2013 Phillip Island World Superbike Tire Analysis
The 2013 eni FIM World Superbike Championship opened up at Phillip Island with the new 17-inch Pirelli tires that had riders putting significantly better times on the boards compared to last year.
The Aprilia riders proved to be able to adapt best to the new tires right from the start and they also managed to find the best set-up in order to take advantage of the solutions Pirelli brought to the Australian round, as the two race results demonstrate.
The new Pirelli Angel GT tires debut on Basque soil in Bilbao for the unveiling of the latest arrival to the Ducati house, the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo.
In fact, the new Angel GT sport touring tire in the 190/55 R17 size on the rear and 120/70 R17 on the front will be standard equipment on this brand new version of the appreciated Borgo Panigale model as yet another demonstration of the strong "made in Italy" partnership between the two companies.
Angel GT conveys Pirelli's maximum DNA levels in terms of performance, which stays high for the entire life of the tire, as well as remarkable mileage that is at least 15% more than the Angel ST. The typical Pirelli sports attitude and top notch performance on wet roads goes along with this feature thanks to an in depth study of the compounds and geometry as well as the positioning of the grooves in the tread.
