Twin Cylinder continental GT tested in India :
Recently in a Royal Enfield test mule was spotted testing in Chennai with a 750cc Twin cylinder engine and two mate black exhaust canisters. Even with the rumors that the Continental GT‘s body is used only to test the new twin cylinder engine, which will power entirely new series of Royal Enfield motorcycles. There are been no official announcement yet. But with the huge investment of a 800 crore in their R&D it looks pretty convincing that Royal Enfield is ready to experiment with their designs.
