Stay tuned as MotoUSA will be bringing you the daddy of all tire shootouts!
Steve-O here and I just want to give you an update of what’s in the works here at MotoUSA.
The excitement is building around the MotoUSA SoCal office as stacks and stacks of tires are showing up every day. Next week MotoUSA will conduct its biggest-ever all-inclusive high-performance street and race tire shootout to see who is top dog in the world of sportbike rubber these days. And we’ve formulated a pretty special way of conducting the test to keep it as fair and unbiased as humanly possible, though you’ll have to wait for the story to see exactly what it is. I can tell you, though, that we’ve got two different race tracks rented and will be logging countless street miles, all with full data acquisition equipped to each bike, aimed at bringing you the most comprehensive tire shootout the industry has ever seen.
From there we’re off to Skip Barber’s new KTM-powered track school at Laguna Seca and then straight to Indianapolis for the second Indy U.S. Grand Prix. Let’s hope the weather is a bit better this year so the world can really see what the Brickyard is capable of as a motorcycle racing venue. And you can bet MotoUSA will be there to bring you all the action and behind the scenes gossip for those that can't make it in the flesh. So stay tuned, because there’s plenty more excitement to come for all you sportbike nuts!
