PIRELLI ANGEL GT SPORT WINS MCN TYRE OF THE YEAR AWARD
September 18 2013.


The Pirelli Angel GT has today been named Motor Cycle News 'Tyre of the Year'. The tyre, launched in April, has become an instant hit thanks to its diverse appeal, class-leading mileage, high safety feeling in the wet and the Pirelli sporting DNA.


The GT was launched to the World's media on the deck of Europe's largest aircraft carrier and was extensively tested at the Nardo handing track in Southern Italy. What impressed many was its outright grip and performance at this test, especially from a tyre with such high durability in the all-important Sports Touring segment. These dual attributes are why the tyre is denoted Gran Turismo.

Promoted heavily at the MCE British Superbike Championship as the road tyre to ride to the races throughout 2013, the tyre was also nominated best in it's class by Moto Journal, Moto Magazine, PS Das Sport and Motorrad Magazin.

The MCN Best Tyre Award, unlike those for Best Motorcycle in each type of market segment, offers just one overall winner, making this Sports Touring tyre's accolade even more impressive.
