Royal Enfield Scram 411, Track Test

I can already hear your thoughts as you turn over to this page and glance at the Scram 411 and ask – what is a Scram doing on the track? Does it even belong there? I mean I had the same questions despite having ridden it for months as a long-term bike, and let me tell you that while you and I may not agree at first, the results do not lie. It lapped our testing circuit in 01.24.2, which is faster than the Royal Enfield Hunter, the Ola S1 Pro, and even the 650cc inline-twin Moto Morini X-Cape 650. It all comes down to the Scram 411 having tall handlebars, which allows you to muscle it into corners. Once leaned over, it’s surprisingly stable, which inspires confidence, and its tyres hold their own as well. Lastly, the tall gearing of the Scram, more than that of other bikes in its vicinity, means that through the sharp bends of our proving ground, the Scram was able to flow better because you aren’t shifting continuously.

Honestly, on the road, you will never push the Scram that hard, which is fine. The Scram 411 has always been a jack of all trades, and a good one at that. The only problem I faced on it was while cruising above 90km/h on the highway – the engine starts to feel a little strained, and you really don’t feel like pushing any further. The biggest problem with the Scram 411, though, is that if you ride it hard all the time, things start to fall off. Case-in-point was the speedometer of the bike, which was pretty much hanging off by the time we sent the motorcycle back. But ultimately, for the price, the Scram 411 is a hell of a package, and if it means that I need to do a quick check of the nut and bolts on my motorcycle every fortnight, well, then so be it.
