Michelin Launches New Scooter Tyre
Published On 07-Feb-2022
New scooter tyre Michelin City Extra will replace he Michelin City Pro and Michelin City Grip Pro tire ranges.
Michelin has launched its new Michelin City Extra; a new tire for the global commuter market, with fitments available for scooters, step-throughs and small motorcycles.
Replacing both the Michelin City Pro and Michelin City Grip Pro tire ranges, the new Michelin City Extra offers 10 percent longer life and 24 percent better wet grip compared to the Michelin City Pro and is also available in a larger range of sizes for scooters, giving increased market coverage, said the tyremaker in a release.
Michelin says, these improvements in performance have been made possible by the new adaptive tread design developed for the Michelin City Extra. This evolution in tread pattern design resists wear and incorporates Michelin Water Sipes to cut through the film of water on the road surface to find high levels of grip in these difficult conditions.
In addition to the improved grip and longevity, the renowned puncture resistant construction of the Michelin City Pro has been optimized even further for the Michelin City Extra to provide better durability, and therefore peace of mind for riders during their everyday commutes, added the tyremaker.
The new Michelin City Extra will be available in markets from the beginning of 2022, in the following sizes subject to country/region specifics.
