Michelin Introduces New Tires for Select 2018 Harley-Davidson® Softail® Motorcycles

25

CLERMONT-FERRAND, France, Sept. 11 2017 -- Michelin introduces Scorcher® tires to equip the 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy®, Low Rider® and Breakout® motorcycles which were revealed in mid-August.  

For select 2018 Softail motorcycles, two new Michelin-Harley-Davidson co-branded Scorcher tires are available as original equipment. The MICHELIN Scorcher® 31 features traditional cruiser styling cues while the MICHELIN Scorcher® 11 provides a sportier look. The compounds selected for the treads of the new MICHELIN Scorcher® 11 and the new MICHELIN Scorcher® 31 deliver superior grip in cold, wet and damp conditions, as well as longer service life. The Scorcher® “11” and Scorcher® “31” are factory-installed on many models, and can be installed as a replacement tire on other specified models.

Michelin worked with Harley-Davidson® for two years to develop these new tires. Using advanced modeling, engineers from both companies were able to work virtually across global research centers to co-design the tires and fine-tune them to exact specifications. The focused efforts, rigorous quality standards and collaboration resulted in tires that are perfectly matched to deliver the performance needs of the motorcycles.

The exclusive look and performance of these new Harley-Davidson® motorcycles has led to the availability of exclusive sizes. For example, in a landmark first in the cruiser motorcycle market, the new Fat Boy® combines a 160/60R18 front MICHELIN Scorcher® 11 with a 240/40R18 rear for a bold, distinctive stance, plus exceptional riding pleasure and a great feel.

Meanwhile, in addition to providing riders with a lightweight feel, the lighter weight and enhanced high-speed stability made possible by the use of Aramid fiber* – another feature of Michelin’s hypersport tires – helps to maintain the tires’ profile and ensure consistent performance at high speeds

Front (130/60B21) and rear (240/40R18) MICHELIN Scorcher® 11s are the original equipment on Breakout® models, while the Low Rider® models are originally equipped with MICHELIN Scorcher® 31s front (110/90B19) and rear (180/70B16).

These new MICHELIN Scorcher® tires will be available across Harley-Davidson’s extensive network, as well as from specialist dealers.

I have been browsing online greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
