      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.

    These tires were a gift, I will post a review at a later date. Pirelli makes great car tires so I'm guessing these will also be a good value.

    Great Replacement for the Scorcher 31
    The OE Scorcher's wore flat in the center by the end of their life and handling was sup-par. The Pirelli's had good reviews and seem to be a great replacement tire for the Scorcher thus far.

    Last one to try
    I have tried several different rear tires on my Thunderbird and none have made it more than 4300mi. Maybe a 200mm tire wears bad. The Pirelli is on course for the same wear. It handles well and has shown no bad manners. The Pirelli does not warm up as quickly as the Avon and I don't have the same confidence as I did the Avon. Overall an o.k. tire but will probably not get another.

    Over 45 years of riding, Motocross, Superbike and Thousands of Poker Runs, Rallies, Rolling Thunder. I love the Night Dragon tires. Great grip on all weather surfaces, except black ice and snow, of course. And I get a set for what a HD Stealership charges for 1 of their tires.

    Buy them! No doubt.
    Bought this Pirelli Night Dragon to replace my exact existing one. It lasted me 8,000 very confident miles, the handling was superb compared to my old Dunlops and Mettzlers. Sometimes those country corners and windy roads creep up on you, and these tires made them safely rideable.

    Awesome tire!
    I replaced the OEM Dunlop tires on my 2006 Springer with Pirelli Night Dragon tires. The ride was noticeably better from the moment I left the dealership that installed the tires in that the tires not only provided more grip than the Dunlops, but the ride was smoother and there was less vibration through the saddle and handlebars. The rear tire is the Night Dragon GT. I would recommend this tire to anyone.

    Can I use a tube with this tire?
    A shopper on May 19, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Don't know for certain but, believe even though it is made for tubeless installation a tube should be able to be used with it. But why would you? If it is because you think you are getting better flat protection, there are better products for that. If however, it is because you are running tubbed type rims then you should still be able to use a tube with the tire. All speculation of course, check with Pirelli before ordering or attemping to install on a tubbed type rim.
    has anyone run this on a k 1200 lt ?
    A shopper on Aug 5, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Haven't run them on a K1200 however, they are performing great on my Dyna Low Rider. They beat the stock Michelin Scorchers hands down.
