At the height of the World War II, Royal Enfield made a resilient 125cc motorcycle, designed to be deployed behind enemy lines via parachutes. Fondly recalled as ‘The Flying Flea’, they became quick mobility platform for the forward units of the Airborne Pegasus Regiment. The new Classic 500 Pegasus edition is a tribute to that great story from the war never told.
