Royal Enfield is reportedly working on an even sportier Continental GT 650

Reports suggest that the cafe-racer will receive alloy wheels and an inverted front fork in 2024.

The Continental 650 and Interceptor 650 have essentially thrust Royal Enfield into the global spotlight since their debuts back in 2018. The brand had a respectable following in Europe and Asia before the release of these bikes, and classic enthusiasts favored its retro-styled models. Although the 650 Twins are undeniably traditional in nature, they incorporated some rather contemporary performance technology.

Naturally, anyone can appreciate a motorcycle with contemporary features like ABS, electronic fuel injection, and most importantly, dependability. You have a winning formula when you combine classic styling with an incredibly low price. In fact, Royal Enfield has successfully maintained strong sales of the bikes over the past five years by only occasionally producing special editions and changing the colors.

As a result, it is not at all surprising that rumors have been circulating once more. These improvements may in fact be anticipated by the components we see in the Super Meteor 650, as word on the street is that RE is preparing to release significant updates to the 650 model line, particularly to the sporty Continental GT. At this point, it's crucial to remember that Royal Enfield has not yet made any announcements on the 650 range, so all we can do is speculate. However, it is predicted by numerous sources that the bike will surface in time for the 2024 model year.

So, what can we actually anticipate? Numerous sources have made the intriguing prediction that the next Continental GT 650 would be fitted with alloy wheels and perhaps even the Super Meteor's inverted front forks. If the new generation Cafe Racer is outfitted with these parts, enhanced handling is likely to result immediately from lower unsprung weight. Tubeless tires and alloy wheels both include greater alternatives for tire replacement for improved performance.

Since Royal Enfield started a one-make racing series centered on the sporty classic, the Continental GT has had a lengthy history in the world of motorsports. In fact, if these improvements materialize, the new Continental GT 650 Royal Enfield may become its most performance-oriented model yet.
