In the high stakes motorcycle tyre world, one name has commanded riders’ fierce loyalty for more than 120 years – Metzeler. Until now, however, the German brand has not enjoyed the widespread availability that local motorcyclists would prefer, but that’s all changing with the awarding of the sole distribution rights for Metzeler to TiMoto.
With immediate effect, TiMoto, a division of TiAuto Investments, is now the sole wholesaler and distributor of the complete range of Metzeler motorcycle tyres in South Africa and neighboring territories
That’s a big deal for motorcyclists, because TiAuto Investments has an extensive and established distribution network and decades of proven performance as the sole Southern African distributor of a number of big-name wheel, tyre and automotive battery brands. This will translate into greater, more widespread and more immediate availability of the full variety of Metzeler tyres, throughout the Southern African motorcycle dealer network.
Metzeler was one of the first companies to make specialised motorcycle tyres, back in 1892 when motorcycles were first being built. In fact, the company is credited with playing a major role in tyre development for not only the motorcycle, but also the bicycle and automotive industries. Since 1978/79, however, Metzeler has focused exclusively on motorcycle tyres – choosing to do one thing, and to do it well.
Metzeler remains at the very cutting-edge of motorcycle tyre technology – leading the world with its superior quality, high performance tyres. The complete Metzeler product range includes road, race and off-road tyres.
