2020 Royal Enfield Continental GT

Like the Royal Enfield INT650, the Continental GT features classic styling and an amiable engine, but with a café racer vibe.

The Royal Enfield Continental GT draws inspiration from the café racers and culture from the 1950s and ’60s—that much should be obvious from its profile consisting of clip-on bars, double cradle frame, twin shocks, and air-/liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. What may not be so obvious is this motorcycle’s chassis is well balanced and stable while the engine produces plentiful low-end torque. Whether riding your favorite canyon roads or taking the tightest street corners, beginner or novice riders will have fun tucking in aboard this vintage-styled machine.

Last year we reported that the Continental GT’s 270-degree crank “provides gobs of quick-revving torque that makes the engine surprisingly fun to use, whether it’s zipping you out of tight traffic spots or blasting down your favorite twisty road.”

Shoppers interested in Royal Enfield’s Continental GT will also look to the INT650 or up the displacement totem pole to the likes of the Kawasaki W800, BMW R nineT, or Triumph Thruxton 1200 R.

2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500

Royal Enfield’s Bullet 500 is one of the motorcycles that have been in production the longest. It brings classic styling in a pure and simple ride.

The Bullet 500 is a significant motorcycle in a sense that it is one of the longest running motorcycles to be in continuous production since its introduction in 1932. No, it doesn’t have the latest tech or most power, but it brings the rider back to the quintessential era of motorcycling that is pure and simple—and that’s who it is geared for, those looking for a pure and simple ride. From the hand-painted fuel tank to the halogen bulb, or the 499cc single-cylinder engine to the electric/kick starter, the Bullet has character and soul. As we have stated in the past, you can “click into fifth gear on the road and it feels like five decades ago; cruising under 65 mph gives just enough ‘space’ between combustion events and is one of the simple joys.”

2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

The Bullet 500 was badged as one of ten motorcycles with soul and character by Cycle World staff. One of the main attractions being the single’s sound. “Essential elements of a big (formerly) British Single? The ‘Beat,’ as Royal Enfield calls it. It’s that sound that booms out as if emanating from the bowels of the Earth.”

Buyer’s interested in the Bullet 500 may also look toward Royal Enfield’s own Classic 500, the Honda Rebel 500, Kawasaki W800, Yamaha V Star 125, or Suzuki VanVan.
