You will fall in love with this beauty.

2 years ago by Chandrakant2,200 views

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.

    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.

    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.Tips for royal enfield continental gt. 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.

    Continental gt is an unmatched engine better than any royal enfield available till now i had driven it on orrisa tour 5000km in seven days and the performance was spectacular and unmatched.The maintenance and performance was really cool .You just change oil in time and keep the tyres of this bike along with break pads in proper shape the bike will bring smile on your face everytime you ride. It just a super royal enfield.

    Good looking bike, good to be a 2nd 'for pleasure' bike. Not practical for commuting on traffic laden streets, but amazing for highways and medium distance ride. For long distance, touring, may not be comfortable for most, because of the crouched riding stance.Best enjoyed in the single seater version, though with relevant mods, can be made comfortable for the pillion too. Amazing handling on curves and bends on tarmac. Great pickup/ torque. Not meant for speeds beyond 120 kmph. Needs care and attention, but performs to satisfaction.
