Working through its sole UK Trade Distributor, Bike Tyrestore, Sava, the tyre manufacturer based in Slovenia, reports that the United Kingdom market is now one of its most important destinations for replacement scooter and motorcycle tyres.

A story posted yesterday on and Trader Daily News reported that aftermarket scooter spares distributor VE will now be offering Sava product to UK trade customers within the established trading pattern.

Clarifying a few points in the story Bike Tyrestore managing director Peter Smith explained: "We are of course delighted to have VE on board distributing the range of Sava scooter tyres, but we should explain that Sava is not part of the Goodyear Group, as stated in yesterday's story. From this year, Sava is a part of the CGS group.

"Sava also continues to provide OEM equipment for Piaggio, Gilera, Aprilia, Vespa, Peugeot, Yamaha, LML, Rieju and others, although, to be perfectly accurate, the only OEM equipment supplied to Suzuki has been for the Marauder model."
