Royal Enfield Himalayan - Ownership experience

IJS

The Ghost Who Walks
my rear tyre has worn out so thinking of getting new ones. Ralco speed blaster is the one i have zeroed on, the size being 120-80-R17. the oem tyre ceat gripp is 120-90-R17. so a slight fall in height is expected.
Do look for newly launched Apollo Tyres for the Himalayan. Would share the pics in few days as the set arrives at my friend's shop.
Ralcos are known to be hard and slippery even on dry road so i suggest look for more options. Timsun is another brand which is getting famous these days.

These Apollos are going to be much better on tarmac with their bigger blocks-with much better feel while braking and cornering-but off road performance will be just passable-the Ceat will be better in that aspect-Apollo has done well to price these competitively.Let's see how quickly and how well the market accepts them -Apollo itself is a notoriously non aggressive marketer in the two wheeled space

Yes true about there lame attitude towards sale. They are not targeting right people to promote the tyre. I would suggest your name if they plan to give sample set
