Tyres. Easily neglected but undeniably one of the most crucial components on a vehicle. And in the case of motorcycles or scooters, even more, simply because it’s the very thing that keeps it in contact with the ground underneath. So, what happens if you turn a blind eye towards them? Well, you'll only end up doing more harm to yourself and your beloved machine than good. So, having a good set of tyres is of the utmost importance when riding any vehicle. This is where the new TVS Remora and ProTorq tyres come in.
Now, for those not in the know, TVS Motor Company, apart from manufacturing two-wheelers, also has a separate entity by the name of TVS Tyres which has been manufacturing tyres for little more than 35 years now. The company specialises in offering a wide spectrum of tyres for 2/3-wheelers in the domestic as well as international market. And to top it off, they also have their in-house R&D centre for designing new tyres. On that note, one can safely say that the guys at TVS Tyres are well versed when it comes to manufacturing tyres. So with more performance-oriented motorcycles being introduced in the market, the company has developed a new range of tyres to cope with the requirements.
So, the set of tyres we have here are meant for motorcycles like the Hero Xtreme 200R, Honda X-Blade and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. What's more, TVS has provided the front and rear tyre with different names - TVS Remora for the front and Eurogrip Protorq Sport SR for the rear, to be precise. Among the list of bikes deemed most compatible, we decided to have the Apache RTR 200 4V shod with these tyres, and put them to test. In the following introduction report, we cover the design, construction and material aspects that have gone into making these tyres.
