It features a new seat and there is provision to keep the tool kit under the seat. The side panels have been changed and the rear has a naked look due to the shorter tail section and removal of registration plate and rear mudguard. Exhaust has been updated as well and the motorcycle features a shorter front mudguard. Suspension setup has been updated as well.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT Grey Hound gets inverted front fork and Paioli shock absorber at rear. Due to the new suspension, this motorcycle appears with increased ground clearance. It runs on multi-spoke wheels wrapped with new dual purpose tyres. Braking duty is done by disc brakes at both ends.

Power source for the Royal Enfield Continental GT is a 535 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a 5-speed transmission. The engine is capable of churning out 29.1 bhp of peak power and 44 Nm of impressive peak torque. It is not clear if the customisation shop has updated the engine to deliver more power and torque. Currently the Chennai-based motorcycle manufacturer is working on a 750 cc twin-cylinder engine powered Continental GT, that will be the flagship model from the brand upon arrival.
