    Royal Enfield Continental GT 650: Your questions answered
    Listen to this Article

    The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 is one of the first models to debut the company’s 648cc parallel-twin motor. It is also among the few cafe racer-style bikes currently available in India. This concoction makes it a niche motorcycle, and here are answers to some common questions.

    How quickly can the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 go from 0 to 100kph?

    In our tests, the BS6 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 managed the 0-100kph sprint in 6.45 seconds. That’s a respectable time for a 47hp, 214kg motorcycle and is 0.4 seconds quicker than its roadster sibling, the Interceptor 650. 

    Can newer, shorter riders manage the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650?

    The Continental GT 650 isn’t very powerful or unwieldy, but it's also not beginner-friendly. Its committed ergonomics, hefty kerb weight and considerable engine heat demand that riders bring a certain level of skill to the table. If you have a shorter stature, the first two problems will only be exacerbated. 

    What is the fuel economy of the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650?

    On the highway, the GT 650 returned 33.30 kmpl, while in urban areas it managed 26.40 kmpl. Considering it's equipped with a large-capacity, old-school, air/oil-cooled motor propelling a big motorcycle, these numbers seem fair enough. It also has a smaller 12.5-litre fuel tank compared to the Interceptor’s 13.7-litre unit.

    What colour options are available on the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650?

    Typical of most Royal Enfield models, the Continental GT 650 is available in a myriad of color options. The most affordable choices are Rocker Red and British Racing Green, priced at Rs 3.19 lakh. The dual-tone Dux Deluxe is priced at Rs 3.29 lakh. Apex Grey and Slipstream Blue, which come with blacked-out features, alloy wheels, and tubeless tires, are priced at Rs 3.39 lakh, while the most expensive option, Mr. Clean, features a chrome tank and costs Rs 3.45 lakh. 

    All priced ex-showroom, Chennai. 

    Can the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 seat two people?

    Yes, it comes standard with a regular seat that accommodates both rider and passenger. The bike can also be equipped with a solo seat cowl, which is quite common and enhances the cafe racer aesthetic.
