You want it for oyur RX? In that case, can I suggest Michelin M45 in 3.25x18?

I will let you know about availability tomorrow.

Viju,
You would want to go for old tread Nylo Grip tire of MRF for the RD?
Pretty sure that they are no longer in production and all that you will get would be old stock manufactured a few years ago. You will end up paying a premium for it which I feel you can get a lot of options in the market today.
Try the Michelin Sirac which comes in the 100/90, else you have the MRF Zapper Q.

Thanks Mahesh. I guess I will settle for the Zapper 100/90. After posting this query, I did check with the MRF dealers who said they are not in production anymore.

What would be a good option for the front tyre?

If you are going in for MRF Zapper Q tread, then go in for 90/90 in the front and 100/90 for the rear. They are the ideal combination.

But if you still insist on MRF Nylogrip, you can check with PC. He must be having some brand new tires with him

100% agree. Had them on my 500 for quite some time and they were really good. Same combination. Just reverse the direction of rotation for the front tyre (these are unidirectional rear tyres).

But Doc, I thought the Bullet came with 19 inches only, so would the MRF Zapper Q be available in 19 inches as well?

Also have heard a lot about its sure footedness in the wet, what is your take on it

PS: Have remembered to address you only as Doc instead of Doctor

Those are modified 18" wheels bro. Front and rear.

They are really excellent in the wet. I have also used them in the dirt.

Good tyres.

Hello Doc, sorry if I am not getting the obvious here, but why reverse the direction of rotation of the front tyre?

Because if you do not, the tyre wears unevenly and gets scalloped. Happened to a friend of mine on his Fiero when he mounted M45s on his front wheel. And I was told this by a couple of others as well. So did it, and never had a problem. Of grip or handling or uneven wear.
