Prague, February 8, 2017 – Mitas, part of Trelleborg Group, is extending its TERRA FORCE-R dual-purpose tyre range and adding five new sizes from March 2017. After the extension, the range will include eight sizes. Mitas TERRA FORCE-R is designed for maxi enduro and trail motorcycles and is meant to be used 90% on-road and 10% off-road.
Ksenija Bitenc, Director of Motorcycle Tyres and Tubes Product Area, said: “By extending the 90/90-21 tyre size to V speed index (240 kilometers per hour), we will get a perfect set for a combination of 90/90-21 54V for front wheels and 150/70R17 69V for rear wheels.”
Bitenc added: “TERRA FORCE-R is our flagship product featuring advanced technologies, which are the result of in-house research and development. This gives the tyre excellent grip, optimal balanced wear and maximum confidence for riding on-road as well as off-road.”
The dual-purpose TERRA FORCE-R tyre is designed for daily commuters as well as adventurers who love longer trips with both passengers and luggage. Both groups of riders can enjoy a safe, user-friendly and dynamic riding experience. Riders will appreciate the excellent traction on wet or dry roads and outstanding performance on light off-road surfaces. Mitas TERRA FORCE-R’s street-oriented tread pattern ensures immediate grip, easy steering and maneuverability with good straight and corner stability. It is an excellent choice for riders of adventure motorcycles.
