The successor to Avon Tyres’ Cobra motorcycle range has arrived. The Cobra, which has built up a reputation in the custom and cruiser segments in the decade since its launch, now hands the baton to the Cobra Chrome. Avon Tyres says the new cruising tourer tyre line offers “improved longevity and more fitment options than ever.”
Having produced its first motorcycle tyres in 1911, British manufacturer Avon Tyres has had time aplenty to hone its range. The current Avon motorcycle tyre portfolio covers numerous bike applications, including road legal race and track day tyres, fitments for smaller capacity commuter bikes, classic, hypersport, adventure sport, custom, touring and cruiser motorcycle products. Avon has also introduced a line of inner tubes.
Avon Tyres has extended its Cobra motorcycle tyre range, introducing four new sizes to suit the latest Harley-Davidson Big Twin model updates. The two new front fitments, 130/60 B19 and 130/60 B21, are suitable for the Street Glide and CVO Breakout models, among others. On the rear, riders can now choose the Cobra in 160/70 B17 and 180/55 B18 sizes.
