    Overall The bike riding experience 

    Overall the bike riding experience in every mode is best ever in this segment i have driven dominar 400 and pulsar rs 300 but this bike duke390 is powerful naked beast and comfortable for the long rides as well better than rc390 i have also driven that but rc doesn't suits me although it is very good in segment.Duke has a little more vibration than rc 390 best thing about it is the pickup of bike in the starting gears and good accessories such as tft display and sporty lamps and indicators& look but these type have very less value after use duke 390 goes crazy on the ride mode.The power to the weight ratio is good but suits on the fit guy.

    Title: "Royal Enfield GT 

    Owning the royal enfield gt 650 has been a journey filled with highs and lows.Let's start with the positives: the bike's handling is impeccable, Offering riders a sense of control and confidence on both straight highways and winding roads.The refined engine delivers smooth power delivery, Making every ride a pleasure.And i also getting a mileage about 25-27 on highway and 22-25 on city use.Im using the chrome variant and it's stand out from the crowd.However, There are notable drawbacks that prospective buyers should consider.The heating problem, Especially during warm weather, Can be uncomfortable, Making it impractical to ride while wearing shorts.Additionally, The fuel meter's inaccurate readings can be frustrating, Requiring extra attention to avoid running out of fuel unexpectedly.The bike's weight may also pose a challenge for some riders, Although it's something many enthusiasts adapt to over time.Another issue is the limited availability of tires, With the default ceat tires not offering the same level of grip as the previous mrf ones.The service cost is range between 5k to 6kdespite these flaws, The royal enfield gt 650 remains a solid choice for touring enthusiasts.Its power and performance in this price segment are unmatched, Making it a compelling option for riders who prioritize long-distance journeys and value for money.With some minor adjustments and aftermarket upgrades, It can truly shine as a touring powerhouse.

    Cylinder bikes 

    What is it? a nod to the stripped-down cafe racers that zipped around london in the 1960s, The 2021 royal enfield continental gt 650 is a new bike with throwback style and a warmly rumbling heart — an air-cooled, 648cc parallel twin engine.Is it new?yup, But it’s been in the works for a minute.Royal enfield announced its first twin-cylinder bikes since 1970 — the int 650 and the continental gt 650 — in the fall of 2018.The third editions of both bikes hit dealers this past fall, And we finally got some seat time in november 2020.What makes it special?if i may be shallow for a moment, One thing that really stands out about this bike: its looks.The compact curves, Bubbly gas tank and shiny chrome are simultaneously gorgeous and delightfully retro.They combine to recall a simpler time, When we didn’t need fancy electronics, Touchscreens and gps to saddle up and hit the open road.You know a bike has nailed that vibe when multiple people ask how old your bike is — and are gobsmacked when you tell them it’s new.

    Worthy investment 

    After six months of riding the royal enfield continental gt 650 in india, I must say it's been an exhilarating experience.The classic design turns heads wherever i go, And the 650cc engine delivers ample power for both city commuting and highway cruising.The bike's handling is impressive, Making it a joy to carve through traffic or take on winding roads.However, I've noticed some minor issues with build quality, Particularly with certain components showing signs of wear sooner than expected.Overall, Though, The continental gt 650 offers a nostalgic riding experience with modern performance, Making it a worthy investment for any motorcycle enthusiast.

    Thrilling Performance with Classic Elegance 

    " The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 combines amazing dynamics with classical styling to bring to the motorcyclist the best of the two worlds. Customers fall in love with the parallel-twin performance engine that powers a dynamic ride in both the thick city traffic and along all open roads. The cafe racer style, paired with the addition of dual-channel ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) contributes to a biker being hit by a simple yet beautiful bike. Nevertheless a minority of supporters note the shortcomings with the seat comfort for the trips that take too long and recommend a faster improvement in suspension tuning for a softer ride."
