Pirelli is happy about the “tenth important recognition” its Scorpion Trail II has gained in a comparative test. It says the tyre’s strong performance in the test conducted by Austrian motorcycling publication Motorrad Magazin (issue 5/2019) “confirms its position at the top of the enduro street segment.”
Pirelli reports that the K-spec version of its Scorpion trail II has been optimised for several models of KTM motorcycle. The tyre is now available for models of the KTM 1190 Adventure built from 2013 onwards and 2015 and 2016 models of the KTM 1290 Super. The TL Scorpion Trail II (K) is available in size the front wheel size 120/70 ZR 19 M/C 60W and rear 170/60 ZR 17 M/C 72W size.
The Ducati Multistrada tyre supply baton has been handed to Pirelli’s Scorpion Trail II – the direct successor to the Scorpion Trail is the first tyre to be named as original equipment for the new Multistrada 1200. The Pirelli tyre will be fitted in sizes 120/70 ZR17 (front) and 190/55 ZR17 (rear) to the Multistrada 1200, Multistrada 1200 S and Multistrada 1200 S D|air.
