Royal Enfield

Ludhiana, September 22, 2021 (News Team):
Royal Enfield, the world’s oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, has always focused on encouraging and nurturing the culture of pure motorcycling for over 120 years. Over the years, Royal Enfield has been single-minded in its purpose to curate and enable unique motorcycling experiences for riding enthusiasts in their pursuit of exploration. Millions of aspiring motorcycle riders across the globe have been inducted into the world of simple and fun, leisure motorcycling with Royal Enfield’s enviable repertoire of rides and events - from the Himalayan Odyssey in Ladakh, India, to riding to the Mount Everest Base Camp in Tibet.

While Royal Enfield has been at the forefront of creating and growing the leisure riding culture, the brand has also been a significant part of niche motorcycling sub-cultures like endurance races, cross-country trails, road racing, among others. From resilient victories at International Six Day Trials competitions, to securing a podium position at the Daytona American Flat Track, to breaking the class speed record at Speed Week, South Australia, Royal Enfield has consistently evolved to nurture newer formats. The more recent foray into accessible flat-track racing with the Royal Enfield Slide School in Bangalore is a testament to this endeavour.

With an aim to further nurture niche riding cultures and open new avenues to real-world track racing, Royal Enfield today announces the debut of the Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup 2021 - a unique retro track-racing initiative. The Continental GT Cup sits at the intersection of increasing interest in motorcycle track racing, and the need for accessible forms of racing and training in India. Post the Continental GT Cup 2021 finale, Royal Enfield will also introduce track schools in India with an intent to provide easy and professional training access to eager enthusiasts who wish to learn motorcycle racing or simply want to improve their overall riding skills.

Presented by JK Tyre Motorsports and organized under the aegis of Federation of Motorsports Club of India (FMSCI), the Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup will debut at the JK National Racing Championship 2021, and will be conducted in accordance with the regulations of the FMSCI. The Continental GT Cup 2021 will have four rounds starting October 2021, culminating in January, 2022.

Commenting on the launch of the Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup, and speaking about Royal Enfield’s motivation to foray into motorsports, Adrian Sellers - Custom Programme Lead and Manager, Product Strategy and Industrial Design at Royal Enfield said, “Nurturing and encouraging the spirit of pure motorcycling has been the core philosophy of Royal Enfield for over a century. With a long history of rides and events that have spawned riding communities across the world, we have also actively engaged in racing, with success in top level racing events such as 1914 Isle of Man TT, the 1960 Big Bear Run, the 2020 Daytona at the American Flat Track, and the 2021 DTRA Flat Track ‘Twins Class’ Championship, among several others. In 2019, we developed two race ready Continental GT 650 motorcycles with Harris Performance, leveraging their 40 years of racing experience to make the most track worthy GTs we could, all without fundamentally changing the base motorcycles. The result exceeded our expectations, and so we are excited to continue that story and launch the Continental GT Cup, an exciting and engaging entry into retro track-racing and motorsports. With the increased interest in track-racing in India, the Continental GT Cup offers aspiring racers the opportunity to show and grow their skills on the top race circuits in India. The Continental GT 650 is the most track-ready motorcycle in our portfolio, and with just a few modifications, the race prepped Continental GT-R650 version makes it the ideal machine for the track. We are expecting a spectacular first season this year and we hope to foster the spirit of track-racing year-on-year.”

The Continental GT was the first factory built, production cafe racer and through the years has embodied the spirit of retro racing. Inspired by the British road-racing and cafe-to-cafe racing culture of the 1960s, the original Continental GT 250 was launched in 1964 and was quickly lauded as ‘Britain’s Fastest 250’. Sporting a bold red fiberglass tank complete with Monza filler cap, clip-on handlebars, rear-sets, flyscreen and a swept-back sports exhaust, the GT 250 was an accomplished, born-to-race street motorcycle. Starting with the 250 of the 1960s and continuing through the GT 535 of 2014 to the GT 650 twin of today, the Royal Enfield Continental GT has remained the quintessential cafe racer.

Those retro racing virtues are evident in the GT 650’s excellent road manners, which in recent times have proved to be a very capable platform for competition. In the recent years, the Continental GT 650 has definitely proved its mettle in the pursuit of speed In 2018, Cayla Rivas set a new land speed record of 157 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats on her specially tuned and modified Continental GT 650. The Nought Tea GT 650 was victorious in the 2019 Bike Shed Festival Cafe Racer Cup, with first and second places won by Royal Enfield riders Paul Young and Curtis Wright. Paul also won the Wheels and Waves Punks Peak sprint on the Sinroja Continental GT 650 and Curtis took second place riding the same GT at Glemseck 101.

The Continental GT 650 is a complete package. While in development, its simplicity, agility and reliability was proved during tens of thousands of hours of track testing. This compelled Royal Enfield to begin to dream of a same-make race series. Its excellent torque and power delivery combined with a superb chassis meant the Continental GT-R650 required few changes for track racing duty. With the GT Cup opening up real-world retro track racing in India, thousands of enthusiasts now have the opportunity to enjoy the full potential of the Continental GT.

The track-spec Continental GT-R650 has minimalistic, yet purpose-built performance modifications which offer an un-intimidating, agile and spirited performance on track. Furthermore, the simple, old-school build of the motorcycle makes it delightfully easier in terms of maintenance and repair, making it an ideal track tool that is easy for novices to learn on and an equally capable machine in the hands of experienced racers.

The GT-R650 boasts of a stiffer race-tuned suspension, both front and rear, for enhanced handling at higher speeds. Lowered race clip-on handlebars have been added along with rear-set footpegs for a race tuck, enhancing rider aerodynamics and enabling higher lean angles. The GT-R650 has been made lighter by 24 kgs by keeping only the essentials required for racing. The stock exhaust has been replaced with a bespoke stainless steel full system exhaust that is tuned to give 12% more power. The motorcycle will come with a specially designed fairing and belly pan that provides greater aerodynamics and gives the GT-R650 its quintessential retro racer look. The motorcycle will be equipped with soft compound race tyres by JK Tyres to ensure enhanced grip and braking while offering better cornering speed and feedback.

Commenting on this occasion, Srinivasu Allaphan, Director - Sales and Marketing, JK Tyre and Industries said, “Being the pioneers of promoting motorsport in India, JK Tyre has been at the forefront in formalizing the Indian racing programs and nurturing young talent in the country. Our National Racing Championship, which is India’s flagship racing championship, has now entered its 25th year. Over these years, the platform has not just produced world-class racers, but has also created a distinct podium for several auto manufacturers to put their machines and technologies to the ultimate test of endurance. We are ecstatic to now have Royal Enfield join us in our silver jubilee year. The Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup is definitely a step forward towards appealing to more racing aspirants and building access to the world of two-wheeler racing. We are confident that it will definitely give an added fillip to the ever-growing popularity of motorsport in India. We look forward to an exciting debut of the Royal Enfield Continental GT Cup 2021.”

Registration process for the Continental GT Cup goes live from 11:00 hrs today till 17:00 hrs. on September 30, 2021. From the registered participants, 100 eligible riders will make it to the Rider Selection Programme at Kari Motor Speedway, Coimbatore from October 18 to 19, 2021, where the 18 fastest riders will be shortlisted.

HDFC Mutual Fund

Ludhiana, August 31, 2021 (News Team):
As asset class winners keep changing, asset allocation is critical for wealth creation. HDFC Multi‐Asset Fund, which invests in 3 asset classes viz. Equity, Debt and Gold, aims to meet asset allocation needs of investors. Equity aims to provide capital appreciation, Debt aims to provide stability to the portfolio and Gold is a potential safe haven asset class, which also provides hedge against inflation and currency depreciation.

The HDFC Multi‐Asset Fund scheme invests between 10% to 30% of total assets in Debt instruments and 10% to 30% of Total Assets in Gold related instruments.

Amit Ganatra, Senior Fund Manager of HDFC Asset Management Company Limited (HDFC AMC) said, “Global as well as domestic growth prospects have been buoyed by accommodative monetary and fiscal policies, pent up demand recovery, vaccination drive and turnaround in corporate profitability. In India – corporate earnings cycle has turned around post Covid‐19 and a strong earnings cycle creates opportunities for investors to participate in equity as an asset class. However, there are also uncertainties around possible 3rd Covid‐19 wave, sustainability of recovery, potentially higher inflation and higher valuations post strong market rally. In this kind of an environment, Investors should consider asset allocation strategies as they not only ensure equity participation, but also aim to protect downside by exposure to other asset classes namely debt and gold.
