PIRELLI MT 60‰гў RS

The Chosen Tyre of the DUCATI SCRAMBLER
Pirelli have announced that they have developed a new version of the MT60 RS specifically for the new Ducati Scrambler range.

The new sizes of MT 60RS are planned to be available in Australia early next year, in conjunction with the new Scrambler release locally.

The MT 60‰гў RS is the Pirelli tyre designed for the DUCATI SCRAMBLER, the latest model launched by the Borgo Panigale company in four versions: Icon, Urban Enduro, Full Throttle and Classic.

The front 3.00' x 18' and the rear 5.50' x 17' wheels of the DUCATI SCRAMBLER are designed to be lightweight and will fit as original equipment the new enduro street tyres from Pirelli, the MT 60‰гў RS 110/80 R18 front and 180/55 R17 rear. These have been specially made for the DUCATI SCRAMBLER with a dedicated design of the knobs which offers excellent handling on any terrain.

Also for the new DUCATI SCRAMBLER, a contemporary motorcycle which offers the perfect mix of tradition and modernity, which expresses the pure essence of motorcycling, Ducati chose Pirelli confirming the strong link between the two Italian companies.

MT 60‰гў RS is a product present in the enduro street range of Pirelli tyres for many years and has always been a benchmark for the segment thanks to its ability to combine sports-road performance with traction on unpaved roads. During the development of new sizes required by Ducati for the four versions of the DUCATI SCRAMBLER, Pirelli has totally redesigned the MT 60‰гў RS in terms of specifications and performance.

The tread pattern of the sizes of the MT 60‰гў RS designed ad hoc for the DUCATI SCRAMBLER presents larger and more variable size ‰Ычknobs‰ЫЄ along the edge, thus giving rise to a design of multi-pitch compared to the single-pitch that characterized the original tyre. This results in a significant decrease of the land/sea ratio, and in the increase of the contact surface with the reduction of the mobility of the knobbly tread.

The resulting benefits are a reduction in braking distance thanks to the work of the front tyre and greater stability both on the straight and whilst leaning. Finally, thanks to the multi-pitch tread design, even the noise generated by the tyre rolling on the asphalt is significantly decreased compared to the original MT 60‰гў RS.

The product upgrade is completed by new compounds and takes advantage of the experience gained in this area by Pirelli in recent years. At the front we used a compound, which is derived directly from the sporty DIABLO ROSSO‰гў II, with a balanced content of silica and Carbon Black, which provides a dynamic riding, with a high grip both on dry and wet surfaces.

Regarding the rear, the choice has fallen on a sport touring compound with high silica content so as to ensure long distances and a high grip on wet.

Finally, it was also completely redesigned the structure of the front tyre that in the past was radial with cross-ply belts and now became radial but with a 0еЎ steel belt, with significant benefits in terms of stability and steering precision.
