A few weeks back, 15 NSG commandos took a 8,000 kilometer road trip across 13 Indian states to spread awareness against terrorism. These bikes have now been put on sale by Royal Enfield to support ‘Prerna’, a non-profit organization that helps educate underprivileged children. All 15 motorcycles used by NSG black cats are on sale for Rs. 1.9 lakhs each. Those interested to purchase the same may log on to Royal Enfield’s micro-sale site. You need to register at this site, and the official sale will commence from 13th of December, 2017.
Each of these bikes have been serviced by Royal Enfield, and will be backed by an official factory warranty. These bikes will carry an etched metal plate that commemorates the spirit of the Black Cats and their 8000 Km expedition. The Stealth Black 500 is the latest motorcycle that Royal Enfield has launched for the Indian market. The bike is powered by the 500cc, unit construction four stroke engine. The air cooled, long stroke engine produces 27.2 Bhp-41.3 Nm, and is known for its immense torque at low rpms.
The engine is fuel injected and uses hydraulic tappets. It is paired with a 5 speed manual gearbox. There are disc brakes on both wheels of the bike. The whole motorcycle is finished in matte-black colour, giving it a very unique look among the Classic range of Royal Enfields. The regular, on-road price of the Classic 500 Stealth Black is around Rs. 2.05 lakhs. The Stealth Black 500 sits right at the top of the Royal Enfield Classic range of retro-styled motorcycles sold in the Indian market.
Royal Enfield will launch two new bikes next year – the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. Both of them will feature a newly developed, parallel twin cylinder engine. These bikes will be the most powerful, and costliest Royal Enfields sold in India. They will also feature ABS, slipper clutches, 6 speed gearboxes, fuel injection and air-oil cooling. Expect prices between 3 to 4 lakhs for both these bikes.
