TVS Tyres has recently launched two new patterns of tubeless tyres catering to the scooter category. Jumbo-XT and Pancer-II tyres have been designed to offer improved traction over wet and mucky surfaces, while offering superior durability and resistance to damages.
Speaking on the launch, P. Vijayaraghavan, Director, TVS Srichakra Ltd, said, “We are proud to announce the launch of Jumbo-XT and Pancer-II scooter tyre patterns. We believe the scooter segment in India is one of the primary drivers of growth in the domestic two-wheeler market and has witnessed a strong demand in the urban, semi-urban and rural areas across the country. Jumbo-XT and PANCER-II are technologically superior products with highest quality standards and have been tested rigorously to suit the varying road conditions.”
TVS Jumbo-XT has been designed keeping an increased emphasis on performance over rough and unpaved roads. It comes equipped with a rugged, block-type tread pattern that would offer confident traction over mucky surfaces. Parallel groove design on the tread makes for improved grip and stability over wet surfaces by efficiently dispersing water from underneath the tyres.
TVS Pancer-II, on the other hand, features a directional block-type tread pattern. This tyre offers better high-speed stability while delivering confident grip over over dry and wet surfaces. It makes use of circumferential grooves and angular sipes to quickly disperse water and provide a stable ride even over wet surfaces.
Both these tubeless tyres would be available in 90/100- 10 53 J sizes and would be widely available across India.
Demand for 2-wheelers in the automotive category continues to show an upward trend, wherein the demand for scooters has seen a considerable spike as they are being pegged as the preferred choice for rural and semi-urban commuters. This has created a host of opportunities for auto ancillaries in India, especially tyre manufacturers.
