At its peak, BSA was the largest motorcycle producer in the world. Loss of sales and poor investments in new products in the motorcycle division, which included Triumph Motorcycles, led to problems for the whole group. BSA went into Receivership in 1973. In December 1994, BSA Group was taken over by a newly formed BSA Regal Group, an engineering and company specialising in plumbing supplies. The new company, based in Southampton, planned to supply spares parts. However, this has not been viable and it now subcontracts this business. It attempted to produce a number of limited-edition, retro-styled motorcycles in the but, using a Yamaha engine, the motor cycles did not sell.
