19.02.2019 from Tomasz Good tire, much better than used maxxis. Its a scooter tire so not much expectation there
12.05.2018 from Gogo Shecky In fact it is a good tyres, but with a short lifetime. Driving experience with Yamaha X-Max 400 ABS. Front 120 / 70-15, Rear 150 / 70-13.
08.11.2014 from Tim Robertson City Grip Winter - Expensive, Dangerous and Lethal.
ABS cuts in on a warm dry road on Moderate Breaking. Cornering is poor with a drop in sensation while going straight on.
There is no cornering stability, even gentle corners you fight the steering which will go light and the tyre slips.
On a Cold Wet road, ABS cuts in all the time, steering is non existent, and slips even at walking speed.
Don't even consider relying on them in an emergency. They will let you down.
The tyres at 600km have badly worn with feathering on the tread.
After a 30mile/ 50 km Motorway speed journey on a dry road the tyres are cold.
Sold as a winter tyre they may meet mud and snow regulations. With improved grip in winter conditions and improvement on previous tyres.
In my experience (20 years riding and 8000km a year they are the most dangerous and lethal tyres I have had this misfortune of using .
DO NOT PURCHASE - they should be banned from sale before they kill.
15.02.2014 from Tony Great tyre. Just slippery in damp conditions, on a scooter anyway.
The vision of our founders, Edouard and André Michelin, has guided the
development of the MICHELIN brand for more than 125 years: making driving as simple, safe, and
comfortable as possible – first with innovative tires and wheels, followed by road maps, travel guides, and
contributions toward improving traffic infrastructure. Along with this comes a strong engagement with the
environment, as modern mobility must be sustainable and not detrimental to the environment.
Each year the Michelin Group produces more than 178 million tires in 68
production facilities in 17 countries, and it operates sales networks in more than 170 countries. The product
offerings are many: from bicycle, passenger car, truck, motorcycle, and tractor tires, to tires for 5-ton earth-
moving machines. Michelin employs 111,700 people worldwide and owns one of the oldest, most famous
trademarks in the world – the legendary Michelin Man.
Targeted development: MICHELIN Total Performance
In the development of new products, Michelin faithfully pursues the concept of
"MICHELIN Total Performance", backed by the rigorous standard of always bringing together a number of
performance characteristics into a tire, to achieve optimal results. We follow this philosophy not only in the
development of our standard products, but also in motorsports. Numerous technical innovations help to
relieve burdens on the environment, drivers, and businesses. Hidden out of sight in tire casings, tread
designs, and rubber compounds, throughout their lives MICHELIN tires show their full potential: they offer
excellent grip, long life, and reduced fuel consumption thanks to their low rolling resistance.
To better understand the conditions which tires are subjected to in everyday
use, in the summer of 2014 Michelin began a unique research project – the Road Usage Lab. Vehicles from
3,000 drivers in Europe were equipped with special measurement devices to record data about the tires'
use. These valuable findings are being employed in the development of future tire models, making them
better suited to the needs of real drivers.
