Leading manufacturers Dunlop and Michelin have introduced two new 12” fitments. The new 110-70x12 tyres are the standard front tyre size on selected models from Royal Alloy, Scomadi, and Vespa Sprint 2014 onwards.

Dunlop Scootsmart: The ScootSmart range combines the precision handling, braking, and traction that owners demand allowing confidence both in traffic and cornering, with excellent performance in both wet and dry conditions. Tyre life has not been overlooked. The ScootSmart balances its road handling properties with great longevity thanks to its tread pattern allowing lower rolling resistance and silica content whilst still maintaining excellent grip under all road conditions.

Michelin Powerpure: The Power Pure tyre from Michelin has been designed to give owners enhanced grip across the entire tread pattern, utilising a Dual Compound structure to promote confidence in cornering which in turn promotes safety. The centre portion of the tread features a harder compound to provide lower rolling resistance while increasing the amount of rubber in contact with the road, with the shoulders of the tyre being constructed from a softer rubber to enhance grip in the corners.
