In terms of design, the Pegasus edition features quite a few cosmetic changes that separate it from the standard RE Classic 500. These include the Pegasus logo on the fuel tank with a unique serial number stencilled on it and a set of military-style canvas panniers. It also ditches the chrome elements found on the stock bike for a more subtle, blacked out theme on the exhaust muffler, engine rims, handlebar and the headlight bezel.

Internationally, the limited edition motorcycle comes in two distinctive military-inspired colours - Service Brown and Olive Drab Green. But considering the olive green paint scheme is reserved for the Indian Army, only the brown shade will make it to India. Royal Enfield will also offer Pegasus edition inspired range of gear. This includes shirts, t-shirts, caps, lapel pins, bags and helmets.
