Royal Enfield Scram 440 will be equipped with a 440 cc air- and oil-cooled engine derived from the 411 cc engine found in the existing Himalayan 411 and Scram 411
Royal Enfield appears to be working on three scrambler motorcycles across different segments for the Indian and global markets. Previously, the 450 cc version of the Scrambler and the 650 cc flagship Scrambler were spotted testing and they are expected to make their world debut in the near future. They will reportedly be preceded by an entry-level scrambler.
The homegrown manufacturer already sells the Scram 411 and is nothing but the stripped-down version of the existing Himalayan 411. According to a recent report that emerged on the internet, Royal Enfield has a 440 cc scrambler-styled motorcycle on the horizon. While the upcoming 450 cc range has been highly awaited, a new 440 cc range will also make sense.
It could be harbingered by a scrambler in a more affordable manner. The report went on to note that the upcoming model will be christened the Scram 440 and it will be equipped with an air- and oil-cooled 440 cc engine, which will be derived from the 411 cc engine. Thus, we can expect the power and torque figures to be lower than that of the 450 cc liquid-cooled engine.
The forthcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 will become the first offering in the 450 cc series and it will likely produce a maximum power output of around 40 bhp. For reference, the Himalayan 411 and Scram 411 make 24.3 hp at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 to 4,500 rpm. The Scram 440 could replace the Scram 411 but no official details are divulged yet.
It will be introduced within the next one year in local and international markets and we can expect it to be priced highly competitively. RE has a long list of motorcycles waiting to be launched as the Himalayan 450, new generation Bullet 350, single-seater Classic 350 bobber, production version of the SG 650 concept and roadster 450 have already been caught testing.
The list goes on and on as a classic-themed 650, scrambler 650, faired 650 based on the Continental GT and an all-new 750 cc bobber under development. RE is also putting a lot of effort into bringing up a range of new electric motorcycles for the future.
