On the first page I posted a picture of my bike. I had my doubts in my tyre that there was no circumferential groove in the middle. What even increased my doubts was that even the tyre bought By OP had a groove and also the image in the Dsi website too.
So i emailed Dsi.
Here is the email I sent.
Recently I bought DSI tyre for my bike Suzuki Gs150.I purchased the tyre from a shop in Karachi,Pakistan.Size of tyre was 100/90-18.My query is that the tyre which I bought has no circumferential groove in the middle.I have checked the same tyre on DSI TYRE website and there appears to be a groove in the middle.
For reference I am posting a link of my tyre.
Kindly,let me know if the tyre I have purchased is original or not.

What Dsi replied
Dear Mr. --------
Thank you very much for the e-mail.* We also like to have customers of your nature who are very informative and updated.* The circumferential groove is removed in the new design and you are using a Tyre designed freshly in order to improve performance and mileage.* You are using an original Tyre and therefore, you have nothing to worry.
It is a shortcoming in our end to not to have updated the website.* We will update the image immediately as well.* Thanks a lot for the enquiry and enjoy the ride with DSI.
