I was just looking around for a new set of Pirelli.
Would this rebate be available in Australia?
I'll download the form and have a crack at it.
I am not sure.
Anyone know the best touring tire they have?
If you’re looking for full blowing touring tires I don’t know what/how their offerings stack up.
My bike came stock with the Angel GT. I just put on their newest iteration Angel GT II.
It is a great sport touring tire.
The Michelin Road 5 and Pilot Road 4 are also highly regarded.
I’ve never ridden one but from what I can tell the the Road 5 has great wet weather technology, probably best in class, the Angel is very good in that category also though.
Both have excellent dry weather grip. The Pirelli looks to be a bit more aggressive in its profile and sounds like it turns in quicker and might be better suited if you like to ride very spirited and do lots of twisty roads.
I had debated going either Road 5 (just to try it) or going the other direction with a true street sport tire (Diablo Rosso III or Dunlop Sportmax Q3+).
Figured I would probably love the grip of the sport tires and not want to go back but would only get about half the life.
Not to diminish the grip performance of the Angel, it is very good and you can ride very hard/aggressive with them.
In the end decided the Angel GT II is probably the best fit for my style of riding and getting some extended life.
Also, looks like some of the other manufacturers are currently offering rebates also. I just knew about Pirelli because that is what I bought.
