Tested on a variety of roads worldwide, the new Exedra Max design ensures excellent stability and fast response. Its have been optimized to reduce noise and improve efficiency for conduction, comfortable, smooth and economical.
The design of inverted V-shaped grooves helps to reduce wear, while maximizing the grip in any condition. The position of grooves on both flanks is designed to improve the linear driving and the feeling of rigidity, even in very heavy motorcycles. In the design of the front tire, the central sulcus, improving wet grip and the sensation of touch.
