Royal Enfield Scram 411 vs Yezdi Scrambler: What’s your pick?

Royal Enfield recently introduced the Scram 411 in India, with a starting price of Rs. 2.03 lakh (ex-showroom). The Scram is essentially a road-biased version of the Himalayan, but it borrows many characteristics from Royal Enfield’s adventure motorcycle to help it navigate difficult terrain. The Scram 411 is powered by the RE Himalayan engine, and the two bikes share the same suspension setup, with the exception of front wheel travel.

For those looking for a new bike that, while not an adventure bike, is suitable for our challenging road conditions and simplifies your daily commute, the RE Scram 411 is a solid choice. But is it better than Yezdi Scrambler, which was released last month in India? That’s what we’ll try to find out.

Royal Enfield Scram 411 vs Yezdi Scrambler: Practicality

The minimalist design of a scrambler motorcycle, as well as its ability to handle difficult terrain, are its main selling points. Both the Royal Enfield Scram 411 and the Yezdi Scrambler can handle bad roads in this context, thanks to their 200 mm ground clearance. The Yezdi Scrambler, on the other hand, will be a little more manageable due to its 182 kg kerb weight as opposed to the RE Scram’s 185 kg weight. However, shorter riders will find it easier to plant their feet on the ground on the Scram due to its 795 mm seat height as opposed to the Yezdi Scrambler’s 800 mm seat height.
RE Scram 411 Yezdi Scrambler
Ground clearance 200 mm 200 mm
Weight (kerb) 185 kg 182 kg
Seat height 795 mm 800 mm

These differences on paper do not seem very significant but we will have to test these bikes in the real-world to ascertain that.
