Spied: 750cc twin-cylinder Royal Enfield spotted testing in India
Royal Enfield has been developing a 750cc motorcycle. The motorcycle has also been spotted testing first in Spain and then in the UK. Now a WhatsApp message shows the latest RE being tested on Indian roads. While we do not know the source of this message (if it's your video, please feel free to contact us), here are a few details we know about the motorcycle.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT750 (we will like to call it that for the moment) gets an all-new 750cc air-cooled parallel twin-cylinder fuel-injected engine. There are also the twin exhausts. The GT750's engine is expected to make around 50PS of power, significantly higher than the GT535's 29PS.
From the video and images, it is clear that the GT750 also gets broader tyres at the front and rear. Speaking of which, this RE is expected to get 17-inch tyres instead of the conventional 18 for other bikes from the stable. The bike also looks similar to the Continental GT that we have here and will have a beefier frame to handle all that extra power. The brakes too are bigger than the ones on the GT535. ABS will be offered as standard for the international market. However, given that this RE will be making its way down to the Indian showrooms sometime next year, expect it to also get this feature here to comply with the upcoming safety standards.
