The official images released by the brand suggest that the brand will be retaining the original design inspirations and will offer a near bike with an attractive retro-styling. The bike will be based on tubular steel, dual-cradle frame and will feature a 41 mm telescopic fork at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. Upfront, the bike will feature R-18 wheels while at the rear, we will see smaller, seventeen-inch wheels. With a total kerb weight of about 213 kg, the bike will get dual disc brakes with Brembo callipers at both ends. On the features front, the bike will boast a twin-pod speedometer with LCD multi-functional display, an LED taillight, dual-channel ABS, slipper clutch, and a USB charger.
Powering the Gold Star 650 will be an all-new, 652 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve motor that was recently developed by the brand in mid-2021. This engine churns out a peak power and torque output of 45hp and 55Nm respectively. In addition to this, the brand also claims that the torque in the bike starts building up from as low as 1800rpm, hence helping it boast a commendable low-end and superior driving experience. A five-speed gearbox will come mated to this engine. The bike is also expected to get a fuel tank capacity of 12 litres, thus making it a great companion for the long-distance commute. While the BSA Gold Star 650 price is yet to be disclosed, we do expect it to be slightly more expensive when compared to the similar bikes in the Royal Enfield's line-up.
