Avon Tyres Cobra gets OE nod for two new Triumph motorbikes
Avon Tyres’ Cobra has been selected as the original equipment (OE) fitment tyres for Triumph Motorcycles’ Speedmaster and Bobber Black.
A bespoke version of Avon’s Cobra product was specially designed and selected as the OE fit for the original Bobber when it was launched last October. The Bonneville Speedmaster will target the US market among others. Both bikes are shod with MT90B16 and 150/80R16 Cobra front and rear tyres.
Triumph and Avon worked closely together on an all-new Cobra tyre, with special carcass construction and materials to suit the Bobber’s unique set-up.
Doug Ross, Avon’s head of global motorcycle tyre sales, said, “The Bobber Black and the Cobra tyre have been a great example of two British brands working well together and sharing success over the last year. We are delighted that we can now expand on the relationship we enjoy with Triumph.
“These two beautiful new bikes give their riders a real sense of style. With the Cobra tread pattern, they also deliver excellent high speed manoeuvrability with class leading stability.”
