    Am sure, it's stability is something fantastic..but the grip on wet roads/off roads are bit scary.

    Does tyres with more grip pattern affect the speed of bike?

    Stock tyres is not good for the bike, bike manufacturing company( honda) use MRF tyres just because they are cheap
    Whenever i applied hard rear brake stock tyre skid but after change the problem just gone

    I think, less grip patterns in stock tyre are culprit. Which doesn't stick stronger with road. So the skid is happening

    I drive mostly in city conditions with 10% bad road. Tyre life also depends on storage of bike and life span. Even though bike is not in running condition, tyre will start cracking over the time.
    Till last year My tyres were in very good condition (22K) but now I have to park my bike outside and threads are all gone in these next 6K .
    Front tyre worn out, rear is developing cracks.

    I’m observing one side wear on my bike tyres. Clocked around 29k kms. Not much satisfied with the stock Nylon Tyres...Anyone here, upgraded to Timsun tyres? Would like to hear more on that. Pl let know if someone upgraded to Timsun.
