Royal Enfield Continental GT ABS version spied testing

Royal Enfield has commenced testing of the ABS version of the Continental GT in Europe. With this upgrade, the Continental GT will become the first Royal Enfield to feature this safety system.  

While the braking hardware is same as before, the disc now integrates an ABS ring. However, the motorcycle will also require other upgrades in the powertrain to reduce emissions and an auto headlamp on (AHO) feature to meet Euro IV norms. Considering that ABS and AHO are going to be mandatory feature for motorcycles sold in India in 2018 and 2017 respectively, we can expect this version to end up on our shores by next year. We aren’t sure if the ABS version will debut before the mandate kicks in, in April 2018, as it will drive up the cost significantly.

While its domestic sales continue to burgeon, Royal Enfield has now turned its focus towards international markets. Currently, the sales in Europe form a miniscule percentage of Royal Enfield’s overall numbers, though the company hopes to change this with its new models. Based on a parallel twin platform and targeted at the global audience, these models will rub shoulders with the Triumph and Harley-Davidson range.
