the true story of the new tires!
In June 2011, I found myself in need of replacing the tires on my 750 sport, after many phone calls to Ducati, Michelin etc., I could not find a legal solution in Italy, unable to mount sizes other than those provided.
Talking about this with a colleague and friend Mario Napo, these are found to work with Mark Goldentyre, and with it, they decided to give me answer to a dream, to remake the tires 130 and 160/60 zr 16. in November 2011, they failed to have them for the EICMA, but January 14, 2012, the "first" pair of tires was mounted on my 750 sport (on facebook there is a photographic report), then from May 2012 the tires were distributed in Italy, atttraverso site: http://www.goldentyreracing.com/index_ita_norm.htm
Section scooter mod. GT 70 and GT 71.
Thanks to Marco Goldentyre, Mario Napo, the old Ducati fans, will return to use them with the correct coverage.

16" tyres?

Don't use 'em. Don't need 'em. Don't want 'em.

But on behalf of everyone who does - and those of us who (maybe) one day will . . .

THANK YOU !!
