Gone in 178 seconds. No, we are not referring to any Hollywood movie; that’s the amount of time it took Royal Enfield to sell 250 units of the Pegasus through their online portal. 1000 units were produced and only 250 units were brought to India.

To give you a gist about this limited-edition motorcycle, Royal Enfield used to supply its bikes to the British Army and the Pegasus is inspired by the RE/WD Flying Flea 125 which was used at the time.

The mechanicals remain the same as the standard Classic 500. The air-cooled, single-cylinder, 500cc motor produces 27.2bhp and 41.3Nm of torque, and is mated to a five-speed gearbox. A telescopic fork at the front and a five-step adjustable preload at the rear manage suspension duties. Internationally, the Pegasus is available with two paint scheme – Service Brown and Olive Drab Green – and for Indian customers, it will be available with the Service Brown paint scheme.

To give it a military-like façade, Royal Enfield has equipped the Pegasus with military-style panniers and a blacked-out theme on the silencers, rims, kickstarter and headlight.
