its Yezdi counterpart. Prices for Himalayan start at 2.14 lakh whereas Adventure is available at a starting price of Rs 2.10 lakh (ex-showroom). On paper, Yezdi Adventure certainly offers more value for money in comparison to Royal Enfield Himalayan. More
Image for reference. Credit – Bike Exif.A diversified portfolio with new products like Himalayan 450cc will help Royal Enfield to stay ahead in the game
As part of its long-term strategy, Royal Enfield is working to launch an average of one new/updated product every quarter. One of these is Royal Enfield Himalayan 450, which is expected to be available for sale in first quarter of 2023. Although the basic silhouette looks familiar to Himalayan 411, Himalayan 450 utilizes an entirely new platform.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 styling and features
Codenamed K1, Himalayan 450 comes across as a premium Adv bike. It can emerge as a viable alternative to the likes of KTM 390 Adventure, BMW G310GS and other similar Adv bikes. The core Himalayan DNA is retained, as evident with features such as round headlamp and rear-view mirrors, raised front fender and matching frame construction.
Use of spoke wheels, shod with knobby tubeless tyres is another feature that’s common to both bikes. Himalayan 450 is likely to use 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel, the same setup as that of current Himalayan.
Just like Himalayan 411, users can expect relaxed riding ergonomics with Himalayan 450. It’s made possible with features such as centrally placed footpegs, thick saddle and pulled-back, wide handlebar. Upswept exhaust in metallic finish is another similar looking feature.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450cc Render
In terms of things that give Himalayan 450 a unique identity, the bike gets a compact windscreen, trendier fuel tank design, and single-piece seat. It could be equipped with a new digital instrument console. The bike is likely to ditch much of the exoskeleton that can be seen with Himalayan 411. For users who may need it, the front and rear rack could be offered as an accessory.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450cc – engine and specs
Powering Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 will be a liquid cooled, single cylinder motor that generates 40 bhp of max power. Just like other Adv bikes, Himalayan 450 will focus on delivering better performance in low and mid-range. As of now, torque for Himalayan 450 has not been revealed.
Existing Himalayan is powered by a 411cc motor that churns out 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm. It is mated to a 5-speed, constant mesh gearbox. In comparison, KTM 390 Adv is powered by a 373cc motor that delivers 43 bhp and 37 Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. BMW G310GS is powered by a 313cc motor that generates 34 bhp and 28 Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Himalayan 450 will be utilizing a trellis frame and is likely to be lighter than Himalayan 411. It will have USD forks at front, as compared to conventional telescopic forks used with Himalayan 411. Front suspension travel and ground clearance could be on the higher side. Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is expected to be priced at around Rs 2.7 lakh (ex-sh). It will be cheaper than KTM 390 Adventure (~ Rs 3.28 lakh) and BMW G310GS (~ Rs 3 lakh).
Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 – Production SpecRoyal Enfield Scram 411 is expected to be slightly affordable than the current Himalayan when launched
Among the next big launches from Royal Enfield, Scram 411 holds huge significance. Essentially a road-biased version of the current Himalayan, Scram is expected to be slightly more modest in its approach as far as adventure touring is concerned.
Test mules of the upcoming bike have been spotted testing on multiple occasions in recent times. The scrambler has been spotted yet again in a production avatar just ahead of its launch. Latest spy shots are credit to Dr Firoz Khan.
Even though it will carry forward the same underpinnings from Himalayan, it will be more directed towards customers who wish to travel long distances on tarmac. The latest spy shots further highlight variations between Himalayan and Scram.
Himalayan Scram 411 Red – Updated Styling
While the current Himalayan offers a distinct presence on roads, the upcoming Scram 411 is rather subdued. Scram misses out on a few styling attributes which provide Himalayan the ADV appeal. For starters, Scram doesn’t feature a windscreen upfront and the signature exoskeleton which gives its ADV sibling an overall rugged appearance.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 – Production Spec
Ergonomics of Scram also appear to be slightly different than that of Himalayan with a slightly repositioned handlebar. Similarly, the tail section also seems to be redesigned with respect to the positioning of the taillamp and rear turn indicators. Other styling highlights include revised front and rear mudguards, a side-on upswept exhaust canister, a single-piece seat, fork gaiters, single-piece grab rail and a round headlamp.
The motorcycle rides on 19-inch wire-spoked wheels on both ends instead of a larger 21-inch front unit in Himalayan. We expect the wheels to be wrapped around by block pattern, dual-purpose tyres so that the bike is able to carry out some amount of soft roading. A rear luggage carrier will most likely be offered as an accessory to augment its touring capabilities.
Powertrain, Hardware Specs
Scram 411 will be powered by the same 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC engine that propels Himalayan. However, earlier reports have mentioned that this motor could be equipped with a liquid cooler in Scram 411. In its current air-cooled avatar, this engine makes 24.3 bhp at 6,500rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4000-4500rpm. This motor will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Suspension setup of the motorcycle will comprise conventional telescopic forks upfront and a mono-shock at rear. However, the setup will be tweaked for slightly more road-friendly mannerisms. Braking will be carried out by disc brakes at both ends which would probably be aided by dual-channel ABS. Another feature expected to be on offer is the Tripper Navigation pod on the instrument console.
2022 Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 via DownShift GoaChanges reveal new Himalayan variant is better equipped and seems more practical for city streets
Following on its aggressive product strategy, Royal Enfield has been continuously testing multiple products in recent times. These include new bikes in both 350cc and 650cc segment. A new motorcycle based on Himalayan has also been spotted. This appears to be a road-biased version of the popular off-roader.
Ahead of its launch, which is expected sometime next month, the new 2022 Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 motorcycle has been spied in Goa in production ready guise. The new RE is in Goa likely for its official TVC shoot. Hat tip to folks at DownShift Goa for sharing these exclusive spy shots via Rushlane Spylane.
New Himalayan variant – Royal Enfield Scram 411
While a Himalayan on the streets commands attention, this new variant has a relatively inconspicuous profile. This could also be described as a no-frills version of the Himalayan. The basic idea appears focused on stripping Himalayan of most of its specialized off-road equipment and features.
At the front, new Himalayan variant gets a smaller wheel. It is likely to be a 19-inch unit, as compared to 21-inch of the current model. Other parts missing include fork gaiters, raised front fender and visor. It is possible that some of this equipment, especially visor, may be offered as an accessory. In other changes, the headlamp mask appears to have been redesigned.
2022 Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411
It is likely that the instrument panel will be an updated unit with option for Tripper navigation system. 2021 Himalayan had received the Tripper system earlier this year in February. Tripper system was first introduced with Meteor 350 and is now also available with new-gen Classic 350. Most other new / next-gen Royal Enfield motorcycles are expected to get Tripper navigation.
At the sides, this new Himalayan variant missed out on front racks. It is a key component on-board Himalayan, both in terms of visual appeal as well as functional use. Instead of the rack, the bike gets small tank shrouds. These have a blacked-out look on the test mule. In production-spec version, the tank shrouds could sport some graphics. Other components on the side such as upswept exhaust, body panels, and split seats are the same as that of Himalayan.
At the rear, the rack for luggage and panniers has been removed. Instead, the bike gets a standard pillion grab rail. While design and positioning of tail lamp is same, turn indicators have been moved further down. On Himalayan, the turn indicators are placed below the rear rack.
To ensure a distinct identity, some new colour options can be introduced for road-biased Himalayan variant. Himalayan is currently offered in colour options of Mirage Silver, Granite Black, Pine Green, Rock Red, Lake Blue and Gravel Grey.
As per DownShift Goa, the production spec 2022 Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 was powered by a liquid cooled motor. Current Himalayan is powered by a 411cc, SOHC, air cooled engine as the current model. It is capable of generating 24.3 bhp of max power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4000-4500 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh transmission.
Himalayan is equipped with 41mm telescopic front forks and monoshock rear suspension with linkage. Braking system comprises 300 mm disc at front and 240 mm disc at rear. It is integrated with dual-channel ABS. More

Upon its launch, the road-biased Royal Enfield Himalayan could be slightly more affordable than its pure adventure sibling
Royal Enfield will be introducing multiple new models in the coming few months as part of a grand expansion plan. One of those is a more affordable iteration of Himalayan which will be a road-biased version of the same. Speculated to be named Scram 411, this new motorcycle will essentially be a stripped-down version of the adventure bike.
This upcoming model will cater to motorcyclists looking for a road-biased tourer that can occasionally venture into soft-roading instead of some hardcore trail bashing. Test mules of this bike have been spotted on various occasions over the last few months.
2022 Royal Enfield Scram 411 – Updated Styling
The latest set of spy pics are credited to automotive enthusiast @this_is_comet. This new spy images reveal the upcoming Scram 411 in almost undisguised avatar without any major camouflage. From the images, it is evident that a majority of the design of Scram 411 has been inspired by the current Himalayan. However, a few panels seen in the latter have been shed in its road-biased version which gives it a leaner look.
The most prominent change is the signature exoskeleton of Himalayan has been replaced with tank shrouds. Further, Scram 411 appears to ride on smaller 19-inch front wheels as opposed to 21-inch units in the adventure tourer. However, in both derivatives, the wire-spoked wheels are shod by block pattern, dual-purpose tyres. The luggage rack mounted at the rear is replaced by a single-piece grab rail.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411
Tail section of Scram 411 also seems to be redesigned with the relative positioning of its taillamp and rear turn indicators appearing slightly different from the current bike. Other styling updates include a revised headlamp mask, redesigned and repositioned front turn indicators, fork gaiters and revised front and rear mudguards.
It also misses out on a traditional beak-like fender and a large windscreen as seen in the current Himalayan. Other highlights such as a split-seating setup and an upswept exhaust canister have been carried forward from Himalayan.
Features & Specs
In terms of features, the upcoming Scram 411 is likely to receive a smaller instrument console that could offer the Tripper Navigation pod as an accessory. Getting into details of its hardware, it will be underpinned by the same frame as Himalayan which will be suspended on telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock at rear. However, the suspension setup will be tweaked for more road-friendly mannerisms.
Powering Scram 411 will be the same 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC engine that empowers Himalayan. This motor pushes out 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm of peak torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. That said, Royal Enfield may tune the engine slightly differently for the road-biased motorcycle. More
