The new NIGHT DRAGON GT extends the legacy of the NIGHT DRAGON, a premium tire line Pirelli introduced in 2008 for cruiser, touring, and custom motorcycle users looking for quality mileage, style and performance – and at a very competitive price. The new NIGHT DRAGON GT extends this enjoyment, and offers up to 20% more mileage. To reach this target, Pirelli engineers revamped the tire structures and compound, while preserving the same profiles and tread pattern to maintain handling and water evacuation.
The new compound of NIGHT DRAGON GT features a ‘Full Carbon Black’ formulation that combines different types of thermo reactive polymers to combine high mileage and grip. From a chemical point of view, this is a challenging task given the different characteristics of these polymers, which is akin to combining oil with water! Thanks to Pirelli’s unique patented mixing process, combining special resins and plastifying agents, our engineers achieved a compound breakthrough. The result is a compound with a high homogeneity level that warms up quickly thanks to the Carbon Black, as well as delivering grip, wet performance, and high mileage.
The NIGHT DRAGON GT has the same profile as the original Night Dragon. It features a wide single radius contour that ensures a progressive behavior when entering the bend and to support the bike at every lean angle. It also shapes the contact area correctly from straight to full lean, for a crown area to ensure maximum traction.
Tread Pattern design
The NIGHT DRAGON GT maintains the original Night Dragon tread pattern design to guarantee high performance and excellent water drainage and mileage needs of these riders.
The NIGHT DRAGON tread design’s strength is its optimization of the contact patch area, offering ideal contact between the bike and road in every possible riding condition to deliver the power to the ground.
Where performance meets the road: A specific tire for high-performance Harley-Davidson® motorcycles.
Better adherence, road holding and look than standard tires for custom / cruiser motorcycles.
Designed for custom motorcyclists that need tires with high performance on the straight and inclining.
Excellent grip and a higher mileage.
Great fun to ride with a good balance between reliability and life of the tire.
The NIGHT DRAGON GT tire features a unique design to provide unbeatable grip and stability at every lean angle in the dry. The specially placed grooves between the crown and tire’s edge efficiently evacuate water. All of this combined helps offers very quick warm up that instills confidence for the rider shortly after the start of the journey.
