Michelin Sets New Standard with Next Generation Motorcycle Road Tire

26

GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 22, 2016 - Michelin North America is introducing the newest tire in its line-up of high performance motorcycle tires.  The MICHELIN® Power RS, first introduced at the MICHELIN® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, combines revolutionary levels of dry-weather grip, agility, stability and superior handling performance. MICHELIN Power RS stands out as the sport motorcycle road tire market’s new benchmark* and accordingly targets the most discerning riders.

The tire’s high level of performance comes from a combination of Michelin’s longstanding expertise, its experience of top-flight racing and its demonstrated history of innovation.

 

The combination of new rubber compounds, some of which are derived from racing, and a new casing design, has resulted in incomparable grip on dry roads and a unique experience for the rider.

The innovative rear tire features a patented construction which benefits from all new MICHELIN Adaptive Casing Technology (ACT+) for impeccable straight-line and cornering stability.

 

This new range delivers exceptional performance and will be available in January 2017.

The tire will be available in 11 different sizes and will cover a broad spectrum of motorcycles, from 250cc bikes to large displacement sport bikes.
