The latest in a line of MICHELIN Road tire firsts

As the latest in a long line of class-leading sport touring tires, Michelin is pleased to announce the launch of its MICHELIN Road 6 tire range, a tire range designed to offer riders of roadsters, trail bikes, sportsbikes and GT motorcycles the optimised performance in terms of wet grip, longevity, comfort and handling.

Alongside the standard MICHELIN Road 6 tire range, which now incorporates sizes for big trail bikes, there is also the MICHELIN Road 6 GT tire designed for grand touring machines.

Using technologies developed by engineers in Michelin’s R&D centres, the new MICHELIN Road 6 tire offers a 15 percent improvement in wet grip* and a 10 percent increase in tire life** compared with its predecessor, the MICHELIN Road 5 tire.

These improvements in performance have been made possible by a new tread design, advances in raw materials and an optimized tire architecture.
