The Continental GT250 was the first factory-built, production cafe racer, and it has embodied the spirit of retro racing over the years. This season, Royal Enfield has kept everything under the skin of the Continental GT 650 stock motorcycle and has minimally modified the bike with a retro fairing, stiffer suspension, a more committed riding posture, and track-ready stainless steel exhausts. Harris Performance, which has over 40 years of motorcycle racing experience, has improved the Continental GT-R650 this year.
