According to the reports, the company has delayed the launch of the bike by 3 months and now have scheduled the availability of the bikes in June 2022. The reason stated by the company is that they are working on setting up a ‘Comprehensive Dealership Network’ to better facilitate the availability of the bikes to their customers.
Additionally, it is also mentioned that the media in Europe will start receiving the review units of the Gold Star 650 by as early as April or early May, just before the availability of the bike to the general public.

As for India, none of these developments affect the availability of the retro-roadster here. Classic Legends have made it clear that the GoldStar 650 will not be coming to our shores anytime soon, even though it will be manufactured here and exported to the European market.
If miraculously the BSA Gold Star 650 does enter our market, it will compete against the Royal Enfield 650 twins – Interceptor 650 and Continental GT – and the soon to launch Super Meteor 650.
