STOW, Ohio — From Avon comes the Storm 3D X-M tire, which will be available mid-month. The tires are specifically designed for sport tourers and sportbikes.

“The Storm 3D X-M is the perfect choice for riders who want extended mileage, excellent grip and great wet weather capabilities,” said Sukoshi Fahey, sales and marketing manager of Avon Tyres.

Features include interlocking 3D points in the tire’s sipes, which helps shorten warm-up time, boosts grip and improves overall stability while limiting tire flex, the company says. The tire is made of single- and multi-compound super rich silica (SRS), which also helps with road grip, no matter in wet or dry conditions.

The Store 3D X-M also boasts a 15 to 20-percent increase in tread life, when compared to Avon’s Storm 2 Ultra tire.

Sizes include:

  • 120/70ZR17 (front)
  • 180/55ZR17 (rear)
  • 190/50ZR17 (rear)

The company also states that the tire is ideal for use with sport-tourers like the Yamaha FJR1300, BMW R1200 RT, Honda VT700V, Kawasaki Concours 14, and sportbikes like the Kawasaki ZX14R and Yamaha YZF R1 (up to 2008). www.avonmoto.com
