Everything about the way the BSA Gold Star looks and goes is a homage to the original 1950s version. This isn’t a monster dripping with hidden tech, big power and a hefty price tag, it’s a 45bhp single cylinder retro roadster designed to deliver the simple pleasure of riding.
Like the BSA Goldstar DBD34 it’s inspired by, it’s a certified member of the ton-up club, but unlike the original there are there are concessions to modern day convenience, reliability and safety: ABS, fuel injection, an electric start and a modern-day, oil-tight engine.
BSA have created a machine that focuses on single cylinder simplicity and riding enjoyment. The Gold Star isn’t the fastest or best handling retro out there, but neither is it pretending to be.
Instead, it’s easy to ride, solid and reassuring, but still quick if you want it to be. It’s nicely finished, detailed and comes with a rumbling, but not too shouty classic British soundtrack. The BSA isn’t an iconic badge slapped on a generic motorcycle, it’s well thought out and the perfect steed for newer riders, or for those who just want to take it easy.
It's for these reasons that in 2023, the BSA Gold star won Best Retro in the MCN Awards.
