Korbach, February 2014. The ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo touring sport tire will be original equipment on the new BMW R 1200 RT. Heavyweight touring motorcycles like the BMW pose a particular set of challenges for tires, which is why Continental engineers in Korbach have included the ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo especially for this vehicle class in the product range. The tire's most outstanding characteristic is the innovative structure of the carcass. A reinforced design with a second carcass layer delivers enhanced stability and easy handling for heavyweight bikes. Wear resistance was also improved, and the tire mileage is now even better.

A spin on the new tires drives home to any biker the technical refinement of the ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo

Easy handling, safe driving control, and clear feedback are all the result of Continental's motorcycle tire development. The ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo drives this home to every biker on her or his own motorcycle from the very first meter on.

The ContiRoadAttack 2 GT is equipped with the motorcycle tire manufacturer's three core technologies.

MultiGrip ensures homogeneously graduated grip between the zenith and shoulder areas, strong grip when cornering, and simultaneous high mileage. The TractionSkin label refers to the tire's roughened surface for an exceptionally safe and short break-in period. What's more, the zero-degree steel-belt construction provides maximum stability at high speeds and a low kickback tendency.
