Aprilia SL 1000 Falco

Motorcycle Tyres for Aprilia SL 1000 Falco Motorcycle

Unlike its racier stable-mate the RSV Mille, the Falco is geared for street sports-biking; more comfortable and fun to ride on British roads, but still with enough power to be track capable.
 
The Falco has a lower seat position that makes it feel as if you are sitting in it rather than on it, matched with more comfortable foot peg locations. This more practical position provides a confident sensation when cornering - which is just as well since the Aprilia 1000 SL is quite a long bike and also a tad top-heavy at lower speeds. While you can imagine it feeling more at home on one of those long straight highways you see in the movies, almost all reviews of this bike are positive.
 
Reliability is highly praised too, although as with most Italian bikes, customer service from Aprilia is a little sparse. Fortunately, all Protyre garages can help you keep your Aprilia perfectly maintained and source any spare part you might ever need. Why not book a full service when you drop in for a new set of Aprilia 1000 SL Falco tyres?
 
When you do need new Aprilia 1000 SL Falco tyres, bear in mind that you have a powerful bike and you need tyres to match its capabilities. Even though you may never intend to open it up all the way, the Falco’s engine is the same as the one in the RSV supersports - a 998cc 60 degree V-Twin 4-stroke capable of doing 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and of reaching over 160mph. Even if a governor’s fitted, you should buy Z rated tyres.
 
The normal tyre specifications for the Falco are a 120/70 ZR 17 on the front, and a 180/55 ZR 17 behind. Heavier riders sometimes notice a slight “softness” in the rear even at correct tyre pressures. Choosing a tyre with good load carrying capacity might help, but there is also a shock absorber upgrade available
