What are the best tyres for my Motorcycle?
With the vast range of Motorcycle tyres available today, it can be difficult to choose the correct tyre for your riding style. So here are some of the many things to consider.
Firstly, the style of bike needs to be considered. Sports touring, Superbike, Motocross, track bikes, dual sport or Cruiser. They all have different needs and applications. Dual Sports Motorcycles will require tyres that can be used on road and off-road, while track bikes require sticky slicks for better cornering. And while they may work well on the correct bike, swapping them with each other will likely be dangerous.
Secondly, you will need to evaluate the tyres in each range. Sports touring motorcycles, often get ridden on faster weekend rides as well as longer tours. For this reason, they are expected to have a relatively high edge grip while the harder, centre compounds are needed to survive the longer touring KM.
Thirdly, the selected roads and road condition will play a large roll in tyre longevity. Several thousand kilometers of straight highway usage will cause the middle of the tyre to square off if the tyre is a softer compound.The same distance through winding roads will keep the shape of the tyre longer.
