Smartire, the active tyre monitor, will soon be available to UK riders thanks to a deal with Motohaus Powersports.

With safety firmly on the agenda and with tyre pressures so critical to the handling of modern high-performance motorcycles, SmarTire's wireless tyre monitoring system is claimed to be the most accurate and reliable tyre-monitoring product available to the motorcycle market.

Fitting Smartire requires the simple connection of the digital display to the motorcycle via just two wires, while the sensors can be most conveniently fitted the next time that the tyres are changed.

Price is £159.99, including VAT. Details from Motohaus Powersports on 01256 704909. Website:
