The Pioneers

The First Five : The Classic in its 500cc avatar was first showcased at intermot in Germany in 2008 and subsequently went on a sale in the UK and Europe after that . This motorcycle globally debuted with three colour variants namely Teal Green (the flagship colour), Royal Maroon and Black. Extensive care was taken in developing the colour shades, so that this strongly resonated with the postwar era colour schemes.

The Desert Storm ignited the pride and excitement of the battlefield in the hearts of its riders. It drew inspiration from the World War-II era with its bold sand and colour scheme. The matte finish paint and prominent monogram on the tank along with the thigh pads portrayed the grit and glory of the seasoned veteran and appealed to a section of riders who were drawn to the rugged and raw appeal.
