Royal Enfield Scramblers: Taking Adventure Riding to New Heights

Multiple sightings of Royal Enfield 450cc and 650cc scrambler motorcycles in testing in India have given us a sneak peek at what to expect from these upcoming vehicles.

Royal Enfield’s: The highly anticipated Roadster 450 (also known as the Scram 450) and Scrambler 650 (also known as the Interceptor Bear 650; name confirmed) from Royal Enfield have been seen on camera several times while undergoing road testing. Showcasing Royal Enfield’s dedication to variety, these bikes provide riders with a delightful blend of contemporary performance and classic styling.

A road-going version of the Himalayan 450 will be the Roadster/Scram 450, a classic with a contemporary twist. It has a strong fuel tank, a smooth rounded headlight, and a Himalayan-inspired tail that give it a sporty vibe. However, because of its low front end, it feels much smaller than its ADV equivalent. Completely LED lighting and a possible circular TFT display are examples of contemporary features. 

Telescopic forks, a monoshock with preload adjustment, and 17-inch alloy wheels are also included. Regarding the drivetrain, it is anticipated to utilise the powerful 40 Nm, 39.5 bhp, liquid-cooled single-cylinder Sherpa engine found in the Himalayan 450. This will guarantee that the 450 Roadster/Scram competes fiercely with vehicles such as the Honda CB350 RS and Yezdi Scrambler.

The adored Interceptor 650 serves as inspiration for the Scrambler 650 (also known as the Interceptor Bear 650), which exudes a rugged, down-to-earth charm. The Scrambler 650 has an air of adventure thanks to its spoke wheels, one-piece seat, and round LED headlight. The taller handlebar, round taillight and thicker seat padding would be the biggest changes.

Riding on both paved and unpaved roads, the dependable 648cc parallel-twin engine producing 47 bhp and 52 Nm will power the Scrambler 650 with stunning performance. A smooth riding experience should be provided by the USD fork up front and the twin non-gas charged shocks at the rear. The Benelli Leoncino 500 and the upcoming Moto Morini Seiemmezzo 650 are two bikes that this motorcycle will compete against.

Although their release date has not yet been confirmed, numerous reports of near-production test models imply that they will both soon go on sale. According to rumours, the Scram 450 will probably cost around Rs. 2.4 lakh, while the Scrambler 650 will probably cost about Rs. 4 lakh (all ex-showroom prices). We anticipate more information to surface soon, so check back for updates!
