In terms of on-the-road sportiness for scooters, the HEIDENAU K61 from the manufacturer based in Saxony, Germany, is hard to beat.
You might even conclude that roads have been built just for the HEIDENAUK61. This sporty touring tyre is a hit at SIP Scootershop.
- Precise handling
- Sporty road tread
- Good traction
The German manufacturer emphasizes that the HEIDENAU K61 has been developed especially for the road. It has the requisite characteristics to enable a sporty riding style. With its responsive handling, very direct feedback and pleasant rolling comfort, it impressively demonstrates its absolute suitability for everyday use. It is not without reason, therefore, that the HEIDENAU K61 has been crowned test winner in scooter magazines several times over. With its centre groove, it runs reliably straight, which means it qualifies as a touring tyre. If you add the sensational grip that the HEIDENAU K61 develops on warm asphalt, this tyre ticks almost every box.
Please note 1: “OMR” is a German acronym which stands for “without centre groove”. Tyres with this marking have a bigger contact area. This means that they are optimised for use on the rear wheel and can demonstrate their advantages on long rides/tours.
Please note 2: Unless stated otherwise, scooter tyres can be used as either front or rear tyres.
Conclusion: The HEIDENAU K61 is a tyre which combines all the sporty riding characteristics that scooter riders need for the road.

Feedback from the scene
»TEST WINNER! Feel like something very special from the first metre, no comparison with the others. And they keep the promise. First class tyres, our favourites!«
»TEST WINNER! They are still special tyres. Not as bustling as Michelin, even more stable and wear-resistant. Our favourite on the Vespa!«
»Back to the Roots! I rode it when I was 18 and was thrilled. Now we have to have it again. Top tyre even after all these years! Recommendation!«

»No other tyre anymore. This tyre has changed my riding style. Right from the start it gives a good feeling with lots of grip, even on wet roads.«

»Probably one of the best tyres for the Vespa. I've had good experiences so far, the first K61 lasted about 8000 km. In dry conditions all top, in rain I had the impression the grip is only mediocre.«
