The Classic Desert Storm comes to you with a “sand” paint scheme reminiscent of the war era, a time when Royal Enfield motorcycles proved their capabilities and battle worthiness by impeccable service to soldiers in the harsh conditions of the desert. Donning a younger look with styling cues one would expect only from a genuine Royal Enfield: single cylinder air-cooled pushrod engine, 1950s style nacelle and toolboxes, traditional paint scheme and buffed engine components, this motorcycle is all set to bring you the pleasures of modern motorcycling while reflecting the aura of eternal classic styling.

This is a beauty, completely in love. Gives an adrenaline rush whenever i ride this. Only one improvement area is the rear brakes, bike seems slightly unstable at higher speeds. Overall amazing bike to own.
