ROYAL EN­FIELD

Con­ti­nen­tal GT

With a chas­sis de­vel­oped by Har­ris Per­for­mance, it should come as no sur­prise that the Conti is a blast in the bends, how­ever the En­field’s weak link is its mo­tor. The sin­gle cylin­der is slightly larger in its ca­pac­ity than the Bul­let and has an elec­tric start and fuel in­jec­tion, but it vi­brates like hell and is lack­ing in power. If you want an au­then­tic 1960s café racer, this is about as close as it gets, but it feels pretty rudi­men­tary.
