Newly launched adventure tyre boasts road and off-road qualities.
Michelin has launched its all-new Anakee Adventure tyre, marking the latest development and addition to the existing Anakee range.
Given that adventure and dual-sport bike owners tend to use their motorcycle more frequently on sealed surfaces than off-road, Michelin has extended its range of adventure tyres with the addition of the Michelin Anakee Adventure. Designed for 80 percent road use and 20 percent track/trail, the Anakee Adventure stands out as the ideal solution for most dual-sport bikes thanks to features that address the full spectrum.
The tyre ticks all the performance-related boxes requested by rider who use their motorcycle principally on ordinary roads, with occasional forays off-road, including in challenging conditions. Michelin has pulled out all the stops to address the requirements of owners of models ranging from the Honda Africa Twin, BMW GS and Yamaha Super Tenere, to the Suzuki V Strom, KTM Adventure and Triumph Tiger.
To cover this broad variety of uses, the newcomer to Michelin’s catalogue combines new compounds, a new construction, new technologies and a new pattern to deliver superior wet and dry weather grip, handling performance, ride comfort and stability, especially at higher speeds.
It is the first Michelin Trail tyre to incorporate 2CT and 2CT+, technologies that were previously only a feature in Michelin’s radial road tyres.
