When it was revealed a while ago, much was made of Royal Enfield’s decision to go upmarket.
The company had decades to perfect a niche at the bottom end of the Indian market.But now it was ready to move up.
There was nothing wrong with that plan. And nothing stopped competitors from “going high-end” like the Scram.
However, what remained to be seen is how the online motorcycle community would react to Scram’s proportions, ergonomics, and aesthetics in real life.
- RE files the new trademark by name ‘ Scram ‘
- New RE 650cc cruiser and Scram 411 spotted
- MB Cycles creates the custom BMW R18
Because unlike an EICMA showstopper surrounded by product podiums and a never-ending crowd of media photographers. There is no way to judge these things without seeing it for yourself in some regular traffic.
Royal Enfield has been teasing out a new product for the middleweight market: the Scrambler.
The Scrambler pre-production model, spotted in India earlier.Appears to be wearing some temporary bodywork, with a front round headlight guard and mudguard now visible on one side.
We’ve seen images of prototypes on the test, heard rumours of possible arrival.And even caught a glimpse of the production headlight. Now, a new set of spy images showing a test mule in undisguised form has emerged online.
The clay model we saw earlier happened to show the bike with Himalayan’s 411cc single powerplant. And we may not see any changes in the powerplant.
More to it will be 18-inch wire-spoke wheels and lower fender. While Royal Enfield has been tight-lipped about the launch date for their new cool motorcycle, we’re getting closer to the official release date.
Paarth Khatri, a motorcycle enthusiast, has put a YouTube video showing the upcoming Scram undisguised.
This time in the video, the test mule looked more like a finished product.With no windscreen, clear signal indicators and dark red and black everything on its front end.Save for a silver headlight bezel with hints of brushed aluminium.
The frame appears to be sturdy with minimal bodywork over it.Just look at those exposed front forks and rear shocks.
Ergonomics seem to be good, too.With up-turned handlebars and a forward-set footpeg position, conventional round rearview mirrors. A feature that characterises Enfield bikes.
Expect the launch in 2022.
