Royal Enfield Continental GT (Interceptor) 750 likely to debut on November 7 at EICMA
Royal Enfield has been testing the Continental GT 750 for almost two years now. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 or as reports on the interweb call it, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 750, will be on display at the 2017 EICMA show. As is the norm with Royal Enfield, they will launch the Interceptor 750 in Europe soon thereafter with an Indian unveil sometime early next year. From the few details we have seen of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 750, the motorcycle is the company's first all-new 750cc air-cooled parallel twin-cylinder fuel-injected engine. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 750's engine is likely to make upwards of 50PS. It is expected that the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 (guess we still have to keep shifting between the names floating around) will use a beefier frame of the existing Continental GT535. The brakes look to be a tad bigger than the ones on the GT535. The bike gets a bigger single disc brake upfront and at the rear wheel. ABS will be offered as standard for the international markets. By the time the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 goes on sale here, the Indian safety regulations will have mandated the inclusion of ABS. From the spy images, it is evident that the chain and sprocket are placed to the left of the motorcycle. The front suspension is a conventional, right-side up format while twin gas-charged shocks do duty at the rear.

The 750cc twin engine of the Royal Enfield Continental GT is expected to produce 50PS. The engine casings have a nice smattering of chrome
When it goes on sale next year, expect the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 to undercut the price of its competition - Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Ducati Monster 797 by a significant margin. The motorcycle though will be the most expensive bike that Royal Enfield will have on sale.
