2024 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650

Owner: Royal Enfield

The updated Continental GT 650 takes its cues from the 1960s era of British motorcycling, with its cast alloy wheels and blacked-out aesthetic. Alongside its classically styled 1950s and ’60s-inspired predecessors, it recaptures the spirit of the café racer culture of the time, and also that of Royal Enfield’s own 1965 Continental GT 250. With its sculpted tank, eager attitude and tucked-in riding position, the Continental GT 650 carries all the hallmarks of a traditional café racer, making it perfect for carving up the back roads or having a ton of fun in the city.

The blacked-out engine and exhaust fuse seamlessly with the machine’s chassis, keeping the spotlight on the tank for a look that is guaranteed to make hearts race and heads turn. The GT 650 showcases Royal Enfield’s legendary parallel twin-cylinder motor, backed with an air- and oil-cooled parallel-twin configuration. A smooth throttle response throughout the rev range ensures sufficient power to make light work of the city traffic or carve up the corners. The frame of the motorcycle, developed in conjunction with the legendary Harris Performance, has been thoroughly tested for durability, and offers superior balance and handling.
