New Pirellis

For Du­cati Scram­bler

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

Pirelli have de­signed new en­dure/street tyres ex­clu­sively for the highly an­tic­i­pated new Du­cati Scram­bler range to fit front 3.00” x 18 and rear 5.50” x 17 wheel sizes. The MT 60™ RS 110/80 R18 front and 180/55 R17 rear have been spe­cially made for the Scram­bler to of­fer ex­cel­lent han­dling on any ter­rain. The MT 60™ RS has been a bench­mark for the seg­ment thanks to its abil­ity to com­bine sports-road per­for­mance with trac­tion on un­paved roads. Dur­ing the devel­op­ment of new sizes re­quired by Du­cati for the four ver­sions of the Scram­bler, Pirelli to­tally re­designed the MT 60™ RS in terms of spec­i­fi­ca­tions and per­for­mance with larger and more vari­able size ‘knobs’ along the edge. The re­sult­ing benefits are a re­duc­tion in brak­ing dis­tance and greater sta­bil­ity straights and whilst cor­ner­ing, and even the noise gen­er­ated by the tyre rolling is sig­nif­i­cantly de­creased.
