Royal Enfield has registered a new name – Royal Enfield Scram in India. It looks like RE is planning to come up with a new bike, which could be a 650cc scrambler or 350cc J-platform model.
Royal Enfield is investing heavily in these two platforms. So, we can expect the upcoming motorcycle to be based on either of these two. At the moment, we only know its name and no other details; we can suspect it to be the off-road focused machine.
It is speculated that the Royal Enfield Scram could be powered by the company’s 648cc parallel-twin engine that generates 47bhp and 52Nm of peak torque and mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
If it’s a 650cc Royal Enfield scrambler, we can think of it as a soft-roader and not any hardcore adventure motorcycle. It might use the engine from the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650.
While there are all signs of Royal Enfield working towards a 650cc scrambler, we cannot ignore our other speculation of a 350cc J-platform scrambler in the making. No matter what the brand makes, we can be sure that some high-performing bike is on its way.
RE has stated its plans of launching a new bike every quarter for the next seven years. This comes around 28 new motorcycles for RE fans. In April 2021, the company has also filed a trademark for the name ‘Shotgun’ in India. This could be another bike from the aforementioned RE 650 cc duo.
