Michelin Promotes Power Pure with Complimentary Weight Saving Exhaust
Michelin continues to promote the weight advantages it says its Power Pure motorcycle tyre offers to sportsbike riders – the French giant says that a set of the tyres in sizes 120/70 ZR 17 and 190/50 ZR 17 saves two pounds (around 900 grams) in weight compared to tyres produced in the same category by four of Michelin’s major brand competitors. In the promotion, motorcyclists buying and fitting a pair of Michelin Power Pure tyres between 1 May and 30 June will receive a free Michelin Man digital pressure gauge, and have a chance to win one of 20 Akrapovic slip-on exhausts, making their bikes lighter still.
Michelin says the Power Pure is “the lightest dual-compound tyre ever approved for road use”, with weight saving made possible by the use of its patented Light Tyre Technology. The company believes the weight saved allows increased handling ability with greater responsiveness and enhanced riding pleasure.
The £8.99 (recommended retail price) Michelin Man digital pressure gauge allows riders to set their bike’s tyre pressures accurately to maximise the life of the tyres, and the handling and safety of their bike. The claim form can be obtained from participating tyre dealers or downloaded from Michelin’s UK website.
