Michelin launch limited edition MotoGP™ tyre

Just 5,000 pairs of limited edition MotoGP™ tyres will be produced to celebrate Michelin’s return to the World Championship.

To mark their return to motorcycle racing’s premier series, Michelin has chosen to take the wraps off their new Michelin Pilot Power 3 MotoGP™ Ltd Edition tyre which will go on sale in Europe on 1 June.

In a world first, this exclusive tyre will feature specific sidewall branding that combines the Michelin Pilot Power 3 and official MotoGP™ logos. Production is being limited to 5,000 pairs.

The new Michelin Pilot Power 3 MotoGP™ Ltd Edition is available in 120/70 ZR 17 (58W) front and 180/55 ZR 17 (73W) rear sizes to fit a large selection of sports bikes.

Michelin’s MotoGP™ involvement provides it with an extreme laboratory to develop technological solutions that will later feed into the road tyres it makes for all motorcyclists.

Gary Guthrie, Michelin President 2-wheel tyre division: “With this limited edition, Michelin is offering riders the opportunity to get even closer to the MotoGP experience”

Pau Serracanta, Dorna Managing Director / Commercial Area: “It’s great to see our partnership with Michelin extend beyond the track and allow riders to get a taste of MotoGP technology. Not doubt fans will be eager to get their hands on them.”
