Owner discards his brand new Pegasus 500 limited edition bike in a garbage dump
The Hush Post: As the Royal Enfield has not been able to manage to offer a solution to Pegasus 500 owners, an owner of this limited edition bike has decided to discard his brand new motorcycle in a garbage dump.
A post shared by him on social media reads: “Pegasus owner Dheeraj Jarua goes and throws his bike in garbage dump… Says that this bike is just like useless trash to us after the launch of Signals.”
Notably, last month the Royal Enfield had launched a limited edition Pegasus 500 motorcycle in India. The manufacturers had said that it is an exclusive motorcycle and only 250 units of them will be made, a report said.
Immediately within a few weeks, they launched a similar looking Classic 350 version, which is priced about Rs 80k cheaper and also gets ABS. It has left the owners of Pegasus 500 bike very angry. They have accused the company Royal Enfield of cheating them. Royal Enfield did revert, and this is what they gave in reply to Pegasus 500 owners.
Very angry with the reply, Tridib Sood, an owner of Pegasus 500 bike replied: “So, you mean to say that we paid Rs.35k extra, in few cities Rs. 50k, just for the colour and that one emblem, that’s it?? Glad you didn’t justify yourself by saying that what makes the RE Pegasus unique is the small nut that has been used just beside the engine, and those nuts wouldn’t be used in any your future bikes.
THAT’S SO PATHETIC!!
I have a few questions for you:
- If it was just the colour and the emblem, why did you make this big fuss about it’s overall styling, especially the unique stenciled number on the tank?
- How can a ‘homage’ to the Indian Army and Airforce be exactly same to ‘homage’ to the British Army?
- Why didn’t we get ABS when the rest of the 750 bikes sold around the world has ABS in them?
- Why are your dealers calling up people, who couldn’t get their hands on the Pegasus 500, and telling them to test ride the Signals 350 as it looks exactly the same to the former model?
