The Royal Enfield Desert Storm is another variant of the Classic 500. The Desert Storm as the name suggests is a bike that ignites pride and excitement of the battlefield in the hearts of the rider. The Desert Storm has been described as a rebel with a penchant of looking different among a crowd of similar bikes.
The new leisure bike’s design has been inspired by the erstwhile Second World War army bikes. The bold and macho look redefines class. Its pale color scheme along with the matt paint job is in a way a camouflage. The body colored thigh pads also add to the look.
The Desert Storm’s technical specifications are similar to that of the Classic 500 and the Classic Chrome 500. It is also powered by the 500cc Twin Spark unit construction engine that develops 27.2bhp.
Talking about the new bikes, Dr Venkatesh Padmanabhan, CEO, Royal Enfield said, “When we launched the Classic in November 2009, we had not imagined in our wildest dreams that this new product would occupy almost 40% of our total sales within a year of its launch. During this time we have feverishly engaged ourselves in burnishing this gem. The fruits of this labor are now manifested in the Classic Chrome and Desert Storm.”
Classic Chrome and Desert Storm, being limited edition products, would be available at select brand stores and dealerships across the country.
