Among the numerous models produced perhaps most notable was a five-wheeler, an idea adopted by Piaggio three decades later with their Pentarò. From 1936 on the engines were further developed and frames were built from pressed-metal.
In the years before the Second World War Nicola Bordone also built the NB, a high-cam 500cc four-stroke. In 1957 the firm produced an OHV 600cc motocarro.
