Essentially, the bike is the usual 535cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled fuel-injected motor that’s used in the firm’s Continental GT that kicks out 29.1bhp @ 5,100rpm and 44Nm of torque @ 4,400rpm.

Here’s what we can make out from the show pictures run on Indian Autos Blog. The exhausts are stmaped with the Liberty Moto logo but they look to be the same as on the current GT, the tires are now Vee Rubber hoops, the bars get bar end mirrors and the tank is painted to mimic the thick over-the-top tank strap typical of the period this special is apeing.

The forks on the Liberty Moto are 41mm items whilst the rear shocks remain Paioli units as used on the current GT.

What do you think to this tweaked version of the GT? Is it cafe racer enough for you? It will clearly be seriously cheaper than many recent bikes we’ve seen from other manufacturers of late.
