Royal Enfield Pegasus
ROYAL ENFIELD HAVE LAUNCHED A LIMITEDedition bike, called the Classic 500 Pegasus, priced at Rs 2.40 lakh (OTR, Delhi). Royal Enfield propose to produce only 1,000 units of the Pegasus, of which only 250 will be available for sale in India.
The new bike is the outcome of a collaboration between Royal Enfield and the British army’s Parachute Regiment.
This Classic 500 comes bearing the Parachute Regiment’s official insignia, a maroon and blue Pegasus emblem, and a stencilled serial number. Additionally, they also have canvas panniers, brown handlebar grips, and a leather strap with brass buckles across the air-filter. A few components don the black colour and these include the silencers, rims, kick-starter, pedals, and headlight bezel. These elements have successfully given the motorcycle the visual essence of a war machine. The motorcycle remains unchanged mechanically. Its 499-cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine continues to produce 27.5 PS at 5,250 rpm and a peak torque of 41.3 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The Classic 500 Pegasus will be available exclusively on Royal Enfield’s website from 10 July.
