Royal Enfield’s sporty Café Racer, the Continental GT has already been warmly received wherever showcased at prominent international motor shows. It’s already confirmed the eagerly anticipated, all Indian classic bike will slip into showrooms here later this year, while a pre-production Royal Enfield Continental GT has just been photographed being tested in the Bangalore region by a Royal Enfield aficionado and Autocar India reader. The picture shows a cropped front mudguard, elongated fuel-tank, sporty clip-on handlebars and spoke rims, apart from a flat, comfortable riding saddle with ample room for two.
Expect the Continental GT to house a four-stroke, single-cylinder, 535cc, air-cooled and fuel-injected engine.
This café racer will be held together by a tubular steel constructed frame and swingarm, with telescopic fork front suspension and a pair of gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. For stopping power, the café racer is expected to use single disc brakes front and rear. Chunky tyres will add muscle to this smart motorcycle and we look forward to getting astride the Continental GT in days to come.
