BSA Motorcycle introduced the Gold Star 650cc retro-styled motorcycle in December 2021. It looks like BSA is working on a new 650cc scrambler as a new BSA Scrambler concept bike has been unveiled at the Live Motorcycle show in Birmingham.
Although the company has yet to confirm whether the new Scrambler’s production model will be ready, some media reports claim that the BSA Scrambler 650 could be launched sometime in 2023.
The live motorcycle show pictures reveal that the concept’s styling is rough and tough. It has wire-spoke wheels, raised front fender, a single seat and a headlight grille. BSA is calling this motorcycle a concept. However, most parts of the bike look production ready. The motorcycle gets long travel suspension, knobby tires and a new colour with 28 side plates.
The headlight cover, wide handlebar and wire-spoke wheels accentuate the off-road styling of the motorcycle. Upcoming bike news The BSA Scrambler 650 features a giant front wheel with a single brake disc, a dual-exhaust pipe and dual shock absorbers at the rear.
