      SAFETY

      Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.

      WARNING

      The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

      The new NIGHT DRAGON GT extends the legacy of the NIGHT DRAGON, a premium tire line Pirelli introduced in 2008 for cruiser, touring, and custom motorcycle users looking for quality mileage, style and performance – and at a very competitive price. The new NIGHT DRAGON GT extends this enjoyment, and offers up to 20% more mileage. To reach this target, Pirelli engineers revamped the tire structures and compound, while preserving the same profiles and tread pattern to maintain handling and water evacuation.

      Compound
      The new compound of NIGHT DRAGON GT features a ‘Full Carbon Black’ formulation that combines different types of thermo reactive polymers to combine high mileage and grip. From a chemical point of view, this is a challenging task given the different characteristics of these polymers, which is akin to combining oil with water! Thanks to Pirelli’s unique patented mixing process, combining special resins and plastifying agents, our engineers achieved a compound breakthrough. The result is a compound with a high homogeneity level that warms up quickly thanks to the Carbon Black, as well as delivering grip, wet performance, and high mileage.

      Profile
      The NIGHT DRAGON GT has the same profile as the original Night Dragon. It features a wide single radius contour that ensures a progressive behavior when entering the bend and to support the bike at every lean angle. It also shapes the contact area correctly from straight to full lean, for a crown area to ensure maximum traction.

      Tread Pattern design
      The NIGHT DRAGON GT maintains the original Night Dragon tread pattern design to guarantee high performance and excellent water drainage and mileage needs of these riders.

      The NIGHT DRAGON tread design’s strength is its optimization of the contact patch area, offering ideal contact between the bike and road in every possible riding condition to deliver the power to the ground.

      Grooves are concentrated exactly where needed, putting more rubber on the ground to ensure traction and grip in every situation. The central rib is always in contact with the road surface, providing the right grip, feel and a stable tread area for higher mileage.

      On the mid shoulder there is a small additional groove to optimize the lean in, ensuring mechanical grip while maintaining a neutral and predictable behavior. The unique groove design helps eliminate irregular wear.

      The NIGHT DRAGON GT tire features a unique design to provide unbeatable grip and stability at every lean angle in the dry. The specially placed grooves between the crown and tire’s edge efficiently evacuate water. All of this combined helps offers very quick warm up that instills confidence for the rider shortly after the start of the journey.
