Royal Enfield Himalayan e Scram411 they share engine, chassis, chassis… But they have a different look, a slightly different riding position due to the two saddles and above all they have different front wheels: 19″ for Scram and 21″ per la Himalayan.
It seems like a small thing and yet by riding them together you understand that they are two completely different bikes. Scram is more responsive, the Himalayan is more adventurous and touristic.
They were my and my friend Filippo's travel companions during ours GRAND TOUR ALPI 2022 and they took us from Trieste to Nice (actually with departure and return to Milan ...) in a week making us have much more fun than their data sheet suggests.
Easy to drive, to buy and manage, they should not be declassified as simple motorcycles “low cost” for newbies, because they have their own philosophy and are very nice to use even if you are an expert. On the contrary ... They make you reconsider your parameters.
But the question that everyone asked me during this journey of 2.000 km was: in the end which one would you buy?
Well ... the answer is that I actually took one of the two home!
