    Royal enfield gt is an amazing ride which gives you thrill with great mileage. The sound and vibration is annoying at times. Also, i felt the numbness in the first two to three weeks in my hands. When, i bought this bike i was initially disappointed with the faulty wiring. But i got it fixed as soon as possible. It has a great handling, amazing brakes and it is always a pleasure riding this bike. The only annoying thing about royal enfield continental gt is the engine coming off from my 'hd iron 883', this (conti gt) vibrates like anything.

    The first & foremost thing about conti gt is that, it's not for loose hearted chaps. This bike tests your calibre every now and then throughout its journey with you.Its will test your physical ability to withstand its vibrations on high revs,back pain due to aggressive sitting stance,challenging long distance rides.Financial readiness to fulfil its fuel appetite and maintenance cost. You could get a really quick bike well within the on-road price of this machine.You may find more suitable features in other bikes as compared to gt. But riding and owning a gt is a honour in itself.Those who are thinking of mileage, maintenance cost,relaxed daily commute etc..Etc..This machine is not for you.If you think of going for conti. Gt think for life less ordinary!Pro's and con's of gt Pro's- you are no more ordinary with is bike.Heads turner styling. 535 cc bike within 2.25 lakh(basic accessories ), with pirelli tyres,brembo breaks, pioli suspensions.Tremendous city and short distance riding experience. Con's- waiting period for spares,single seater,poor quality rubber hosing on machine,uncomfortable for long distance rides with vibrations.Expect sudden break down. Service cost on higher side.No abs (though latest models have it) its not oil cooled its air cooled so gets heated a lot.

    1. Bought it used,

    2. There are some vibrations, but once you start the ride its a amazing machine, the

    motor has a lot of torque.

    3. Looks wise it is the attention seeker, everybody will give it a second look. The

    performance is amazing, handles corners very well. Fast enough ( does a max of

    150)

    4. The terrible part is related to the service experience, the service centres are just

    not capable to handle it. Being a rare model, at times getting some uncommon

    spares would be tough. The oil change interval seems to short. ( use motul 5100

    for better performance and vibes free ride

    5. Pros : very good looking, powerful, excellent handling.

    cons : bad service centres, limited tyre options ( mrf 120/80 is very good if

    maintained the company spec pressure)

    Buying experience- when i went to the showroom, they said its not a bike, its a machine(i was like “ “oh! common bro” ). I was so confused whether i go for it or not.

    Riding experience - i owned this beauty 6 months ago, when it comes to smooth riding? its a beauty, when it comes to 0-100 kmph its a 'beast', for first few days or km's, you will feel dis-comfortable, once you understood the accent, you will start loving this beauty, smooth in ride(at low rpm), people will look at your bike (not you), roar is awesome, its a perfect package of power, comfort,etc.

    About bike- cafe-racer!! its a rare bike, you will get attention when you are awaiting green signal, people will look a you. 0-100 kmph is less than 10 sec (i tested and confirmed), the build of bike is heavy and strong, you will feel like a king while riding. On bad roads, you will be happy with the suspension (perilli) and brakes (brembo). Bike follows your commands. At high speed you can feel the comfort. Best handling for corners and quick turns.

    Servicing and maintenance - as conti is equipped with the traditional royal enfield engine, the maintenance is normal, affordable for your pocket, if you have knowledge of bikes and engines, you need to look at the tuning of your bike at service centres as they will down the pick-up power, service centres are also good, they will help you with your questions and doubts.

    Pros -

    - rare .

    - riding quality.

    - worth for every single penny.

    - durable.

    - powerful engine and strong build.

    - easy to custom.

    Cons -

    -vibrations(those who don't like).

    - palm will start paining if you don't wear gloves and if you don't follow arch sitting position.

    When you just begin to think that you can't expect something new from the old fashioned bullets that's where this hunk kicks in.

    Totally worth the price go for it.

    A little less on the mileage but great power comes at a price.

    Perfectly stable.

    Totally changed my concept about the old fashioned bullets will change yours too.

    Really good motorcycle from royal enfiled. Recently i had an issue with back suspension my right side piaoli suspension seal is broken and lost control when take right corners. I contacted 2 districts service centres but they don't have spare. At-last i get the spare from one service centre which is so far away from my home. They help me to claim warranty and give me good service.

    Only drawback is that spare availability.

    Now i changed my tyres back is metzler 140/18 and front is pirelli
