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.”
Avon Motorcycle Tyres says it is capitalising on the recent surge of interest in British bike brands, adding original equipment fitment contracts to its roster and responding to increased demand for premium whitewall tyres.
Avon Tyres’ Storm 3D X-M has helped Polish stunt rider Maciej “DOP” Bielicki set a new world record for the longest recorded rolling burnout on a motorcycle. Using a specially closed road near the Harley-Davidson dealership in the city of Rzeszów, south-east Poland, Bielicki set the record on his Street Rod bike, spinning the rear wheel for just under three miles.

Avon Tyres has launched a new range of motorcycle tyre inner tubes. Essential for those using conventional spoked rims on modern bikes, or riding with traditional rims on classic machinery, Avon states that the tubes are made from the finest butyl and natural rubbers to meet the highest standards.
Avon Tyres has launched a motorcycle tyre fitment promotion for the 2014 riding season. From 1 April to 30 June, customers buying a pair of Storm 3D X-M, 3D Ultra Sport and 3D Ultra Supersport tyres from approved Avon stockists will get £20 off the fitting fee, or £10 off for one tyre. Avon motorcycle tyres are designed, developed and manufactured in Melksham, Wiltshire.
Avon Tyres has announced an original equipment deal that, while not high volume, certainly sees its tyres on an eye-catching machine. Old Empire Motorcycles, specialists in building bespoke, limited-run motorcycles, has launched its latest custom bike, the Fox. Only five of this limited-run motorcycle, which is based on the classic Royal Enfield Bullet 500, will be built – and all will be fitted with Avon Roadrunner tyres as original equipment.
