Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 is all set to Race! Read

New Delhi: 

The Royal Enfield may not be known for making a sport bike but this updated version of the Continental GT 650 suggests that testing could be a good idea. A distinctive image of the Continental GT650 sport is on display at the Busted Knuckled Build-Off in Australia. 

Labeled No. 55 GT 650 Production Racer, a bicycle designed by Royale Motorcycles undergoes a complete overhaul including a new exhaust unit.

The original Continental GT 650 round headlights make way for a new fiberglass fairing that turns a retro motorcycle into a sports car, ready to take on the track. However, the conversion is not just about small cosmetic updates.

The subframe of this modified version of Continental GT also gets a new look and comes with a fully adjustable gold USD fork, borrowed from Triumph Daytona. The rear suspension features a fully adjustable mono-shock connected to an old Honda borrowed swingarm.

The converted bike rides 17-inch alloys featuring Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC slicks from British supersport. The standard Continental GT rides 18-inch units on both ends.

The brakes on the first bike are handled by a single 320mm disc attached to the Bybre with four piston caliper on the front, and a single 240mm disc brake at the end. This modified version, however, uses a twin front disc and a single Nissin rear unit.

While the motorcycle is equipped with the same 650cc twin motor used in the first bike, performance may be enhanced by smaller tweaks. In the original Royal Enfield Continental GT 650, the 650 cc unit is tuned to deliver 47 bhp of maximum power and 52 Nm of maximum torque. The limited exhaust has been replaced by a free flow unit in this Continental GT model.

Launched in 2017, the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 comes with a starting price of Rs 3.04 lakh (old exhibition room) in India.
