This modified Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 does not get an extreme makeover but gets some subtle changes with the aftermarket accessories. 


The front-end, for example, features a grille with a horizontal pattern. The headlight is accompanied by aftermarket LED blinkers that replace the conventional, stock unit. The ergonomics have also been revised, and the handlebars are positioned lower than the standard motorcycle for a more forward-leaning riding stance. The aftermarket levers offer the convenience of adjustability. The front brake oil reservoir also gets a custom cover with Diablo branding. A pair of round, bar-end mirrors enhance the retro look of the motorcycle.


At the rear, the modified Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 features an aftermarket tail light and LED blinkers. It is equipped with an aftermarket exhaust that enhances the sound from the parallel twin cylinder engine. The saddle, too, is an aftermarket unit.  All other details remain identical to the standard motorcycle. The shock absorption department continues to feature conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided springs at the rear. Anchoring power comes from disc brakes on both ends, while the safety net includes dual-channel ABS. Changes to the performance numbers after the installation of aftermarket exhaust are not mentioned. The stock model's 648 cc parallel-twin, air-cooled engine, which comes mated to a six-speed gearbox, churns out 47 BHP and 52 Nm of torque.
