BSA GOLD STAR 650 2022 | Legend with a cylinder

 In 2016 Mahindra bought the trademark rights to BSA. In 2021 a new motorcycle with a new engine and legendary name will be in Birmingham.

Birmingham Small Arms Company was actually called the company, but is known by the abbreviation BSA. The British brand became world famous with its single-cylinder Gold Star, which was built into the 1960s, before it went into decline in the early 1970s. At the end of 2016, the Indian Mahindra Group held the trademark rights to BSA through its subsidiary Yezdibought and announced to build motorcycles again under the name and to want to bring them to the international market. Two years were named as the period for the BSA's comback at the time. In August 2019, Yezdi announced "a comeback" with a post on Instagram. With which models, however, remained completely open. The start of the BSA was a long time coming. Now at the end of 2021 the time has finally come. The new Birmingham Small Arms celebrates its new start at the Birmingham Motor Show. The surprise: BSA brings the Gold Star back. With a new single cylinder with 650 cubic meters.  BSA Gold Star 650 BSA is bringing back the Gold Star with a very unusual engine in the frame today. It was once famous for its potent single cylinder. And just such an engine drives the new Gold Star. A new development with water cooling, a displacement of around 650 cubic centimeters, roughly 45 hp and a good 55 Nm of torque. The Gold Star 650 fits perfectly into the A2 class and its performance is not far from the main competitor: the Royal Enfield Continental GT with 650 cc and 48 hp. The very classically drawn single hangs in a tubular steel frame with a double loop and a simple steel swing arm. The chassis consists of a telescopic fork with a single disc and Brembo pliers at the front. At the rear there is the Gold Star stereo damper and also a disc brake. ABS is mandatory on board.  BSA from England and also as electronic versions In November 2020, Anand Mahindra, Indian billionaire and chairman of the Mahindra Group, took up the comeback plans again in an interview with the British newspaper "The Guardian". BSA is scheduled to start in 2021 - with a production facility in Great Britain. Whereby it is supposed to be only a final assembly from kits supplied from India. Currently there are still uncertainties due to Corona and Brexit, but the plan itself is in place. Initially, BSA is to start with motorcycles with internal combustion engines, but later switch to electric drives. Whereby "later" already means the end of 2021. Mahindra will shortly begin construction of an R&D facility in Banbury, where the Mahindra Racing team is already based.  Over 200,000 employees worldwide Mahindra is by no means unknown in the motorcycle scene. Since 2011, the Mumbai-based group has been successfully starting the Moto3 World Championship as a designer with its own team. In India, Mahindra is one of the greats as a supplier of cars, motorcycles, agricultural machinery and airplanes. The group employs over 200,000 people worldwide (for comparison: BMW has 122,500 employees worldwide). At the same time as buying BSA, Mahindra also acquired the Indian license rights for the Czech brand Jawa. The first new Jawa models are already on sale . The motorcycle and scooter division of Peugeot is also part of the Indian portfolio .  CONCLUSION The Indian Mahindra Group is bringing back the cult brand BSA in 2021. With models based around a new 650 twin-cylinder, BSA wants to compete directly against competitor Royal Enfield.
