Avon Tyres will support the Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes (LRBB) this year by equipping the charitable organisation’s van and motorcycle fleet. Under the arrangement, the tyre maker will supply Avon ZT7 van tyres and Avon Spirit ST motorcycle tyres, products it says are designed to deal with the variety of roads and weather conditions encountered by the LRBB.
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 launched its latest sport-touring tyres, the Avon Spirit ST, in Portimao earlier this month. The newly appointed brand ambassador, Steve Parrish attended the launch and tested the new tyre. The motorcycle racer turned television commentator has raced on Avon tyres throughout his classic racing career. The manufacturer’s launch video for the tyre is available below.
