Mahindra & Mahindra -owned company Classic Legends is ready to knock again in the Indian market. Under BSA Motorcycles, the company is going to bring a new Goldstar 650 bike. It was introduced only last year. Now this bike has been spotted during testing on Indian roads. It is being speculated that it can be launched soon.
How is the look of this bike?
The BSA Goldstar 650 bike, which was spotted during testing, has got a retro look. It gets integrated daytime running lights (DRL), LED tail lamps, tear drop shaped fuel tank and round headlamps with wide handlebars. Also, wide fenders are also seen at the front and rear of the bike. Chrome has been used all over the body of the Goldstar, which is visible from the headlamp to the exhaust pipe.
The bike will come with Royal Enfield engines
Classic Legends has used Royal Enfield ‘s powertrain in the BSA motorcycle. The motorcycle is powered by a 650cc single-cylinder motor, which generates about 47hp of power and 40Nm of torque. Not much is known about the powertrain, but the bike will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox for transmission. Let us know that Classic Legends currently has single-cylinder motors of 293cc and 334cc. The company is using them in Yezdi’s bikes.
These features are given in the bike
The design of the new BSA motorcycle has been developed in England and will be made there apart from India. For rider safety and better braking performance, it gets disc brakes at both the front and rear wheels along with Dual Channel Anti Lock Braking System (ABS). Keeping the suspension in mind, it gets 41mm telescopic forks up front and preload-adjustable dual shock absorbers at the rear.
What will be the cost of this bike?
Not much is known about the price and availability of the BSA Goldstar motorcycle. However, it will be brought to the market with the latest features between £5,000 and £10,000 (approximately Rs 4.9 lakh to Rs 9.8 lakh).
The Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA), started in 1861, was established in Birmingham and for many years the company focused on the manufacture of arms.
The company began producing motorcycles in 1910 and by the mid-1960s had become one of the most successful companies in Britain. The company was bankrupt by 1972 with the subsequent entry of Japanese manufacturers into the global market.
