|What's that empty mount doing on the left side of the new Royal Enfield Continental GT?|
The PowerDrift riders evaluate the Continental GT from the point of view of The Enthusiast, The Tourer and The Racer. It's a lengthy review filled with stirring footage of the Continental GT posing, rambling over rocks, and cornering at full lean as if on a race course.
The overall verdict is positive of course, but the riders gather at the close and agree that the Continental GT's shortcoming is its engine — there needs to be more of it. The 535cc single is not enough.
"We are all happy; it's just the engine," one reviewer says.
"But there's another way to look at it," another says. The rest of the bike is up to more power. And there is a suspicious mount on the left-hand side that could be used for a second exhaust.
In other words, Royal Enfield is already accommodating a twin.
Maybe so. Either that or it's for the sari guard.
