Why do tyres matter?

Tyres are an important part of what defines the shape and balance of a motorcycle or scooter.

Did you know?

Tyres play an elemental role because they are the only link between the vehicle and the road. Your tyre contact patch is not much bigger than a credit card.

And they have a big job to do!

  • Transferring the power of the engine to the road
  • Absorbing the impact of irregular road surfaces
  • Carrying the load of the whole vehicle
  • Providing excellent grip on dry and wet surfaces
  • Meeting the demands of braking and acceleration
  • Steering by responding to the movements of the steering system
  • Lasting and ensuring good mileage


Your safety relies on more than just your vehicle
and the drivers around you.

It also relies on your choice of tyres. For your peace of mind and that of your loved ones, take the time to choose quality tyres. Taking the time to choose the right tyres is just as important as choosing your motorcycle or scooter.
