    Hey there ! I had booked my GT 650 bs6 custom in the month of march 2020 and got its delivery in may 2020 ! Buying experience wasn't so smooth due to covid !! But the bike , i must tell you is a bomb !! I've ridden 2022 km since i bought the bike and find it absolute a gem of a creation !! Initially in the first week of the purchase i faced a bit of back pain and wrist pain but it faded away once i got used to the bike at roughly after 150-200km of riding it !! Bow i can travel atleast 1000 km at a stretch without any hassle ! The looks of the bikes are just superb !! Perfect blend of sporty and old school !! Its a heritage motorcycle after-all !! Performance is top notch !! Whichever gear you are in , you need not downshift in order to overtake swiftly !! Such is the torque !! Pickup is almost instantaneous !! You need to really hold tight of the tank or else you will fall !!! I've had my first service by 500km and its really cheap to maintain !! Just 2500 rs !
    Pros :-
    1) Enough power for city and highway
    2) Almost instantaneous pickup
    3) Headturner , people on signals or stops are curious to know which bike it is !!
    4) great cornering abilities !! Better than interceptor
    5) really grippy tyres !!
    6) Pretty good mileage in city and highway considering a 650cc engine !!
    7) Too stylish to look at and is timeless
    8) Sweet exhaust note .
    9) adjustable rear suspension .
    Cons :-
    1) Aggressive riding position takes time to get used to !
    2) Due to aggressive riding position , wrist and back pain are inevitable .
    3) Due to dual exhaust , traffic filtering is a bit tough for rookies !
    4) If the bike tilts in standstill position then it cant be dealt , you will surely encounter a fall !
    5) Small fuel tank capacity !
    6) Really heavy at 230 plus kg (wet weight)
    7) Mirrors visibility isn't that great !! Blind spots are not visible .
    8) Fogging issue in speedometer!!

    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.

    The buying experience was quite comfortable. Royal enfield also provides good customer service Riding is so good in this bike..Good horse power,good balance,weight is a bit more but its not an issue while riding it.The bike is very attractive with its unique look and style with good performance in city as well as highways .Re provides good service and maintenance.The cost is also affordable .This bike give you a bit back pain during long rides for a 100 km or more..But that's not an issue if you are taking rest in between .And weight is a bit issue for some peoples(not during riding .Sometimes in parking ) you will get a mileage around 23 to 25 .Overall perfect bike for a re lover at this price along with attractive look .

    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.
