Interested in the Conti GT
I’m a big fan of Bike India. It has really helped me in learning a lot as I have a passion for motorcycles. I would like to read some good reviews of Royal Enfield’s Continental GT, especially since as I’m looking forward to getting one for myself. A lot of people have been talking about vibrations and riding discomfort. I would really like to know the truth from you as regards the mileage and performance issues. Thank you. Manu G Nair, Thiruvananthapuram Hello, Manu,
We published a comprehensive road test review of the Royal Enfield Continental GT in the December 2013 issue. You can also find it on our website (www.bikeindia.in). We also have the Conti GT as part of our long-term fleet, so you can catch our thoughts on this motorcycle on a regular basis in the ‘BI Garage’ section. The vibrations and riding discomfort, as you correctly mention, have been reported by many users of the Continental GT; however, there is also a school of thought that believes these attributes add to the bike’s character. We would suggest you get hold of the bike for a test-ride to get a feel for it and decide for yourself if it suits your needs.
