The new Gold Star 650 gets a 652cc engine which is a liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve unit responsible for delivering 45hp of maximum power at 6,000rpm and 55Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm. But instead of a 6-speed gearbox, it only gets a 5-speed unit. The company has officially communicated about this engine that “Torque starts building up from as low as 1,800rpm, delivering a healthy flow throughout the rev range and resulting in effortless cruising and bursts of acceleration when needed."
