Royal Enfield Continental GT

LEAD Royal-Enfield

Retro looks and a modified powertrain make the Royal Enfield Continental GT the most sought-after Enfield ever. With low handlebars, a bright red paint job, racing-style seat and an electric and kick start, the Royal Enfield Continental GT is drop-dead gorgeous. Bringing back one of its erstwhile models, the Continental of the 1960s, this latest café racer is the most powerful Royal Enfield bike yet. A 535-cc single-cylinder engine has been tweaked to churn out 29.1 hp at 5,100 rpm. Though it’s a decent city ride, it reveals its true character on the highway because its five-speed transmission allows it to hit 150 kmph. Plus, this chunky beauty won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
