So what are your thoughts on this

Saw one today.

Maybe an age thing, but it really floats my boat.

Royal Enfield Continental GT.

I like it. Maybe it's the combination of chrome and red paint again that does it for me. I bet it sounds nice too. The name is a bit odd. I bet it's great for pop pop popping into town but it's no continental grand tourer.


Would I be a rocker on it, or a hipster?
:winkie:

Age thing

I don't think it's an age thing. I wouldn't have one but I think it looks pretty good.

You`ll  need balls of steel, good teeth fillings for the vibes, £5k and a big tool box with an electrician thrown in.:shock: 

Should be ok for a female rider though.:shock:

Looks lovely, but................

That does look nice, but apart from the looks there's not much to recommend it.  The modern Enfield engines aren't too powerful, and I doubt the handling matches the looks, then we come to the brakes!

 

If that floats your boat, why not invest the same sort of money in an original (sic) Triton or something similar.  You'll get rid of the depreciation (should appreciate instead), get free road tax, no MOT requirement (if built pre 1960), cheap classic insurance, better street cred and a more rideable bike.

 

Just my two pennorth,

The front brake and caliper on this is Brembo,

The dealer was at great pains to point that out to me,

I should imagine the set up is adequate for this size, power and weight,
