With the introduction of the retro track-racing initiative, Royal Enfield says that it aims to nurture niche riding cultures in the country and open new avenues to real-world track racing. “With the increased interest in track-racing in India, the Continental GT Cup offers aspiring racers the opportunity to show and grow their skills on the top race circuits in India," said Adrian Sellers - Custom Programme Lead & Manager, Product Strategy & Industrial Design at Royal Enfield. 

Sellers added that the Continental GT 650 is the most track-ready motorcycle in Royal Enfield's portfolio. Its race-spec version - the Continental GT-R650 - comes with a few modifications, making it fit for track racing. The original Continental GT 250 was launched in 1964 and has come a long way to the GT 650 twin of today.
