“The Mitas Sport Force tyre line are the first radial motorcycle tyres made by Mitas. It is the result of an intensive four years of complete in-house development work. They are produced at the Savatech plant in Slovenia,” said Ksenija Bitenc, managing director Mitas Moto.

Savatech was acquired by ČGS Holding a.s. in October 2012, as the parent company of Mitas laid foundations for the Mitas Motorcycle Business Unit. Savatech’s and Mitas’ motorcycle tyres units were integrated into Mitas Motorcycle Business Unit, and Savatech-made tyres will be gradually rebranded as Mitas. The Sport Force is the first product from Mitas Moto.
