YouTuber Kamal Here uploaded the video of him chasing the Royal Enfield 750 cc motorcycle on the open highway. The uploader says the test mule does not have ABS as a tyre-screeching sound was heard while coming to a halt. However, in August, a test bike with ABS was spotted. As per the video, the Royal Enfield 750 is capable of cruising at triple digit speeds effortlessly. This particular motorcycle has a café racer design, with clip-on handlebars, rear-set footpegs and a chiselled fuel tank. A Bonneville-like variant of the bike was spied in August. In another instance, a KTM 390 Duke rider also tried chasing the 750 on the highway.
Royal Enfield is likely to display the upcoming motorcycle at the 2017 EICMA in November. The company launched two new variants of the Classic 350 and the Classic 500 in September. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 will compete with Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the bike is likely to cost around INR 4 lakh when it launches in the market this financial year.
