Royal Enfield has announced a unique sale, of its limited edition Stealth Black Classic 500 motorcycles, and has called it a 'Tribute to the Bravehearts'. What makes this sale unique is that the motorcycles were used in the National Security Guards’ Motorcycle Expedition ‘Fight Against Terror’ ride in September 2017. The sale will be online and will kick off on 13 December on Royal Enfield's Bravehearts' portal. Interested buyers can register themselves on this portal and express their interest starting 8 December 2017. What makes owning these special motorcycles even better is the fact that the entire proceeds from the sale of these 15 motorcycles will go to Prerna, a not-for-profit initiative supported by the NSG for differently-abled children. These motorcycles will be sold at a price of Rs 1,90,000. The sale will go live on 13 December 2017 on ‘first-come-first-serve’ basis.
Royal Enfield Stealth Black Classic 500 motorcycles were recently launched this year and were a part of NSG's 40-day motorcycle expedition, aimed at spreading awareness about fighting terrorism and serving the nation. Customers who get their hands on these motorcycles will get a special insignia commemorative of the ride and journey undertaken by the commandos across India.
The expedition covered over 8000 km across the length and breadth of India. A total of 15 Braveheart Black Cat NSG Commandos on these motorcycles spread the message of collective responsibility towards fighting terror among citizens.
This NSG motorcycle expedition also commemorated the NSG’s 33 years of service to the nation. Flagged off on 7 September 2017 by Kiren Rijiju, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs of India, 15 Black Cat commandos of NSG rode across NSG bases at Kolkata, Mumbai, Gandhinagar, Hyderabad and Chennai, and culminated their expedition on 16 October 2017 at the NSG headquarters in Manesar, Haryana, wherein they were felicitated by the Vice President of India Shri Venkaiah Naidu.
Royal Enfield launched the new variants for the ever so popular Classic models in September this year. The Classic 350 is available in a new gunmetal grey colour scheme priced at Rs 1.59 lakh, while the Classic 500 comes with a black paint job priced at Rs 2.05 lakh (both the prices are on-road, Chennai).
