Royal Enfield has sold out all 250 units of its recently launched limited edition Classic 500 Pegasus motorcycle in under three minutes – 178 seconds to be precise. All units of the Royal Enfield Classic Pegasus 500 sold were available on a first-come-first-serve basis and the sale was carried out through a dedicated webpage for the Pegasus 500.

Royal Enfield’s Classic Pegasus 500 is inspired by the company’s World War motorcycle – the Flying Flea. Only 1,000 units of the Pegasus Classic 500 will be sold globally. As far as India is concerned, only 250 units were allotted, giving the motorcycle an aspirational value.
