    I was waiting for re to make such a bike which have the both sporty and retro looks.There are no words to describe this bike, it's just outstanding.Riding this bike is a pleasure and we won't feel to stop riding this bike while we start riding. 649cc parallel twin engine with 47.5 bhp and 52nm torque makes the bike thrice powerful than an ordinary royal enfield bullet.This bike gives us a very good confidence while cornering the bike.Even though public says that it's seating position is aggressive compared to the interceptor 650, the gt 650 is a wonderful bike for the riders who are looking for a sporty seating position.20-21 km/l is a nice mileage for the 650 cc bike.The bike is simply wonderful and outstanding for solo rides.Sounds that the twin exhausts produce is the other wonderful creation in this bike.It sounds like a super bike if u add an after market exhaust like aw or red rooster.Once again i thank royal efield for providence me such a marvelous machine.Thank you.....

    I have classic 350 gun metal grey., but i want continental for my leh trip.. I think this bike can fulfil my all choices specially fuel tank capacity and no vibration on handle bar. I do want such bike.I personally recommend to all, if there is no budget constraints, go with continental gt 650, that gives enough power to roam around difficult terrain.

    It's a charming mid range cafe racer with stability and higher durability little bit slower to its competitors but is too cool in its price range awesome only of its type in India in mid range of 4 lakhs just under powered for more comfortable engine performance and more appealing of its looks thank you royal enfield to have it but it's needed to be engineered for 350 also to have it in trend appeal.

    To start off this bike was never on my mind to buy. I had always wanted a harley softail and was contemplating buying it but due to a few other commitments had been putting off picking one up. I happened to spot the new re twins at a showroom and test rode the interceptor first and was really impressed. My cousin has the previous continental gt and i have ridden that bike and based on that didnt want to even consider the new gt. But i happened to ask for the gt keys as well and requested to test the bike by myself. Something about the grip and the weight of the bike and the new engine connected to my physically and instantly i knew i loved this bike in a second. I immediately put down a 10k deposit and booked the new gt 650 in a heartbeat. The next 20 days were spent watching every review and comparison available on youtube and instagram. I was lucky to get my bike within 20 days of having booked it. Have ridden it about 250 kms. I usually don't ride due to traffic and pollution concerns and always use my cars. In my opinion this bike is beautiful. The new engine and everything about the bike immediately makes a physical connection with you. It feels like a well fitting leather glove. It is quite heavy and would advice against parking it in an incline or on a slope or in any tight spot. I cant fully explain how much i like the new gt 650 and still am amazed re can make this bike this affordable. The quality is great and this bike is the perfect stepping stone for the new bikers who want a bigger engine. Its an easy bike to learn the discipline of owning a big bike. Learning about the importance of gear and boots will only happen on a large bike.200 kilos though not that heavy but still is quite a bit for our indian traffic and roads. Id suggest every harley street 750 buyer to check this one before buying that. It matches up and then some with every other bike in twice its price range. And well its made in india. As made in india should be. Beautiful bike and love it to a fault. If re launches an 800 or a bigger bike soon who is to say i may never dream of harley again. And i like looking at it a little more than riding it. On speed and specs i guess there are a million reviews out there. I haven't ridden it more than 120 but i think it'll do 160 to 170 with ease and stay on 150 all day. Ill never change the exhausts cause for me the bike needs to feel great more than sound. And i am quite against loud aftermarket exhausts. I don't like attention and prefer being unnoticed and am glad the bike is understated and yet perfectly beautiful. I would however in the near future want to replace my tyres to tubeless cause i cant imagine a flat on this bike. It doesn't heat up that much ... Is pretty stable in dead speed traffic and the riding position is not at all painful as some reviews have called it. A few days in the saddle will season you well. what more can i say. I guess this bike has some soul. Like a well set up guitar.. A well seasoned bat... A true modern day classic.Oh and fuel consumption i've mostly only ridden in dead traffic where i am barely out of 2nd gear and im getting about 20. Think that will be better in normal riding conditions.

    Royal enfield has outdone itself with the 650 twins. Fantastic performance for the price. There is no competition for these in india as well international markets. The torque is just perfect. Fantastic acceleration. Great sounding stock exhaust. Eye catching looks. No complaints whatsoever. Has been a fantastic experience overall. Kudos to royal enfield for bringing this to the consumers. Maintenance and service is hassle free. Purchased online and was delivered at the local dealership. Took 6.5 months for it because i wanted the chrome variant. But it was worth the wait. Special attention is given to all 650 owners in my opinion. Sales and service staff has been very courteous through the entire process.Spares costs are also low for a bike of it's caliber. Go for it if you want a sporty retro charm. The 650 prototype was built on the gt platform. So there is no doubt this is better than the interceptor in terms of handling and ergonomics. Interceptor is only a conversion of this model to a more commuter style motorcycle for those who would not want the slightly aggressive stance the gt has to offer. Truly "a ton of fun" in my opinion. Cheers!!
