Metro Launch Radial Tyres
METRO TYRES LIMITED HAVE LAUNCHED A BRAND-NEW SET OF RADIAL tyres for motorcycles starting at Rs 3,092. The new range, developed at the company’s research and development facility in Punjab with technology shared by Germany’s Continental Tyres, will be available for 150-cc motorcycles as well as 200- to 250-cc motorcycles.
These new tyres feature extra flexibility in the sidewall while the treads have higher rigidity. The plies in the tyres run radially without crossing over each other, thus allowing the tyres to flex more easily. According to the company, these tyres offer numerous benefits, including higher grip (both on straights and under cornering), a more cushioned ride quality and lower rolling resistance, which, in turn, lead to improved fuel economy.
