The rubber used in the Competition and Hypersport tires have a breaking point when temperatures dip below 41°F.
When they are subject to low temperatures, tires may endure irreversible damage. This can result in the tire tread cracking, rendering the tire useless.
1 temperature at which the tire loses all elasticity and becomes breakable
Tires need some time before their performance can peak.This warm up time corresponds to the length of time necessary for a pneumatic tire to reach an internal temperature between 122°F to more than 212°F.
To reach this temperature, each time you ride your motorcycle, go the first few miles at a moderate speed to allow the tires to reach their ideal temperature. This will subsequently provide them with the best possible grip.
