Rumours are afloat on the internet that the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 may world premiere at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle exhibition which opens 7 November for the media. Some reports are calling the motorcycle the Royal Enfield Interceptor 750, though there is really no basis or confirmation.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has been spotted numerous times and is seemingly in its final stages of development. The bike was spotted with ABS last month. In another instance, two versions of the motorcycle were spotted, possibly indicating the launch of more than one variant.
The powerplant is a 750cc parallel unit with oil cooling and fuel injection. The engine reportedly features a 270-degree crank for optimal refinement and will be highway worthy. The downtubes of the double cradle frame hold the longitudinal radiator. The bike gets dual black exhausts, and the tyres are likely to be Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp. For suspension, the bike employs traditional forks at the front and dual gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear.
Brakes include single disc on both ends. The Royal Enfield 750 will lock horns with Harley-Davidson Street 750, and the bike is likely to cost around INR 4 lakh when it launches in India this financial year. Expect the ABS variant at an INR 20k-30k premium over the standard bike. When launched, this motorcycle will be the fastest and most powerful Royal Enfield on sale.
