As the highest altitude motorcycle rally in Italy, Agnellotreffen is the perfect place to put the performance of our unique range of winter tyres to the test.
Our Italian colleagues recently attended the 2018 rally high in the Italian Alps, where they team up with top online bike website Motospia.it to give the Winter Grip Plus and Winter Grip 2 tyres a thorough workout.
For the test, the Motospia crew laid their hands on a Suzuki V-Strom 1000 and a Burgman 400 – giving them a chance to head out for a spin on both our motorcycle and scooter winter tyres.
Both tyres use a heavily siped tread pattern, which helps to clear additional water on wet roads while also providing multiple leading-edges which effectively ‘bite’ into the surface for additional levels of grip – much in the same way that winter car tyres work.
Although both bikes feature some kind of electronic assistance, riders reported that the Winter Grip Plus and Winter Grip 2 offered sufficient levels of grip that the V-Strom’s Traction Control light stayed off the whole time, whereas the ABS on the Burgman was rarely called into action.
Summing up, Motospia commented:
“In January on the roads of Piedmont we had fun, in total safety, despite the cold temperatures and snow-covered roads. Excellent feeling thanks to the Anlas motorcycle winter tyres.”
The complete Anlas winter range is also available in the UK.
