TVS Tyres For Dominar and KTM Motorcycles are available in Assam and Guwahati For now, will reach nationwide. Protorq 150 and 110 section tyres will be rolled out
The colossal KTMs in India have always donned the lovely Metzelers whereas the smaller, less powerful ones have sported the MRF’s as Original Equipment, abbreviated as OE. The all new Dominar 400 carries the same tyre specification as the KTM’s but it comes very well armed with MRF C1 and FC1 tyres. Most often KTM bikers switch to MRF tyres, which when tested recently, gave out subtle results, mainly because of cost reasons and customers are always on a lookout for more options.
Amongst the outstanding Indian manufacturers, we might expect TVS tyres accompanying the troop of combatants soon. TVS tyres have also conducted a basic know-how session and informed the onlookers and observers about the development when we went to the factory. This certainly indicates that soon they will be launching two new tyres nationwide. One with 150/60 17 for the rear, and the other one, 110/70 17 for the front.
In all the cases of probability, the tyres used will be soft compound radial tyres and consider their current pricing standards, they can be anticipated to bear the same price tag, blissfully of the current MRFs. Onlookers and Enthusiasts strongly expect the launch to take place by January-February 2018.
Once the vehicles are ridden by the test driving officers, only then we might be able to comment on the quality and grip, probably by comparing with MRF C1’s. Even then, while considering the Remoras which were tested on the Apache 200 onlookers continue to keep their expectations high. These tyres will also fit other motorcycles, current and upcoming, which will be using the same specifications and size.
TVS is currently a fast expanding and potent brand in the premium tyre faction and it also makes 140 section tyres, also known as 7 inchers, for motorcycles likes Yamaha R3, FZ/Fazer range, Suzuki Gixxers and others, both in radial and non-radial categories, under the brand name of Protorq.
