Pirelli introduced today its latest motocross tyre offering with the unveiling of the all-new SCORPION™ MX32™ PRO rear motocross tyre.
This tyre has made its Australia debut at the 2016 Motul MX Nationals Appin round with the Manufacturer supported Pirelli Partners of National Pump Monster Energy Kawasaki Team, Crankt Team Honda Racing and Wilsons Cool Air Motul Suzuki teams and their riders. This tyre is now available to all riders around Australia.
Pirelli-supported race teams in the United States in the Supercross and Motocross Championships, as well as test riders and engineers spent countless hours developing the new MX32 PRO before unveiling the design that provides maximum performance and durability. Whether its recreation or competition, wet or dry, the MX32 PRO is sure to outshine the competition.
“The entire Pirelli team has put an extensive amount of time into the development of the new MX32 PRO rear tyre,” said Pirelli motocross tyre technical specialist, Doug Schopinsky. “The end result is a highly versatile tyre that performs extremely well in a variety of conditions and across a wide range of skill-sets.”
Boasting larger block sizes, or “knobs”, the MX32 PRO increases the tread contact area and improves durability on both MidSoft and MidHard soil types. Large void area between the tread pitches assures good self-cleaning. Modified side knobs feature “dimples” to optimize lean angle grip and stability for maximum traction and control in turns. Casing depressions, including the iconic Scorpion mark, increase plant and ride comfort, while the tread spacing and crown radius profile broaden the range usage.
Pirelli Moto Product Manager Link International – “We are all very excited about the introduction of the Scorpion MX 32 PRO for Australia riders. Complementing the already race winning Scorpion MX32, the new MX32 PRO give us a race winning tyre for mid-soft to mid-hard conditions that’s also very durable, perfect for Australian motocross tracks.”
The MX32 Pro rear tyre will be available in 110/90-19 (RRP $119.00) and 120/80-19 (RRP $125.00) sizes and hits authorized Pirelli tyre dealers from June 1, 2016.
