Skinny tyres and lack of abs

Ather’s skinny tyres ( of course, for better Range) with lack of abs can be worrisome on wet roads! I narrowly escaped from falling twice, due to skidding on wet road! Why no abs? Can we upsize tyres? I don’t mind low range

I also maintain that ather is not made for wet road conditions. I myself have almost fell multiple times, combined with “very good drivers” and “beautiful” indian roads, its a recipe for disaster.

The tyres are actually the same size as an activa if you loose grip at a place that means 90% of scooter on indian roads would (thanks to activa’s population) at that situation.

Upsizing can easily be done. I believe it barely affects the range with good tyre pressure and increases the grip considerably. If you upsize do it on both the wheels and let us know how your experience was.

Since I have not changed my tyres yet I don’t know which is better.
