Royal En­field Pe­ga­sus

Bike India - - IGNITION -

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.
