Motul Pirelli back Sherco enduro for busy 2016 racing schedule


Sherco Australia is pleased to announce naming rights sponsors Motul Pirelli will continue into 2016 with the Sherco Factory and Sherco Academy Teams. The four-rider line-up across two teams will use Motul lubricants and Pirelli tyres for all of their off-road racing duties.

“We’re thrilled to have such amazing brands behind us again for 2016,” said Sherco Australia’s Stephen Tuff. “Motul and Pirelli are as big as it gets in motorsport and their products speak for themselves. Our riders love racing on Pirelli Scorpion tyres and our mechanic has nothing but confidence in running Motul 7100 10W60 in our race bike engines.”

Motul’s range of lubricants ensures every model and engine configuration is covered with superior levels of protection. Likewise, the Pirelli Scorpion tyre selection offers excellent choices for racing on rocky hard pack to sand and mud.

“We are very pleased to continue our partnership with Sherco and Mojo Motorcycles,” said Pirelli Australia’s Don Nicholas. “It’s a dynamic and focused team at Mojo Motorcycles and Sherco and our philosophy of ‘we race what we sell, we sell what we race’ is a great fit with Pirelli Scorpion MX and Scorpion XC used by the race team.

“Enduro is an important market for us and a high-performance brand such as Sherco is the perfect showcase for us. It demonstrates that the same high-performance Scorpion MX 32 tyres that the Motul Pirelli Sherco team races on at Pro-level in the AORC can also be purchased directly from local motorcycle stores right around Australia, and ridden on the weekend on anyone’s bike.

“We wish the team a successful 2016 season.”

The Motul Pirelli Sherco Factory Team and Motul Pirelli Sherco Academy Team begin their 2016 racing campaign with rounds one and two of the Australian Off-Road Championship at Kilkivan this weekend where the riders will all run Pirelli Scorpion XC Mid-Soft and MX32 tyres.
