The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has been spied testing numerous times in India, Britain as well as Spain.
Royal Enfield is one Indian company which is constantly trying to improve, innovate and excel in any way possible – this is what the official communication one will get if you shoot a mail to their headquarters asking what are they up to nowadays. But they are a business entity, and to stay relevant in this fast changing world, they must work on new products and technologies.
After taking the Indian motorcycling market by storm, Royal Enfield is now trying to go upmarket and punch way above its weight in the European motorcycling circuit. Thus the company at its skunkworks in the U.K has been keeping itself busy building a new 750cc twin-cylinder engine and shoehorning it into a cool cafe racer with an awesome sounding name – the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has been spied testing multiple times on the roads of Britain and Spain, as well as India. The bike will be powered by the newly developed 750cc parallel-twin motor, with a 270-degree crank and an exhaust note to die for. The engine from the home-grown automaker is expected to produce 45-50 BHP of power, putting it in the same territory as the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Triumph’s Street Twin.
Local production is expected to result in to a price tag which will significantly undercut the competition in India. The motorbike will be getting fuel injection from the start and will be shod with fatter rubber than previous models from the company.
The motorcycle spied in the images shows a twin-exhaust system and either 17 or 16-inch wheels. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 gets an air-cooled mill assisted by an oil-cooler. This will make it more cost effective than liquid-cooling. Royal Enfield has previously said that it will launch a new product every year till 2018, and this bike seems to be the candidate for 2017. Although Royal Enfield didn’t deny the existence of the new Conti-750, they also couldn’t confirm an expected release date or price for obvious reasons.
