Retro Racing At Its Purest

A racing format that harks back to a time when the only ingredients a rider depended on to succeed was his own ability, grit, and will. Simple, very capable and reliable machines that offered no electronic rider aids, making the slightest mistake unforgiving on the race track. It was a time when winning came second to the challenge, pure adrenaline rush and fun of competing. This is what motorcycle racing began as, this is what the GT cup is bringing back!

The Motorcycle

Continental GT-R650

Continental GT-R650

Royal Enfield has taken the nimble Continental GT 650 and turned it into an ideal track tool by tweaking the performance by 12%, stiffening the suspension, shedding 24 Kg and fitting a sleek race fairing. This ensures the competition-ready Continental GT-R650 is manageable for novices as well as being a potent, highly capable racer in the hands of experienced riders.

Fairing

Fairing

Designed in-house, the quintessential cafe racer half-fairing is made from race-pedigree fibre reinforced plastic, making it light and flexible yet rigid and gorgeous. The acrylic bubble screen provides greater aerodynamics and clear visibility while protecting the racer from buffeting at high speeds.

Exhaust

Exhaust

The bespoke designed, stainless steel exhaust system is tuned to give 12% more power than the stock setup. It reduces the overall weight and increases ground clearance and cornering ability.

Handlebar

Handlebar

Lighter and lowered race clip-ons tuck the rider down behind the fairing. Positioning the rider lower over the tank makes for better aerodynamics with a confident racer triangle.

Suspension

Suspension

The race-tuned front suspension with pre-load adjustability is re-valved for stiffer compression and rebound damping. Coupled with stiffer linear rated rear shocks from Gabriel, they provide race-ready handling, feel and confidence at high speeds.

Footpegs

Footpegs

Rear-sets replace the stock rider footpegs to position them better for enabling higher lean angles and provide an aerodynamic riding posture. This lets the riders get their knee down and nail the apex around every corner.

Tyres

Tyres

Soft Compound Race Tyres by JK Tyre for enhanced grip and braking allowing better cornering speed and feedback.
