METZELER MC 360™ on the Honda Africa Twin and CRF450RX established three World Records climbing the Nevado Ojos del Salado volcano, at the border between Argentina and Chile:
1) From zero to 5900 metres above the sea level in less than 24 hours
2) 5960 metres as maximum height for a twin-cylinder motorcycle
3) 5977 metres as maximum height reached with a motorcycle in less than 24 hours
The team of this record expedition was composed of Salvo Pennisi, METZELER’s Head of Testing Department, Carlo Fiorani, Honda’s Head of Racing Communications, the industry journalists Francesco Catanese and Karsten Schwers, and Fabio Mossini, the enduro champion now part of the Honda Sud America team.
The adventure in Chile represented the final and most severe testing of the new METZELER MC 360™, the new range of METZELER products dedicated to Motocross, Supercross, Cross-Country, non-F.I.M. Enduro and Freestyle.
