TyreTec Trading where invited to the world launch of the new Avon RoadRider MKII last week in London, and we witness not only the funfair of this new release of motorcycle tyre range, but also we were shown a brief glimpse, and given some insight into the development of a new range. I'm sure there is always a lot of time, effort and investment involved into any new range but in this case there needed to be progress into a motorbike tyre that, at least in the UK, is probably the most successful when it comes to mid-range, classics, vintage, cafe racers and generally motorcycles that cannot fit radial tyres.
The Dunlop TT100 GP Radial is a new range from Dunlop Motorcycle Division which has taken the classic look but given the tyre a brand new DNA make up.
A new range for the fastest growing segment in the European motorbike market.
Many manufacturers sometimes have two at least options when it comes to some of the larger Sport Touring Motorcycles. A standard version and a GT version. The question on many peoples minds is; the GT version, at least when it comes to Michelin, and the specifically the Pilot Road 4 and the Road 5 (due Sept 2019) for "heavier bikes"?
Undisputed European Sport Touring Tyre, the Michelin Pilot Road 4 is the benchmark, with sales in excess of 1.5 million tyres since its launch some four or so years ago. And that's the reason really for this years launch of the Road 5. Now in 2018 things have moved on in motoring, especially when it comes to motorcycle tyres, so Michelin wanted to bring together those four years of development into a new range, the Road 5.
Selecting the right tyre can be a very daunting task. You know the size of the tyre and maybe even the speed rating you need but that's not enough. There are so many options!!! Different compounds and treads which is the right one for me? What we will try and do with this series of articles is try and make that decision a bit simpler by summerizing each range of the major brands available.
So when it comes to us going through the popular ranges of Pirelli motorbike tyres, we will try and be as transparent as possible so as to help you decide on which of the ranges would be most suitable for your motorcycle or scooter. To be quite frank, it will take us some time and effort only because as a brand the Pirelli bike tyre ranges are very comprehensive, if not, the most comprehensive, in the motorbike tyre world. A typical example is the scooter tyre ranges. Where some brands just have the one tyre, or maybe even a couple, Pirelli has about twelve scooter tyres but we will focus on the main ones. You can purchase a comprehensive range of Pirelli motorcycle tyres on our website.
We should see very soon a new range of motorcycle tyre coming out of the famous German brand with the elephant logo. Metzeler are filling a need in the market for the Classic and Vintage motorcycles from the 70 and 80's era which have not had a look in with regards their tyre development since then!!
Pirelli Motorcycle Tyres have proven time and again that when it comes to street racing and ultra high performance bikes they, as a brand, have become for many manufacturers the first choice. This can be said for the new #Ducati1299Panigale 1299 Panigale S and Panigale R which will be fitting with #PirelliDiabloSuperCorsaSP 120/70ZR17 and 200/55ZR17.
Somethings do really go together, like strawberries and cream, sun and sand and in the motorcycle world Pirelli and Ducati. So these two Italian giants haven't let us down with the development of the Ducati Multistrada 1200 and the new Pirelli Scorpion Trail II. Read More
Continuing our efforts to inform bike riders on the various options they have on motorcycle and scooter tyres we have now set some more details aside regarding the Metzeler brand. There has been a great resoponse from our previous two articles which included Avon and Dunlop. So once again we have tried to not complicate matter and just focused on some essentials regarding the Metzeler ranges.
