Rumour: 650cc single-cylinder engine to power BSA bikes
The new BSA bike is likely to be built in the UK and will compete with similar offerings from Kawasaki and Triumph.
Having re-introduced Jawa, Classic Legends now plans to resurrect two more popular brands. These include Yezdi and BSA.
Earlier this month, a trademark application was filed for the Yezdi Roadking name, which suggests that the company’s plans are on track. Now, there’s news about BSA.
According to a media report, the upcoming BSA motorcycle will be powered by a 650cc, single-cylinder engine and it is likely to be paired with a 5-speed transmission. While details about the engine are still under wraps, it is estimated to produce around 50 hp and 50 Nm.
The new BSA bike is likely to be built in the UK and will compete with similar offerings from Kawasaki and Triumph. It is expected to boast a neo-retro look similar to its competition.
Although the new BSA 650cc bike could easily take on Royal Enfield’s 650 twins in India, the brand is unlikely to be introduced here anytime soon.
