CEAT pits its motorcycle tyres against competitors at Indian test track

3 July, 2022

A series of gruelling field tests commissioned by CEAT Kelani Holdings for some of its top-selling motorcycle tyres has concluded that they hold their own against those of the two biggest competing brands, one from Sri Lanka and the other from India.

The benchmarking exercise was conducted atIndia’s state-of-the-art National Automotive Test Tracks (NATRAX) of the National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRiP) in Indore, and at CEAT India’s corporate R&D facility in Halol, the Company said.

Matching tyres from a leading Sri Lankan motorcycle tyre brand and a top Indian brand were tested alongside five motorcycle tyres manufactured in Sri Lanka by CEAT, on multiple key value propositions (KVPs) – handling stability, ride comfort, straight line stability, character curves, limit handling, brake stability, dry and wet braking index and distance.

The final test scores indicated that the CEAT 140/70-17 Zoom XL, 90/100-10 Gripp X3, and 100/90-17 Gripptyres were superior in some aspects, and on par in terms of other features with the products of the competitor brands, the Company disclosed. The tested tyres are those that fit the Yamaha FZ, Honda Activa, Bajaj Pulsar, Bajaj Platina and Hero HF Deluxe motorcycles.

CEAT Kelani Managing Director Ravi Dadlani said, “Lives literally ride on motorcycle tyre, and we periodically invest in rigorous testing of key aspects of our products on purpose-built tracks.”
