Royal Enfield has finally revealed the new booking dates for the Classic 500 Pegasus motorcycle, after the fiasco on 10th July, 2018. Royal Enfield will start the sales of the limited edition Classic 500 Pegasus on 25th July, 2018 at 4 PM on its website. Earlier, the online booking website of the Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus crashed minutes after the bookings were officially opened at 2 PM on 10th July 2018.

Soon after the bookings were opened, website crashed, reflecting an error message. The official Twitter handle of Royal Enfield was bombarded with inquiries on the bookings, to which the company replied that the bookings will resume at 8.30 PM today – 10th July 2018.



However, the bookings were further deferred without any official date. On some angry tweets by fans, Royal Enfield replied – “The Royal Enfield website is currently experiencing technical downtime. We are working on getting this back up very soon. Thank You.”

This kind of technical difficulties arises when a large number of people visit a website and the server is not able to handle the traffic, which means it is safe to assume Pegasus has a lot of fan following. Another tweet by Royal Enfield read – “Due to the overwhelming response to the Pegasus online sale, we are facing unanticipated technical difficulties on our website. We’ll communicate the revised sale date shortly. Thank you for your continuous support.”

Royal Enfield earlier launched the WWII inspired limited edition Classic 500 Pegasus Edition India at Rs 2.4 lakh (ex-showroom). The new limited edition motorcycle is inspired by RE/WD 125 motorcycle, known as flying flea, which was produced at Westwood, UK during World War II.
