Pirelli Launches Scorpion Trail III 

Pirelli Launches Scorpion Trail III 

The new motorcycle tyre is the sportiest Scorpion product ever on asphalt, and can also tackle light off-road conditions.

Pirelli has once again redefined the boundaries of motorcycle tyres with the launch of the Scorpion Trail III.

This latest addition to the Scorpion family marks a significant leap, boasting the title of the sportiest asphalt tyre in the adventure-touring segment.

Designed for the Daring

Crafted for the modern adventurer, the Scorpion Trail III is perfect for riders who revel in the versatility of their crossover motorcycles. 

Pirelli’s Scorpion range is synonymous with off-road excellence, a heritage that includes 40 years of dominance in championships like the Enduro World Championship and the Motocross World Championship. The Scorpion Trail III is no exception, offering a street enduro tyre that excels on asphalt but doesn’t shy away from dirt roads.

Acoustic comfort is also a big feature on these threads – minimising road noise without compromising on grip.

The Secret Recipe

The magic of the Scorpion Trail III lies in the harmony of its components.

An evolution from the Scorpion Trail II, the new tread design borrows from the Diablo sport range. Central band grooves, reminiscent of the Diablo’s Flash, enhance wet drainage and lateral stability on softer terrains. 100% silica-based compounds ensure top-notch performance in wet and dry conditions. The rear dual-compound radials feature a soft shoulder compound for cornering grip, while the central tread band offers durability and stability.

The front tyre, inspired by supersport technology, enhances ride and grip, while the rear tyres’ rigid structures allow for sporty handling and stability under various loads. Drawing from Pirelli’s Sport Touring expertise, the multi-radius profiles ensure high-speed stability, longevity, and a sporty feel with a progressive response.

Sizes for Every Rider

The Scorpion Trail III range will be available in various sizes, catering to diverse needs. The first half of 2024 will see most sizes hit the market, with specific front and rear sizes following in the latter half of the year.
