ContiRoad: Handling, Mileage and Grip
Last November 3rd, during the last Grand Prix of the MotoGP season, Triumph announced their new 2023 Street Triple model line-up. The British brand has presented three versions, including the Triumph Street Triple R, equipped as standard with Continental ContiRoad, a sport-touring tires of great versatility and performance. Developed in Germany by Korbach’s engineering team, they feature the genes of the ContiRoadAttack 3: agile handling, great mileage, and excellent grip.
The ContiRoad is characterized by road handling, offering great agility in cornering. It is radial, versatile and is positioned as a road tire, asphalt and framed in a wide type of sport-touring tire. It can be used both by the user who uses two wheels on a daily routine, as well as by those who spend their weekends putting miles on their motorcycle.
Durability is also another of their strong points, as they have been created to provide high mileage thanks to the non-cutting grooves in the central area of the tread.
Road conditions are not a problem for the ContiRoad either, as they feature the new silica technology that guarantees excellent wet grip and optimal water evacuation. In addition, they have the Continental ZeroDegree structure, a belt that groups the radial casing, which provides greater stability and confidence, achieving a great absorption of the irregularities of the road.
The ContiRoad is designed to satisfy the requirements of riders wanting good performance in a safe and durable sport-touring tire.
For its part, the new Triumph Street Triple R 2023 evolves in every way. Taking advantage of the brand’s presence in Moto2, the 765 cc three-cylinder engine has managed to increase its performance from 118 to 120 hp. The rest of the internal modifications and gear ratios and transmission have also had an impact on greater acceleration. The ABS system, traction control and TFT panel have also undergone improvements.
In addition to this new mount, the ContiRoad is fitted as standard on the KTM 890 Duke, 390 Duke and RC 390 models.
