Default Pirelli Supercorsa Tyres for the KTM

In one of the forums I had read a fellow forum member mention that they are available for the KTM, but can't seem to find that thread anymore.
Anyone know if this is true and where I could possible find them? The tire size is 110/70 front and 150/60 rear.
Thanks in advance.

Not sure about pirelli but Metzeler surely has those sizes. Just go on to their site and select your bike in the drop down menu and it will list the model of the tyre

In the following doc LINK, KTM has mentioned about four other option of tires for the KTM125 Duke and two of them are Metzer.
I have no idea about the availability in India, but have read someone mentioning (not sure which forum) about Pirelli Diablo rosso available in india.

Yes, I think I read the same post but can't seem to find it again. They even mentioned how much it costs so it was obviously available here in India.

The Pirelli's are probably available here in Bangalore. I have heard that a store called Millivision Marketing Pvt. Ltd got them or can source them. Haven't yet got a chance to check with them.

Will be really keen/interested to know if the Metzeler's could be sourced here as well.

Per law, all the import non ISI brand tires has been banned for nearly a year now; so check the month & year of manufacture of PSD when you buy them. With so much of hype going on for PSD these days, I wouldn't be surprised if the fake ones are floating around!!!

Unless...PSD tires have started appearing with ISI mark (God knows how)

The Pirelli Sport Demons that are available are old stocks. I'm hunting for the PSD for my front wheel in 110/70/17 size and i've been quoted almost 4k for it. I paid lesser than this for a 140 profile rear tire last year.

Metzeler is available/can be sourced. Check with indiMotard.

Whatever is available are old stocks that are left over. I spoke with the branch head for Pirelli in Blore and he confirmed that ISI issue is still not resolved and hopefully it should see the light of the day soon. Fingers crossed.

Why not try the MRF 110/70-17 RADIAL? I'm using on my CBR & found it absolutely great both on wet & dry weather. As a matter of fact, I found them great accidentally & not with real testing

I hope it's better than MRF or any good than PSD?

Yea, why will it get resolved? If it gets resolved, no local manufacturers can survive!!! If it sees light, they've to make money only through TVS XL & scooter tires!!!

I remember reading an English journo's review on the D200's MRFs (not sure abt the site, think it was visordown.com) where he said the tyres had good grip but once they lost traction it never regained it unlike other brands. He also said the metzlers and pirellis were much more confidence inspiring and if you could drive the MRFs to the limit then you'd be a pro on the superior tyres.

This was tested by me for real on my trip to b'lore from chennai when a jeep in front of me came to a dead stop without any brake lights, I realised a bit late and jammed on the brakes...the front was slowing down but the rear stepped out of line first on one side and then fishtalied violently to the other and I finally came to a halt millimeters behind the jeep...sideways but luckily with the tyre side down.

Checked their home page - http://www.metzelermoto.com/web/default.page & India is not listed.

Are they coming through the same route as PSD's then?

Default Re: Pirelli Supercorsa Tyres for the KTM

So i finally managed to source the Pirelli Sport Demon 110/70/17 for my ninja's front wheel.

Only 2 places in blore where it is available - Millivision Marketing (Mr. Nagraj) and Cherry Agencies (Mr. Arun).

Cherry quoted me Rs. 3850 and Millivision quoted Rs. 3500/-

I paid 3800 for my 140/70/17 rear tire last year. Obviously since there are only few pieces lying around the prices have shot up.

Anyone who still needs the PSD's please buy them soon. Millivision only has 2 tires in 110 size and a handful in 130 size. No 140 available.
