Borile B450 Scrambler

I’ve always been a fan of scrambler bikes. This has been in part thanks to a couple of 1960’s period motorbike mags I have in my collection. Hard-jawed scrambler riders riding their bikes at impossible angles, safe in the knowledge their ‘state of the art’ cork helmets will give them protection should they need it. One modern day bike builder is channeling the spirit of those original trials type bikes, but putting some new age reliability into his offerings. Based in the town of Vò Euganeo, Borile is a boutique bike workshop, producing small volume models in their range – so there is no chance of pulling up next to one at a set of lights. Today’s feature bike is the B450 scrambler, Borile’s first bike to utilise the new 450cc engine, containing componentry supplied by Ducati. And it’s a brilliant tribute to the scramblers of old.

The dealership. It usually projects the faceless corporate image of the automotive world, where orders usually come from the head office and conformity is expected. They are hardly a place where creativity can grow freely in – something the boys from British American Motors realised four years ago. They decided to do things a little different and once free of the shackles of orders from above, have been able to build bikes like today’s feature bike, their take on the 2012 Triumph Scrambler. Take that conformity.

TPR Urban Scrambler

Posted on January 21, 2010 by Scott in Scrambler. 5 comments

These Italian Urban Scramblers have been causing a stir on many Italian motorcycle sites. It’s the first motorcycle designed by TPR Italian Factory – a new company started by Pietro Figini. Like many custom bike builders, Pietro Figini couldn’t find a motorcycle on the Italian market that showed character, style and uniqueness, so he designed this urban scrambler hoping others would share his taste for classic bikes. Figini loves his English motorcycles, so decided to use a twin cylinder 800cc engine as a base, along with the Triumph Bonneville’s double crade chassis. The rest of the bike then went into production, taking inspiration from bikes mainly from the 1960’s. The Urban Scrambler is no show pony either, but also a performance bike, with work on the engine and fuel system resulting in a respectable 75 hp. We love this scrambler and can’t wait to see TPR’s Cafe Racer which is apparently in production. To view the whole spec list hit this link.
