Royal Enfield's latest product, the Continental GT was a pleasant surprise when we got astride last month. Its looks like sporty British bikes from the '60s and its top-notch quality levels makes it stand out from among the crowd of regular RE offerings.
It comes equipped with a 535cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine with the option of button or kick-start and good for 29.1bhp and 4.49kgm of torque. It works in tandem with a one-down, four-up gearlever. There are features like a pass-light flasher and engine kill switch, among others and single disc brakes, front and rear. The manufacturer claims it will give a 25-30kpl fuel economy.
We expect Royal Enfield to offer the Continental GT at around Rs. 2.25 lakh.
