Is Royal Enfield Releasing Major Updates To Its 650 Range For 2024?

by Enrico Punsalang from https://www.rideapart.com Most interesting of all would have to be a sportier Continental GT 650. Ever since their debut back in 2018, the Continental 650 and Interceptor 650 pretty much propelled Royal Enfield to the global spotlight. Prior to the launch of these bikes, the brand had a decent footprint in Europe and Asia, with its retro-style machines being a favorite among classic aficionados. While the 650 Twins are well and truly classic in nature, they brought fairly modern performance technology to the equation. Naturally, a motorcycle with modern-day amenities such as ABS, electronic fuel-injection, and most of all, reliability, is something that anyone can appreciate. Throw in classic styling and an ultra affordable price tag, and what you have is a recipe for success. Indeed, in the past five years of the bikes’ existence, Royal Enfield has somehow managed to continue raking in sales by just updating colors and releasing special editions every now and then. As such, it isn’t at all surprising that the rumor mills have once again been churning. Word around the block is that RE is gearing up to drop major updates on the 650 model range, particularly to the sporty Continental GT. These updates may indeed be foreshadowed by the components we see in the Super Meteor 650. At this point, it’s important to note that Royal Enfield has yet to release any information on the upcoming 650 range, so the best we can do is speculate. Nevertheless, multiple sources suggest that the bike will break cover in time for the 2024 model year. So, what exactly can we expect? Well, our friends at VisorDown have an interesting prediction, and it’s that the upcoming Continental GT 650 will be equipped with alloy wheels, and possibly even the inverted front forks found on the […]

Isle Of Man TT Announces 2023 Schedule

Two UK Bank holidays should help IOMTT attendees enjoy more racing. by Dustin Wheelen from https://www.rideapart.com The Isle of Man TT (IOMTT) returned to the Snaefell Mountain Course in 2022 after a two-year hiatus. As expected, drama unfolded over the two-week period, but officials are always searching for ways to make the Tourist Trophy even better. With the aim of enhancing the event’s long-term sustainability by increasing overall visitor numbers, the new 10-race schedule addresses issues identified by IOMTT organizers. “This research revealed that the existing TT schedule, the Island’s travel capacity, the Island’s accommodation infrastructure, costs factored against the current economic climate, and customers’ changing habits are no longer compatible and do not meet the needs of the event’s customers,” stated MHK Minister for Enterprise Lawrie Hooper. To optimize the TT’s crowd-welcoming ability, organizers scheduled the opening-day qualifying on May 29, 2023, the U.K.’s Spring Bank Holiday. Authorities also deemed Friday, June 9, 2022, the “TT Bank Holiday”, bookending the racing event with two three-day weekends. The 2023 Isle of Man TT schedule follows: Qualifying Week Monday, May 29, 2023 – Morning & Afternoon Qualifying Tuesday, May 30, 2023 – Evening Qualifying Wednesday, May 31, 2023 – Evening Qualifying Thursday, June 1, 2023 – Evening Qualifying Friday, June 2, 2023 – Afternoon Qualifying Race Week Saturday, June 3, 2023 – Supersport (Race 1) and Sidecar (Race 1) Sunday, June 4, 2023 – Superbike TT Tuesday, June 6, 2023 – Superstock (Race 1) and Supertwin (Race 1) Wednesday, June 7, 2023 – Supersport (Race 2) and Sidecar (Race 2) Friday, June 9, 2023 – Superstock (Race 2) and Supertwin (Race 2) Saturday, June 10, 2023 – Senior TT Of course, many IOMTT attendees predicate travel plans based on their work schedules.
