EICMA debut for latest Mitas scooter tyre range

A new Mitas scooter tyre line will be introduced at the EICMA motorcycle trade show in Milan next week. The Touring Force-SC is said to be “ideal for any scooter type” and is available in sizes for 10- to 16-inch rim diameters.

Describing the new range, Ksenija Bitenc, director of Mitas Motorcycle Tires and Tubes, shares that the Touring Force-SC “combines all the expertise we have acquired through the development of high performance radial motorcycle tyres and our involvement in scooter racing,” adding: “As a result, Touring Force-SC provides to all scooter riders and their passengers, safe, dynamic and comfortable riding, whether during a short city trip or for longer journeys as well.”

The tyre’s tread pattern was designed with urban use in mind, with a focus on water displacement and wear. Ending before the edge of the shoulder, the pattern is said to facilitate “optimum contact at maximum lean angles.” Ride comfort and handling also reportedly benefit from the design of the Touring Force-SC’s casing and the tread compound used. “The Touring Force-SC delivers great stability; precision on straights and bends and grip in all weather conditions,” shares Mitas Moto.

Bitenc concludes: “The unique tread compound of Touring Force-SC, using end-functionalised S-SBR elastomers together with high active reinforcing filler in combination with special resins, is a guarantee for high grip in wet and dry conditions. Riders start to feel this reliability and safety from the first moment on and through the whole lifetime of the tyre.”

The Touring Force-SC will be progressively rolled out next year and in 2019. Over time, the range will replace the current Mitas MC 13, MC 16, MC 18, MC 25, MC 26, MC 29, MC 28 and MC 38 line-ups.
