1906 - 1926
EMB for Edmondo Michele Borgo, Borgo (Motocicli Borgo, later Moto Borgo) was born by an interest on the nascent engine technique of Edmondo Michele Borgo, who at the beginning of the 1900's began to make a motorcycle for himself, then for some of his friends. From there, Motoborgo began, together with his two brothers Carlo and Alberto who then also joined the business. Borgo was founded by Edmondo Borgo and his two brothers Carlo and Alberto Borgo, biased in Torino and put in motion the production of some advanced designs.
The Motoborgo logo is represented by a rampant bull (symbol of our town of Torino) on the top and below, a stylized representation of the "Mole Antonelliana" which is the monument symbol of Torino, and at its right the acronym EMB for Edmondo Michele Borgo, the company's founder.
The first single line of models were the 498, 693 and 827 cc with the intake valves on the exhaust. In 1911 they adopted the use of aluminum pistons and in 1914 added a belt driven transmission with a variable ratio. In 1915 they built a 990 cc V-twin and later, this is also a 746 cc version.
In 1920 they began the production of a 477 cc twin-cylinder with integrated oil tank to the frame. In 1921 Borgo constructed a 477 cc V-twin overhead valve race engine with four valves per cylinder. In 1925 an engine block published a version was the last engine Moto Borgo made in the series. In 1926, when the company decided to specialize in the manufacture of pistons, motorcycle production would cease.
