Pirelli becomes Official Tyre Supplier of Bears Australia

Pirelli Motorcycle Tyres have been appointed as the Official Tyre Supplier for the Bears Australia Motorcycle Racing club for 2012.

This agreement will see Pirelli racing tyres available to all Bears competitors at each National Challenge round, as well as club round events. Special pricing on these tyres will also be available to Bears Racing club members, including reduced pricing on the Diablo Superbike Pro club racing slick tyre.

“We are excited to be involved with Pirelli tyres as part of the Pirelli/Trooper Lu’s/Pro Cycles Bears National Challenge,” said Don Nicholas, national manager of Pirelli Moto, Link International. “The mix of European motorcycles such as Ducati and Aprilia that are raced in this national series is the perfect match for the Pirelli Diablo Superbike range.

“With such a close link to the tyres used in the World Superbike Championship now available to Australian racers, we look forward to Bears competitors enjoying exciting racing in the year ahead”.

“Bears Australia is both proud and excited to have Pirelli as the Official tyre supplier for 2012,” Bears Australia President Scott Brown said. “We see a lot of synergy between both Bears and Pirelli, and we are looking forward to partnering with them in 2012.

“The Euro side of our club is custom made for Pirelli’s and I know many of the boys can’t wait to try out the new Diablo Superbike range for themselves”

“Bears would like to welcome Pirelli and Trooper Lu’s Garage as new National naming rights sponsors and Procycles as a returning national sponsor for 2012. – This is shaping up to be one of the most exciting and best seasons racing yet” Scott concluded.

Pirelli Tyres for the Bears series can be purchased via authorized Pirelli Race Centre’s only, which are listed at
