There was much speculation about the Continental GT motorcycle from Royal Enfield which was showcased almost 2 years back at the Indian Auto expo. Royal Enfield launched the much awaited Continental GT in United kingdom first and now it has arrived finally in our Indian market. Many of you might ask what is so special about this motorcycle and how does it differ from any other Royal Enfield products out there? so the answer to your question is that the Continental GT is the most powerful and the lightest modern day cafe racer which blends retro style with modern appeal perfectly.

The modern continental GT is powered by a 535cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which generates more power than any other Royal Enfield motorcycle till date. It has both electric and a kick starter as an option. The new Continental GT only weighs 184 Kgs(with 90% fuel), and has a 13.5 liter fuel tank capacity. The motorcycle has been sculptured to retain its old school looks and the elongated fuel tank leaves little space only for the rider to fit in their soft cushioned saddle.

Let’s find out all the details of the cafe racing culture its history and also everything about this modern era cafe racer from Royal Enfield which we must admit is the most stylish looking motorcycle from Royal Enfield.

UPDATE 26/11/13 Royal Enfield launched the Continental GT today priced at Rs.2.05 lakhs (Ex showroom Delhi). Read our exclusive review of the Royal Enfield continental GT here.

Royal Enfield will get two models in its upcoming 750cc range.

Royal Enfield will get two models in its upcoming 750cc range.

Apart from the Cafe-Racer styled, there will be a classic retro motorcycle running on the 750cc unit.

In a bid to create a niche market for themselves, the post-British Royal Enfield has a newfound interest in having multiple cylinders under its hood with added capacities. As we have been speculating about it ever since it was caught testing in Spain last year, fresh new spied shots of the bike has been surfacing the internet for a while now.

With these latest image snapped by enthusiasts on a social media platform, we now have proof of not one, but two 750cc motorcycles will be joining the bandwagon for 2018. Although there is minimal camouflaging, I think I’ve already fallen for this Classic 750 sprouting in all vibrant colours.

Thailand has an answer for a cheaper Royal Enfield Continental GT

Thailand has an answer for a cheaper Royal Enfield Continental GT

Thailand-based Stallions Motor shows how to copy-paste and voila!

The Continental GT is Royal Enfield’s way of making the most powerful and the lightest modern day cafe racer which blends retro style with modern appeal perfectly. Powered by a 535cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which generates more power than any other Royal Enfield motorcycle till date. Since its launch in 2010, the Continental looks and feel very much in the 60s’ and 70’s and is unique. Not anymore though.

A Thailand based motorcycle manufacturer called as Centaur recently launched a Continental GT lookalike and named it as the Stallion Centaur Siam 150cc. When I say lookalike, I mean a carbon copy. They have basically taken all the retro elements including the body panels off the GT and fixed on a smaller chassis and a smaller 150cc engine.

In the beginning of the video you can watch a Royal Enfiel;d Continental GT takes on a Pulsar RS200. Now e all k now while the RE is a complete café racer its opponent the Pulsar is a hardcore sportsbike. The Contiental GT although is powered by a more powerful single cylinder, air cooled, 4 stroke 535 cc engine which produces about 29 Bhp of peak power and an impressive 44 Nm of torque and is paired to a 5 speed gearbox. The Pulsar RS200 on the other hand is powered by a much smaller 199.5 cc sin gle cylinder liquid cooled unit which is capable of producing about 24 Bhp of peak power and 19 Nm of torque. But what makes the Pulsar Faster than the Continental GT is also the fact that it is comparatively heavier than the RS200 as well.

Mahindra Mojo VS Royal Enfield Continental GT

Mahindra Mojo VS Royal Enfield Continental GT

Which one will you choose amongst the duo

The Mahindra Mojo was one of the most anticipated motorcycle of the Indian market because it took really long time for Mahindra who is actually popular in the Indian market for their Sports utility vehicles. While the Royal Enfield Continental GT on the other hand was actually a surprise move from the manufacturer because they have an image of making Cruisers so a Café Racer body type motorcycle from them that too in the Indian market was a bold move.

Now both the Continental GT and the Mahindra Mojo are too very different motorcycles. While the RE Continental GT is a pure café racer the Mahindra Mojo actually comes with a duel character or that is how it is actually pitched in the Indian market. Compared to the Mahindra Mojo The RE flagship offering inh the Indian market gets a bigger engine but if we talk about powers disappointingly the Mojo gives tough competition to the RE café racer although it gets a smaller displacement engine.

The Continental GT definitely will attract to some purist motorcycle riders only because of its styling as well as the riding position which we can assure is not at all comfortable for long ride but the Mojo on the other hand definitely will attract almost everyone’s attention because it promises to provide a plush ride.

So if you are planning to buy an out of the box motorcycle then you should definitely read this article before actually taking any drastic decision.
