The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 shares the spectacular 650cc parallel-twin engine of the Interceptor 650. It is an air/oil-cooled motor which has been phenomenally designed to provide a blasting performance. This mill is capable of producing 47 PS of maximum power at 7150 rpm and 52 Nm of peak torque at 5250 rpm. For the transmission, there is a 6-speed gearbox which is a first for Royal Enfield. It is accompanied by a slipper clutch which makes the overall riding experience of this cafe racer that much more enjoyable.
Being a cafe racer, the Continental GT 650 features a pair of clip-on handlebars and rear-set footpegs. This setup provides a somewhat demanding riding posture. It isn’t too aggressive but yes, it is certainly much more engaging than what you will find on the Interceptor 650. Also, the fuel tank of the GT 650 has a different design and is also a bit smaller in capacity when compared to that of the INT 650. Other elements such as the dual-pod instrument cluster, halogen headlamp, taillamp, and blinkers, spoke wheels, dual exhausts remain the same.
