    Overall Tire/Tyre Review

    The Maxxis Presa Sport MA-PS was part of a Visordown test with a number of other sportbike tires. The Maxxis Presa Sport MA-PA was rated last in wet and dry lap times/performance. For street riding there aren’t that many reviews, but it was praised as being stable at high speeds, heats up quickly and great for the price.

    2 reviews. 5 of 5 stars. On a gixxer 750 – tire never spun in tight corners under hard acceleration, at high speed stable as a rock, got 4,000 miles. Another says great tire for the price, heats up quickly.

    Visordown tested the Maxxis Presa Sport MA-PS against a number of other tires. The Maxxis Presa Sport was at the bottom of the tires tested, ranked 8th of 8 tires. Damp: 1:23:73, Dry: 1:14:14. Damp – Not as much confidence mid corner, took a while to warm up and scrub in, had to be patient and wait for the bike to be upright before opening the throttle. Dry – Quite good under hard braking, pushes out/slides predictably, pretty good feel, stable.
