The VUN Marathon Story

One of the VUNs on display at the CR&S stand at EICMA 2009 was the VUN Marathon. Claudio Zanoni rode the VUN Marathon solo from Milano to Verona, "the long way", in June 2009 by riding 17,746 km across 16 countries in 20 days.

The Marathon is specially made for long distance travel. It is fitted with a 16.5L fuel tank (instead of the 12.5L standard tank), a sub-frame for carrying pannier cases, a belly pan and small front fairing and a GPS attachment.

Now CR&S and Key Frame have produced a new video documenting the inspiration and preparation for this trip (in Italian).
