But after a 20km ride on his bike, i too have switched to the Metzeler Roadtec 1. Almost all of my Sunday morning rides are on the highway, so a sport touring tyre started making a lot more sense to me.
Wise decision.

In case the friend you have mentioned about happens to be Peyush, I got the tyres changed on my Tiger the same day Peyush got the Roadtec 1's for his Street Triple RS. I recall having a detailed discussion with him regarding the choice of tyres. Given the highways around Delhi, most of our running is on straight roads and hence it completely makes sense to get touring oriented tyres over outright corner carvers unless you are into trackdays.

Yup, it is indeed him. He is a good friend and we ride together on most weekends. He tours a lot more than i do so i trusted him with the choice of tires. One ride on his bike was enough to convince me to go ahead.

Absolutely agree with you that given the surroundings here, a sport touring tire made the most sense. As when i do start taking her to the track (wont be more than once or twice a year in any case), i can invest in a set of good track tires.

Interesting, I didn't know they are offering extended warranties, I might get one for my RS as well.

Is there a timeline for the purchase? I got my RS in March 2018.

Thank you.

Rohan have you had need for the warranty yet? If you were to De-Cat your exhaust and/or change the system would the entire warranty be void or just for the exhaust? The local dealer is quite cagey about this kind of information and insists that only official Triumph accessories are permitted.

Hi haven't had the need for the warranty yet. only the left side switchgear was changed but that was a part of a recall.

Since I plan to keep the bike for a fair bit I wanted the peace of mind. It's got a fair bit of complex electronics so I just wanted to be a bit more at peace.

De-cat would void the warranty for the engine and allied components as per the dealer here. I have the official Arrow exhaust and I am sticking with it.
