The Continental GT will be the first bike from Royal Enfield to receive an ABS. The test mule spotted is found to sport a dual or single channel ABS, however, it will most likely receive a dual channel ABS. the updated version of the motorcycle will supposedly get engine updates too that will meet the BS-IV emission standards for India.
The Continental GT is the largest capacity RE from the existing product lineup, with a 535cc UCE engine the GT breaths out 29BHP of peak power and 44Nm of peak torque. With the updated engine meeting up the BS-IV standards, it is assured that the engine will become a lot cleaner and is also expected to gain more frugality. The motorcycle sports top notch bits, such as Pirelli Sport Demon tires and Paioli suspension to get the best blend of grip, ride, and comfort, retaining the old school café racer feeling.
The Continental GT is a beefy motorcycle offered by Royal Enfield from the export point of view with its retro café racing style; the motorcycle has built a lot of fans overseas. The Continental was launched in 2013 in India, even though it’s a pretty decent motorcycle, it was not able to attract much of crowd like its sibling the Royal Enfield Classic 500, let us hope that this update will help the Continental GT overcome the supremacy of the Classic 500.
