While Royal Enfield has brought in the New scram to probably take the place of the Himalayan, would the bike really be able to take the place of the first ever adventure tourer form the Royal Enfield clan. Well to answer the question Bulu Ptnaik YouTuber Bike reviewer took his bike up several twisty routes and he had to say this.
Bulu really liked the look as well as the general feel of the bike he said that while the bike is really similar to the Himalayan, it does offer less amenities. He firstly talked about how the size of the front wheel has been reduced to 19-Inches against the Himalayan’s 21-inches, which although according to him does’nt cause much of a problem.
Then he also spoke about how in the old Himalayan you could switch off the abs to tackle the Rockies , while in the scram that isn’t an option anymore, while the general public wont notice such changes trail riders. The YouTuber also talked about how the bike delivers its peak torque in low rpm ranges and when you stretch it on the highways the bike has nothing to offer other than severe vibrations.
Several amenities taken away
The rider also talked about how the central stand that has been removed by the manufacturer from the scram was useful while trying to maintain and mend the bike on the road , although its removal helps in difficult off roading a quality Royal Enfield strives for.
The YouTuber also like the instrument console of the bike and called it minimalistic and fun He also talked about how if you really want to switch off the ABS on the scram you cannot take off the fuse as it would, corrupt the speed sensor as well and you would loose the speed reading. The rider was also gave a sharp critique to why the Royal Enfield removed the rpm meter. the rider considered the Himalayan a better bike where you were getting a better list of equipment’s for the price.
Royal Enfield according to their presentation of the product has paced the bike for road use as well as mild off-roading , if you have daily commutes to commit to and , want to have fun on the weekends while touring and riding this might e the best bike for you.
