Prague – Mitas Sport Force has been selected as ‘Best Buy’ in a tire test organised by European motorcycle magazine Motorrad.
After the launch event of its Sport Force in autumn 2013, Mitas was invited to face the test procedure by the Motor Presse Stuttgart publishers. The tire participated with the dimensions 120/70ZR17 and 180/55ZR17 mounted on the latest model of the Honda CB 1000 R (ABS).
Tires in the test were divided into two categories: Value and Premium. Mitas Sport Force won the Value Brand category and was selected as Best Buy reaching 208 out of 250 points.
The results give Mitas Sport Force a “good standing” for competing in the Premium Brands category as well. The Czech tire maker said in terms of scoring in categories important to sport riders – such as adhesion (declination / lean angle) and adhesion (acceleration out of curve), Mitas Sport Force reached the same maximum score as all the other brands in the Premium category.
Mitas also said in the categories of Manageability and Steering Precision the tire decisively won out over the top brands from Italy, France, Japan and UK. Only Continental Road Attack Evo 2 scored higher in dry conditions.
