Royal Enfields have always suffered from a lack of basic need — power. Although the engines are torquey, power output in the form of horsepower is something that steers customers looking for a powerful motorcycle away.
Now, thanks to MotoMax, an Australian company, the performance of the Continental GT has been improved. So what did MotoMax do? They fit a turbocharger from a Suzuki Jimny, that has boosted the power output, as well as doubled the torque of the motorcycle.
As per original specs, the Royal Enfield Continental GT produces 29bhp and 44Nm of torque, and after the turbocharger modification, the power now delivered at the rear wheel is 42bhp. The Continental GT T, as the company calls the motorcycle, also gets a Power Commander V with an Auto-Tune module.
Other interesting bits on the Continental GT T are the brush metal paint finish for the Royal Enfield badges on the tank, chopped front mudguard, custom wrap for the exhaust, new clip-on bars, lowered instrumentation cluster, and a new seat.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT T was showcased as part of Australia's 31 Day Custom Bike Build Off challenge, and the whole build was done in 60 hours!
