Complete details of Classic Desert Storm Motorcycle

Launched in India in 2010.

The “sand” paint scheme of the Desert Storm is its highlight which brings back the war era once again but on road. The machine is under the Classic range only. But, when the bike meets classiness and sportiness along with its hard look, that becomes something special and something to stare at. It's the same 499cc, Single Cylinder, 4 stroke,Twinspark powerhouse, that powers the all 500 models of RE, runs the Desert Storm.

First Impression Review

The Desert Storm is the new addition to the Royal Enfiled Classic with new paint jobs. The Desert Storm model is limited to only Classic 500. The Desert Storm favours the new customers who look for a unique Royale Enfiled bullet. Apart from the cosmetic changes, the company hasn't made any mechanical changes.
