BSA Returns with Retro Gold Star

After almost 50 years, the British manufacturer returns, previewing its first new model.

According to www.autoblog.com, after a long absence, British motorcycle manufacturer BSA is making a comeback with the Gold Star, a retro model outfitted with modern technology.

The Gold Star hosts a single-cylinder, dual-overhead camshaft, liquid-cooled 652cc engine that puts out 45 horespower and 41 pound-feet of torque; it also boasts a five-speed transmission.

In addition, the bike uses Brembo brakes, with a 320-millimeter disc in front with a twin-piston caliper and a 255-millimeter disc in the rear with a single-piston caliper. As a testament to marrying retro style with modern tech, the Gold Star also has an automatic braking system (ABS).

At 470 pounds, the BSA Gold Star rests on Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tires and sports twin shock absorbers to handle the damping.

The fuel tank holds 12 liters and is estimated to return 70.6 miles per gallon.

As far as styling goes, chrome covers the bike, from the fuel tank to the filler cap and fender. Classic, analog instruments also feature a small LCD display. The Gold Star comes in the following colorways: Insignia Red, Dawn Siler, Midnight Black, Highland Green and Silver Sheen.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
