FUEL 15 litres @ 49mpg = 165 miles WEIGHT 193kg SEAT 790mm POWER 63bhp TORQUE 49ftlb THE RIDER James Archibald Big miles rider who en­joys be­ing on a bike what­ever the weather/sea­son I’ve cov­ered 3800 miles on the Met­zeler Road­tec 01 tyres, but af­ter two track­days and plenty of mo­tor­way miles I’d worn them near to the le­gal limit across the mid­dle of the tread. I hon­estly think that they’re the best all-round tyres I’ve used and while I’m sorry to see them go, I’m also ex­cited to try a set of Pirelli’s Di­ablo Rosso IIIS to make the most of the short sum­mer we’re granted in this coun­try and also plan to do a few more track­days. They’re a sportier tyre than the Met­zel­ers and it’ll be in­ter­est­ing to see how they com­pare to the tour­ing based rub­ber I’ve been used to be­fore. I can’t wait to test them out prop­erly.

James plumps for stick­ier rub­ber
