The new Continental GT 650 Twin is an evolution of the Continental GT 535, which in turn, was an evolution of the Continental GT 250 – the original Royal Enfield British café racer. Powered by the all-new 650 Twin, it looks every bit like its predecessor and performs even better.
True to their brand, Royal Enfield gave the Continental GT a very classic look. It sport a round headlight, twin dial gauges, exposed frame, spoked wheels, and dual reverse megaphone exhaust.
The Continental GT is a motorcycle that delights in the way it handles on the road, responding to the rider’s desires by feeling focused and integral while offering light and agile handling, allowing anyone to enjoy it.
The 650 Twin is the rebirth of Royal Enfield’s legendary parallel twin cylinder engine. And it’s driving two Royal Enfield classic motorcycles – the Interceptor and the Continental GT. The new engine is Royal Enfield’s most forward-looking yet, with a cleaner, elegant look, fewer components, less weight and easier maintenance. The 648cc, parallel-twin engine churns out power and torque figures of 47hp and 52Nm. The motor is mated to a 6-speed transmission.
The chassis is nimble and precise improving handling and ride quality. The distinctive sculpted tank, clip-on handlebars and classic-styled instruments give the motorcycle’s cockpit an authentic café racer vibe. It is equipped with disc brakes at the front and rear with Bosch dual-channel ABS.
