AWARD
[ The King of Verona ]
MBE Award
MBE Award

The MBE Award, organized directly by the Motor Bike Expo staff, is the most important contest that bike builders can take part in.

Every year a “top 10” selection of bikes on display at the event, all hand-picked by a panel of judges made up of four legends of customization from the USA, Asia, and Europe. Only one customizer can claim the title “King of Verona”, doing so by securing the highest vote from the judges.

To take place on the Main Stage in Hall 1 on Friday morning.

The Prize

The prize consists of a precious, handcrafted piece of jewelry, made specially for the occasion and in accordance with the values that the MBE Award seeks to embody in front of the international press: originality, beauty, personalization, art, and the exclusivity of having created something unique and which mirrors the pricelessness of having “the best motorcycle of the event”.

In 2018 a solid gold ring with embedded precious stones made by Bulldog Garage, and in 2019 a bracelet from Silverbone, both being long-running exhibitors at Motor Bike Expo, were presented to the King. Apart from the Award itself, there are also prizes such as vouchers from aftermarket distributor Zodiac, watches from Timex, and sunglasses from MCJ.
