The attempt will take place on the longest day of the year – Monday 21st June – and will see MV Agusta teaming up with Italian journalist Valerio Boni handling the riding duties. The steed selected for the task is the newly updated MV Agusta Turismo Veloce.

Boni will set off on the 1200-mile trip pan-European trip respecting all the traffic and speed regulations, starting from Malmö in Sweden and ending at the MV Agusta headquarters in Schiranna, Italy.

In completing the challenge, Boni will also gain SaddleSore 1600K and SaddleSore 2000K certifications from the Iron Butt Association, the “World’s toughest Motorcycle Riders”. The challenges consist in riding respectively 1.600 km and 2.000 km in less than 24 hours.

Valerio Boni commented: “This long, epic ride across Europe will certainly be challenging for both rider and bike, but the 2021 edition of the Turismo Veloce, in its production version, has everything it takes to achieve the objective in the best conditions. Thanks to the Turismo Veloce’s onboard technology we will be able to share the adventure in real-time on the official website
