GoldenTyre GT 201 Dual-Sport Tires

(June 3, 2013) Golden Tyre (actually “GoldenTyre”, all one word), an Italian motorcycle tire manufacturer, is selling DOT (also E-Mark approved) motorcycle tires in the U.S.A. after having established a U.S. office over one year ago.

Tire selections include motocross tires, flat track tires, enduro tires, dual sport tires and more.

The GoldenTyre GT 201 dual-sport tire shown above appears to be something like an 80/20 that is slightly “knobbier” than something like a Pirelli MT90 A/T and in the neighborhood of the Bridgestone Trail Wing TW41 front and TW42 rear OE tire on the Suzuki DR650.

From GoldenTyre regarding the GT 201: “On-off road tire for high performance enduro bikes. The particular layout of knobbing is specifically designed to offer the best grip on the road and off-road situations. It provides good traction on every terrain and high resistance to aquaplaning when riding on wet conditions. The reinforced carcass gives a better comfort, grip and stability at full load.”
