One of these is Royal Enfield Himalayan 450, which has just been spied. It 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 featuresCodenamed 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 by BikewaleIn 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 specsPowering Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 will be a liquid cooled, single cylinder motor that generates 40 bhp of max power.

    Royal Enfield Scram 411 Review – Better Than Himalayan?

    Royal Enfield Scram 411 feels like a Himalayan in most ways yet it is able to please you with its qualities that aren’t like the ADVRoyal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewRoyal Enfield hit a gold mine when it launched Himalayan back in 2016. It was the first true adventure bike for the entry-level segment in India which only had a Hero Impulse (a not-so-worthy predecessor to Xpulse) at that time. Like all Royal Enfield motorcycles, Himalayan too had its limitations.However, in this case, limitations had more to do with riders than the bike itself. Its daunting appeal, heavy feel, difficulty in manoeuvring and very tall stance, made it a complicated affair for newbie riders. With feedback received from buyers, Royal Enfield decided to offer something simpler to the buyers in terms of accessibility.Hence, it led to the birth of Scram 411 which is a leaner, a little less sophisticated and a more affordable derivative of Himalayan. It promises to do almost everything that the latter is able to do and offer a bit more. The new bike offers an easier riding experience for someone who is looking to buy his/her first big bike. So is it as fun as Himalayan or does it fall short in an attempt to be something entirely different? Let’s find out.Design- Same yet DifferentAt first glance, one can clearly identify its Himalayan lineage with a similar structure and stance. That said, multiple components have been deleted from the package which lends Scram a whole different appearance. For starters, gone are those huge side braces, that large windscreen and beak upfront and a nifty luggage rack rear.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewAll these deletions have resulted in a more minimalist and simpler design that looks aesthetically pleasing. Scram 411 also receives subtle variations in styling like a retro round headlamp encased within a new metal cowl and a new single-piece seat as compared to a split unit in Himalayan. In a typical scrambler fashion, Royal Enfield has used shorter front and rear fenders.With the exoskeleton missing, the bikemaker has incorporated a small panel on each side of the fuel tank with the Royal Enfield branding imprinted on it, thus lending a distinct touch to the motorcycle. Other highlights like a sculpted fuel tank, a raised tail section, an upswept exhaust canister and fork gaiters have been carried forward from its ADV sibling.Another area where Royal Enfield has aced is the colour options on offer in Scram 411. A total of seven paint schemes are on offer with this bike. We especially love the one wrapped around our test bike- Silver Spirit which contains a dark theme with contrasting neon green highlights accentuating the bike’s sportiness.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewErgonomics, Features, QualityMajor differences with Himalayan are felt when the rider takes to the saddle. For starters, the handlebar is now 60mm lower and 20mm closer to the rider which makes for a more comfortable riding posture. Rider’s seat is broad with ample cushioning that comes to aid when touring long distances. However, that comfort doesn’t translate to the pillion thanks to its odd shape and limited size.In terms of features, it gets bare basic equipment with a halogen headlight and turn indicators, LED taillight, a single-pod semi-digital instrument cluster and a side-stand engine inhibitor as standard fitment. It even misses out on a USB charger which at this segment is a must. Tripper Navigation is offered only as an optional accessory through Royal Enfield’s MIY program.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewAs far as quality is concerned, Royal Enfield has managed to package it well enough. Quality of seats and switchgear are decent though they lack a premium feel. The offset instrument console has been borrowed from Meteor 350 but gets a different colour treatment. One major drawback is the quality of the Tripper Navigation display which isn’t much of a use when viewed under direct sunlight.Ride & Handling- Some Changes FeltScram gets a shorter 19-inch front wheel instead of a 21-inch unit in Himalayan which results in a smaller rake angle for the front suspension, therefore, leading to a tighter steering geometry. It also translates to a shorter wheelbase and a lower ride height of 200mm as compared to 220mm in Himalayan. As a cumulative effect, all this results in sharper and more precise handling, especially around twisties.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewThe motorcycle gets a kerb weight of 185 kilos (without a centre stand) which is 14 kilos lighter than its ADV sibling. This reduced weight does not make much of a difference in a static condition as it still feels heavy managing in a tight parking space. However, it does feel a lot livelier when manoeuvring through tight spots in traffic or when pulling the throttle hard thanks to the lighter front end.Enfield has also stiffened the suspension a bit more to improve its on-road mannerisms. A firmer setup has resulted in a more planted and assured ride on tarmac which incites more confidence in the rider. That said, it also has its downsides, as bumps and potholes are felt more sharply. Front suspension travel has been reduced by 10mm which doesn’t make any noticeable effect on its off-roading capabilities.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewDuring our testing stint, we took the Scram through some very harsh terrains which it was able to overcome with relative ease. Surely the smaller front wheel will have its limitations, especially in extreme rocky terrains but Scram 411 will be able to overhaul most adventure trails depending on the rider’s skill set.Engine Performance- Same Old, Same OldScram 411 gets the same 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that dishes out 24 bhp at 6500rpm and 32Nm of peak torque at 4000-4500rpm. Although output and construction of the engine remain identical, Royal Enfield claims that it has made changes to its ignition timing and this same engine mapping will be available for Himalayan as well.However, this does not result in any noticeable change in the bike’s performance. As mentioned earlier, Scram 411 feels more agile and slightly livelier thanks to the reduced weight at its front end. Throttle response remains good enough but there is a definite lack of surge felt at the top end.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewIdeally, one would want to keep the engine revving in mid-range in order to extract the best out of this motor. Vibrations from the power mill are very well contained and only mild vibes are felt once the speedo needle hits the 100kmph mark. Scram is best enjoyed at speeds between 80 to 90 kmph where one can cruise all day long.While the engine remains quite tractable in most conditions, for instant overtakes one is often found to be one gear too high for the motor’s liking. Speaking of gearbox, it gets the same 5-speed unit which is quite smooth although positioning of the shifter could have been better as we found it a bit too much inwards. The clutch lever also takes a lot of effort and a continuous long ride throughout the day, especially in city traffic, would lead to an aching left hand.Braking setup has also been carried forward from Himalayan hence it provides adequate bite. It misses out on a switchable ABS that could have further amplified its off-road credentials but the dual-channel setup does work and provides a more assured riding experience on tarmac. It also receives the same set of rubber from Ceat Gripp that is equally potent on-road as well as off-road.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 ReviewVerdictScam 411 has been touted as an easier and more accessible version of Himalayan but it manages to fare only slightly better than its ADV sibling in these aspects. Also, priced between Rs 2.03 lakh and Rs 2.08 lakh (ex-showroom), it isn’t significantly cheaper as well. The one area where it clearly trumps its donor model is its looks thanks to the funky paint schemes and compact proportions.In the process of simplifying the riding experience, Royal Enfield has created a product that isn’t going to set any benchmarks for any of its qualities. However, it will be able to fulfil almost everything that Himalayan does but with slight ease and more comfort and that is where this motorcycle shines.In short, Scram 411 will mostly attract buyers who love Himalayan for what it offers but it won’t be their preferred choice due to its intimidating and heavy appearance. It is very well known that Himalayan isn’t everyone’s cup of tea because to enjoy its full potential, one needs to develop a certain level of skill set. Hence, amateur riders would find it easier if they upgrade to Scram 411 which presents itself as a more likeable alternative to Himalayan. More

    Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Scram 411 Vs Yezdi Scrambler – Comparison

    Both Royal Enfield Scram 411 and Yezdi Scrambler are aimed at a similar section of buyers who opt for touring as well as scrambling on rough terrains occasionallyImage – Dev MTRRoyal Enfield has launched the much awaited Scram 411 in India at a starting price of Rs 2.03 lakh (ex-showroom). Even before it got launched, Scram 411 has been compared closely with models- Royal Enfield Himalayan and Yezdi Scrambler.The former since Scram is based on the ADV and is a more accessible derivative of the same. The latter because it is Scram’s sole direct rival currently in the Indian market. Now that we have got hold of Scram 411’s official details, we have pitted it against its two closest nemeses and checked how it fares against them on paper.Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Scram 411 Vs Yezdi ScramblerEven though Scram 411 is based on Himalayan there have been quite a few changes that have led to varying dimensions. The most significant of those is a shorter 17-inch front wheel instead of a 21-inch unit in Himlayan which has resulted in a tighter rake angle for Scram at its front fork. It has also resulted in a reduction of wheelbase and ground clearance by 10mm and 20mm respectively.Due to deletions of components like tank braces, front windscreen and luggage mounting rack at rear, kerb weight of Scram stands 14kg lighter than its ADV sibling. On the other hand, it is still 3kg heavier than Yezdi Scrambler. Both scramblers get same ground clearance but the one from Yezdi offers a much shorter wheelbase of 1403mm. Scram also receives the shortest seat height of 795mm.Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Scram 411 Vs Yezdi ScramblerPowertrain SpecsBoth Scram and Himalayan are identical in this department as they are powered by the same 411cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm of peak torque. In comparison, Yezdi Scrambler is powered by a smaller 334cc engine, however, this one produces a higher output thanks to a liquid cooler.The powertrain in Yezdi Scrambler kicks out 28.7 bhp and 28.2 Nm of peak torque. This unit is paired with a 6-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch. At the same time, Royal Enfield siblings are offered a 5-speed gearbox.Hardware SpecsEven in terms of hardware configurations, Scram 411 is almost identical to its donor model. Both are underpinned by a Half-duplex split cradle frame that is suspended on 41mm telescopic forks upfront and a mono-shock at rear. However, front forks for Scram offer 10mm less travel than its adventure twin. In case of Yezdi, it features twin gas-charged shock absorbers at rear.Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Scram 411 Vs Yezdi ScramblerScram and Scrambler have an exact same wheel configuration with the latter offering slightly fatter tyres at rear. Braking configurations are also similar for all three bikes with Yezdi offering a slightly larger 320mm disc brake at front. All three bikes offer dual-channel ABS as standard, however, Himalayan gets a switchable unit which lends it better control on rough terrains.PricesScram has the lowest priced base model at Rs 2.03 lakh, followed by Yezdi Scrambler at Rs 2.07 lakh and Himalayan at Rs 2.15 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom). The same trend continues in higher variants as well but price differences are not alarming to affect one’s buying decision. More

    Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 TVC Leaks – New Details

    Scram 411 is expected to be priced around Rs 20k cheaper than Himalayan that is offered at Rs 2.15 lakhRoyal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411As part of its plan to expand its portfolio, Royal Enfield will be using its existing platforms to launch new products. It helps reduce development and production cost. We have seen this with Meteor and upcoming Hunter in 350cc segment. Royal Enfield 650cc range will also be expanded with the existing platform being used for 650 twins. Another new product is Scram 411, which is based on Himalayan.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411Urban dwellers do get the call of the wild, but possibilities are fairly limited due to professional and other commitments. For such folks, investing in a true-blue adventure bike like Himalayan doesn’t seem appropriate. Moreover, it’s not possible for everyone to own multiple bikes. Royal Enfield Scram 411 seems like a better choice, as it can effectively tackle both city streets and mild off-road tracks.Himalayan’s scope for use in urban environment is limited by its bulky profile. Of course, one can ride it, but it will be a challenge in heavy traffic and tight spots. As a solution, Scram 411 drops much of the adventure-tourer equipment.It includes Himalayan’s signature exoskeleton that has heavy-duty luggage racks at front and rear. This reduces the bike’s width and makes it lightweight as well, ensuring a better fit for urban commuting needs. Ahead of launch tomorrow, official TVC has leaked online.[embedded content][embedded content]Other features that have been removed from Scram 411 include knuckle guards, windscreen and raised front fender. 21-inch front wheel used with Himalayan has been replaced with smaller 19-inch unit. This has effectively reduced overall height of the bike. Ground clearance has come down to 200 mm, as compared to 220 mm of Himalayan. At the rear, Scram 411 has standard-looking grab rail.The bike seems appropriate for everyday commutes and some weekend fun, as compared to endless hours of extreme off-roading possible with Himalayan. On streets, Scram 411 can easily merge with the rest of the traffic. In comparison, Himalayan’s presence on the tarmac often gets quite a few curious glances and some frowns as well.Royal Enfield Scram 411 specsPowering the bike will be the same 411cc engine in use with Himalayan. The single cylinder, air cooled unit makes 24.3 bhp and 32 Nm and is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox. To match the bike’s road-biased character, the engine could be tweaked accordingly.Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411Other hardware includes standard telescopic forks, linkage rear suspension, disc brakes at both ends and dual-channel ABS. Wheels are 19-inch front and 17-inch rear, shod with block-patterned dual purpose tyres. Features like Tripper Navigation are optional and can be added via Royal Enfield’s MIY customization utility.At the time of its launch, Royal Enfield Scram 411 will not have any direct rivals. This can work to the bike’s advantage. Competitive pricing is another factor that can help boost sales of Scram 411. More
