Royal Enfield Scram 411s THE ADVENTURE BEAST

A A- A+
The Scram 411, Royal Enfield’s first urban adventure crossover, was recently introduced in Nepal. The bike is built on Royal Enfield’s proven LS-410 engine platform and the Harris performance chassis and has been designed for both on and off-road riding. The blend of genuine adventure DNA with scrambler playfulness and characters like an urban badge plate, an offset speedo and scrambler single-piece seat give the Scram 411 an attractive retro look. The 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels help the rider take on anything thrown their way. The seat height of 795 mm keeps the rider comfortable on longer rides. On an uphill ride from Kathmandu to Nagarkot, the adventure crossover powered by the 411 cc, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, SOHC, air-cooled single-cylinder engine needed fewer gear changes. Having the medium handlebar manoeuvring made the ride effortless, while overtaking other vehicles was easier with the quick response throttle. On sharp bends, the bike keeps the rider’s confidence up. At 60 kmph, the bike easily took on sharp bends in the downhill ride. The cornering ABS is missing in this adventure bike while there is dual channel ABS. Also, there is no switch to turn off the rear ABS which could prove handy on loose soil. The adventure beast with a kerb weight of 185 kg gives a light feeling when the rider has to remain stationary in traffic congestion. However, the heat from the engine can be felt on the feet while the bike is halted. At some points, the engine would not start until the gear lever was brought to neutral. The five-speed transmission was not cooperative at times while downshifting multiple gears. Pulling the clutch was just at the limit of comfort level, nonetheless light. The tyres did a good job taking grip and control in on and off-road conditions. Standing on foot pegs while passing through a rough terrain exerted pressure on the calves from the side covers. RE could improve the footpeg positions. In tough uphill and downhill ride, the adventure beast cruised with nonchalance offering a comfortable seating position. It felt natural to reach the handlebar while the seat provided comfort. The 1,165mm height is sufficient to provide enough space to rest the feet on the foot peg. The response of 41mm telescopic fork is harsh in rough terrain while the rear shock is fun and less affected. Royal Enfield’s claim of churning out 24.3BHP (17.88KW) at 6500 RPM power is enough for novices as well as experienced riders to enjoy the rough terrain on Scram 411. The air-cooled engine remained smooth at 105 kmph on Koteshwor - Bhaktapur road along the Araniko Highway. The front 300mm disc brake with 2-piston floating caliper and rear 240 mm disc with single piston were impressive on the downhill ride. Is it worth investing in Royal Enfield’s Scram 411, the retro-style urban adventure crossover? The answer would be a resounding YES. It is modestly priced at Rs 660,000 and available in seven colours — White Flame, Silver Spirit, Blazing Black, Skyline Blue, Graphite Yellow, Graphite Red and Graphite Blue across three variants. Royal Enfield has recently started operations of its exclusive local assembly unit and CKD facility in Birgunj. Launched earlier in India and across global markets, Scram 411 is now assembled in Nepal. Specifications:
