Responding to the increasing demand for superbike tyres in India, Michelin has launched the Pilot Power 3 and Pilot Road 4 tyres in India.
Considering that several manufacturers like Kawasaki, Ducati, Aprilia, Benelli and Honda are offering their superbikes in India, both of these tyres are designed to deliver high-performance for motorcycles with engine capacity of over 600cc. Users of high-performance motorcycles can pick from one of these two tyres depending upon their usage.
Pradeep G Thampy, Michelin Asia, Africa and Middle East Commercial Director (Two Wheels), said, “Michelin is delighted to bring Pilot Road 4 and Pilot Power 3 to the discerning Indian consumer. Industry analysts predict the Indian superbike market of 500cc and above, which has been growing at 40-50 per cent year on year, to more than double in the next five years. This makes it an exciting time for the performance motorcycle market in India. Today, our motorcycle tyre portfolio covers the widest possible range of motorcycles in India, high -performance or the daily commuter segment. We are committed to India and will continue to excite the Indian consumer with our advanced portfolio of products.”
These two products are the result of Michelin’s Total Performance Strategy and are designed to deliver maximum safety in all conditions along with durability.
Pilot Road 4: The Pilot Road 4 tyre delivers enhanced safety in all situations and an extended tyre life. This tyre features XST+ technology, specially designed for outstanding wet weather braking and helps the motorcycle stop faster on wet pavements and slippery surfaces. The Pilot Road 4 also features Michelin’s 2CT technology with 100 per cent silica compounds for optimum balance between grip and longevity.
Pilot Power 3: The Pilot Power 3 tyre will cater to sport motorcycles. It is developed to primarily be used on the road. However, this tyre can also deliver an exciting ride on the race track. Developed with a combination of 2CT and 2CT+ technology, it offers more stability when cornering, especially under strong acceleration. The tyre offers enhanced safety and performance with its unique tread design that gives the Pilot Power 3 best-in-class wet braking while delivering stability on steep angles without compromising the pace.
The Michelin Pilot Road 4 and Pilot Power 3 tyres are available nationally at the Michelin premium dealerships – the Michelin Priority Partners, the TYREPLUS network and Michelin retailers.
