Michelin Motorcycle Tires this week launched its Michelin Commander II tire, which is aimed at the cruiser market. There are 15 sizes to choose from, each offering longer tire longevity &mdash ; which is a common complaint among cruiser owners. This is made possible by the development of a new rubber compound, according to Michelin tire engineers. Testing shows that the rear tire can last almost twice as long as tires from competitors.
The rubber compound and the tire treading offer heightened grip in wet conditions. The tire itself contains Amplified Density Technology, which increases maneuverability and feedback, while a square-bead sidewall adds even more stability.
“The Commander II tire raises the bar for what consumers can expect from a Cruiser tire, with unmatched longevity as well as style and stability,” said Gary Midkiff, vice president of sales and marketing for Michelin North America’s two wheel division.
