Royal Enfield has fully revealed its newest creation – the Continental GT. The new motorcycle keeps all the traits that are common for the Royal Enfield family and it is pretty safe to say that at the moment, is the best motorcycle designed the company.
The new Royal Enfield Continental GT features an old school style that draws inspiration from the classic bikes of the ‘60s. We especially like the sculpted shape of the fuel tank, the retro tail and the 18 inch spoked wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli Sport Demon tyres.
Despite its classic appearance, the Continental GT is packed with contemporary technologies. Therefore, you get Keihin EFI, electric starting, digital electronic ignition, Brembo brakes and dual Paioli gas-charged piggyback rear shocks.
At the heart of the 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT sits a single cylinder, 4 stroke, air cooled engine with a displacement of 535 cc. It is mated on a five speed constant mesh transmission with wet, multiplate clutch. The engine delivers a maximum power of 29.1 bhp (21.4 kW) at 5100 rpm with 44 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm which makes the Continental GT the strongest model in Royal Enfield’s lineup.
Moreover, the new Continental GT is not only the strongest Royal Enfield motorcycle, but is also the lightest as it weighs only 184 Kgs.
The new 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT will be available on the UK market from October with a base price of 5,200 pounds.
