Prague, 2 June 2014 – Mitas Sport Force successfully faced tough competition in the recent tyre test organised by Motorrad, one of Europe´s most important motorcycle magazines.
After the launch event of Sport Force in autumn 2013, Mitas was invited to face the hardest test procedure performed by the Motor Presse Stuttgart publishers, which are present all over Europe. Mitas Sport Force participated with the dimensions 120/70ZR17 and 180/55ZR17 mounted on the latest model of the Honda CB 1000 R (ABS).
Tyres in the test were divided into two categories: Value and Premium. Mitas Sport Force won the Value Brand category and was selected as Best Buy reaching 208 out of 250 points. The results give Mitas Sport Force a good standing for competing in the Premium Brands category as well. Especially in its scoring in categories that are noticed most by sport riders like adhesion (declination / lean angle) and adhesion (acceleration out of curve), Mitas Sport Force reached the same maximum score as all the other brands in the Premium category.
In the categories of Manageability and Steering Precision Mitas Sport Force decisively won out over the top brands from Italy, France, Japan and U.K. Only Continental Road Attack Evo 2 scored higher in dry conditions.
