Metro Tyres targets a higher market share as it enters Radial Motorcycle Tyre segment.

Metro Tyres Limited, flagship company of US$ 140 million Metro Group, is set to embark on an expansion strategy. Noted for offering best in class two wheeler tyres, the company has announced its foray into the two wheeler radial tyre segment. Metro Tyres along with Continental of Germany will introduce high quality radial tyres and is also aiming for a market share of 10% over the next couple of years.

The new range of Metro Radial Motorcycle tyres were unveiled by Mr. Rummy Chhabra, Managing Director, Metro Tyres which have been designed at the company’s R&D facility in Punjab. An investment of INR 300 crores has also been announced for upgrading of facilities, expansion of capacities. The new range of tyres will cater to demands of bikes from the 150cc segment to 200-250cc segments and also high end sports bikes.

Metro Radial Motorcycle tyres have been designed with special emphasis on grip and safety besides comfort, high speed performance and stability. The pliers run radially from bead to bead and do not cross over each other. This feature allows for better flex on sidewalls allowing them to run at lower temperatures while higher speeds are also possible. Stiffer tread lowers rolling resistance which also contributes to enhanced fuel efficiency while flatter tread radius leads to larger contact patch and higher speed stability.

This initiative is a part of the PM Narendra Modi’s Make in India policy and are on sale at all company dealerships across India.
