In the month of July, 2018 Royal Enfield launched its Pegasus 500 motorcycle. This bike was one of the most awaited ones but its stock were limited to 750 units globally and 250 units for India. The stock of the limited edition Pegasus 500 was cleared just within three minutes when the booking lines were opened. However many customers were highly disappointed as they could not book the bike. In order to meet the demands of the people, Royal Enfield launched another bike named Classic 350 Signals. The Classic 350 Signals borrowed the styling clues from the Pegasus 500 and was introduced sporting the unique number on the fuel tank.
Royal Enfield could therefore find the solution for the disappointed customers. However, now Royal Enfield takes into consideration their existing owners of the Dessert Storm who want to get the Pegasus 500 or the Classic 350 Signal. For such customers, Royal Enfield has made an exclusive provision in which their Royal Enfield Dessert Storm motorcycles will be transformed in to the Pegasus 500 by implementing the Pegasus 500 sticker. Besides that the tank pads were removed using a blade, the surface was polished and the stencilled unique number was fitted on the fuel tank to impart the bike the look of the Pegasus 500. This process is quite simple and will cost the customers Rs 100 for the entire sticker job. However, if the customer wishes to duplicate the black paint scheme of the Pegasus 500 on their Enfield bikes needs to pay about Rs 1000. Therefore the entire Pegasus 500 like look can be offered to the customers at Rs 1000 only.
The another advantage for the existing Royal Enfield customers is that they will get ABS along with the Pegasus 500 like look. Royal Enfield is offering ABS over its entire range and all its motorcycles will be offered with ABS by end of this year. The Pegasus 500 and the Classic 350 are similar mechanically. Both the bikes are powered by an air cooled, single cylinder, long stroke 499 cc engine, which churns out a power of 27.2 bhp and a peak torque of 41.3 Nm. The engine comes paired to a five speed manual gearbox.
