SIP’s range of well-proven 3.50-10″ Performer/Performance scooter tyres has just increased. They’ve added 120/70-12 and 130/70-12 sizes to suit the ever-popular Vespa GTS. The new sizes will also suit various other models and are rated to a very impressive 180kph (111.8 mph). 


SIP tested the tyres in 2019 during their 1800 km tour to France, where they provided good grip in both wet and dry conditions. They’re also said to last “Considerably longer than any so-called sports tyres.” Sebastian from SIP also claims that the tyres help to cure the GTS steering wobble: “The GTS models are plagued with directional stability issues. Once the SIP Performance tyres were mounted front and rear I didn’t experience anything of the kind! What really won me over though was their overall riding performance, especially in the wet!” SIP recommends also changing the valves when fitting new tyres to tubeless wheels.
