Borile Corse New Racing Department for Borile, Debuts Multiuso R and M-Sport

Remember the Ducati vs Borile law suit and all the fuss revolving around the Scrambler name? Well, Ducati may have won that round, but Borile is not defeated. In fact, believe it or not, we are witnessing the birth of Borile Corse, a racing department which will focus on the off-road segment.

The full extent of Borile’s involvement in the off-road racing segment is yet to be established, but it looks like the first attempts are also including beginners. The first bike which will bear the green oval badge of Borile Corse will be the Multiuso 230.

Borile Multiuso 230 is a single-cylinder machine which in engineered to be equally fun riding on both asphalt and in the dirt. The Base model will receive an R version, which will race in the Campionato Italiano Motorally 2015. The Multiuso R will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

The version M-Sport is already in production stage, and Borile says this bike is the natural evolution from the Multiuso platform. The M-Sport is an enduro-oriented Multiuso version, and Borile envisages to see it performing in the Italian Enduro Championship and in the Veneto Enduro Championship, also a national Italian series.

It will be interesting to see how Borile Multiuso turns into a racer, because the base figures are nothing to write home about. The Multiuso 230 packs 15 horsepower at 6,200 rpm from its 229cc air-cooled power unit but has very good terrainability thanks to is 21” front wheel complemented by an 18” rear one. Fact is that Borile seems to get ahead of Ducati in the off-road racing game.
