PEGASUS SPECIAL EDITION. UNIQUE NUMBERED EDITION ONLY 1,000 PRODUCED WORLDWIDE AND ONLY 100 SHIPPED TO THE U.S.A., AND ONLY 20 ARE MILITARY BROWN
During WWII the need arose for a motorcycle capable of being dropped or parachuted from gliders or airplanes and this is where the Royal Enfield “Flying flea” was born from. The British War department was so impressed with the capabilities of this machine that they immediately put in an order for 4,000. The name “Flying flea” was given due to the size, lightness and ability to be dropped from an airplane. Today in honor of this motorcycle and the functions it held Royal Enfield has created a modern reproduction of the “Flying Flea” known to us as the “Pegasus”.
