Michelin unveils new Power RS sport road tyre

Phillip Island debuts a new Michelin tyre aiming to become market leader

The Michelin Power RS sport road tyre will be unveiled at the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix; a new range that delivers exceptional performance and will be available from 1 January 2017.

With dry-weather grip, agility, stability and peerless handling performance, the Power RS is aimed at standing out as a new benchmark of the sport motorcycle road tyre market. The tyre’s high level of performance in all these areas is due to the combination of Michelin’s longstanding expertise, its experience of top-flight racing and the diverse nature of its innovations.

The combination of new rubber compounds, some of which are derived from racing, and a new casing design, has resulted in incomparable grip on dry roads. The innovative rear tyre features a patented construction which benefits from Michelin ACT+ technology for impeccable straight-line and cornering stability.

This year’s Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix will see the BMW S 1000 RR Safety Bike equipped with the Michelin Power RS, before the tyre will be available in 13 different sizes (four front and nine rear) covering a broad spectrum of motorcycles, from 300cc bikes to large capacity Supersport machines.
