New Scrambler Coming? TVS Patents SCR in India

TVS SCR has been patented in India. There are ample hints that the maker is considering taking it to production…

It appears to be a season of Scramblers. We have recently ridden the Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 and was impressed with what it had to offer. It joined the existing log of Triumph Scrambler 400X, Royal Enfield Scram and Yezdi Scrambler.

It appears that TVS identifies this as a new motorcycle growth segment and appears to be making its own Scrambler. The Chennai based maker already has the platform ready as it showcased the SCR concept back at the 2023 MotoSoul.

Among a pack of four custom models, the SCR (which is a short for Special Custom Ronin) was the most talked about and there were hints that the company is considering taking it to production. And in a latest, we see that the SCR has been patented in India. This is a big hint that TVS is advancing towards the introduction of the SCR in the market.

The SCR concept had dual barrel upswept exhaust along with button type tyres for traction in loose gravel. It had a massive ground clearance, raised mudguard and a completely new seat. The headlamp design and the seat layout was also very different from the Ronin – the motorcycle on which the SCR will be based.

As I said in my earlier article, I overheard that Ronin SCR also had inputs from people who worked on the Yezdi Scrambler. The engine could be the same 225cc, single cylinder motor, which is relaxed and offers plenty of low and mid range – a trait required for slow speed off-road riding.

Both the Classic lifestyle motorcycle makers – Royal Enfield and Classic Legends are doing Scramblers and since TVS is targeting this very space with this new venture – the SCR fits the portfolio perfectly and can sit somewhere between that Rs 1.50 to Rs 2 Lakh window.

With this, we await to hear more from the maker regarding this development and when can we expect something more concrete regarding its official launch. Till then you can watch this quick video of the SCR from the event…
