In­ter­ested in the Conti GT

Bike India - - READERS WRITE -

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.bikein­ 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.
