The Bun Burner ride was completed successfully by Devjeet Saha on a Hero Splendor Pro. This Bun Burner, which has been recognised by the Iron Butt Association (IBA) and challenges riders to complete a distance of 2414 kilometres within only 36 hours. Devjeet had also taken up the challenge previously on a Hero Karizma.

He said, “I always like setting records that cannot be easily broken. There are many people, who have done the Bun Burner, and many who wish to do so, but very seldom will you come across someone who will want to do it on a lesser capacity motorcycle. That’s the real challenge. Such endurance rides are relatively easier when you have high performance machines, but to do something extraordinary on an ordinary machine is what gives me a sense of accomplishment.”
