New Royal Enfield Continental GT Hits The Road

By September 12, 2013General Posts

Royal Enfield has launched the Continental GT in the UK, unveiling it at the Ace Cafe, the place where the cafe racer tradition started and launching it at Brooklands Museum. The UK price of the Continental GT is £5200. The company calls the Royal Enfield Continental GT as the “fastest, lightest, most powerful Royal Enfield in production”. The Royal Enfield Continental GT is powered by a 535cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which produces 29.1 BHP of power at 5100 RPM and 44 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM.

How do you like RE's new bike; a cool Café Racer. These CRs are hotter than ever and it's no surprise Royal Enfield now offers their version. The slick Continental GT features conventional telescopic forks, clip-on bars, a notched fuel tank and a neat little tail section behind a flat seat.

Powered by an air-cooled 535cc ingle cylinder engine with chromed megaphone muffler, the Continental GT looks the part of a vintage bike, but features modern electronic ignition, Paioli gas-charged rear shocks, 5-speed transmission, and in addition to its kick starter, an electric start.When is it available in the US? You guess is as good as ours; we'll keep you posted. More info at the RE website.
