Check out our comprehensive spec-sheet comparison between the newly-launched Royal Enfield Scram 411 and Yezdi Scrambler
Royal Enfield has finally launched Scram 411 in the Indian market, and it sure has us excited! RE’s new scrambler shares its platform and powertrain with the Himalayan ADV, and there are plenty of commonalities between the two. Its biggest rivals in the Indian market are Honda CB350 RS and Yezdi Scrambler, both of which are brilliant motorcycles.
Here, we compare the new Royal Enfield Scram 411 with Yezdi Scrambler, to see which of the two is the better deal on paper.
Royal Enfield Scram 411 vs Yezdi Scrambler – Design
Similar to other Royal Enfield bikes, Scram 411 has a retro-inspired design, with a touch of sportiness and ruggedness. It gets a round headlamp with a tiny headlamp cowl, curvy fuel tank with tank extensions, scooped single-piece seat, sleek taillight, single-piece pillion grab handle, round rear-view mirrors, a bash plate, etc.
The riding posture on Scram 411 is upright and relaxed, with tall handlebars, a tall seat, and centre-set footpegs, However, compared to RE Himalayan, the seat is lower and the handlebar is closer to the rider, which makes the bike lighter and more flickable in comparison.
Yezdi Scrambler is also retro-inspired, but it looks much more modern in comparison to its Royal Enfield rival. It gets a round LED headlamp, along with a small round taillight and tiny round turn indicators. It also gets a beak-style front fender, rounded fuel tank, single-piece seat, dual-exhaust system, and a bash plate.
The seating posture is upright and comfy, thanks to the slightly tall handlebar and slightly forward-set footpegs. The seat is tall, but not too much, and the handling feels great. There are knee pads on the tank, which make it easier to hold the bike when jumping or sliding around.
