Welcome back, Rock 'N Roll
The new Continental GT 650 Twin is an evolution of the Continental GT 535, which in turn, was an evolution of the Continental GT 250 - the original Royal Enfield British cafe racer. Powered by the all-new 650 Twin, it looks every bit like its predecessor and performs even better.
A blast from the past.
It takes more than good looks to carve through a corner. The design and development team applied its many years of accumulated know-how while setting key parameters like steering rake, ground clearance, and lean angle, to create the perfect ride for this sports-inspired cafe-racer. The Continental GT is a motorcycle that delights in the way it handles on the road, responding to the rider's desires by feeling focused and integral while offering light and agile handling, allowing anyone to enjoy it.
Beauty is often overlooked in chassis design. But this new frame blends the authentic form of period classics with the superb handling and ride of modern engineering. The result is a chassis that's nimble and precise, making for a pure and enjoyable ride. Whether on the Interceptor, or the Continental GT.
The Twin is in
The 650 Twin is the rebirth of Royal Enfield's legendary parallel twin-cylinder engine. And it's driving two Royal Enfield classic motorcycles - the Interceptor and the Continental GT. While classically styled and visually beautiful, the new engine is Royal Enfield's most forward-looking yet, with a cleaner, elegant look, fewer components, less weight and easier maintenance.
The Parallel with no parallel
Of course, the 650 Twin is notable not only for its character, but also for its sound. Developing the right tone and burble from its twin silencers was an important goal during the engine's creation. Whether at idle or at full chat, during over-run or while winding on the power, the exhaust note just oozes individuality.
