We’ve written about the attempt that Royal Enfield wanted to make at the Bonneville Speed Week, and we’re happy to report that the company has managed a new record in the applicable category. However, the speed is yet to be certified by the FIM, but the top speed figure stands at 241kph, or an even 150mph.
The Continental GT 650 that managed the record wasn’t a stock motorcycle, being based on the LockStock that was displayed in May, with nitrous oxide, an extended wheelbase and a hardtail frame part of the setup. It managed do over 20 runs over the week, and hit a top speed of over 241kph. Cayla Rivas was the rider for the attempt. The 18-year old also happens to be the previous record-holder for the class, which stood at 212kph.
