BSA bikes: Classic Legends to set up plant in UK to manufacture BSA bikes


Mumbai: BSA, the legendary British motorcycle brand, is set to make deeper inroads in the UK with Mahindra & Mahindra-owned Classic Legends, the brand’s new owner, gearing up to start building a new factory in the UK from the next financial year.

These motorcycles will be produced in the UK for the domestic market and also exported to other developed markets such as the US, Australia and Japan, Anupam Thareja, co-founder, Classic Legends, told ET. BSA has been selling the Gold Star motorcycle model in the UK for more than a year through imports from India.

The UK facility will be among several plants Classic Legends plans to build overseas as part of its strategy to become a global motorcycle maker, Thareja said. The company also owns the Yezdi and Jawa motorcycle brands.
