The expo witnessed the launch of sport touring tire Roadhound and off-road tire Climber XC
Eurogrip, one of the fast-growing global brands in the powered two-wheeler tires segment, announced the international launch of two new world-class products: Roadhound, a sport touring tire and Climber XC, an off-road specialty tire at the 2022 EICMA Motor Show in Milan, Italy.
The newly launched Roadhound is a sport-touring tire with dual compound technology on rear radial sizes.
It features excellent grip on dry and wet surfaces and improves handling and comfort on naked, sport, and touring motorcycles.
The tire profile, tread pattern, and structure have been engineered to provide high mileage and performance consistency. The tires will be available from early 2023 with a size range covering both radial and x-ply applications.
Climber XC is a tire for motocross, enduro, and cross-country applications, designated for leisure, training, and competition.
It has been developed and fine-tuned with expert inputs from motocross and enduro racing teams to provide excellent traction and lateral support on multiple surfaces.
Extended tire service life is ensured by a knobby layout and geometry boosting wear and tear resistance, coupled with a symmetrical shape allowing wheel reversibility.
“In 2022, Eurogrip has been the ‘underdog,’ the unexpected player that changed the game,” commented Renato Zilli, Senior Advisor – Sales & Marketing, “We have strengthened our presence across the globe targeting the upper segment of the range.”
Apart from the new launches, around 25 globally available Eurogrip flagship products are on prominent display at Hall 9- Stand 088.
This includes recently launched products such as the BEE family of tires for urban and countryside scooter mobility, including BEE Connect, BEE City, their flagship zero-degree steel belted radial Protorq Extreme, and the newly launched E-Torq for electric scooters, among others.
“All Eurogrip products are the result of multiple development cycles aimed at bringing together the best of all the tire components,” mentioned Silvio Montanari, Head of R&D activities at the Milan Global Product Design Center, “3D modeling and FEA-based predictive technology are complemented with extended testing in both indoor and outdoor real-life conditions, stressing the tire to ensure it is properly tuned before being released to the market.
Roadhound and Climber XC are two prime examples of this approach, as they have been carefully scrutinized in every development step to ensure their performances exceed rider expectations.”
Eurogrip tires are created with technology that seamlessly blends superior mileage, high performance, and durability.
All Eurogrip products are researched, designed, and developed jointly by the company’s Italian and Indian R&D and product development teams and have been thoroughly tested by independent professional riders across the globe.
Speaking on occasion, P Madhavan, EVP of Sales and Marketing, said, “As we continue to focus on innovation and quality while building Eurogrip into a strong global brand, as always, we are pleased to be here at EICMA.
This is a great forum to launch our new premium products, Climber XC and Roadhound, and we are happy to showcase these to the global market.”
EICMA 2022, an annual Milan auto show, witnessed the participation of several key industry players, media, and motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide.
