Motorcycle Tyres for my KTM Super Duke Motorcycle

Kronreif, Trunkenpolz, Mattighofen - better known as KTM - is a leading manufacturer of off road bikes, producing some of the best Enduro, Motocross and Supermoto bikes in the world. From the late 1990s, KTM began producing street bikes, and by 2015 it had sold as many street bikes as off-road bikes. Our team at Protyre is considered one of the UK's leading tyre fitters and suppliers, because we are bike trained and experienced, setting us apart from other car-focussed garages. 

The KTM Super Duke is a street bike intended to redefine the term "streetfighter". It became an integral part of KTM's naked bike range, and personified the firm's philosophy of "endless power, highest precision, perfect ergonomics, finest ingredients". 

When you visit your local Protyre garage, we're keen to learn about your riding experience and all about the bike you own before we begin suggesting tyres. We consider every aspect of your daily needs and what would work best for you.

One of the biggest surprises of this model is how fuel efficient it is, and it only requires servicing every 9,320 miles (15,000 km). Details such as offering daytime running lights as standard highlight KTM's ingenuity, as does the way the Super Duke is designed to for you to stay on it for longer periods of time, and the special attention given to seat height and comfort. The ideal tyres for a KTM Super Duke motorcycle have excellent grip and are strong all-rounders. 

Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres enjoy a new tension design which balances the books between mileage, holding precision at maximum lean and excellent grip, for both on and off road riding. These tyres are responsive, engaging and often referred to as the "Rolls Royce of sporty road tyres". A new evolution of Dura Sil compoundQuick (a type of silicone designed to provide a waterproof barrier to construction surfaces) provides excellent handling in the wet, without sacrificing any of the precision and handling in dry conditions. 

Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro tyres offer great all weather performance, with three rear tyre size options to keep you going. A silica-supplemented compound enhances the tyre's wear resistance, at the same time maintaining consistency with performance throughout the tyre's life. Dunlop SportSmart tyres feature fast warm up and Eundurance-Championship standard grip. Its consistent tyre profile makes it perfect for naked bikes such as the Super Duke. 

When KTM designed and manufactured the Super Duke, it struck the perfect balance between power and handling, and provided the ability to control that power with remarkable precision in all weathers and conditions.
