Watsonian sidecars go Continental

Watsonian now have a fitting kit to attach a sidecar to the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 Twin.

The British sidecar manufacturer has been a Royal Enfield dealer for more than 20 years and already produces fitting kits for the Interceptor 650, Meteor 350, Himalayan and 500cc single cylinder models.

Designed and built in Watsonian’s Cotswold factory, the kit consists of a sub-frame, that bolts to neatly under the twin cylinder engine, to provide sturdy and secure mounting points for the lower arms that attach the sidecar. The upper arms attach to clamps on existing mounting points on the bike’s frame.

Made from tubular steel that is welded for strength, the kit is powder-coated for a long-lasting finish, and all the clamps and bolts are heavy-duty items, specifically designed and manufactured for the job.

Any sidecars from Watsonian’s range can be attached using the kit. It is shown here with the lightweight Prescott sidecar, which has a fibreglass body and sits on a tubular steel chassis, with hydraulic suspension for a smooth ride. The fold-down screen is mounted on a bespoke aluminum casting and storage space behind the seat is accessible by titling the seat forward.

The Continental GT 650 fitting kit sells for £475 and prices for the Prescott Sidecar start at £4,895- (including VAT). Watsonian offer a full factory fitting service and are also an official Royal Enfield dealer, so can supply complete outfits.
