HEAVY WEIGHT MOTORCYCLES (HWM) VERSION
The HWM special version (as in “Heavy Weight Motorcycles”) brings ROADTEC™ 01 performance to a wider range of motorcycles.
On these models, HWM version features increased stability by reducing both in intensity and duration the oscillations happening due to road irregularities or steering maneuvers. Distinguishable thanks to a “Weight” icon next to the product name on the tyre sidewall, the increased stability is reached by employing a 2-ply carcass on HWM rear tyres, where standard rear tyres have only 1 ply.
HWM front tyre version has the same 2-ply construction as the standard version, but benefits from stiffer carcass material and sidewall construction plus a slightly different compound recipe.
