Spy Shot Of The Royal Enfield Continent GT 750

Expected to go on sale this year, it will be a direct competitor of the Harley Davidson Street 750. Powered for the first time by a 750 cc twin-cylinder engine, the chassis Instead of liquid cooling, plans to use an oil-cooler.

The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has the chassis from the Royal Enfield Continental GT, but it gets an extended sub-frame which means that some design changes are likely for the more potent model.

The 750 cc variant gets clubman handlebars unlike the 535 cc variant, which features clip-on handlebars. The rev count in single digits suggests this model is probably an international-spec test mule, as in the Indian-spec 535 cc varian the tachometer with rev counts in tens digits.

    Looks like they’ve put some miles on that one! Will be interesting to see how that competes with Triumph, especially given so many Triumph dealers down here in Australia are also Royal Enfield dealers…

    Looks like someone stole the blueprints for a late Bonnie and got them back to front.

    It is a test mule and not a prototype guys…I think it will be interesting to see what they come out with but I’m a little skeptical of a 750. Yes the US, Euro, and Aus markets may be moving away from big American style cruisers and into smaller standards, but I think a 900-1200cc 450lb standard is where it’s at market wise. Of course I’m usually wrong so…

    Shame they didn’t use the late RE Interceptor style as successfully delivered by Triumph and Fiat with their cool 500 series. These 60/70’s RE Twins were really looking kewler than their competitors but… What do I know 🙂 !!!

    OKAY? Another manufacturer trying to revamp the British classic “CAFE” racer of the 50s and 60s.
    A nice change to be not from Japan and looks like the guy could not afford the alloy tank and didn’t want the discomfort of rear sets and clip-ons.
    But why not just revamp the constellation? Arguably the best engineered engine of all time and no slouch to boot. Easily show its heals to Norton and Triumph (maybe not Vincent with its 300cc less engine capacity) BUT SMOOTH, SMOOTH as silk.
    Whose next from the old brit manufacturers?

    Hmmm? Lipstick on a pig? This thing looks more like a backyard project than a bike about to go into production. I agree with NoH2oh that the tank seams are horrible. Hopefully, they’ve intentionally make it look hideous to disguise the real production bike looks. With such advancements in bike and manufacturing technology over the years, why wouldn’t they build a more modern variant? I think it has “fail” written all over it. But then again, I’m in the same camp as some of the other’s who have chimed in where I’m usually wrong.

    tank seams do suck. but i love the idea of enfield doing this.

    I like that Royal Enfield is uping the displacement and horsepower.
