The Modern Café Racer: The 2020 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650

The 2020 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 is a celebration of Royal Enfield’s pivotal role in the emergence of the British café racer scene in the 1950s and 1960s. This new reimagining of the cult classic Continental GT 250 takes inspiration from those iconic café racers of that golden age, with a few significant upgrades to haul the Continental GT into the 21st century.

Aesthetically, it ticks all the right boxes, drawing inspiration directly from the cult styling of the early café racer scene. It has a less-is-more attitude and stripped-down nature, with all of the necessary café race parts. Clip-on handlebars and a bump-stop seat come as standard, with cleverly positioned footpegs that give riders an aerodynamic riding position. The tank features knee-recesses for an authentic, crouched-riding experience.

It looks the part, and handles like a dream, but the often-overlooked engine is the unsung hero of the Continental GT 650’s success. It features a new 648cc parallel-twin engine that produces a modest 47 horsepower and 38.3 lb-ft of peak torque, delivering power when and where you need it for a variety of riding situations. If you need to deal with the intricacies of traffic-laden city traffic, it performs excellently—but if you need to give it some gas on the open road, it’s more than capable there too.

The 2020 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 comes with five available color options: Mister Clean, Black Magic, Dr. Mayhem, Ice Queen, and Ventura Blue. Starting prices range from $5,999 to $6,749 depending on the color options.
