The Royal Enfield Scrambler was expected for quite a while. Now there is some sort of confirmation of this as, Royal Enfield has filed a trademark for a brand name for the same. Will the bike be based on the 650cc Interceptor? Will the new Meteor platform and engine be tweaked for the same? Another Royal Enfield bike with purpose built off-road capability like the Himalayan would be a great choice to explore. Here is all that we expect could be seen on the Royal Enfield Scram.
The trade market is for the word Royal Enfield Scram. This has been trademarked for motorcycle and motorcycle goods. You can take a look at the e-filing online below.
What is Scram?
We expect the RE Enfield Scram can be a 350cc or 650cc bike based on the Meteor/Interceptor. Let’s first talk about the Meteor as it would be more likely to come to market first. It was spotted testing previously and has a lot of parts that were shared with the Royal Enfield Meteor. Take a look at the images below. This will have a new 350cc engine with a SOCH layout. A 6-speed gearbox will be accompanied.
Aggressive riding posture
If you look at the Meteor it does not offer a much aggressive riding posture. The scrambler will make this happen with a flatter handlebar which might be wider. The footpegs will be slightly rear set. Along with this, the seat will also be a bit higher which will enable the rider to have a more aggressive place in the saddle. The handlebars will be a bit raised too. The footpegs should be fatter and the same ones like we see on the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
The exhaust on this Royal Enfield Sram will be slightly upswept and this has been spotted in the images. It will compete with the CB350 RS. We can expect a slightly different exhaust note too because of this.
There is a slight chance that this Royal Enfield Scram could be based on the 650cc engine. People always wanted this kind of setup but there has been no test mule that has been spotted with this setup. Also if Royal Enfield brings something on that engine they will have to consider it for the international market too. People have always wanted a bigger and more powerful Himalayan and with a more off-road setup, plus the 650cc engine, a scrambler from Royal Enfield would be amazing.
