Pirelli SL 26 Make Riding More Fun
May 09, 2013(Glenside, PA)
I bought these tires as replacement for the original tires on my Vespa GT200. Its handling so much better now I'm taking curves at a higher speed and more lean with confidence. My original front tire lasted 6500 miles. This is my third back tire.
SOOO MUCH BETTER THAN Bridgestones

I installed Stones on my Helix last summer and 4500 miles the front was to the wear bar and the back not far behind. They never felt planted, but they weren't bad.
I read a bunch of reviews on these Pirellis and decided to try them. WOW!!! The ride, handling, and everything else is so much better than the Stones, and they're cheaper, to boot!!! SL26's will be my next pair of tires for the Helix!!!
Very good handling tire

I purchased one of these tires for my 2008 Lance Vintage. I have noticed an increase in grip going around turns. Grip is really good and I hardly have to use my brakes going through a turn. It's a very quiet tire and the ride is softer being a softer tire with a lot more tread blocks. Braking has improved a bit as well. Haven't experienced any wet roads with this tire yet but, I think it'll do great. Will be purchasing a rear tire soon.

I had this tire installed today. Does very well on bumpy roads, feels like a soft tire. Stability is very good. Takes corners and sharp turns extremely well. Not sure how wet traction is yet but we'll see.

I put Pirelli tires on my other scooter and was very impressed with the handling, so I bought these for my big scooter.
Just got these for a vespa gts

The stability is very good but you can still feel the grooves on cement freeway sections. I can't speak about tread life because this is the first time I've used this tire. Went for a trip in the mountains and the tire was extremely grippy and offered great cornering stability.

Like the other reviewers, the original SL 26 rear tire on my Piaggio Fly 150 lasted 5,000 miles+. Front tire still has plenty of tread and should go at least 50% further. Get a little slide cornering on asphalt if the road is dirty/dusty. Overall satisfied. Seems in line with tread wear on most scooter tires.
Good tire but...

I bought these for my scooter and after having them installed the front tire had a high spot on the bead. Installer said very rare to see on a Pirelli. MSS did authorize a refund and I bought another one and it was fine. Must have had the 1 of 1K, that is my luck. The tires have excellent traction and a great ride. Can't really rate the tread life yet since I only have 300 miles on them.
Good tire, bad tread life

Tire was put on front and back of my 70cc Typhoon, and it performed a lot better than the reggie's...Don't know why they put on/off road tires on a scoot?
Rear tire lasted 4000 miles....front is still going strong at 5000....
I wish there were more choices, but I think this is the best one out there, soft tires, they will wear fast....but good cornering, and good rain riding.
ITS A 10!
