Perelli Night Dragons

Has anyone had these on their scoot? Opinions?

I'm going to need a set next spring I know about the Avons and the Metzlers, I'm just a fan of Perelli tires and was curious of anyone has tried them.

Have not heard much about them but Perelli is the parent company to Metzler and the Metzlers are good tires.

pirelli makes a great tire. they are related to metzeler. i think pirelli actually owns metzeler. they bought metzeler. can't go wrong with either one. i just love my metzeler me880's. great tire.

I started out with nothin'... and i still got most of it left.

I'm looking to get new tires. Maybe I'll check these out. Otherwise, I'm going with Metzler's.

I was interested in those tire before I got my Metzler's 880's. I could not fine ones that fit the stock Ace rims.

They don't have the stock front Sabre size either. But from my reading I think the 130/70-18 should fit (especially since I don't run a front fender).

I put a set of Pirelli Night Dragons on mine last spring. I knew tires made a difference... but had no idea the extent of difference they make. I love them, they seem to stick to the road and I'm not gonna lie but have definitely increased my confidence with turns. I ride rain or shine and these are great in both... just feel like they stick like glue.

Been running Pirelli MT66's. Affordable, handle well, and wear really well. 1st. rear tire 15,000 mi. Front has 19,000 mi. still in good shape. Looking at a safe 24,000 out of it. We'll see.

I love my night dragons, I feel totally in control of the balance even at low speeds and leaning in for high speed curves is easy but still feels predictable
