April launch for Mitas Terra Force-R
The latest maxi enduro and trail bike tyre from Mitas, the Terra Force-R, will go on sale next month in one front wheel and two rear sizes. The tyre is an upgrade of the MC30 pattern and is intended for 90 per cent on-road and ten per cent off-road use. Mitas considers the Terra Force-R the “ideal choice for commuters as well as for adventurers who love longer rides with a passenger and luggage.”
Mitas says the aim when developing the Terra Force-R was to provide both target groups a safe, dynamic and user-friendly tyre. “Mitas Terra Force-R is an excellent choice for riders of adventure motorcycles,” commented Ksenija Bitenc, managing director for Mitas Moto. ” Terra Force-R is a radial dual purpose tyre with a more street oriented tread pattern. It offers an excellent traction on wet or dry roads and outstanding performance on light off-road surfaces.”
The manufacturer tested the Terra Force-R on various different motorcycles in a range of weather conditions. What did it find? “Mitas Terra Force-R ensures immediate grip, excellent traction on wet or dry roads, easy steering and manoeuvrability with good straight and corner stability,” shared Mitas in a statement, adding that the tyre also delivers “consistent performance through its lifetime and under heavy loads.”
The Terra Force-R will be available in the front wheel size 110/80R19 59V TL as well as in sizes 140/80R17 69V TL and 150/70R17 69V TL for the rear.
