Korbach, Germany, March 2014. Coinciding with the launch of BMW’s new water-cooled R1200RT—one of the most capable sport-touring machines on the market—Continental is proud to introduce the new ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo tires, which will be original equipment on the R1200RT.

Based on Continental’s well balanced and proven ContiRoadAttack 2 tires, the Gran Turismo tires were developed specifically for today’s high-horsepower heavyweight touring machines. To optimize the tires for the demands of R1200RT, Continental engineers added additional carcass plies for enhanced stability and handling, and also developed a new tread compound for greater durability. The new tires will feature Continental’s trademark checkered flag pattern along with a “GT” designation embossed on the sidewall.

The Gran Turismos offer outstanding grip, light handling, and excellent stability through Continental’s three core technologies: MultiGrip, TractionSkin, and ZeroDegree belting.
