The Continental GT shown in the pic is in its racing Avatar. There a Single seat and clip-on handlebars. The final design of the product is the same as the models shown during the EICMA 2017. On the other hand, the Interceptor 650 looks more comfortable to ride, yet it still has somewhat rear-set footpegs, in order to aid in handling.
Both bikes are powered by the all-new 650 cc air+oil cooled twin cylinder motor which produces 47 HP @ 7100 RPM and 52 Nm of torque @ 5200 RPM. Despite being a premium motor it still uses a Single Overhead Cam instead of DOHC.
The frame of the bike is designed by Harris Performance, while the suspension setup includes telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. The weight of the bike is almost 200 kg and the seat height is 804 mm. One worry of the people is the use of a rather skinny tyre at the rear wheel. With a 130/70 mm rubber, the bike may feel a little unstable at high speeds but since the company has done their 10 lakh kilometers of research, we are pretty sure they will turn out just fine.
