Michelin Hits the Road With Harley-Davidson

(Akron/Tire Review) Michelin brand motorcycle tires will soon be available through Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealers in North America.

Later this year, the tiremaker will provide replacement market motorcycle tires to the Milwaukee-based cycle giant.

“Harley-Davidson is an exceptional company, and we are very proud to join them as a supplier,” said Vickie Johnson, vice president of two-wheel tires for Michelin North America. “Michelin has been manufacturing tires for motorcycles as long as motorcycles have existed. In fact, Michelin invented the radial motorcycle tire in 1987. We believe that our motorcycle products will be a valuable addition to Harley Davidson’s existing product line.”
