No matter what motorcycle, it is a fact that they will deal with city conditions the most. In the city, the roads are a mix of tarmac, concrete, potholes, uneven surfaces and gravel. Now, this is basically the most difficult terrain to deal with, because you never know which of these you might encounter. This is where the ActiGrip’s tyres shine.
Even under varied terrain, there is no dearth of grip thanks to the Smart V pattern. What was also impressive is that steering the bike even at slow speeds remains the same and does not feel heavier even though these are heavy. Even on concrete surfaces in the wet, the tyres make you feel confident which a big deal because these are block pattern tyres.
Out on the highways, again, straight line stability feels great. But what is more apparent than before is the tyre noise. The block pattern does make the tyre a little more audible than road biased tyres but it’s not bad enough to be intrusive. Even braking performance has gone up and the tyres definitely inspire a lot more confidence under hard braking.
