One of the most popular tyre manufacturers, Michelin has recently launched the Michelin Road 5 radial dual-compound tyres for two-wheelers in India. The price of Michelin Road 5 starts at Rs 15,160. The company has claimed that this tyre performs better than the Pilot Road 4, which sold over 1.5 million units in four years.

After running the Road 5 tyres for more than 4,500kms, the company claimed that the tyre had improved braking performance and excellent wet grip. The testing of this tyre proved that while braking, the Road 5 stopped earlier than Pilot Road 4. The tyre is made with of the most advanced rubber compound. Road 5 is able to deliver great dry weather grip performance as well. It also comes with improved cornering and straight-line stability.

Road 5 has been produced mostly for the application of Sport Touring as it uses a spied tread pattern with a dual compound construction. The tyre maker has utilised XST X sipe technology and carried it further with the assistance of XST Evo technology. This technology flaunts a blending of reservoirs and sipes created to cut through surface water and enhance the water-clearance capacity of the tyre. In addition to that, the tyre comes with wider grooves for better traction on wet surfaces.

Currently, the tyre maker will be presenting three sizes for the Michelin Road 5, one for the front tyre and other two for the rear tyre. 120/70 ZR17 will be offered as the size for the front tyre, and 190/50 ZR17 and 180/55 ZR 17 will be provided as the size of the rear tyre respectively. Michelin is looking to target big bike owners who have touring intentions as it looks to provide an alternative to the likes of the Pirelli Angel GTs and the Metzeler Roadtec 01s, which are primarily touring-oriented compounds.
