The SCORPION MX lineup ranges from 10-inch to 21-inch sizing and offers race-winning performance for 50cc – 450cc riders. Pirelli’s motocross range consists of three primary tread patterns – the SCORPION MX Soft, SCORPION MX32 Mid Soft, and SCORPION MX32 Mid Hard. Pirelli racers will use the SCORPION MX32 Mid Soft front and rear tires as a starting point when the gates drop in Tennessee. The SCORPION MX Soft rear will be an option for riders who are looking to get that extra traction during an early morning moto or if rain is in the forecast due to the softer and deeper soil.
