WELCOME TO THE DARKSIDE

The updated Continental GT 650 takes its inspiration from the 1970s era of British motorcycling, with its cast alloy wheels and blacked-out aesthetic. Alongside its classically-styled, ‘50s and ‘60s-inspired predecessors, it recaptures the spirit of the cafe racer culture of the time and that of our own Continental GT 250. With its sculpted tank, eager attitude and tucked-in riding position, it carries all the hallmarks of a traditional café racer, making it perfect for carving up the back roads or having a ton of fun in the city.

All Black

The new, all-black Continental GT 650 streamlines the retro café racer with its subtle yet stylish aesthetic. The blacked-out engine and exhaust fuse seamlessly with the machine’s chassis, keeping the spotlight on its tank for a look that is guaranteed to make hearts race and heads turn.

Peace of Mind

The new Continental GT Dark also comes complete with LED Headlight, Premium switch cubes, USB port, Striking cast alloy wheels with tubeless tyres, giving you peace of mind even on long rides.

Ton of Fun

The frame of the motorcycle, developed in conjunction with the legendary Harris Performance, has been thoroughly tested for durability and offers superior balance and handling. Together with a finely tuned suspension featuring ‘piggy-back’ gas-charged twin shocks, the chassis ensures that the GT 650 is a dynamic, lively and agile ride.

The Parallel with no parallel

Of course, the 650 Twin is notable not only for its character, but also for its sound. Developing the right tone and burble from its twin silencers was an important goal during the engine’s creation. Whether at idle or at full chat, during over-run or while winding on the power, the exhaust note just oozes individuality.

The result is a chassis that’s nimble and precise, making for a pure and enjoyable ride. Whether on the Interceptor, or the Continental GT.
