Royal Enfield has never shied away from its lineage as one of the industry’s premier motorcycle developers, especially when it comes to heritage-imbued platforms. While a vast majority of the brand’s motos are known for their historic styling, the Classic 500 has become a beacon for iconic motorcycle aficionados everywhere. Now, Royal Enfield is taking the bike a step further with a timeless Stealth Black colorway.
Mechanically, the Classic 500 Stealth Black is the same as its counterparts — it boasts a 27.2-horsepower, single-cylinder engine, unrivaled fuel efficiency, and a handsome design terminology that lends itself to the platforms of old. This iconic post-war cycle comes outfitted with a 499cc, air-cooled powerplant, die-cast casings, vintage graphics, and a time-tested style that been “sleeping under the stars” since 1901. The Classic 500 might look intimidating from a distance, but thanks to bespoke features like a pillion seat, 18-inch wheels, and an above-average torque rating at low RPMs, this modest commuter is a comfortable, accessible bike that’s as dependable as they come.
