The Puncture Resistant Tyre
- Oustanding long tyre life
- Grip even in wet conditions
Lasts 10% longer than the best performing rival tyre:
The new, specifically developed rubber compound marks an improvement over its best performing rivals to provide 10% longer tyre life for the Michelin City Pro**.
Average recorded tyre life is more than 28,000km (front) and more than 19,000km (rear)*.
Resistant to puncturing:
Thanks to the combination of Michelin Overlap Technology, three reinforcing plies and a layer of rubber beneath the tread, the Michelin City Pro tyre is extremely robust in order to significantly reduce the risk of puncture. During an extreme test involving 48 motorbikes totalling 399,000 miles in the toughest road conditions, only four punctures were reported*. The improved sealing is thanks to the layer of rubber on the inside of the tyre which limits rubbing of the inner tube. This in turn minimises the risk of pressure loss.
Grip of wet roads:
Thanks to its central circumferential groove, tread pattern and variable sea-to-land ratio depending on the motorcycle's angle of lean (from 30% at the centre to 35% along the shoulders), the Michelin City Pro's tyre water clearance capacity has been maximised. The result is enhanced grip on dry, wet and slippery roads alike.
