In India, Ceat has introduced Sportrad and Crossrad, two new steel radial tire models. For motorcycles with high performance, this premium line of steel radial tires is intended. Whereas the Crossrad is a multi-terrain tire, the Sportrad series is made for fast speeds and tight turns. Superior handling at high speeds is provided by the steel-belted radial construction of Steel Rad tires.
Crossrad tires, which cost Rs 4,300 for a set, are compatible with motorcycles from the Yamaha FZ and Suzuki Gixxer series. Sportrad series tires cost Rs 12,500 per set and are compatible with bikes like KTM RC390, Duke 390, Bajaj Dominar 400, and TVS Apache RR310.
The Sportrad platform has a silica-blended tread compound for a balanced stiffness and equidistant midcrown grooves for improved cornering stability. With features like optimized groove design for superior wet grip and cornering stability and slick shoulders for extreme lean angles, these tyres are built for speeds of up to 270 mph.
