YouTuber Akshay Kumar has posted a video of the KTM 390 Duke chasing the Royal Enfield Continental GT at triple digit speeds on a highway in Tamil Nadu. At one particular stretch, the naked bike touches 156 kmph, and the Continental GT 750 still manages to stay ahead. Towards the end of the video, the biker manages to get a clear shot of the bike.
This particular motorcycle seems to be the sportier, single seater version as you can see the rear portion of the seat is shaped like a cowl. The presence of heel protector on the foot peg and the sporty ergonomics reaffirm this speculation. However, this particular seat is different than the one spotted the previous time. The bike gets traditional oval rear view mirror and a sleek grab handle at the rear. The tail light and the rear indicators look like they’ve been borrowed from the current Continental GT.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear, with the reservoir at the top. Royal Enfield is likely to launch the bike by the end of this year. Going by the speed showcased in this video, the Continental GT 750 will be the fastest bike by Royal Enfield. It will lock horns with the Harley-Davidson Street 750.
