Rear - 110/80 x 17 tubeless - The Apache 180's rear profile. - Which make ?
Yes, 90/90 x 17 is the Zapper FS. All RTR 180s come with TVS tyres.

I enquired in an MRF showroom sometime back, they said MRF makes that size but they did not have it in stock.

You can walk in to an MRF showroom to find out.

Guys, I have a 2004 pulsar 150 (with the spoked wheels - 18" I guess) and I wish to change the tyres now.

I am not an enthusiast and ride always inside the city with speeds mostly ranging between 40 - 70. Would prefer the (fat?) tyres of the 180 (I guess it will offer better grip?).

Please suggest the specs and brands for the same. PS: I live in Pune and any recommendations for outlets will also help a lot.

Hey guys, I have a 2005 Pulsar 150 UG2 with alloy rims. Plan to change the tyres due to Bangalore's horrible roads. I need better grip. Kindly suggest options under 2k.
Also, if I change to 110/90 or 120/90, will I need to change/modify anything else?
Thanks!

Have MRF made any changes to the compound of Zapper C?

Today i visited a tire shop and when i did a finger nail press test on both the tyres i found the Zapper C to be much softer than the zapper vyde!

Is it true that MRF might have softened the compound of Zap C a bit since its used in P220 as a soft compound? Or is it just my perception?

I am an a dilema as to which tyre to choose for my 180 UG3.I had my mind fixated on Zapp vyde since i believed it to be softer than C.But today's occurance has created doubt in my mind.

Experts,please suggest!

Bought a Michelin Sirac Street 100/90-17 for my Pulsar 150 UG3 today. It Costed about 2100/- Had a bit of trouble in sourcing the 17 inch tyre as most of them stock 100/90 18 inch. It was available at Millivision marketing (near Lalbagh) and at Popular Tyres on Dr. Rajkumar road. I chose the latter as it is close to my office and Bajaj service station. Will put the pics tomorrow, when I get the bike.

Michelin bike tyres will last quite long. Not to mention the superior build quality and unmatched road grip. Do post the pics.

Is the MRF Zapper range still the best bet for tube typed tyres ?

Any other recommendations ?

Michelin Sirac's. They are good enough and are available in Tube type.

What Sizes are you searching for?

Last week I changed my 2005 pulsar's rear with a Michelin Sirac and it cost me 2.2k for a tubeless variant including the special valve.

Bought a tube-type Michelin Sirac(front) for 1900.

The grip is amazing when compared to my previous MRF's.
