2018 Royal Enfield
£4999 + OTR
At the height of the Second World War, Royal Enfield made a resilient 125cc motorcycle designed to be deployed behind enemy lines via parachutes and onboard the Horsa Glider to provide communications support along with acting as a quick mobility platform for the forward units of the Airborne Pegasus Regiment across key operations such as D-Day and Market Garden. Officially designated the RE/WD 125 it was more fondly recalled as 'The Flying Flea' by the men who rode it.
This commemorative model is being manufactured in a limited production run of 1000. 250 of these motorcycles will be sold in the UK.
Here is a chance for you to be a part of the legacy.
Adorned with the esteemed 'Pegasus' insignia, the Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus Edition bears testament to the legendary Flying Flea and stories of the men who rode it.
This insignia shows the silhouetted image of Bellerophon the warrior, mounted on the winged Pegasus, symbolising a warrior arriving on wings, a befitting representation of the actions of the paratroopers.
A period perfect pair of easy to mount & remove canvas saddle-bags add the detail of utility to this tribute.
Each of the 1000 individual Classic 500 Pegasus Edition motorcycles carries a unique serial number stenciled on the fuel tank, reminiscent of the War Department motorcycles that served during World War II.
