    They must have renamed the tyres then, because they must be still producing tyres in the same dimensions. Anyways happy riding with the new wheels

    It was really pain in the arse to get a tyre which you requested. For such a popular model they only kept stock OEM ones.

    Anyway I went with 80/90-17 masseter fx for front and zapper vyde 120/80-17 for rear
    masseter costed me 1475 and vyde around 2350

    I would say that a homegrown brand is much better than an import. I have been using the Apollo Alpha H1 on my KTM Duke 390 and have hardly any complaints with the tyre’s performance. It is also one of the most affordable high-performance bike tyres in the Indian market. Have ridden with the tyre for over 20,000 kilometres, including several long-distance trips in wet weather. The Apollo Alpha H1 has always felt well-planted and grippy at high speeds to me. In my opinions, imports might offer a slightly better performance but there is a wider price gap between them and homegrown brands.

    For the FZ, I would suggest to go with Masseter in stock size. Balanced cost, good performance.
    Radials or spending too much is a little overkill IMO.

    Whether i can fit MRF masseter 140/70 in fz v2? Will it touches the tyre hugger if so should i remove it?

    Also upgrading from 140/60 to 140/70 will cause any error in mileage or anything?

    The height of your bike will increase a little bit from the back side

    Guys, my bike is about to reach 10k (R3) and is due for a tyre change.
    I recently bought duke125 and love the grip of the mrf tyre that's on it.
    The tyres on the duke are mrf revz c1 110/70 r17 and revz c 150/60 r17.

    Although the specification of the front matches the front tyre of my yamaha, the rear does not.
    I found a version for the rear called mrf revz m 140/70 r17.

    Do you guys have any idea if this is a tyre with similar grip.

    The stock tyres that came with the bike had terrible grip from the beginning.

    I am looking for a new rear tyre for my Honda CBR 150R. After a little search online and talking to a tyre dealer near my home, I am thinking of getting the Apollo Alpha tyre with size 150/70-17.
    The stock tyre size is 140/70-17, will it fit on the stock rim and is it advisable to go for that increase in the bike tyre size?

    You can easily go one size up, it won't create any problem, moreover going only one size up on the stock rim is recommended, so go ahead no issues. And there are some very good reviews of apolo alpha tyres, so go ahead
