It’s not long since the news of Yamaha’s retro-inspired XSR700 came out, adding to the news, it is official that Yamaha XSR700 will be equipped with Pirelli’s Phantom Sportscomp tires.  Front tire size will be 120/70-17, with a 180/55-17 in the rear. Apart from these sizes, the Sportscomp tires are also available in 100/90-18 for the front, and 150/70-17 for the rear. The tire sizes used in XSR700 will also be available with a W speed index, for use on vintage bikes as well as naked or sporty bikes, by August start.

XSR700 is a production version of the recently unveiled ‘Faster Sons’ concept by the famous Japanese custom bike builder Shinya Kimura. It is more or less based on the popular FZ-07, the XSR700 uses the same 700cc parallel-twin that has the same lightweight aluminum chassis and the 270° crankshaft. A special steel-belted construction is utilized by the Sportscomp tires to help minimize expansion and deformation at speed. Apart from this, tire’s profile is comparatively more round than the previous ones. The Sportscomp tires are known for fast warm-up times and a better grip in the wet due the presence of high silica percentage in it.

According to a Pirelli press release, the Phantom Sportscomp tires were chosen for “the tire’s perfect mix of vintage looks and contemporary technology.”
