Michelin India has launched two new motorcycle tyres (SIRAC Street and Pilot Sporty) in the Indian market, aimed at increasing its share in the two wheeler tyre market.
While Michelin SIRAC had been earlier available in 120/80×17”, 120/80×18” and 100/90×18” (front tubeless tyre), the new SIRAC Street range of tyres will be available in 2.75×18”, 3.00×18” and 100/90×18” sizes and are tubed tyres.
Apart from being smaller in dimension, SIRAC Street range is also touted to be lighter than earlier SIRAC range, which in turn should lead to be lesser or no impact on a motorcycle’s performance, after being swapped with the OEM tyres.
Price of SIRAC Street range would start from Rs. 1250 and would go on till Rs. 1805, depending on the tyre size. SIRAC Street range is dual purpose tyre i.e. it should offer good performance, both on and off road and should be a good option for motorcycle tourers in India.
Pilot Sporty on the other hand is a city tyre, which aims to offer good grip and looks on the tarmac and would be available in 100/90×18” size and would be priced at Rs. 1940.
While SIRAC Street would soon be available at your nearest Michelin tyre dealer, Pilot Sporty would be available a little later on.
