Apart from the retuned ECU, the motorcycle comes with aluminium rear-set footpegs from Harris Performance. The previous iteration of the motorcycle weighs 25 kg less than the stock Continental GT 650. The big chunk of the weight reduction comes from the new stainless steel exhaust system which is not legal and is only meant for race track use. The exhaust alone saves a massive 16.5 kg. Different clip-on handlebars are now being used that are lower and provide a more aggressive riding posture to the rider. The new clip-ons are also made by Harris Performance. Despite all the weight reductions, the GT-R 650 still weighs around 190 odd kgs.

Because the motorcycle is now faster, it needs better braking power. Royal Enfield has upgraded the front brake caliper, it now gets heat-insulated pistons and a more aggressive brake pad material. The stock motorcycle is already using sintered brake pads. Then there are the soft-compound tyres that are sourced via JK Tyres. The stock motorcycle is known for its soft suspension setup. For racing, Royal Enfield also upgraded the suspension setup to be on the firmer side.
