The Nought Tea GT version 2.0 succeeds the Royal Enfield Factory Custom and Harris Performance’s “Nought Tea GT” that was revealed in May this year. Royal Enfield and Harris Performance worked with Brembo, Ohlins and HEL to create the two special motorcycles. The custom bikes weigh 18.5 kg less than the standard Continental GT. The Nought Tea GT version 2.0 has also received an increase in power of 26% at the rear wheel. Paul Young (Official Factory Test Rider) and Curtis Wright (Factory Custom Rider) will ride the specially designed motorcycles for the Cafe Racer Cup.

The standard Continental GT has undergone several mechanical upgrades to shed weight and gain power. The anchoring department has also been updated with Brembo braking setup to suit the increase in engine performance more efficiently. The suspension setup, as mentioned above, has been revised with fully adjustable, Ohlins-sourced units. Check out all the updates that the Royal Enfield Nought Tea GT V 2.0 has received:

The Nought Tea GT version 2.0 project sees Royal Enfield return to the race track for the first time in 54 years. The full-fairing and the double bubble screen enhances the sporty look of the motorcycle, and the custom-built cafe racers are an absolute treat to the eyes. The two bikes feature a single-tone paint job, and both look equally appealing. But we still admire the dual-tone colour of the original Nought Tea GT (version 1.0).
