Even though the FIM Superbike World Championship will be making the change to 17” racing tires for the 2013 racing season, riders relying on Pirelli’s 16.5 inch road racing slick and rain tires will find they continue to be available in U.S. and Canadian markets.
“Pirelli’s road racing tire distributors continue to stock the latest construction and compound 16.5 inch road racing slicks and rains,” said Jeff Johnston, Pirelli North America’s Moto racing manager. ”Pirelli’s slogan ‘We race what we sell and we sell what we Race.’ isn’t merely lip service. It is consistently reinforced by our providing a broad selection of competitive performance products for amateur and professional racers alike.”
PIRELLI’S CURRENT 16.5-INCH TIRE RANGE:
120/75R420(16.5) 120/75R420(16.5) 190/65R420(16.5) 190/65R420(16.5) 120/75R420(16.5) 195/65R420(16.5)
