Welcome back, Rock n Roll
The new Continental GT 650 Twin is an evolution of the Continental GT 535, which in turn, was an evolution of the Continental GT 250 - the original Royal Enfield British café racer. Powered by the all-new 650 Twin, it looks every bit like its predecessor and performs even better.
Retaining the classic horizontal split running right through, the motorcycle's engine is elegantly cut off from the new bodywork with a dual cradle frame. The distinctive sculpted tank, clip-on handlebars and classic-styled instruments give the motorcycle's cockpit an authentic café racer vibe. Rear-set footrests and upswept exhausts allow for better lean angles – a café racer requisite for pulling off ton-ups. Just like in 60s London.
It takes more than good looks to carve through a corner. The design and development team applied its many years of accumulated know-how while setting key parameters like steering rake, ground clearance, and lean angle, to create the perfect ride for this sports inspired cafe-racer. The Continental GT is a motorcycle that delights in the way it handles on the road, responding to the rider's desires by feeling focused and integral while offering light and agile handling, allowing anyone to enjoy it.

The 650 Twin is the rebirth of Royal Enfield's legendary parallel twin cylinder engine. And it’s driving two Royal Enfield classic motorcycles - the Interceptor and the Continental GT.Classically styled and visually beautiful.
A single-piece forged crank with 270 degree firing order was developed for the way the engine 'feels' when making its power. An old school-inspired engine with high character, it delivers power smoothly.
Of course, the 650 Twin is notable not only for its character, but also for its sound. Developing the right tone and burble from its twin silencers was an important goal during the engine’s creation.
Beauty is often overlooked in chassis design. But this new frame blends the authentic form of period classics with the superb handling and ride of modern engineering. The result is a chassis thats nimble and precise, making for a pure and enjoyable ride
