ADVENTURE MOTORCYCLE TYRE OVERVIEW

The dual sport/purpose motorcycle (BMW GS, Triumph Tiger/Xplorer, KTM Adventure etc.)is one of the largest in Europe and Africa, no wonder  tyre manufacturers put a lot of effort in to producing a tyre for almost any type of dual sport rider and the various terrains these riders aim to conquer. Finding the perfect tyre for your specific needs is to large extend a matter of preference. You will inevitably have to compromise between a mix of longevity/mileage, grip and reliability as you attempt to find that perfect balance to the conditions you anticipate to encounter on your dual sport bike.

I trust that the following summarized overview of these 17 tyres will go a long way in helping you choose the ideal tyre for your adventure motorcycle.
