Royal Enfield to launch Classic 500cc Desert Storm

Chennai based legendary Indian motorcycle manufacturer, Royal Enfield has confirmed that they will be launching  Desert Storm variant of their Classic 500 motorcycle in India by next month. There will not be any changes in the engine department, but minor cosmetic changes here and there, gives the Desert Storm its new identity. Thanks to the sandy-beige color of the motorcycle, Royal Enfield has christened their new motorcycle as Desert Storm

Just like every other Royal Enfield motorcycle, Desert Storm too has the classic feel. Expect Desert Storm to be available for an ex showroom price of Rs 1.5 lakhs approximately. On the color, we are not sure if Royal Enfield would be launching any more colors in the Desert Storm series. We are also not sure whether RE will launch a 350cc variant of the Desert Storm.
The 500cc engine of Desert Storm will generate 27.2 bhp and 41.3 Nm torque. Just like the new age motorcycles, Desert Storm too will feature a 5 speed gearbox which will be controlled by rider's left foot.
