Motorcycle Tyre

SHARK-DM1220

Back

This innovative tyre profile, with its concise pattern, has been developed for particularly powerful motorcycles, so-called “big bikes”. The pattern was inspired by feathers, yet it has been laterally reversed to reduce width in the shoulder area of the tyre, so that less water is splashed when driving through puddles. The profile also ensures quieter running, improved traction at high speeds and a lower rolling resistance, thereby increasing the life of the tyre.

Statement by the Jury

The distinctive profile design of this tyre leads to enhanced functionality. Furthermore, the profile appears very dynamic and is thus, from an aesthetic viewpoint, well suited to “big bikes”.
