ERJ staff report (TP)
Hanover, Germany – Continental announced that its ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo touring sport tire will be original equipment on the new BMW R 1200 RT.
Heavyweight touring motorcycles like the BMW pose a particular set of challenges for tires, which is why Continental engineers in Korbach, Germany have included the ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo especially for this vehicle class in the product range.
Continental said: “The tire's most outstanding characteristic is the innovative structure of the carcass. A reinforced design with a second carcass layer delivers enhanced stability and easy handling for heavyweight bikes. Wear resistance was also improved, and the tire mileage is now even better.
“The ContiRoadAttack 2 GT is equipped with the motorcycle tire manufacturer's three core technologies. MultiGrip ensures homogeneously graduated grip between the zenith and shoulder areas, strong grip when cornering, and simultaneous high mileage. The TractionSkin label refers to the tire's roughened surface for an exceptionally safe and short break-in period. What's more, the zero-degree steel-belt construction provides maximum stability at high speeds and a low kickback tendency.”
