Michelin celebrates MotoGP comeback with themed, limited-run tyre
To mark its return to MotoGP, Michelin chose the 2016 Grand Prix de France to take the wraps off the new Pilot Power 3 MotoGP Ltd Edition tyre, a range whose production is limited to 5,000 pairs. The Michelin Pilot Power 3 MotoGP Ltd Edition will go on sale in Europe on 1 June and be available in the front wheel size 120/70 ZR 17 (58W) and rear wheel 180/55 ZR 17 (73W), sizes Michelin says fit a large selection of sports bikes. Each and every tyre will feature the official MotoGP logo on the sidewall.
Upon announcing the debut of the Pilot Power 3 MotoGP Ltd Edition, Michelin comments that the company’s involvement in MotoGP “provides it with an extreme laboratory to develop technological solutions that will later feed into the road tyres it makes for all motorcyclists.”
