Royal Enfield Have Brought Back a Classic to Honour British WWII Forces
During World War II, Royal Enfield designed and built a 125cc motorcycle to be deployed via glider behind enemy lines with the British Pegasus airborne unit. Called the Flying Flea, the little bike served in several important operations in Europe, including D-Day. In honor of the Airborne Pegasus Regiment and the Flying Flea, Royal Enfield is making 1,000 Classic 500 Pegasus Edition motorcycles. Powered by a 499cc parallel-twin motor, the Pegasus Edition features WWII-inspired canvas saddle bags and Pegasus Regiment insignia and comes in either Service Brown or Olive Drab Green. Deliveries are set to begin later in 2018.
