At last the wait is over! Here we're bowing down before the most awaited Indian motorcycle of the era. Yup! I'm talking about the Continental GT and it has been launched just a while before in a special event held at Ace Cafe, in London. Initially, the Continental GT will only be available in the UK, Belgium, France, and Germany. Unfortunately, we Indians need to be little more patient to see this piece of RE in outlets.
The Continental GT is presently the fastest, lightest and the most powerful production bike of RE. Powered by a 535cc, Single Cylinder, 4 stroke, Air cooled engine, which delivers a firing peak power of 29.1 horse power @ 5100 revs and a peak torque of 44 Nm @ 4000 revs, the machine takes the rider to a top speed of 160 km/h. No wonder, this is such a piece of bi-wheeling to thrill the cafe racer class in the motorcycle world.
Built up in twin downtube cradle chassis, RE ensures better stability and riding comfy for the rider. Mated with Brembo 300mm Floating disc with 2-Piston floating caliper at front and 240mm Disc with Single piston floating caliper at rear give very much confidence to the rider even at high speeds.
As Telescopic, 41mm forks, 110mm travel does the front suspension, the rear is done by Paioli,Twin gas charged shock absorbers with adjustable preload, 80mm travel.
