Scram 411 Coming To America

Ever since we enjoyed the opportunity to throttle around on Royal Enfield’s Himalayan a couple of years ago, we believed they had a winner in the diminutive but highly capable and supremely affordable ADV bike. Turns out we were right, as the Himi has been a runaway best seller for the legendary motorcycle brand the world over these past few years. So its not surprising the world’s oldest continually-in-production motorbike company would begin to offer variations on the venerable Himalayan platform, now evidenced in the sporty looking Scram 411 coming this fall.

Dual Sport and Adventure Motorcycles

A reader emailed us recently with the question, “What do you see as the major differences between dual sport bikes and adventure bikes?” We thought that to be a worthy inquiry, so we will share our observations here. The Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC.org) lumps both together in a category they call “dual-purpose” in regards to overall motorcycle sales, but are they really quite different motorbike types? Both are road-ready and dirt-worthy, so why not classify them together?

Royal Enfield Reveals The Scram 411

Royal Enfield pulled the wraps off a new motorcycle they’ve developed, called the Scram 411. A more street-oriented version of the widely popular Himalayan, the Scram 411 is being billed as an “ADV crossover” by the brand. In the vein of the scrambler genre many motorcycle manufacturers have been churning out in recent years (Ducati Scrambler 800, Triumph Scrambler 1200, etc.), and the long history of on/off road, high-piped scramblers of old (remember the old single thumper Honda scramblers of the 60s-70s?), Royal Enfield thought their Himalayan, with its 411 single-cylinder motor and Harris Performance chassis, would be the ideal platform for their own interpretation of the style. In their words, “the Scram 411 combines spirited agility on urban streets, with competent rough-roading capabilities. Focused and purposeful changes in the riding geometry and ergonomics make it ideal for in-city riding, as well as unpredictable, challenging trails off the urban grid.”

Circling the Globe on a Royal Enfield Himalayan

Jack Groves had a dream- to ride around the world on a motorcycle, and become the youngest human to ever achieve it. With little more than a British A2 license and limited experience with a small Herald Brat 125 motorbike, Jack read about the 8-month, 32,000 mile motorcycle circumnavigation of fellow Brit Kane Avellano in 2017, at that time the world’s youngest, and decided to make an attempt at breaking his record.

Royal Enfield Reaches The South Pole

As we first reported back in October, Royal Enfield set out to achieve what no other motorcycle brand in history has done- ride a pair of motorcycles to the South Pole. On December 16, they did just that. Two Royal Enfield Himalayans were ridden to the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, the geographic South Pole. Riders Santosh Vijay Kumar and Dean Coxson of RE set out on November 26 from Novo, Antarctica after spending a few days there acclimating to the harsh, inhospitable conditions of the frozen continent, then transported their modified Himalayans 1988 miles to the Ross Ice Shelf where their attempt would officially begin.
