MRF Masseter tyre review – Benefits
Made up of special soft rubber compound the MRF Masseter gives superior grip and improved braking performance.
Its unconventional lean positions help in better traction levels, which further aids in better cornering with confidence.
With soft compound, the contact patch of the tyres is wider leading to enhanced braking eventually reducing the chances of skidding.
MRF Masseter’s resourceful and practical design provides optimum balance to the rider on both the sides of the tyre while switching body postures at sharp turns.
My experience with the MRF Masseter has been for last 10k Kms and it has been really really good. The grip i have while cornering has given confidence to lean more into the corner. The tyre treads really good with heat issues while on long rides. I fill nitrogen air in the tyres which helps me keep it cool and air is intact for a long period. The bite given by the tyres while braking gave me confidence to release the throttle to its limit. I have used the tyres on flat tarmac, sand, wet surface and little off-roads as well. The response given by them are very good. During rainy season, the wet grip is very good and the tyre does not fish-tail. The LAPS technology helps in enjoying the twisties and turns on any road. I haven’t had a single puncture even after off-road rides.MRF Masseter gave me confidence to stretch my limits on every ride, be it endurance, speed, braking or cornering ability.Would recommend this tyre for all the people looking for great performance at pocket friendly cost.
