The 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 Café Racer has to be among the most awaited bikes of recent times. It has almost always been known that the Cafe Racer would first go on sale in UK, where the bike could be launched around mid-September. Now, it is being said that the bike would enter Indian bike market in October, just a month after its UK debut.

The much hyped Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 aka Cafe Racer is looking all set to become the fastest-ever production bike from Royal Enfield. The bike will also become the lightest production RE of recent times. The GT 535 will be built around a lightweight, double cradle frame that will help in keeping the weight under a check. The upcoming bike is expected to be as much as 15kgs lighter than the Thunderbird 500 TBTS.

Powering the Continental GT 535 will be a single cylinder 535cc UCE engine that will boast of a bigger throttle body and a larger piston (than the 500cc UCE motors). The new 535cc mill will also have a remapped ECU and a lighter flywheel. All this would bestow the bike with enough juice to have a 150kmph-plus top whack and decent in-gear acceleration. The bike will be shod with Pirelli tyres and will sport a pair of Paioli gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. As can be seen in the pics, the bike will have disc brakes on both the wheels.

    Yes, I remember the RE 350 ccs, this was my first bike at 21.It was a fun bike at that time 35 years ago. High time the RE has a complete new look,new engineering and at least new technology. This old world war 2 work horse hasn’t changed much. All we see is old wine in old bottles.
