Benelli is launching a new international event to promote their brand and motorbikes on the South American stage.
Benelli is currently co-operating with the Italian Police, through their association “Motoforpeace”, in their new charity mission aimed at helping the children of Ecuador.
Motoforpeace, a sports association composed of the members of the Italian Police, this year has chosen the Tre 1130 K Amazonas as the symbol of their new charity initiative.
Benelli and the policemen of different European countries, urged by their well known humanitarian spirit, will be the protagonists of this campaign and will ride the Amazonas on the legendary itinerary of the Carretera Panamericana, starting from Venezuela to Patagonia, crossing the states of Columbia, Ecuador, Perú, Chile and Bolivia.
During the travel the police officers will promote fund-raising and other cultural events, supported by the Benelli sponsorship.
The mission will leave on October 30th, 2007 and will be completed on December 12th, 2007: the policemen and the Amazonas will cover more than 16.000 km testing the bikes in all riding conditions and relying on the Benelli constant technical support.
