Scooter campaign at GoldenTyre – Riding scooters in any weather
HANOVER, GERMANY – January 24, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) - The trend towards retro scooters – sporty and stylish models often with cool modifications – as well as to large performance scooters, is increasingly apparent in urban areas, where there is demand for hip, two-wheeled transportation. Whether suited to business or sports, whether classic or glamorous – scooters are buzzing around our streets and our cities. Cheap mobility, twinned with great everyday usability, is forging enthusiasm in the young and old alike. The situation regarding driver’s licenses is just another of the many reasons for scooters’ current popularity.
The renowned Italian tire brand GoldenTyre, already well-established in the motorsports world, has recognized this trend and is introducing a new range of tires for scooters in 2012. GoldenTyre is revving up with an attractive range in new treads and sizes. The developers have tailored all of the new scooter-tire models to driver’s needs, and especially for everyday use in any weather.
GT 75 M+S
With the new GT 75 M+S, scooter riders can now brave even wintry or other unpleasant weather conditions, such as wet and slippery driving surfaces – they are ready for anything. Experts recommend riding with a lower tire inflation pressure in the cold season; with its reinforced carcass, this tire offers added safety and optimum grip in exactly these conditions. Its special sipe design, tailored to M+S requirements, does a superb job in wet conditions, in snow, or in slush. The GT 75 M+S winter tire for scooters is available in 10-, 12-, and 14-inch sizes. All sizes are RF designated (reinforced), with increased weight-bearing capacity – and are therefore also suitable for heavy scooter models.

Most vehicles in this high-power scooter segment run on 15-inch radial tires with the latest tire technology, perfectly suited to everyday street use and to medium-length trips.
