Avon Tyres has released a new TrailRider fitment aimed at Honda’s new Africa Twin. The TrailRider adventure touring tyre is now available in 150/70 R18 rear size, a size that also fits the recently introduced KTM 1090 Adventure.
Avon has launched its new TrailRider motorcycle tyre, a product it calls its “most advanced tyre yet”. Making the point that the large trailbike segment has not been a big priority in markets more focused on sportsbikes, tourers, and naked bikes, Avon says that 600cc-plus dirt-styled bikes have become more important over the last decade. Bikes like the BMW R1200 GS and Triumph Adventure are amongst the best sellers in many markets, Avon adds.
Avon Tyres has extended its adventure touring motorcycle tyre range with the launch of a new adventure sport tyre – the Avon Trailrider. The tyre maker says it applied the very latest know-how in terms of casing construction, compound characteristics and tread pattern development to create a tyre it says blends the all-season road capabilities of the critically-acclaimed Storm 3D X-M sport touring tyre with a rugged, off road-styled tread pattern.
