A war-inspired model is quite a rare offering to by for Indian riders these the 500cc power-packed machine pump pride and envy into the hearts current RE owners.

The birth of the Royal Classic models was in November and they stormed the market, a niche especially for those motorcycle lovers with an for the fine mix of classic design and mechanicals. Now, true to its the new RE motorcycle rakes up a storm its tweaked features and pulsating

For someone who has been riding the RE Bullet for more than six the Classic experience a few years ago was the of a maiden trip to New Zealand and now the Storm gives the adrenaline of a bungee jump in Queenstown. from being a unique in terms of the skin being by desert sand, the battle-ready Desert Storm is an upgraded of the iconic RE Classic, which be your perfect ride to office and also hold its own on terrain to keep entertained on off days.

War inspired

The Bullet has inspired of Indians and expats to attempt The brand’s macho, rugged and its association with the armed are legendary. Many owners yours truly have had a of enduring an exasperating wait for an matte green paint job for RE bikes.

I remember finally up after my own attempts at getting a painter to deliver the results I bore bitter fruit. The for an apt font and accessories to get the so-called ‘with pride of combat’ to the ire back then.

So, it is an impressive by the designers at the Royal Enfield in Tiruvottiyur, near Chennai to thought of a model inspired by war – a with a lot of relevance for this The matte-finish sand colour job, the conventional stickers and pads on the tank and the spring seats identical to the older provides the epic touch to the new

The sense of pride in riding a war model is something many may but the looks and thump of the Classic Storm will silence Having rolled out the Battle version as well, RE can look at some military-inspired merchandise to the ride for fans like me. And variants of the saddle seat quench the thirst for a much look on the new machine.


The Desert Storm is based on the platform as the RE Classic and is also with the same 500cc Spark unit construction The long … mill, is powered by a Japanese-made Keihin Fuel Injection (EFI) can churn out a good 27.2 bhp of at 5,250 rpm and 41.3 Nm of peak at 4,000 rpm.

The new Desert Storm will much more approachable for new buyers coming into the RE The classic feel of a bullet its addictive, leisurely performance is but with the loads of torque the Desert Storm can also spool up and spring forward the rider demands it.

Built the crankcase, is the five-speed constant gearbox which has already in the news for improving the performance in the 500. The smooth shifts it affords and the fact that it complements the new engine mapping for the Storm won me over all over

For those deceived by the retro of this motorcycle, the fact it clocks speeds of 100 kmph to 120 with ease, making it of challenging any latest motorcycle of its out there on the road for a ‘drag’, can as a shocker.

The buffed, shiny engine, the nacelle and toolbox, and the swept short silencer (which is an fitment) are all extremely eye-catchy in the engine area.

These and the subtle matt paint had many onlookers drooling my test bike. Opening up the and letting the sonorous thump of the wake up the neighbourhood invoked more envious stares.

and handling

There has always a certain charm to the Bullet’s rigidity. I am sure many would have loved of the previous RE bikes’ whimsical manners and their relatively parts. While the new Classics to be put together with as much their glorious uncertainty is now of history.

New electricals, switchgear, self-start, combined engine and parts, EFI and even more components like the new front make the new Classic Desert as reliable and refined as any in the segment.

The new fork suspensions have modified compared to the older model to improve rigidity and more refined handling. The is that the Desert Storm offers much better comfort and enhanced braking. is no feeling of pitchy or late brake performance.

Minor adjustments to the rake and of the front suspension provide handling especially on bumpy

Coming to the key element of the ride, the Storm is clearly the upgraded of the older classic bearing the saddle seats and Bullet will love it. Zipping a traffic bottleneck in the city has never easy with a big but the Classic variants manage to do that. The gearshifts are smooth, false neutrals being non-existent.

The new Storm takes the of riding a muscular RE to a new high. And the part is that it manages to tech with the flavour of the of yore. The famous Tiger’s eye now features a Halogen bulb, the unit construction engine now has fuel injection and the familiar with Classic English now has a EFI warning lamp integrated it.
