Borile Motorcycles

Borile makes retro-modern bicycles and motorcycles in Padova, Italy, such as the B500CR, "a modern day interpretation of how a BSA Gold Star would look if it were produced today." 

Borile's technically advanced yet aesthetically vintage motorcycles are at the center of a marked retro wave during the first decade of the 21st century. Early Boriles were handmade, limited-production creations, but later models are mass-produced.

History

Borile is a motorcycle manufacturer founded by Umberto Borile, in 1988.

The first Borile model was the Piuma 520, a single cylinder, four stroke, 500cc off-road model. Their second model didn't come until 1997, when the Borile B500T was unveiled at the EICMA exhibition in Milan.

Umberto Borile is also the owner of UB Racing, a company that produces motorcycle accesories.

Next came the B500 CR, which went into mass production in September of 2002. At the end of 2000, the B500 CR will have new brothers, meaning the B 500T, a tourist-road version, the B 500S, a super sport model and the classic off-road, the B 500.

The current Borile line-up includes the B500 CR, the Borile B500 MT and a bicycle called Borile Silver Star.
