Since Royal Enfield launched the Classic 350 Signals with dual-channel ABS in the Indian market, the Classic 500 Pegasus owners are unhappy with the company. The reason is simple, Royal Enfield did not offer ABS on the more expensive Pegasus, while the cheaper Classic Signals 350 gets the vital safety feature.
We have already reported about owners of the Pegasus writing to Royal Enfield and expressing their dissatisfaction. In a recent development, a Royal Enfield Pegasus owner had thrown the bike to garbage, stating that without ABS the bike is useless. Now, a Pegasus owner has gone ahead and filed a Right To Information (RTI) petition.
Anuj Singh, a Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus owner has filed an RTI with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH). Anuj Singh has questioned the transport ministry that why the RE Pegasus 500 was launched in India without ABS.
He has questioned that why did Royal Enfield launch the Pegasus 500 without ABS even after the deadline of April 2018. From April 2018, all the new motorcycles above 125cc should be equipped with ABS. The Pegasus is a variant of the Classic 500.
As per the rule, all the existing two-wheelers above 125cc need to be equipped with ABS from April 2019. The RTI application filed by Anuj Singh will clear the confusion about the date for making ABS mandatory. But the Pegasus owners are not at all happy with RE for not providing the safety feature of ABS.
Royal Enfield recently launched the Classic 350 Signals with dual-channel ABS. Soon it was followed by the launch of the Classic 500 ABS and Himalayan ABS. Now, the owners of the RE Pegasus 500 are disappointed that even after paying a premium they do not get ABS.
Thoughts On Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus
The Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus is a limited edition model with only 250 units retailed in India. But the Signals 350 being a standard model, it is equipped with ABS. Now, is obvious that the Pegasus owners will be dissatisfied with this decision from RE.
By the end of this year, all the Royal Enfield bikes will be equipped with ABS. But what will be the fate of Pegasus? Only time will tell.
