Motorcyclist Magazine has an article in the March/April issue about "Street Singles". It does not appear to be online. It compares the Conti, aYamaha SR400, the Honda CBR300R and the Suzuki S40. Comments for each bike are brief. Due to copyright reasons I just transcribe the intro paragraph and the one about the Conti.
Remarkably a next article titled "Modern retros to the rescue" talks about Triumph, Ducati, BMW, Yamaha but does not mention Royal Enfield.
