The standard 500cc Bullet engine has been increased to 535cc, and with a larger throttle body and hotter cam it boosts an additional 1.9hp bringing it to around 29HP. The new chassis is sportier than the standard Bullet, and has a double down tube frame and longer swing arm. The suspension consists of a non-adjustable 38mm Gabriel fork and twin preload and rebound-adjustable Paioli shocks. A Brembo front brake and full-floating disc provide a serious upgrade in stopping power. To top it off, the Cafe Racer has a claimed weight of 365-lbs, which is 46-lbs less than the standard C5 Classic. The Royal Enfield Continental GT is the lightest, fastest, most powerful Royal Enfield in production. A machine with a story, a nod to motorcycling's finest hour; a painstaking collaboration. It is also the best expression yet of a cultural phenomenon that has simply refused to fade away - the cafe racer.
