    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ?

    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ? Find out !!

    just a few days back Royal Enfield had announced Classic 500 Chrome for its flagship model in India. Now they have plans to launch another colour – the Desert Storm.

    we spoke to RE dealers in and around Delhi and found out that the bike could be launched as

    soon as next month.

    There will not be any changes in the
    engine department, but minor cosmetic changes here and there, gives the Desert Storm its new identity. The Desert Storm is the next best thing as the Olive Green is a colour reserved only for the Indian Army.

    It isn’t clear yet if the new ‘Desert Storm’ colour
    will be available on the Classic 350 as well, but we hope it does.
