cf_gallery_15Inspired by Royal Enfield’s highly desirable 250cc cafe racer of 1965, the all-new Continental GT is powered by a 535cc fuel injected engine, putting out 29bhp and developing 44Nm of torque.

Like the original Continental GT, the new version is based around a standard road bike, which is then equipped with uprated bodywork and parts to give it a sporty look and feel.

The design team really went to town for this flagship model; the flex-free double cradle frame was created by Harris Performance. Combined with 41mm front forks, Paioli rear shocks and Pirelli Sport Demon tyres, handling is razor sharp. Rear set footrests, clip on handlebars and chiselled fuel tank add to the sporty feel.

Braking gets a makeover too, with a 300 mm Brembo floating disc up front and 240 mm disc at the rear, delivering plenty of stopping power.
