Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 Twin Cylinder Motorcycle has been spied in the country as launch is set to happen in late 2017
The Royal Enfield GT 750 is reality set to happen, which is the happy part and not so good part that it is not a V-Twin. More details on the engine later. For now, we are very excited for the fact that Royal Enfield has finally done it, it has made its first twin-cylinder engine in ages. After being in talk with Carberry for making its twin cylinder engine for other project that was in the works, what has been spotted here is a India spec model that will be rolled of the assembly line very soon. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has been spied in India again. Sid Lal, Enfield Boss, says the bike will be ‘highway worthy’. Let’s discuss more details on the same.
Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 Design and Dimensions
Design wise, it is set to remain the same. The same spoke wheels, the fuel tank, the naked and stripped out café racer look, round tail-light chrome anywhere possible and same everything else. What we can expect are new colors. As if the old color options on the motorcycle weren’t sexy enough.

Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 Chassis, suspension and brakes
On the looks of it, we can see that it has the same chassis as the 535cc engine equipped motorcycle. However, we expect it to beefed up and tuned well for the new powerful job that it will have to do with. The bike has new rear sets which can been seen in these pictures along with a new foot peg holder for the pillion.

Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 India Launch and Price
India launch should happen in late 2017 because there isn’t much work as the motorcycle is based on the 535. If Royal Enfield isn’t in the mood of teasing us like the Himalayan.
Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 Engine And Specification
The engine is the highlight. The 750cc is most likely the displacement for the twin-cylinder engine. The motor should end up making double the horsepower and torque from the 535cc engine makes. The expected number can be seen below. What can also been in the picture is that it is still running on carburetors and not fuel injection. How does Royal Enfield wants to pass the emission test in the Europe and India we have no idea because both nations and continents in former case are set to get very strict on the same. They don’t even look fake like the one on the Bonneville. The way the exhaust pipes are carved, it does means something special is on its way!

Maximum Power – 50-55 PS @ 7000 RPM*
Maximum Torque – 75 NM @ 5000 RPM*

Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 Safety and Features
We still cannot see ABS on this motorcycle, but we expect to see it on the production model or as option, something which is likely Royal Enfield will offer as an option.
The steps that Royal Enfield is taking since the 535 CGT came along are brilliant.
