All new 2022 BSA GOLD STAR 650 Legend with a Top Hat is going to hit the market soon. In 2016, Mahindra bought the trademark rights to BSA. In 2022 there will be a new motorcycle with a new engine and a legendary name at the dealerships.

The company was actually called Birmingham Small Arms Company, but is known by the abbreviation BSA. The British brand became world famous with its single-cylinder Gold Star, which was built until the 1960s, before it went into decline at the beginning of the 1970s. At the end of 2016, the Indian Mahindra Group held the trademark rights to BSA through its subsidiary Yezdibought and announced that they would build motorcycles again under the name and also want to bring them to the international market. Two years were mentioned as the period for the comeback of BSA.

BSA Gold Star 650

The new BSA Gold Star relies on a powerful single-cylinder like its historical model. The current single uses water cooling, a displacement of 652 cc, dual ignition, 45 hp at 6,000 rpm and 55 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. The Gold Star 650 fits so perfectly into the A2 class and is not far off in terms of performance from its main competitor: the Royal Enfield Continental GT with 650cc and 48 hp. The very classically designed single hangs in a tubular steel frame with a double loop and a single steel swingarm. The chassis consists of a telescopic fork with a single disc and Brembo caliper at the front.

At the back, the Gold Star carries stereo dampers and also a disc brake. The spoke rims, each with 36 spokes, carry Pirelli Phantom Sportcomp in the dimensions 100/70-18 at the front and 150/70-17 at the rear. ABS is mandatory on board. Ready to drive, the new Gold Star weighs 213 kilograms. 12 liters fit in the tank and with a consumption of only 3.36 liters the Gold Star can theoretically travel up to 357 kilometers. BSA wants to offer the new 650 in the colors red, dawn silver, highland green and in the unspecified Legacy Edition. The latter is painted Silver Sheen and should come close to the old Gold Star with its chrome tank. Prices have not yet been mentioned.

engine really old

Single cylinders with water cooling were and are rare. From the beginning of the 1990s to the beginning of the new millennium, these constructions were often installed in enduro bikes. Prominent representatives are the Aprilia Pegaso and the BMW F 650. And if you look at their technical data and, above all, pictures, you will discover a lot in common between the old Rotax construction and the BSA single. Not only do the two drives have the same cubic capacity, the dual ignition and very similar performance data in common, but also the design of the housing: the almost vertical cylinder, the position of the starter directly on the cylinder base, the oil filter exactly opposite, the large shaft of the timing chain to the The cylinder head on the left in the direction of travel and the characteristic primary drive underscore the relationship. The BSA single and the old Rotax single have a lot in common, even if the cylinder head is redesigned.

On the old Rotax single, the intake port is almost vertical, while on the BSA single it is horizontal. And it’s only logical, because the single was never bad. It was just no longer the best choice for mid-range enduro bikes, and new emission standards with Euro 3, 4 and 5 rarely mean a technical end for engines. Usually they are the economic end of a drive. 4 and 5 rarely mean a technical end for engines. Usually they are the economic end of a drive. 4 and 5 rarely mean a technical end for engines.
