Two variants of Royal Enfield’s upcoming flagship motorcycle, the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 have been spied. From the looks of it, one is a single-seater sporty version while the other is a more practical variant with a bench seat.

The two variants have different riding positions. The cafe racer variant is more aggressive while the bench-seat variant is relatively laid-back.

The café racer-inspired variant also comes with sporty handlebars and a chiselled tank like the current Continental GT. Apart from the long bench seat, the practical model comes with new rear-view mirrors and more ergonomic, raised handlebars. That coupled with the redesigned tank hints at enhanced touring capabilities. Moreover, the café racer version has rear-set foot pegs with heel protectors for sporty riding. The other variant comes with slightly forward-set foot pegs for added comfort.

Both bikes are powered by the same 750 cc parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree crank. The powerplant is air and oil-cooled. The bikes use a front telescopic fork and dual rear gas-charged shock absorbers for suspension duties. Disc brake are seen on both ends with ABS expected at least as an option.

The Continental GT 750 will be more expensive than the Continental GT (pictured) and will be the brand's new flagship product.

It is speculated that Royal Enfield might launch the 750 cc in two variants for more versatility. The Continental GT 750 will compete with Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the bike is likely to cost around INR 4 lakh when it launches this financial year.
