Pirelli has developed the new ANGEL CiTy above all for the requirements and habits of riders who mainly prefer sporting bikes up to 300cc and other commuting bikes to get around the city, as well as for recreational use.

Thanks to features such as high durability and resistance, safety in any conditions and sporty handling, Pirelli’s goal for the new ANGEL CiTy is to increase the company’s presence in the Asian and Australasian market in this segment. The tyre offers all of the best characteristics of two legendary tyres, the SPORT DEMON and the SPORT DRAGON in one single product, taking advantage of the latest developments and cutting-edge technology to meet the modern requirements of bikes and riders.

ANGEL CiTy encapsulates the Italian soul and sporting nature of Pirelli, a prestigious and historic tyre manufacturer that has always been dedicated to technological development and motorsports. Pirelli is the exclusive supplier of tyres for the FIA Formula One World Championship® and the Motul FIM Superbike World Championship, as well as its important commitments to the World Championships for Rally, Motocross and Endurance, and all the most important two- and four-wheel motorsport competitions. This role demonstrates the passion and dedication that Pirelli has always had for motorsports, which forms an important part of the DNA of this Italian company.


The Sport Touring Segment

The conventional Sport Touring tyre is the most widespread and common type of bike tyre in the world. The largest market for this segment is Asia, together with South America and Australia, but it has also shown steady growth in the West and Europe over the last few years.
Sturdiness, durability, grip on wet roads and consistent performance are the main aspects taken into consideration when selecting a tyre in this segment. This why the new ANGEL CiTy has been specially developed using the technology of the ANGEL GT as a starting point, the winner of multiple comparative tests, adjusting it for the conventional construction of bikes with engines up to 300cc.

The new Pirelli ANGEL CiTy was created with the intention of it becoming the benchmark tyre for this segment and the market leader for 300cc engine bikes.


Strengths of the ANGEL CiTy and advantages for riders
The new ANGEL CiTy is the first line of Pirelli tyres developed in the new Subang factory in Indonesia. All the developments and technical solutions adopted in terms of profiles, structure, compounds and tread design were created with three main objectives in mind:
• High durability and resistance
• Safety under all conditions (e.g. wet and bumpy roads)
• Characteristic Pirelli handling
The new ANGEL CiTy represents state-of-the-art Pirelli technology for sporting bikes up to 300cc, including smaller capacity sport touring and other commuting bikes.

Who ANGEL CiTy is intended for

ANGEL CiTy was designed for all those who use their bike the entire year, either to go to work and move easily through city traffic or for leisure and with a passenger. These are riders who need a tyre which can offer excellent mileage, top quality in terms of braking and versatility, as well as sturdiness, comfort and safety on wet roads.
