  • Royal Enfield to introduce five new motorcycles featuring an all-new 450cc platform.
  • The Himalayan 450 could be the first to make public debut next year. 

That’s because the Chennai-based motorcycle company has been busy introducing a range of new bikes in the last couple of years.

However, Royal Enfield will soon grow its portfolio with five all-new 450cc motorcycles.

According to reports in India, the 450cc range is likely to include an adventure tourer alongside a more off-road capable machine, possibly called the Himalayan 450. Also in the pipeline are a 450 roadster, 450 scramblers and a 450 cafe racer.

Royal Enfield has been caught testing an adventure tourer over the last few months, with reports claiming that it could be the first among the five to make its global debut next year.

Meanwhile, the Himalayan 450 will feature a single-piece flat seat, higher ground clearance and a longer travel suspension to boost the bike’s off-road ability.

Secondly, the roadster is a street-biased motorcycle, thus offering a lower seat height, sportier riding ergonomics and sharper bodywork.

The 450 scramblers and 450 cafe racer are similar to the roadster, offering slightly differing packages, including wired-spoke wheels, lower set clip-on handlebars, shorter fenders and a front beak.

In addition, all five models will boast LED lighting, including modern instrumentation. 

After its global introduction in March 2022, local distributor Didi Group has officially launched the Royal Enfield Scram 411 for the Malaysian market. 

  • New Royal Enfield Scram 411 is a stripped-down Himalayan poised for the urban scrambler.
  • Features the same 411cc single SOCH engine as the off-road capable Himalayan 411.

Dubbed as an ‘urban scrambler’, it’s essentially the brand’s Himalayan adventure bike that’s been stripped down and given a proper modern retro styling twist.

Whilst the Scram 411’s base chassis remains unchanged from the Himalayan, it does employ identical 41mm front forks tweaked with slightly less travel – 190mm down from 200mm. The rear monoshock’s 180mm travel figure remains unchanged though.

That, along with the adoption of 21-inch (front) and 19-inch (rear) wheels ought to see the Royal Enfield Scram 411 boast slightly better on-road manners compared to the Himalayan ADV it underpins.

Also unchanged is the Himalayan’s powertrain package employed by the Royal Enfield Scram 411. You get the same air-cooled 411cc single with 24.3bhp @ 6,500rpm and 32NM @ 4,000RPM in this urban retro redux of said ADV machine.


Other major changes from the Himalayan obviously lay in the overall styling. The Scram 411 trade’s away the Himalayan’s fairing and high mudguard for a stripped down look with a small bit of bodywork to covering the instrument dial’s back.

There’s also a new single-piece seat that Royal Enfield says will offer enhanced comfort for long riding stints allowed by the sizeable 12.5-litre tank present, not forgetting the brand’s Tripper navigation unit brimmed as standard a feature too.

 Despite the Scram 411 retaining a similar silhouette of the Himalayan, the motorcycle missed out on the tall windscreen, handguards, raised front fender and dedicated rear and front luggage racks.

Other fundamental changes include a 19-inch front wheel in place of the off-road friendly 21-inch on the Himalayan.

While the Scram 411 is closer to the ground at 200mm – 220mm on the Himalayan, it features spoke-wheels and a dual-purpose tyre.

Other significant features include cast metal headlamp cowl, offset speedometer, urban badge plate with Royal Enfield branding and single-piece saddle.

Nevertheless, the Scram 411 continue to run on the same 411cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that generates a humble 24.3hp @ 6,500rpm and 32Nm @ 4000-4,500rpm. Power is delivered to the rear wheel via a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox.

Other features include:

  • telescopic front forks

  • 240mm rear disc
  • dual-channel ABS

Two Royal Enfield Himalayan managed to overcome harsh weather and terrain to successfully capture the South Pole.

Ridden by Santhosh Vijay Kumar and Dean Coxson, the two begin their journey onboard two modified Himalayan from Novolazarevskaya research stations in Antarctica.

The pair took nine days to cover a distance of 3,200 kilometres and faced bone-chilling temperatures ranging from -30 degrees to -25 degrees Celsius before arriving at the location.

Other than facing a wind speed of 60km/h, the pair had to change their course more than once but still managed to reach the South Pole on December 16 together with a support crew.

In order to make the ride possible, the Himalayan’s underwent some modifications. The bike was also ridden on a compacted snow track from Ross Ice Shelf to the South Pole in an effort to reduce drag and limit emission.

Currently, the two Himalayan are still in Antarctica.

Royal Enfield Himalayan sememangnya antara model paling popular di India dan beberapa negara lain ekoran didatangkan dengan harga mampu milik di samping sesuai digunakan untuk apa jua keadaan.

Bukan itu sahaja, enjin satu silinder 411cc yang menghasilkan 24.3hp itu cukup popular dikalangan penunggang baharu.

Bagaimanapun, baru-baru ini, media di India melaporkan Himalayan bakal disuntik dengan enjin parallel-twin 650cc yang diambil dari model The Twin, Interceptor dan Continental GT.

Menurut laporan BikeWale, projek pembangunan motosikal baharu ini telah pun bermula di kilang RE di Chennai.

Menariknya, projek ini sebelum ini tidak pernah dirancangkan namun langkah tersebut diambil setelah RE mengorak visi dan objektif baharu memasuki 2021.

Difahamkan, Himalayan 650 ini akan tampil dengan dua varian berlainan, model ADV dan sports-tourer. – BikeWale
