A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.

The Royal Enfield Continental GT was launched in Nepal last week. The 535 cc cafe-racer was launched at Rs 7.05 lakh Nepali Rupees by its authorized distributor, Dugar Brother and Sons, at all its 14 sub-dealers. The company’s sales target for the first year is 100 units.

The bike manufactured in Oragadam, Chennai suffers from high import tax duties in Nepal. Converted to INR, the Rs 7.05 lakh Nepali Rupee price tag comes to Rs 4.4 lakh, which is still double the price the bike is retailed for here.

Stopping power comes from a 300 mm floating disc dual-caliper brake at the front and a 240 mm single piston floating caliper disc at the rear, both from Italian brake manufacturer Brembo.

The bike is powered by a bigger version of the 500 cc engine used in the Classic series.

The Continental GT, according to Royal Enfield, depicts the cafe-racer culture from Britain in the 1960s where stripped down bikes were fitted with custom-made parts to race in short stretches. The original Continental GT cafe-racer was launched first in 1965. The current version is made in collaboration with Harris Engineering and Xenophya designs, both in the UK.
