RE Twin Continental GT 650
The Twins' are IN...
The 650 Twin is the rebirth of Royal Enfield's legendary parallel twin cylinder engine. It's driving two Royal Enfield classic motorcycles - The Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. While classically styled and visually beautiful, the new engine is Royal Enfield's most forward-looking yet, with a cleaner, elegant look, fewer components, less weight and easier maintenance.
A single-piece forged crank with 270 degree firing order was developed for the way the engine ‘feels’ when making its power. An old school-inspired engine with high character, it delivers power smoothly. The slightly off-beat feel of a 270 degree crank engine makes it feel truly special and keeps a broad spread of torque at your disposal throughout the rev range. The highly precise Bosch fuel injection system ensures smooth, accessible power that is available from the moment the throttle is opened.
The parallel with no parallel:
Of course, the 650 Twin is notable not only for its character, but also for its sound. Developing the right tone and burble from its twin silencers was an important goal during the engine’s creation. Whether at idle or at full chat, during over-run or while winding on the power, the exhaust note just oozes individuality
Framed like a picture:
Beauty is often overlooked in chassis design. But this new frame blends the authentic form of period classics with the superb handling and ride of modern engineering. The result is a chassis that’s nimble and precise, making for a pure and enjoyable ride. Whether on the Interceptor, or the Continental GT
