Turismo Veloce Europe Endurance”, is an epic ride of over 2.000 km that will see journalist Valerio Boni attempting to break the world record of the most nations visited in 24 hours on a motorcycle. In the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, he will set off on his journey across Europe starting from Malmö in Sweden and ending at the MV Agusta headquarters in Schiranna, Italy, visiting a total of 11 countries: Sweden, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and of course, Italy.

The kind of testing challenge that seems to be cut off for The Turismo Veloce, rigorously in its standard production configuration.


Valerio Boni, 62, is an Italian motorcycling journalist. A true motorsport enthusiast, he’d ride anything with wheels and an engine and has a particular predilection for endurance raids. He was among the first Italian riders taking part in African rallies, and rode 125 cc Cagiva to victory in Morocco and Egypt. He also has a passion for long distance, round-the-clock challenges.

“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”
