Range extension for Pirelli MT 60™ RS
Pirelli MT 60™ RS continues to be successful and very popular with motorcyclists. After being chosen in 2014 for the Ducati Scrambler, the tyre from the enduro street line of Pirelli is growing and extending its range also equipping the new model of the Scrambler family. The new Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 rides on Pirelli MT 60™ RS as original equipment tyres in 110/80 R 18 M/C 58H TL front (the same supplied to Ducati Scrambler 800) and the new 160/60 R 17 M/C 69H TL rear. This best fits the new 399 cc model, rather than the 180/55 R 17 M/C 73H TL of the Ducati Scrambler 800 versions, including the new Pro Flat Track. Pirelli MT 60™ RS therefore, has undoubtedly an extremely powerful bond with the family of the new Ducati brand of which it equips all models, but in addition to the sizes for Ducati Scrambler and Scrambler Sixty2, Pirelli, given the strong demand and interest from part of a wide audience motorcycle, decided to make it available in other sizes. From now on the MT 60™ RS is available also in 120/70 front and 180/55 rear sizes both with a (W) speed index which, along with the new 160/60 rear of the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2, join the other sizes which were already available in the range. MT 60™ RS is present in the enduro street range of Pirelli motorcycles tyres and has become a reference for the segment due to its ability to combine sporty road performance with excellent grip, even on unpaved roads. The new Ducati Scrambler family was an opportunity for Pirelli to develop new sizes and to redesign this product in terms of specifications and performance. The tread pattern of the new sizes (including those for the Ducati Scrambler family) presents larger and more variable size blocks along the edge, thus giving rise to a design of multi-pitch compared to the single-pitch that characterised the original tyre.
