England. 1950s and 60s. Young men and women hop between cafes on their stripped down motorcycles, riding, racing and living a life high on freedom and style. The Continental GT 650 Twin is an ode to that era of rock-n-roll and a modern interpretation of the icon, Continental GT 250. A design marvel in its own right and a blend of tradition and modernity, the Continental GT 650 Twin reimagines the cultural phenomenon that refuses to fade away.
The Continental GT 650 Twin echoes its predecessor’s style, but it’s a whole new motorcycle. Its ergonomics offers an easy reach to the clip-on bars, for an optimum mix of steering feel and comfort. For that authentic look, the GT 650 comes with 36-spoke aluminium alloy rims, fitted onto Ceat Zoomcruz tyres, specially developed for Royal Enfield. The sculpted tank, eager attitude, weight-forward stance and rearset footrests, all hallmarks of a traditional cafe racer, allow the rider to tuck-in in a classic sporty riding position perfect for carving up the back roads or a ton of fun in the city.
Tested on real-road conditions for durability, balance and handling, the Continental GT 650 Twin delivers dynamic and responsive performance on every ride. A ground clearance of 174 mm and an excellent lean angle make it at home whether you are on the city streets or the back roads. Together with the strong and predictable stopping power of Bosch dual-channel ABS, you get assured braking with progressive feedback. With a 24-degree rake angle and 106 mm of trail, it feels nimble in the city, planted on the highways and confident on the twisties.
The simple, easy to maintain, 648cc engine is built for real world riding, with sufficient power to make light work of city traffic or cruise effortlessly on the open roads. While offering a very usable 47 horsepower at 7150 RPM and maximum of 52 Nm torque at 5250 RPM, the secret of the new engine lies in the way the power is delivered. Seamless throughout the rev range, 80% of the torque or maximum pulling power is available as low as 2500 RPM, ensuring smooth and rapid progress without the need for constant gear changes. Taking the task out of your rides and making them simple, unmingled fun.
