The remarkable journey planned spans 14 countries; Mario is expected to arrive at the Benelli factory in Italy, end of October.

Mario Iroth, a professional rider from Indonesia, has successfully completed many cross-country riding events, and this time his passion has encouraged him to ride solo from Indonesia to India. But it doesn't end here. Mario's journey is not time bound and on his Benelli TNT 600i, he will continue to ride and explore the varied cultures of the world. From here, Mario's next stop will be in Pakistan, moving on to Iran and then Baluchistan. He will then make his way to Europe where the journey will end in Italy at the Benelli factory. In totality, Mario will ride through 14 countries astride his TNT 600i.

Speaking about the bike he selected to perform this feat, the Benelli TNT 600i, Mario said, “After having completed the first leg of my journey, I’m completely satisfied with my decision. The street- fighter is mettlesome and has proved its much-spoken-of performance capability. It is only befitting that the culmination of this pilgrimage is at the birth point of my partner in this mission, the Benelli factory in Pesaro, Italy.”

Chairman of DSK Motowheels, Shirish Kulkarni said, "We were thrilled to find out that Mario Iroth had chosen the Benelli TNT 600i for his awe-inspiring journey through 14 countries. We are pleased to know that Mario has found his choice to be ideal and wish him good luck for the next part of his extraordinary ride."

Mario is expected to touch Pesaro, Italy by the end of October, 2015.
