Royal Enfield is one of the iconic brands in two wheeler industry and they focus on retro theme bikes. The company has long heritage and decided to introduce a new limited edition motorcycle based on popular RE/WD 125 Motorcycles which is known as Flying Flea. This bike is so special because it was used in second world II.
The bike was manufactured in an under ground factory and it was air-lifted then parachuted behind enemy lines. The company decided to make 1000 units of Pegasus limited edition model based on Classic 500 and allocated 250 units for Indian market.
The announcement of any new models or limited edition is very well received by hard core RE fans. The company tried to take a different approach with Pegasus edition as they decided to go online as bookings can be made through official website of Royal Enfield on July 10th at 2 P.M.
But the response from people was so high that RE website couldn’t handle the traffic, which lead to site going offline. They tried to do it second time but failed again and the company decided to postpond the booking. So we will have to wait little long to see the limited edition in flesh.
GP Motorcycles is a dealer of Royal Enfield in UK has posted live images of Pegasus Edition. Even though globally two colours are available, Royal Enfield offer only Service Brown for India and aesthetic changes does make the classic 500 looks more appealing and it comes with lots of accessories.
Royal Enfield is offering Pegasus limited edition with bespoke set of military style canvas panniers, Pegasus logo, brown handle bar and leather strap with brass buckles across the air-filter along with unique serial number of fuel tank. The Pegasus limited edition is priced at Rs. 2.40 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
