After multiple sightings, it's well-known by now that Royal Enfield is presently testing its 750cc Continental GT motorcycle. Recently, some new images of the motorcycle have appeared on the internet and these ones reveal more details about the bike. The 750cc motorcycle has been spotted by Bike media in Chennai and according to these images, the design of the motorcycle is being carried from the Continental GT. The 750 cc bike gets round headlamps, Clubman handle bars, twin pod instrument cluster and matte black dual exhausts.
Royal Enfield GT750 will be the flagship model in the company's product portfolio and will be powered by a 750cc, twin-cylinder engine, which is expected to churn out 45-50hp of power and around 60Nm of torque. The suspension comprises of telescopic shock absorbers at the front and gas charge shock absorbers at the rear. It is also expected that the motorcycle will get ABS as standard.
With the new motorcycle, Royal Enfield will enter the growing 750cc motorcycle segment in India and abroad. The 750cc Continental GT will be the first motorcycle to be developed in the UK-based Royal Enfield Technology Centre, which was established last year. In 2015, the company acquired the Harris Performance and its staff, who will take care of all performance and development of the upcoming range of Royal Enfield motorcycles at the UK-based technology centre.
Royal Enfield will launch a new model every year to in order expand its line-up and market share. When launched, the Continental GT750 will compete with the likes of the Harley-Davidson Street 750, which presently rules the 750 cc segment in terms of sales.
