Royal Enfield launched the new Continental GT 650 (one of the first two 'modern' twin-cylinder motorcycles from the brand) at a starting price of Rs 2.65 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi). The cafe-racer Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 managed to attain a lot of fans since the very moment it was first unveiled to the world back in 2017.
In case you wish to buy one, you should definitely check out our detailed review of the Continental GT 650.
The new Royal Enfield Continental GT (and the Interceptor 650) is especially loved for its parallel-twin exhaust note. In its stock format itself, the motorcycle sounds good even though it is heavily toned-down to meet the industry norms. However, various motorcycle specialists have started developing custom exhaust systems for the new 650cc Royal Enfield models.
Here is such an example from AEW Performance. Conveniently enough, the video compares the custom unit's exhaust note with that of the stock system. We recommend you to grab your earphones.
The AEW exhaust for the Continental GT 650 has noticeably got a deeper base; promising some nice pops during overruns.
We recently shared a video of an aftermarket exhaust system for the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, developed by Kerala-based Grid7 Customs — check out the exhaust note and see if it's better than this one.
The new Royal Enfield '650 Twins' are powered by a 649cc air/oil-cooled parallel-twin engine that makes 47bhp and 52Nm of torque. This is further mated to a six-speed gearbox assisted by a slipper-clutch.
The 650 Twins are arguably two of the best value-for-money motorcycles available in the price bracket and showcases class-leading levels of build quality and desirability. As of now, there are no direct rivals to the parallel-twin Royal Enfields and for the same reason, they have created a market of their own.
Thoughts On The Continental GT 650's Custom Exhaust Note
Parallel-twin classic motorcycles have a charm of their own thanks to their sweet-sounding engine note. A good aftermarket exhaust bumps this up to a greater level. In a few months' time i.e. when deliveries of the 650 Twins go full-fledged, there will be more choices of custom exhausts on the market. Even Royal Enfield itself might introduce one.
