Reminder to check Motorcycle tyres pressures
Avon Tyres would like to remind motorcyclists to check their tyre pressures ahead of the motorcycling summer season.
Peter McNally, Avon Tyres? Technical Product Manager for Motorcycle tyres says: ?Tyre pressures on a motorcycle are critical to the safety of the rider aboard it ? there?s no other way of putting it...The tyre?s connection with the road has to be perfect and if the tyre is under inflated after a winter?s lay-off, the bike will not handle properly and it could be dangerous...
During testing for our range of tyres ? including our new VP2 Sports tyres ? we have seen how under-pressure tyres can degrade handling, affect steering, as well as leading to increased and un-even tyre wear.?
