Thus far, we’ve seen several spyshots of the upcoming twin-cylinder powered Continental GT claimed to be a 750cc motorcycle road testing in India as well as Europe. But today we have come across a close-up mule parked somewhere near Tamil Nadu.
The GT 750 seems to be in the early stages of development, perhaps the production motorcycle will have a more unique exterior design. The test-mule spotted here is probably an international-spec motorcycle, as the Indian-spec 535cc Continental GT gets the tachometer with rev counts in tens digits this one here features it in single digits.
There is no fix time frame for the launch of this new 750 cc twin cylinder motorcycle but the company big boss, Mr. Siddhartha Lal had confirmed that they will launch a completely new motorcycle this-year, thus, we expect Royal Enfield to launch the Continental GT 750 by end of this-year in the Indian market.
It is based on a 535 cc GT variant chassis, however, note the extended sub-frame which confirms some design changes are likely on the bigger Royal Enfield. Under the skin, the GT 750 is expected to be powered by a 750 cc parallel-twin engine, speculated to use an oil-cooling for this mill. The engine is likely to produce about 50 BHP of power and over 60 Nm of torque respectively.
Royal Enfield’s UK technical centre and its subsidiary Harris Performance are reported to be are actively involved in its development.
