5 MICHELIN COMMANDER 2 Distributor: Northern Accessories Michelin have launched a new motorcycle tyre which delivers unrivalled tyre life. Independent tests carried out in the United States using a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic prove it; a rear Michelin Commander II is capable of covering up to 40,000 kms, while the longevity of the front tyre is even greater. The Michelin Commander II creates a new standard with regard to durability, without compromising wet weather grip, manoeuvrability or stability. This provides yet another illustration of Michelin’s research and development philosophy: no performance gain to be achieved to the detriment of another. In response to the major concern of custom motorcycle riders – tyre life, notably at the rear – the engineers at the Michelin Technology Centre in France, have developed a new rubber compound to extend the life of the tyre.
