GREENVILLE, S.C. (Jan. 2, 2012) - Today, Michelin Motorcycle Tires launches the MICHELIN® Commander® II tire. Available immediately in 15 sizes in bias and radial construction, the Commander II tire offers a new standard in cruiser tire longevity and uncompromised handling and stability.
A recurring issue with tires for the Cruiser market is tire life, most notably with the rear tire. Michelin chemists and tire-engineers were able to develop a new rubber compound without aromatic oils to meet the long mileage demands of cruiser consumers. Further, third-party tests show that the MICHELIN® Commander® II rear tire lasts almost twice as long as its main competitors.*
