The Royal Enfield Continental GT draws inspiration from the café racers and culture from the 1950s and ’60s—that much should be obvious from its profile consisting of clip-on bars, double cradle frame, twin shocks, and air-/liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. What may not be so obvious is this motorcycle’s chassis is well balanced and stable while the engine produces plentiful low-end torque. Whether riding your favorite canyon roads or taking the tightest street corners, beginner or novice riders will have fun tucking in aboard this vintage-styled machine.

Last year we reported that the Continental GT’s 270-degree crank “provides gobs of quick-revving torque that makes the engine surprisingly fun to use, whether it’s zipping you out of tight traffic spots or blasting down your favorite twisty road.”

Shoppers interested in Royal Enfield’s Continental GT will also look to the INT650 or up the displacement totem pole to the likes of the Kawasaki W800, BMW R nineT, or Triumph Thruxton 1200 R.
