BSA trademarks Lightning, Thunderbolt, and Bantam motorcycle

More models will likely be resurrected under the reborn BSA brand, now owned by the Mahindra Group’s Classic Legends in India. The business has trademarked three iconic BSA bikes names, including BSA Bantam, BSA Lightning, and BSA Thunderbolt. These three names—Bantam, Lightning, and Thunderbolt—are the subjects of trademark applications submitted in the US, Australia, and New Zealand.

BSA Lightning and Thunderbolt Motorcycles

BSA Motorcycles can use emblems on upcoming bikes if the applications are approved. This is a homage to the post-war BSA lineup, which attained cult status and surpassed all other motorcycle manufacturers in the 1950s. The Lightning and Thunderbolt models used 650 cc twin-cylinder engines in the 1960s. However, what future BSA models will be powered by and mechanically equipped is unknown.

The Bantam could be a lower-capacity model created to counter the expanding small-displacement modern classic motorcycle category led by Royal Enfield. Alternatively, it could employ existing platforms from Classic Legends’ Jawa and Yezdi models.

The BSA brand was revived with the reappearance of the revised BSA Gold Star in the UK by the end of 2021. The BSA brand has not yet been introduced in India, where the new Gold Star is manufactured. The Rotax 650 engine that originally propelled the BMW F650, which was marketed as the BMW F650 Funduro in India in the late 1990s, is the source of the upcoming BSA Gold Star’s 652 ccs, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor.

The trademark applications for the upcoming names make it obvious that BSA intends to grow in many countries and regions. It may even target the motorcycle markets currently controlled by Triumph Motorcycles and Royal Enfield. BSA brand has an intriguing future. If a parallel-twin engine is developing, that is even better news for fans of modern classic vehicles. Hopefully, more information will be released soon.

BSA Motorcycles is planning to launch two models in India soon, BSA Scrambler 650, which may be priced around Rs 3,60,000, and the BSA Gold Star, which may be around Rs 3,30,000.
