In this case, the buyer will get a straight 10 % discount on the on-road price of the motorcycle thanks to its ‘used bike’ status.

Who should avoid this motorcycle?

Those who want relaxed ergonomics should stay away from the GT 650. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 is a cafe-racer styled motorcycle that gets rear set foot pegs, clip-on handlebars and a riding position that requires the  rider to crouch and stretch out. While a lot of riders who’re fit will enjoy this riding position, which allows them  to corner more aggressively, others will find the riding position a little too aggressive. So, the GT 650 is not for them. They can instead consider the Interceptor 650, which has relaxed ergonomics.

The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 was launched late last year, alongside the Interceptor 650. Both motorcycles  have the same mechanicals and cycle parts while styling and ergonomics are different. Both bikes use a 647cc,  parallel twin engine that Royal Enfield has just developed. This motor makes 47 Bhp-52 Nm, and is the most modern  unit that Royal Enfield has ever produced. It gets four valve heads running on a single overhead camshaft, and is  fuel injected.

There’s air-oil cooling on offer, and the motor is paired to a 6 speed manual gearbox with a slipper clutch as  standard. Telescopic front forks, twin gas charged rear shock absorbers, twin exhausts, disc brakes on both wheels  with dual channel ABS and spoked wheels are key features of both the GT 650 and Interceptor. Both motorcycles are  capable of hitting top speeds of over 160 Kph, with the 0-100 Kph sprint coming up in under 6 seconds. Royal Enfield not only sells this bikes in India but exports it to countries around the world.
