    I have used non radial ceat zoom tyres & believe me they were the worst tyres ever i used. Uneven wear , low life , puncture prone ....

    Anyone has any experience with Tvs ProTorq tyres?
    Just saw them at a dealership.The tread pattern looked nice and it was also economical. A 110/70-17 was quoted at 1900.

    Remember it's TVS that made Michelin's for Michelin. Their Remora and ProTorq are all made in the same facility. ProTorq being the upper motorcycle spectrum, vis a vis, the Masseter, Michelin Pilot Street Radial. Though I haven't gotten any hands on experience, they have a state-of-the-art facility with excellent manufacturing processes for the ProTorq series which should see better life on the road. I'd suggest, you definitely go for it if your budget allows and do post your detailed review along.

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    The life is not something that I am too much concerned about, I had a R15 and now I ride a cbr 250 since the past 1 year and I am not too happy with the handling of the bike , hence was on the lookout for a tyre which might help improve it.Had my eyes on the diablo rosso 2 but only 2015/16 stock available now. The reason mentioned by the delaer for the old stock was "DEMONITIZATION" .Saw the protorq at a dealer while enquiring about the rossos.

    There have been instances where dealers give away tires at a good price, owing to their age, cease of production and what not. ProTorq is the new kid on the block, though they've been launched quite some months back, they're slowly gaining momentum. Case in point, even JK tires have started producing tires for the two wheeler market right from scooters to the commuter segment.

    Hello guys! I have Hornet 160r since 2 years down the line. I recently change the rear tyre and installed michlen pilot. I could feel the difference from stock MRF. Stability is perfect. But still I would like to know if there are any drawbacks of the same. And also I will be installing michlen for front also before this rains.

    The only drawback would be lack of grip on the front till you change it. It's actually quite risky. I'd recommend change the front ASAP
