Just started riding again and bought a 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT cafť racer. Took the bike out this morning for about 45 minutes and while returning home making my last turn in second gear the bike completely died and came to a rolling stop. Everything electrical would not come back on. I put the bike in neutral and turned the key off, once turning the key back on still nothing with my gauges or starter button. Iíve checked all the fuses and they are good the bike is hooked up to a battery charger right now, Iím hoping thatís the issue but has anyone seen this before or is there a more serious potential problem?

This is a bicycle forum. I suspect you'll have better luck posting this on a motorcycle forum .

Wrong forum but, as a long time Ducati guy, I'm guessing it's an electrical connection malfunction. And, since you get nothing, I'd start with the battery connections. Now on to a moto forum for you.

Royal Enfields are cool bikes. I've always been a fan of old British iron, though RE is now made in India.

Can't help you much other than start with a wiring diagram and multimeter and work through it.
