The auditions will telecast on MTV as the 'MTV Hero Honda Roadies II - Audition Specials'.

MTV Hero Honda Roadies II will flag off from the 'City of Joy' Kolkata on 20 August, to the historic landmark - the Wagah border. In the vein of the MTV Hero Honda Roadies I, the chosen 7 Roadies will ride across this magnificent stretch, for 35 days across more than 2000 kms. MTV's 'reality' candid camera will capture their joys, sorrows, love, hate, betrayal, agony and ecstasy across this journey -- to be aired on MTV. Capsuled in 26 episodes, MTV Hero Honda Roadies II, will show how seven 'Roadies' react to situations alien to them.

The option of leaving the journey is open at any point of time, but every Roadie who makes it to the end will win big! Each of the seven Roadies will win a 223cc Hero Honda 'Karizma' bike and be part of the second season of MTV's first reality adventure show!
