Finally, the Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus, the limited-edition which was announced in May will be on sale from July 25 at 4pm. The model has been inspired from the Royal Enfield WD/RE 125 (popularly known as the Flying Flea), used by British paratroopers in World War II.
Earlier, it was announced that it will go on sale from July 10. However, due to the demand for the model that the website crashed and Royal Enfield had no option except to postpone the sale.
In India, only 250 units of Classic 500 Pegasus will be available. Each unit will price at Rs 2.40 lakh (on-road, Delhi). Internationally, it will be available in two shades namely, Olive Drab Green and Service Brown, for India, only the latter will be on sale as the green is reserved for the Armed forces.
The difference in limited edition to that of standard bike includes a Pegasus logo on the fuel tank and the canvas panniers. In addition, a leather strap with brass buckles on the battery box, brown handlebar grips, and a tank badge similar to the one used on the Flying Flea.
One of the main highlight will be the unique serial number stencilled on the tank. It will follow the same font as that on the Flying Flea
