It has emerged that Royal Enfield has commenced serial production of the eagerly awaited Continental GT 535 aka Cafe Racer at its Oragadam manufacturing facility. As we told you earlier, the Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 will be first launched in the United Kingdom amd is expected to be here by October this year.
The much awaited Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 aka Cafe Racer is looking ready to become the fastest-ever mass produced bike from Royal Enfield ever. The bike has 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.
The Continental GT 535 will be powered by 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. The upcoming 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 Cafe Racer, in all possibility, would be priced a little above INR 2 lakhs in Indian bike market.
