A quick recap.
We recently received the Apollo Tramplr STs and found them to be a set of well-thought-out motorcycle tyres. Be it in terms of build, design or purpose, these seemed to check all the right boxes. But, their pricing - at Rs 4,500 for the front and Rs 6,000 for the rear - did seem steep. The Tramplr ST is part of Apollo’s on / off-road range of motorcycle tyres, with a bias towards 'on-road'. But, for those looking for a blockier, more aggressive tread pattern for better bite off-road, there is the more expensive Tramplr XR. Furthermore, unlike the XR, which uses radial construction, the ST is a cross-ply tyre.
Now just to set the stage: our impressions about the ST were before we mounted the tyres on the motorcycle. In addition, the STs - 100/80 front and 140/70 rear - were going to replace 110/70 and 140/60 front and rear tyres, respectively. But, the latter were radials.
