More details on the Royal Enfield 750cc bike have finally come to light! The upcoming 750cc RE Continental will rival the likes of Harley-Davidson Street 750. Speculations abound that the bike you see in the images we here are actually the upcoming Continental 750 cc model in its production form. While we aren’t too sure of these claims, it’s for sure that the launch of a bigger Conti GT is very much in the offing. Expect the 2017 Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 cc to have a launch price of Rs 3.5 Lakh in India.
The launch date of the upcoming 750cc Royal Enfield is likely to first happen in the UK. The bigger Conti GT will become the flagship model from the iconic Indian bike manufacturer. Even the India launch should happen in mid-2018. Given the iconic status that Royal Enfield enjoys in India, the Continental GT 750 cc should take on the highly revered bikes from Harley Davidson. If nothing else, the 750cc GT should become a worthy upgrade for current RE owners.

The RE Conti GT 750 cc should launch in Europe first. In Europe, the new Royal Enfield motorcycle could go on sale in coming months.

It’s pretty much for sure that the 750cc Continental GT will cost lesser than comparable imports. We’re expecting an ex-showroom price of Rs 3.5 Lakh. At this price point, the Continental GT 750cc model will have the highest price for any Royal Enfield motorcycle. Currently, the Harley-Davidson Street 750 has a sticker price of Rs 4.5 lakh (ex-showroom). Hence, it’s possible that the RE Conti GT 750 would have a great price advantage over its immediate rivals.
