For the introduction of new sizes in its custom-touring tyre range, the manufacturer from Milan organized a 3000 kilometer tour with 5 stops astride the latest model Harley-Davidson bikes.
As for the tread, the pattern was designed to ensure a new performance level. The heart of Night Dragon development is represented by the optimization of the tread pattern with the contact area to ensure ideal contact between the bike/tyre and the road surface in any riding conditions. The grooves are concentrated exactly where they're needed, leaving more rubber in contact with the surface to ensure traction and grip in any situation.
The pattern of the front tyre changes depending on the bike and the structure of the tyre, because while the radial structure is needed for higher performance bikes, conventional tyres provide the comfort that touring riders prefer, so they must have different grooves. Both the tread patterns for radial and conventional, in keeping with Pirelli style, ensure quick response and handling as well as a fun ride. This way bikers can choose whether to ride their bike with a traditional custom touring style or to explore the full potential of their bikes. Furthermore, the radial contact is wider and has less grooves to ensure that more rubber comes into contact with the asphalt and supports the performance of more powerful and sporty customs.
