Motorcycle Tire Speed Rating

motorcycle tire speed rating

    motorcycle tire
  • Motorcycle tyres provide the only contact with the ground, via the contact patch under normal conditions, and so have a very large influence over motorcycle handling characteristics. Motorcycle tyres have a round cross section to facilitate the leaning necessary when a motorcycle turns.

    speed rating
  • Speed rating to indicate the range of speeds at which a tyre can carry a load under a range of conditions. Ratings are categorised from A-Z.

  • Tire code or Tyre code - Automobile tires are described by an alphanumeric code, which is generally molded into the sidewall of the tire. This code specifies the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load-bearing ability, and maximum speed.

  • a letter that identifies a tire's high speed durability. A tire's capabilities are tested at preset speeds and the results of these tests determine the tire's speed rating. Speed Ratings include: Q, S, T, U, H, V, Z, W, Y

MCN overall verdict rating is 5*

This is like no in-line-four cylinder sportsbike ever produced. It’s simply sensational. The Yamaha R1’s ultra-short-stroke engine has a cross-plane crankshaft, with its crank pins set at 90° and has irregular firing intervals, which is technology lifted directly from Valentino Rossi’s factory YZR-M1. At a standstill the motor spins up like a two-stroke and on the move the R1’s ability to accelerate, no matter where you are in the revs is astonishing. Thanks to the clever engine design it grunts off corners like a V-twin, while giving superb feel through the rear tyre, and howls along straights like the mad, bad in-line-four it really is. Best of all it sounds just like Rossi’s M1 at full chat.

The Smudge Tool in this image was applied to the motorcycle racer to get a feel that he is traveling at a much faster rate of speed. I used the Tool to Smudge the tires, the driver, and the overall bike itself.
