    I'm at the edge to changing tyres. Bike is CBR is it's completed 25.5K. Both are stock contigo. I'm inclined towards Michelin for thread pattern + Brand repu + Good reviews, but on the other hand MRF do provide good grip as per fellow members here.

    I will change both of the tyre and with Michelin that would cost almost 9K but with MRF the cost would get down to ~7K. Is it really worth to spend 2k more for Michelin for an average rider who do city and occasional highway rides(once in a month).

    Moreover as per MRF site I didn't see Masseter of size 110/70 for CBR 250R, in that case I would have to go for Zapper or something else. How good it is as front tyre.

    Masseter are good performing g tyres. I personally use it, both on highway and city it has stood up on its commitment. You won't find it as sticky as Michelin but it's never the less. With proper set of tyre on front and rear you will find it very confidence inspiring. After heat up the masseter perform good and being a bias ply you won't find any big difference until you do extreme cornering which I haven't tried yet. For daily trips and regular long rides it has proven to be very good. Just a negligible difference is felt compared to Michelin. If you have a budget and use the CBR for normal use go for Masseter.


    For front - use MRF REVZ FC1. I am also planning to go for that. I am having a normal use for that FC1 is manageable. Or else you can go for Michelin for front. Just remember to use same pattern for a comfortable ride.


    Happy riding

    does the weight of tyre has any effect in the motorcycle... as i have found that all the foreign brand tyres weighs about 4 to 7 kgs.. whereas MRF masseter weighs 2 kgs (140/70r17)

    I guess Masseter is available in radial as well now.

    What's the difference between

    Rear - 140/70-17 MSX
    &
    Rear - 140/70-17 MASSETER-X MCT TL*

    The tyre are tube tyres.

    Could you please help me in selecting the tyres ?

    I need a tyres with good Grip on the corners and on the wet road.
    Also, i heard about the new MRF Masseter Tyres (but they are soft compound)

    Another question is can i go for Tubeless tyres ?
    And does it going to effect my handling as well as the mileage ?
    Or should i stick to the tube tyres?

    Thanks,
    If you have spoke wheels then there would be a problem. If it's the new mac wheels there shouldn't be an issue

    I know this because I contacted mrf with the same doubt. Msx is bias ply. MCT is multi compound. MCT have, would be better.
