May 22, 2018, 01:31 PM IST

Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus motorcycle: Royal Enfield on Monday launched a new limited-edition model of its classic motorcycle. This limited edition model is inspired by the World War II bike used by British troops. The Classic 500 'Pegasus' is inspired by the legendary RE/WD Flying Flea 125 motorcycle, which was manufactured at Royal Enfield's underground facility in Westwood, UK, during the war. With only 1,000 units to be made available globally, only 190 Royal Enfield Classic 500 'Pegasus' bikes will be available in Britain. The online booking of the Pegasus will be open from July at a price tag of 4,999 pounds.


Each of the 1000 new Classic 500 Pegasus motorcycles comes with a maroon and blue Pegasus emblem, the official Parachute Regiment insignia on the fuel tank along with an individual stencilled serial number. 



These limited edition motorcycles will be painted in the wartime colours of Service Brown and Olive Drab Green, except in India, where only Service Brown will be available. 



The Pegasus motorcycles' markings are based on a genuine World War II Flying Flea used by the 250th (Airborne) Light Company, now in Royal Enfield's official collection at the company's UK Technology Centre. 


Each motorcycle will have authentic markings of military motorcycles, including brown handlebar grips, a leather strap with brass buckles across the air filter, blacked out silencers, rims, kickstart, pedals and headlight bezel to complete the period look.
