BSA Releases First Video of Gold Star

In this BSA Gold Star video, the company has tried to talk about the basic idea behind making the motorcycle…

We have all been hyped with the fact that the classic brand BSA is coming back and since then, we know a whole lot about their first product in the 21st century – the Gold Star. BSA (owned by Classic Legends) showcased the resurrection of their Gold Star motorcycle at the Motorcycle Live Show in the UK earlier in December. The bike is completely designed and developed in the UK and is scheduled to be available in the UK initially.

On 5th of December, BSA officially released the first commercial of the classic model in all its chrome-decked glory. In the commercial the bike appears to wind back the time while it leans through the winding roads. Watch it out…

The new BSA Gold Star has been inspired from their popular Gold Star 650 of the yesteryears, and carry similar classic styling like the tear-drop tank, twin analogue gauges, long-swoop exhaust and retro colour scheme.

The BSA Gold Star is powered by a single-cylinder 650 cc engine that produces 45 bhp of peak power at 6000 rpm and 55 Nm of max torque at 4000 rpm. This motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. However, there are some modern bits like Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) along with liquid cooling.
