Michelin Road 5 makes India entry

Michelin has introduced its Road 5 Sport Radial tyres in India. The Road 5 is available in 3 sizes – Front: 120 / 70/ ZR17; Rear: 190/50/ZR17 and 180 /55 /ZR 17. This new tyre is built using the same DNA of the Michelin Pilot Road 4, of which, 1.5 million units were sold since its launch four years ago.

“In an in-house evaluation comparing the new tyre with its chief competitors, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 came first with regard to grip on wet roads. It continues to deliver high performance in wet conditions throughout its life, since the MICHELIN ROAD 5 stops as short under braking with more than 3,000 miles on the clock than new MICHELIN Pilot ROAD 4s. In addition to these improvements, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 combines optimal grip on dry roads, superior
stability compared with its main rivals and outstanding road manners, a key consideration for owners of
Sport Touring motorcycles. Michelin takes the stopping power of its Sport Touring tyres on wet roads a step further by ensuring that their braking ability endures with time. Michelin has taken the MICHELIN XST X sipe technology which
features a combination of sipes and reservoirs designed to slice through surface water and improve the tyre’s water-
clearance capacity,” said Michelin.

Its dry-weather grip performance is essentially due to the latest-generation rubber compounds it uses, MICHELIN
ACT+, a revolutionary casing construction that enables the MICHELIN ROAD 5 to deliver superior straight-line and
cornering stability compared with its main rivals, as well as outstanding handling, says a statement.
