This very limited edition scrambler model is completely handmade by Umberto Borile. It features the Borile spec GM engine (a motor originally developed for Speedway racing), a classic Norton 4-speed gearbox and a dry clutch driven by a toothed belt. The power is en- trusted to a classic carburettor, the spoked wheels are 300x21 front and 450x18 rear. The B500 Rickis frame is classic but built with carpental 7020 aluminum in the best Borile tradition for stiffness and lightness. The mudguards and tank will be aluminium, but their finish is remarkable. The alloy is left its natural color, pure metal, inspiring emotion, hiding nothing.
