Autologue café racer kit for RE GT 650 will consist of a quarter fairing and a newly designed seat cowl positioned over the dual seat
Autologue design is coming up with a new café racer styled quarter fairing and a new seat cowl that will be positioned over the dual seat for the Continental GT 650. The kit will also get a new drilled styled side panel quarter fairing as well. Apart from designing and adding the new quarter fairing to the front of the motorcycle, there are no other cosmetic changes made to the motorcycle.
Royal Enfield launched the 650 twins late last year in India and it has received quite a positive response from the people. Among the Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor 650, the latter is more popular among the people because it has a more relaxed riding position compared to the more committed position of the Continental GT 650. The Continental GT 650 gets clip-on handlebars and rear set footpegs which give the motorcycle a sporty and aggressive riding stance.
Autologue design has not released the final design and is still working behind perfecting the fairing and the seat cowl. They are even planning to make sure that this quarter fairing can also be fitted to the Continental GT 535 as well. The quarter fairing of the café racer will protect the rider from heavy wind blast especially while riding on the highways.
The Continental GT 650 is powered by a 648 cc, twin cylinder, fuel injected, SOHC unit. This unit paired with a 6-speed gearbox produces about 47 bhp of peak power at 7,250 rpm and 52 Nm of torque at 5,250 rpm. It is the fastest motorcycle the Royal Enfield lineup and thus also needs a good pair of brakes to bring it to a halt.
The motorcycle uses a 320 mm single disc brake at the front and a 240 mm disc at the rear. A dual channel ABS is also offered as standard for the safety of the rider along with slip-assist clutch. The motorcycle relies on conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear.
