The Royal Continental GT Libero Moto has been showcased at Thailand Motor Expo which began today. The motorcycle was customized by Thailand-based Libero Moto motorcycle studio.
The customised version of the cafe racer gets a black seat and a new white paint scheme. The exhaust canister is the same with Libero Moto embossed on it, while a smaller front fender and a new taillamp are the other changes.
The engine is the same electronic fuel injected 535 cc single pot, air cooled mill churning out 29.1 bhp of maximum power at 5,100 rpm and 44 Nm of peak torque at 4,400 rpm. Sourced from Vee Rubber, the new tyres lend the bike a slightly macho look. The front wheel gets 4.00-17 625 tyre while the rear gets a 4.50-17 675 tyre. The front suspension gets telescopic 41 mm forks and the rear continues with twin gas charged shock absorbers, with adjustable preload, sourced from Paioli.
The chassis of the Royal Enfield Continental GT has been developed by the UK-based Harris Performance. The braking system has been sourced from Brembo. Front wheel gets a single 300 mm floating disc with two-piston callipers while the rear gets a single 240 mm with a mono-floating calliper.
Royal Enfield has also recently announced its plans to reenter the Brazilian market. Latin America and South East Asian nations are expected to play a key role in Royal Enfield’s global domination plans.
