Charles Darwin’s Voyage Of Discovery and the subsequent theory of natural selection makes a case for survival of the most adaptable. Fitting of the oldest motorcycle company in continuous production in the world, the Scram 411 is Royal Enfield’s evolutionary take on its flagship Himalayan ADV bike. It is a new subspecies combining scrambler vibes and adventure touring in its DNA. With long-travel suspension and class-leading ground clearance paired with a 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear, the Scram 411 is a new breed of bike entirely, evolved so that exploration doesn’t end when the pavement stops.

Speaking about creating a new subspecies of motorcycles, Royal Enfield’s Chief Of Design Mark Wells notes, “Most scrambler motorcycles focus only on aesthetics and looks. When we began work on the Scram 411, we were determined to create a motorcycle that would be distinct in design and purpose and bring the best of rough-road capability to urban riding. With its distinctive look, playful colorways and accessible riding proposition, the Scram 411 is an ultimate ADV crossover for the urban environment.”

Driving evolution is its 411cc, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, SOHC, air-cooled single-cylinder engine. A counterbalancer ensures smooth power delivery and strong bottom-end torque. According to Wells design brief, the wide spread of useable power makes it easy to manage over long urban commutes with minimum gear shifts, and the confidence-inspiring low-revving torque allows it to tackle bad road, and off-road sections easily.

Soaking up those transitions from tarmac to turf, telescopic 41mm forks with 7.4 inches (190mm) travel are combined with a link-mounted monoshock offering 7 inches (180mm) travel on the rear. A 19-inch front/17-inch rear wheel pairing makes for more nimble handling in the urban jungle. The total package delivers a class leading 7.8 inches (200mm) of ground clearance with an accessible 31.2-inch seat height. 

The global unveil was March 15, but the new Scram 411 is already available in India, and will be reaching Europe, Asia Pacific, North America and Latin America later this year, according to Royal Enfield North America’s Breeann Poland. “The Scram 411 is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. late summer/early fall. Pricing and colorways will be announced in the coming months.”
