Michelin has launched a new tyre designed for 50cc supermoto style bikes: the Pilot Sporty.

Available in two sizes - 100/80 17 and 130/70 17 - these tyres feature front and rear tread patterns identical to the successful Michelin Pilot Sport radial which is designed for larger machines.

This semi-slick tread pattern offers excellent grip on all road surfaces without compromising tyre life and the bias casing construction ensures a comfortable ride and good damage resistance.

The Pilot Sporty is speed rated 'S' and can be run tubeless or with inner-tubes depending on the type of rim.

Approximate prices are £35 front and £45 rear including VAT.
