Royal Enfield recently filed a trademark for the name ‘Royal Enfield Scram’ which is likely to be launched in the Nepalese market by the end of this year. The bike maker recently filed a patent for a new bike called Scram. After a retro car (Interceptor 650) and a Cafe racer (Continental GT 650), the next logical step would be to add a Scrambler to the lineup. So, the upcoming Scrambler will most likely be based on the off-road-focused machine.
According to the recent report, the bike could get the same all-new counterbalanced air-cooled fuel-injected engine as the Meteor 350. The company could give a few touches to the Scram to make the bike more off-road friendly, including serrated pegs, a high-mounted exhaust, and fenders. The 349 cc single-cylinder engine is optimized on the Meteor 350 with most torque available from under 2000 rpm, which would be beneficial to a scrambler.
On the other hand, there’s also a possibility that the bike could be based on the 650 platforms. If Royal Enfield opts to go with the twin-cylinder engine, we expect its price to go over the Interceptor 650. If Royal Enfield makes a 650cc scrambler, it should be similar to Triumph’s approach with the Street Twin and the Street Scrambler. So, while all signs point towards a 650cc scrambler being in the works and it seems like the more probable scenario.
Royal Enfield filed the trademark for the name Scram just last week. Once launched in Nepal, it would arrive in around NRs 8 to 10 lakhs territory and hence, would be a great option for people on the lookout for such bikes. Whatever the brand throws up, you can be sure that interesting times lie ahead for all Royal Enfield fans across the country. Needless to say, we are waiting eagerly for it.
