They have started out with a 500cc engine in1988 while the BORILE B500T got them the recognizance and they also make an off roader MT500, which has a monoshock and a very small tank to go with it.
The Borile B500T, showcased in 1997 at EICMA exhibition in Milan, Borile took the direction of retro, proposing the classic look of the “60’s” inspired by the classic English school, powered by modern mechanisms. But its their CR500 that has the biking world hooked. Nor a offroader, nor a roadstar, neither a true Cafe Racer, it embodies the 3 different concepts into one and the result has been a visually stunning motorcycle.
