650cc BSA Scrambler motorcycle revealed

Written by Nayak

BSA showcased a new scrambler-style concept at the Motorcycle Live show in Birmingham. With the growing interest in BSA’s Gold Star revival. This new scrambler concept did attract significant attention at the NEC. With the demand for scrambler-based motorcycles on the rise, BSA aims to lure in some customers to its stable.

What Is The BSA Scrambler?

Interestingly this is a scrambler-style motorcycle that gets a long-travel suspension. Other key highlights include knobby tyres and a new paint job featuring a #28 side plate. The heart of the matter remains the same, which is a 652cc single-cylinder engine. The suspension and tyres, alongside the headlight cover, wide handlebar, and wire-spoke wheels, prove the bike’s off-road styling. But upon close scrutiny, the tread depth also indicates a dual purpose. Well, this is precisely what we expect from a scrambler. There is also the use of a larger-diameter front wheel with a single brake disc, a dual-exit exhaust tailpipe, and dual shock absorbers at the rear.

A Small Trivia For Scrambler Motorcycles

One interesting takeaway from the world of scrambler motorcycles. This is the naming nomenclature followed by the manufacturers. For example, Ducati calls its scrambler range Scrambler. Similarly, Royal Enfield names it, Sram, and Triumph for their Street, and 1200 scramblers go simply with Scrambler, too. As evident, there is a naming crisis in this segment of motorcycling.

Launch Timeline And Price

As of now, BSA has yet to announce the timeline for the availability of this scrambler motorcycle. Furthermore, we do not even have a price tag for the same. So, as it stands, there’s not much concrete information available. Although, if anyone is interested to have a look at the motorcycle in the flesh, they can definitely visit Motorcycle Live, where one could find the BSA store in Hall 3A, stand 3D10.
