Royal Enfield Scram 411 Arrives In Malaysia From RM26,900
Is the Scram 411 the best value scrambler on sale right now?
Royal Enfield has launched Scram 411 at its flagship showroom in Petaling Jaya with prices starting from RM26,900 to RM27,100 and to RM27,400.
Very small price differences and it will probably be the highest specification that will take a ‘lions’ share of the sales.
The Scram is a scrambler-styled motorcycle based on very popular Royal Enfield Himalayan and is suited for touring and urban commute. But given that it is based on Himalayan, the Scram 411 is a robust motorcycle capable of negotiating tough terrains, albeit not as well as its ADV sibling.
This Indian two-wheeler maker has started accepting orders for the Scram 411 in Malaysia even before its launch as the interest in Royal Enfield motorcycles has surged since the re-launch of the brand.
Meanwhile, the deliveries are expected to commence very soon. The latest Royal Enfield bike is based on the same platform that underpins Himalayan and the two bikes have several mechanical similarities.
Launched in 2016, the purpose-built Himalayan motorcycle is an absolutely versatile and truly off-road capable motorcycle. Taking forward this journey, Royal Enfield, the global leader in the mid-size motorcycle segment in January 2020 announced the launch of the new Himalayan with BS-VI compliant engine.
This new Himalayan retains the original versatility and vigour of the motorcycle, and makes the ride experience more engaging by adding a Switchable ABS feature. Switching the ABS off allows the rear wheel to lock, and lets the rider drift when riding off-road.
This makes adventure touring and trail riding experience more engaging and exciting for riding enthusiasts. With more focus on rider safety, the new Himalayan is equipped with a hazard switch that warns other riders in its proximity in case of a red flag.
In addition to this, the enhanced brake mechanism ensures a smoother riding experience with lesser stopping distance. The new motorcycle will also come with an improved side-stand that will make parking on any kind of terrains easier.
The motorcycle is easy to manage over long urban commutes with minimum gear shifts, and the confidence-inspiring engine performance allows it to tackle bad road, and off-road sections easily.
The Scram 411 is powered by the globally appreciated 411cc, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, SOHC, air-cooled single-cylinder engine. The engine has a maximum power of 24.3bhp at 6500rpm and max torque of 32Nm at 4000-4500 rpm which ensures smooth power delivery and strong bottom end torque that elevates the overall performance.
Traversing the urban maze on a motorcycle demands confidence, comfort and stability – be it snaking traffic snarls and pot-holed roads, or the hidden tracks on back roads best for cheeky evening slides.
With its long travel suspension and monoshocks, and class-leading 200mm ground clearance, the Scram 411 promises a smooth and comfortable ride for the rider and pillion over long stretches on the saddle.
The telescopic front suspension with 41mm forks and 190mm travel, along with 180mm travel on the rear with monoshock linkages, ensure stable and confident riding over varying and rough road conditions. The front and the rear discs combined with dual-channel ABS, offer confident braking.
The wheel sizes are ideal to provide best handling and excellent rolling capability over speed bumps and potholes. The dual-purpose tyres ensure a confident grip over tarmac and on loose gravel, while bringing the perfect combination of on-road grip and rough-road tractability.
The change in the riding geometry is brought about by the 19-inch, dual purpose front tyres. This combined with the 17-inch rear tyres are key elements that bring nimble handling to the motorcycle.
The seat on the new Scram 411 has been reimagined for greater comfort over long saddle time. The new single seat that reflects the urban styling of the motorcycle, offers great comfort for both rider and pillion in long city commute as well as when taking the road less travelled. The accessible seat height makes it easy to maneuver the motorcycle in stop and go traffic.
The ride ergonomics on the Scram 411 feels very planted and confident. The handlebar position, and seat height make the ride experience dynamic, and engaging. It retains a commanding and comfortable riding position while making it easy to ride when seated or standing up.
With colourway inspirations coming from hip-hop cultures like skating, and night streets in cities like Tokyo and New Delhi, the new Scram 411 is available in seven colourways across three variants.
Designed to stand-out, the colourways reflect a distinct urban vibe, with dark shades combined with highlight colours to pop and break the monotony. The Scram 411 in Graphite Yellow, Graphite Red and Graphite Blue, come with grey tanks and distinct tank badges and matching tyre rim tapes.
The Skyline Blue and Blazing Black have distinct colour tanks with the identifiable Royal Enfield stripes and matching mud guards. The top-end variant, in two colourways – White Flame and Silver Spirit – flaunts dual tank colours, with unique and fun graphics.
The Scram 411 comes adventure ready with an array of 19 motorcycle accessories that complement the lifestyle and purpose, and provide enhanced comfort, protection and style.
Designed, developed and homologated alongside the motorcycle, the range includes accessories for protection, style and comfort. Ideal for riding in the urban environment and over weekend getaways, Royal Enfield’s Genuine Motorcycle Accessories come with a comprehensive 3-year warranty.
The apparel and riding gear range for the Scram 411 is stylish and functional. It works beautifully when you’re on the motorcycle exploring unpaved paths or zipping around the city.
Jerseys equipped with additional Eva foam at the shoulder and elbow provide impact protection for the rider. The lifestyle apparel range reflects the Scram lifestyle with t-shirts and jackets in vibrant colours and checkered graphics.
