Correction to our earlier report: Coy elements on the motorcycle such as the crankcase and carburetor cover made us believe that this was a Triumph Motorcycle that is supposed to be made in India. However, we can now confirm with multiple sources that it is not a Triumph. Nevertheless, this is still the first sighting of the motorcycle that is primarily for the UK market.
This is the upcoming Jawa-BSA 650cc single-cylinder motorcycle for the world markets. India’s launch for this motorcycle is still unknown. BSA 650cc Single Cylinder spied here has a lot to do with the Bonville series that it is targeted at. What does the first look at the motorcycle help us see? The real exhaust has been hidden with a large casing to not give away the design for now.
The side panel, large fuel tank, and seat design look very retro as it sits very low thanks to a very low suspension height. The handlebar is also something we have seen on the Bonneville range. The front and rear wheel size are different with the front being bigger. The spoke wheel and Pirelli pattern tires seen here are typical modern-retro motorcycle materials. There are disc brakes on both ends, the chain drive is on the other side too. The forks have gators on them and the rear shock is simple and is adjustable. LED lights are seen on the tail-lamp, the front could have the same too.
A cubic capacity of 650cc and a single-cylinder means it will be very affordable and our source who sent us these photos said that it does sound quite loud too!. Mated to a 5/6-speed gearbox making around 45-50 BHP and 35-40 Nm means this could be a proper thumper of the past despite this is liquid-cooled to meet all emission norms of the future. An early sighting of this motorcycle means it is still getting ready to be in production. Launch could happen in late 2022 or early 2023.
