Hyderabadi bike enthusiasts are elated with this piece of news and feel that this kind of resurrection will once again revive interest and enthusiasm about vintage bikes. “It really is wonderful news for older biking enthusiasts like us. I have been driving a BSA Motorcycle for the last 35 years and once the brand is unveiled in India it will be a big boost for us,” says Ravi Kumar, bike enthusiast.

Mahindra and Mahindra’s subsidiary brand, Classic Legends – that manufactures another vintage bike Jawa – has a majority stake in BSA Motorcycles. As per reports, the company is also planning to revive Yezdi brand in the country through the Classic Legends, which has its store in the city.

“When I heard the news about BSA Motorcycles coming back it took me back to my younger days. One of the first bikes that I ever had was a BSA Motorcycle and to get hold of the brand once again will be a dream come true for me,” says Col B Shashidhar, city-based bike lover.

BSA Motorcycles had become defunct in the early 1970s but now looks like the brand might get resurrected from its ruins. BSA Motorcycles Official’s tweet talks about the ‘return of a legend’ and says, “We’ve evolved, but our DNA remains unaltered.” The company is all set to make an official comeback with a new product on December 4 in Birmingham, UK, as per reports.

BSA motorcycles were made by the Birmingham Small Arms Company Limited, which was a major British industrial combine. A government-organised rescue operation in 1973 led to the takeover of BSA-Triumph motorcycle operations by Norton-Villiers, later known as Norton Villiers Triumph.

“Whenever a vintage bike makes a comeback announcement, it brings back memories for many of us. Either some of us have ridden those bikes in our young age or some have enjoyed the bike rides with our fathers or grandfathers. So, BSA Motorcycles bringing back their old motorcycles with advanced features will surely the right nostalgia note for a lot of us,” says Kuldeep Sharma, co-founder, LetsRyde.
