    Check this out guys. This Indian company will be introducing a new BSA Gold Star thumper to the market next year. I will be displayed at the upcoming UK motorcycle show. Here is a link to an interview with the BSA company's director of the brand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDFZAp4bR_4

    Finally an Indian company who has brought a famous British motorcycle brand and has designed a model that actually looks like something from the past, while meeting the latest emission and safety requirements.

    I should add that pricing is still up in the air. I assume that it will be whatever the company thinks the market will bear.

    They really saved the soul of the BSA. What an amazing look! Can't wait to ride this classic beauty.

    Looks good, but price will be important.

    Here is Cycle World's spin on the new BSA. Nothing new here though, other than some nice photos of the bike: https://www.cycleworld.com/story/mot...-look-preview/

    Good for old BSA.They used to be everywhere. I rode a 650 BMW exclusively for 3 years and I can imagine this bike is a little more nimble, little faster, and a little more expensive than mine was (1984 R65 $3,700). The only big deal is they need to be loaded down to ride smoother on the freeway. At that point the only other deal is they are kind of “fast car fast.” For a motorcycle they are slow. But I always have fond memories of cruising on all of my fairing-less bikes. A little more strenuous on your upper body. But you can always add a fairing later.

    Friends have the Enfield 650's and really like them. The BSA's built by the same company may be just the ticket for the retro looking bike built to modern standards.
    I rode a couple 350 single Enfield's years ago and they shook like crazy. Hopefully they will have done some magic and made them smooth. I've got a '13 650GS and it is fairly vibration free.
