Royal Enfield motorcycles are regularly used in movies, both in India and abroad. The timeless appeal of these retro styled motorcycles have been a major reason for the Royal Enfields making it to movie sets on their own. One must note that Royal Enfield doesn’t pay movie makers to place its motorcycles in movies, unlike most other brands. Royal Enfield motorcycles are used by military and police forces in India, thus making them standard additions to movies involving the military and cops.
Coming to the Desert Storm 500, the motorcycle is powered by a 500cc unit construction engine. The engine outputs 27.2 Bhp of peak power and an ample 41.3 Nm of peak torque. Armed with fuel injection, the Desert Storm is capable of hitting 130 Kph. A front disc brake and electric start is standard on the motorcycle. Available in a unique paint finish, the Desert Storm has proven to be a fast seller for Royal Enfield. Click here to read Team ICB’s comprehensive review of the Royal Enfield Desert Storm 500.
