We know how it looks, how much power it produces and how it feels to ride after Adil went for the international launch of the Royal Enfield Continental GT in the United Kingdom few months back. Still, the fact remains, that it is one of the most highly anticipated motorcycle launches of 2013. Well there is enough reason for all this hype as the cafe racer captured the public’s imagination ever since it was first showcased publicly at the 2010 Auto Expo in Delhi. It re-appeared at the 2012 Expo in a prototype avatar, with the bike featuring all the details to make it look production ready. And now finally in 2013 the Continental GT would be launched to the delight of Royal Enfield enthusiasts who have been lusting after it for more than a year.

Powering the bike would be a 535cc mill pumping out 29.5PS of power and 44Nm of torque which is coupled to a five-speed transmission. The bike weighs in at 184 kg and this endows it with the tag of the ‘fastest Royal Enfield’.
