Maybe he’s the one who hid the first BSA motorcycle for a very long time. According to recent reports, a brand new 650cc powertrain has been developed by BSA and it will start selling in the UK first in small quantities before expanding its wing. The most interesting thing is that the motorcycle will be manufactured speculatively in India taking advantage of the lower costs involved in sourcing the components locally.
The next range of BSA motorcycles could be assembled abroad and a dedicated assembly line would have been set up at the Pithampur plant. The all new BSA motorcycle could be a classic themed model that could rival the Royal Enfield 650 Twins and tourers / cruisers from Kawasaki and Triumph.
BSA rose to prominence during WWII and was one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in the world at the time. Classic Legends has secured £ 4.6million in funding from the UK government. also to establish a technical and design center.
