With the Continental GT, Royal Enfield kick-started the café racer motorcycle segment in India. The beautiful lines of the new café racer bike from Royal Enfield won many hearts but it never translated into good sales figure. This can be credited to the steep asking price of Rs 1.99 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. The Continental GT is also the highest displacement production bike from Royal Enfield and the 535cc, fuel-injected engine delivers 29.4PS and 44Nm of peak torque.
Royal Enfield loaded the café racer bike with the best cycle parts like double cradle frame, Brembo front disc brake and Pirelli tyres. The above meant that the Continental GT remains the most fun to ride Royal Enfield on sale. The Continental GT comes standard as a single-seat bike and pillion seat is an optional extra alongwith megaphone style muffler and bar end mirrors. The Royal Enfield café racer is a good option for someone who wants to stand out from the crowd and likes to spend most of the ride time in cityscape.
