According to various press reports, Mahidra 2 Wheel look set to revive both brands in the coming years after the RE brand has seen popularity once again, no information is available as yet of models but it is going to make the retro style bike market very interesting.

Looking at the huge domestic market in India this could be a cleaver idea, some rumoured that BSA would be sold to a Chinese company.....
A modern version of the BSA B31/B33 would be in direct competition with RE.

The difference between RE and BSA is that all BSA manufacturing stopped ages ago and no base is left to build on.
RE could develop an existing business and you can say whatever you want about RE but they did well and continue to do well.

Let's hope Mahindra is capable of developing BSA to do honour to the brand, that would make the "Brit bike" market even more interesting.
