The bike also features a new tan-coloured flat-sculpted racing seat, with contrast stitching.
Royal Enfield has worked closely with Xenophya Design in Northumberland, as well as Harris Performance in Hertfordshire to develop the overall spec of the motorcycle, including the new chassis.
Siddartha Lal, CEO of Royal Enfield, said: “The Continental GT in black captures the feeling of freedom and fun, and re-emphasises the motorcycle’s roots. Combined with its simplicity and traditional craftsmanship, it delivers on performance and aims to provide an unrivalled motorcycling experience that is unlike any other.
“The Continental GT is built to be an evolving motorcycle, and this is why we decided to launch a black version. It is a no-nonsense machine that is easy to maintain and one that turns heads without exception. Novices and veteran riders alike will appreciate the complete control of this motorcycle, and will be able to experience pure motorcycling at its best.”
The standard 500cc Bullet engine has been increased to 535cc, and with a larger throttle body and hotter cam it boosts an additional 4hp bringing it to around 32HP. The new chassis is sportier than the standard Bullet, and has a double down tube frame and longer swing arm. The suspension consists of a non-adjustable 38mm Gabriel fork and twin preload and rebound-adjustable Paioli shocks. A Brembo front brake and full-floating disc provide a serious upgrade in stopping power. To top it off, the Cafe Racer has a claimed weight of 365-lbs, which is 46-lbs less than the standard C5 Classic.
