The Scram 411, Royal Enfield's most awaited scrambler motorcycle, was launched last month. The motorbike is based on the foundations of the well-known Royal Enfield Himalayan ADV. These two horses from the same stable share a lot of similarities, yet they also have some differences. Here's is a quick comparison of RE Scram 411 vs RE Himalayan and the key difference between them.
RE Scram 411 vs RE Himalayan: Design
The Himalayan is purely an adventure motorcycle and it has the elements which loudly tell its ADV character. On the other hand, the Scram 411 is more of a dual-purpose motorcycle which will support you if you want to take it for a spin away from the tarmac. Starting from the front end, the Himalayan has a windscreen atop the headlight whereas the Scram 411 doesn't get one. Instead, it has a cowl around the headlight.
The Scram 411 has a lower handlebar that is more oriented towards the rider, as well as a 5 mm lower seat height than the RE offroader. The RE scrambler is also 5 kg lighter than its ADV counterpart, making it slightly easier to handle.
RE Scram 411 vs RE Himalayan: Suspension and Braking
The Himalayan and Cram 411 get the same 41mm mono-shock telescopic fork but the Himalayan has somewhat longer front wheel travel. The suspension travel is also due to the wheel size. The Himalayan also gets a bigger 21-inch front wheel and the Scram gets a smaller 19-inch front wheel.
The Himalayan has 200 mm front wheel travel and 180 mm rear wheel travel, whilst the Scram 411 has 190 mm front wheel travel and 180 mm rear-wheel travel. The Scram 411 and Himalayan come standard with 300 mm front and 240 mm rear disc brakes, as well as dual-channel ABS. The switchable ABS option seen on the Himalayan is not available on the Scram.
RE Scram 411 vs RE Himalayan: Instrumentation and Feature
In keeping with its ADV persona, the RE Himalayan boasts a significantly more complete instrument cluster. In addition to the speedometer and other lights, you have a tachometer, compass, and Tripper navigation pod.
On the other hand, the instrument pod on the Scram 411 is similar to the one on Meteor 350. The digital display for the fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter, and other functions are available in the analogue speedometer. On the Scram 411, Royal Enfield offers the Tripper Navigation as an option.
RE Scram 411 vs RE Himalayan: Engine Specs
Both motorbikes get their power from a 411cc engine and have the same mechanical specs. The engine has a power output of 24.3 horsepower and a max torque of 32 Nm. The Scram 411's engine has been modified to meet the bike's characteristics. In both bikes, a five-speed constant mesh gearbox is available to support the engine.
RE Scram 411 vs RE Himalayan: Price Difference
The price difference between the two bikes is not much but it will most likely affect the buying decision of a customer. The Scram 411 costs between Rs 2.03 lakh to Rs 2.08 lakh (ex-showroom), while the Himalayan sits between Rs 2.15 lakh to Rs 2.22 lakh (ex-showroom).
