    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)

    This is my favourite sporty bike and i am gone buy this one within 2-3 months. Riding experience is the most beautiful and comfort one. Look absolutely perfect for single ride and couple ride to. No maintenance at all. Its runs like horse and the 500cc engine makes the perfect way to travel long distance.

Don't keep it standing, lube the chain regularly,keep an eye on battery condition, always carry a tool kit and first aid,halt for 15-20 min to cool down after every 1 hrs of fast riding.

    I am car designer by profession and have always been fascinated about enfields. When i first saw the gt i knew i had to own one. Sadly i wasn't around much due to work and that's the reason she didn't clock them kilometers. She's a scratch-less beauty and i have kept her that way ever since the day i got her home. I have managed to keep the bike stock except for the free flow exhaust. I have attached reflectors on the front forks as that on the export model making it stand out from the lot. I really don't want her to go but as i cant be around all the while to cater her, i am looking forward to a passionate rider who can take her home and keep her thumping. Its serviced from time to time.

    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

    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.
