Thanks to MICHELIN OVERLAP TECHNOLOGY (MOT), it is unlikely that these tires will get a puncture. Across 48 motorcycles that had covered a total of 400,000 kms, only 4 punctures* were reported.
*According to the results of product placement by Michelin Siam Co., Ltd. for 48 motorcycle taxis in Bangkok, Thailand, from November 2013 to March 2014. Results may vary depending on the motorcycle and riding conditions
Last 10% longer than main competitors**
Even more improvement over the MICHELIN M35 tire, a new rubber compound means that the MICHELIN City Pro's useful life is now 10% longer than its main competitor**. Their average lifespan is around 30,000 kms at the front and 20,000 kms at the back.
**A test carried out by Dekra in June, 2013 comparing MICHELIN City Pro tyres to IRC Maxing NR58s, Dunlop D104s and MICHELIN M35s. Back tyres 70/90-17 (MICHELIN City Pro / Dunlop D104) and 2.50-17 (IRC Maxing NR58 / MICHELIN M35).
Grip on Damp Surfaces
Because of their central groove, wheat-ear pattern and variable tread depth depending on the angle of the motorcycle (30% in the center and up to 35% on the shoulders), MICHELIN City Pro tires now displace water even more effectively.
