The potential Continental 750 by royal enfield !!

The much rumoured 750cc parallel twin engine by Royal Enfield was spotted undergoing testing in the chassis of the Continental GT. The potential Continental 750, was spotted testing in Spain, and the engine is speculated to go under production by 2017.

RE seems to be back at it now, this time testing out a new 750cc parallel twin motor that would catapult the brand into the big leagues. The motor was spotted testing in one of RE’s test mules in Spain. 

What RE has done, is extended the chassis of a Continental GT, to fit the larger engine (a Continental 750 maybe?). We also know that the chassis already had a provision for a twin exhaust setup which was seen on the test bike. The bike was spotted in Spain, with the British development team in sight.

RE has also been roping in some top developers and designers of the motorcycling world. The designers responsible for the Continental GT, also worked on the Triumph Daytona 675. The company stated that it will be focusing on the 250-750cc category for the next five years at least, before moving up or down. A production version of the 750cc engine is expected to be seen by 2017, and the finished product should go on sale by 2018 in India.
