ERJ staff report (DS)
Paris -- Michelin has held a global launch of its latest motorbike tyre, claimed to be the lightest sports motorcycle tyre in its category.
Available from January 2010, the Michelin Power Pure weighs two pounds less than competing tyres in the same category and is the lightest dual-compound tyre ever approved for road use. The front and rear tyres are available in two and four sizes respectively, to fit a broad range of sports bikes.
Michelin said, "The soft layer of rubber on the tyre's shoulders has been widened to provide excellent traction when the bike begins to lean. Long tread life is the hallmark of all Michelin tyres and the Power Pure owes its longevity to the depth of its tread, which is the same as that of previous-generation tyres."
