The Royal Enfield Continental GT modified by ace tuner and performance parts manufacturer Matt Capri has broken the land speed record in the 500 Modified Push-rod Partially Streamlined category or 500 MPPS category. The Continental GT achieved an unofficial 156.3kph.

Rider Nadine de Freitas, who holds a doctorate degree in physical therapy, set the record on the modified Continental GT and says, the motorcycle transforms from a streetbike to a race bike perfectly. She also says the vehicle handled, performed and braked well, and was track-worthy.
