Burgman 400 customized at auction: the proceeds to charity

For all motorcycle enthusiasts, the visit to Eicma has a little more beauty this year. In addition to the long-awaited return to presence, it was possible to admire the only example of Burgman 400 wrapped with the work “The fencer” by the Van Orton twins, world-famous Italian illustrators. In addition to these artists also participated Francesco Poroli, Riccardo Guasco and Gianluca Folì. In addition, the Van Ortons have been elected by the Suzuki online community to customize the Burgman 400 livery, which becomes a real artwork on 2 wheels. Sold at auction on the charitystarts.com platform for 7,390 euros, it was delivered, together with the 1/50 print of the work, to the successful bidder. All during the official ceremony on Wednesday 24 November at the Suzuki stand in Eicma in Milan.
