A Tailor-made Tyre For The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250
Michelins new Scorcher Adventure tyre is the beginning of a whole new chapter in the lasting collaboration which was founded on the tyre giants and Harley-Davidsons shared focus on performance, quality and innovation years ago. The Scorcher Adventure, is designed for 80 percent road use and 20 percent trail use while the companies Anakee Wild, is built for high-performance trail use.
That close working relationship which Michelin has forged with Harley-Davidson over the past 13 years is driven by the penchant they share for performance, quality and innovation. Today, almost half of the machines built by the American giant are fitted with the French firm’s products. Now both companies pooled their respective expertise once again during the development of the new and exciting Pan America 1250. The new bike is fitted exclusively with Michelin tyres.
From the outset of the very ambitious Pan America 1250 project, both the Michelin and Harley Davidson engineers employed a host of sophisticated simulation tools to lay the foundations for a tyre that was tailored to the new motorcycle’s characteristics. This initial, virtual phase was followed by no fewer than three development cycles and an exhaustive testing program.
Michelin Scorcher Adventure - Excellence
The result of this joint bid to deliver excellence as well as a long life on both dry and wet roads alike is the all new Michelin Scorcher Adventure. This is a technically advanced premium tyre. It combines innovation and performance. In addition to distinctive looks to make it the perfect match for, what is, an exceptional trail bike.
Thanks to the new tyres specific features, exacting Pan America owners who spend 80 percent of the time on paved roads and 20 percent on trails will be able to enjoy their motorcycle’s capabilities to the full. To ensure optimum performance not only on open roads but also when traveling off-road, the Scorcher Adventure incorporates numerous Michelin innovations, including 2CT+ technology and the very latest-generation compounds for the rear to achieve the required high standard of stability.
Meanwhile down the front, the tyre’s stiff compound ensures nothing short of outstanding steering torque. It facilitates leaning into corners despite the Pan America’s power and weight. Cobranding is another hallmark of the association between both companies. The Scorcher Adventure is no exception. The names of both brands and their respective logos appear on this bespoke tyre’s sidewalls.
Michelin Scorcher Adventure - Performance
For Pan America 1250 owners who use their motorcycle more frequently on unsealed roads, we would propose the Anakee Wild as an option. The innovative design of this alternative solution’s tread makes it ideally suited to up to 50 percent track/trail use. This is thanks to its superior traction performance, agility and directional precision on lose ground.
The Michelin Anakee Wild can be purchased from both Waterford and Dublin Harley-Davidson dealerships.
