Fortunately, the rear tire continued to excel in the area of traction and feedback, giving us everything we needed to know about how the rear of the motorcycle was working. The front tire’s issues seemed to disappear in the wet conditions. Because we weren’t ever riding at full lean, the feedback issues had worked themselves out and ultimately proved that the Rosso III works well in wet conditions.

The age of the tire is also one of the factors to consider. The lifespan of your motorcycle tire should not be longer than five years.
