The upcoming Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 has managed to hit the speed record of 241kph at the Bonneville Salt Flats, USA. The record is waiting to get certified by the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme)
In addition to this achievement, 18-year-old rider Cayla Rivas managed to complete 20 runs on the motorcycle.
The record creator is based on the soon to-be-launched Continental GT 650. The machine is equipped with custom suspension (which appears to be an Öhlins-sourced USD with a steering damper) and a hard-tail.
The motorcycle is built by Harris and it appears to have more aerodynamic bodywork, and a different frame and swing arm. The exhaust on the motorcycle has S&S branding. A nitrous oxide seat can been seen below the tank.
The production model employs a 648cc, air-cooled, parallel-twin engine that makes 47hp and 52Nm of torque and the engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox and uses a slip-assist clutch.
