Yamaha states that it won't back any other tire except the brand and style that comes with it new. The fact is I ride 100% on the street. No need for a on/off road type of tire that comes stock. I replaced the originals with the SL26 smooth ride and good traction. The other plus is it has separate directions for front and rear tires. The front spray the water forward and to the side. The rear back and to the side. I'm still playing with proper inflation stock is 25psi.The max on the sl26 is 36psi.

This is the second front tire for our Vespa ET4. We stayed with this same Pirelli tire that came on the bike originally. The first one has worn very well and seems to be a perfect tire for this particular scooter.

Great tire for the Buell. Rear lasted just over 10k kms, not bad considering riding style on this torquey single. Much better than the stock Dunlops as many will attest.

When my new scooter needed new tires, I went with these for front and back and have never went any where else. This will be my fourth or fifth set of tires and they are very smooth both on regular street and highway. Turning also is smooth and good grip unless they are worn out then it does slip a bit. Just wish the thread life could last a little longer.

These tires handle much better than the stock Sawa (sp?) brand--which were dangerous, in my honest opinion! The Pirelli GTS tires have fine cornering and are stable at high speeds. The rear tire wears down fast though, for me, so that is one area that needs consideration before purchase.

After purchasing a used 2011 Vespa 300, I purchased the Pirelli GTS 23 front and rear tires to replace the original ones (same brand and size). The original Pirelli tires had 11,000 miles on them and were still in pretty good shape, but I did not want to push my luck.
