About Royal Enfield Classic Desert Storm
The Royal Enfield Classic Desert Storm features a unique “sand” paint scheme reminiscent of the First and the Second World War era - a time when Royal Enfield motorcycles were among the common form of utilities for soldiers in the desert.
Since it’s based on a standard Classic 500, the Classic Desert Storm uses the same 500cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke engine producing 27.2bhp of power at 5,250rpm and 41.3Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Up front, the headlamp is traditionally designed but gets a powerful halogen bulb to provide good illumination. The shapely tank is finished in post war era graphics and thigh pads creating a vintage look. At the back, the Desert Storm features a short silencer for that 1950’s look. Royal Enfield, however, says it is available as an optional accessory and for off-road use only.
The Classic Desert Storm rides on 19-inch wheels at the front and 18-inch wheels at the back. The 500cc engine comes with Keihin electronic fuel injection and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
