Michelin Develops Original Equipment Tires for Harley-Davidson
- Michelin and Harley-Davidson have joined forces to develop the all-new MICHELIN ScorcherTM "31" tire, which carries both companies' trademarks on its sidewalls and the signature Harley-Davidson logo carved into the shoulder. Four 2010 Harley-Davidson Dyna models will come equipped exclusively with the all-new tire.
The MICHELIN ScorcherTM "31" tire delivers superior performance in three key areas, providing sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling. This is achieved through the use of a deep-cut tread design, the latest Michelin synthetic polymers, premium-quality rubber compounds, Michelin's exclusive manufacturing process, aramid belts under the rear tread, and polyester carcass plies.
As well as being offered as original equipment on 2010 Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide, Super Glide Custom, Street Bob and Low Rider models, the Scorcher "31" tire can also be fitted on a variety of 2006-2009 Dyna models.
